Local Banks Get Involved With Energy Express Pictured left to right are Nancy Cales, Cathy Richmnd and Nancy Richmond. By JR Sisson Energy Express is entering into its sixth week at Hinton Area Elementary School and has been a success so far. Forty local children are enrolled in the program that provides nutritious meals and educational activities for children entering the first through sixth grades. This program helps to encourage children to read and continue to exercise their mind while receiving two nutritional meals a day. Results from the previous years indicate that Energy Express does indeed help children to improve their test scores aider the program. A major reason that our program has been so successful this year is because of the support of the community. The Energy Express site team would like to recognize two local businesses that have been extremely helpful with our program this summer First Century Bank and First Community Bank have given both time and money to assist our program. Nancy Cales and Nancy Richmond, both of whom work at First Century Bank, each came to the school one day and read a book to a group of children. Sue Adkins, representing First Community Bank, also participated as a guest reader at the site one day. In addition to these individuals giving their time, each bank also made a generous donation to Energy Express. Without the support of businesses and organizations like these, our program would not be as successful as it has been. Energy Express is sponsored by the WVU Extension Service and AmeriCorps.

Tuesday, July 29th. 11:00 a.m. /AS00IIIVJ Welcome to the West Virginia Water Festival 606 Stokes Drive, Hinton Considering Nitrogen Needs in Hay Production Dennis A. Rurn Grassland REVIVAL SERVICES NOTICE Technician, West Virginia Conservation Agency With above average rain fall this year, farmers have been concerned With the delay in producing a first cutting of hay. While most hay fields have already become mature and both orchardgrass and timothy has been allowed togo to seed, there has been a large amount of undergrowth that should make up for the loss in quality. The rainfall has been beneficial to pastures, ample moisture for the growth of cool season grasses. With this delay in hay production, it may be necessary for farmers to apply a nitrogeertilizer in order to receive a quick growth of forage before the cool season grasses slow down their growth for the summer. A quick growth of grass from a nitrogen fertilizer can give grass forages a boost in crude protein and provide higher quality forage. Such fertilizers as Ammonia Nitrate (33- 0-0) and Urea (46-0-0) may be used at a rate of 50 Ibs, of Nitrogen per acre. This is equal to about 147 lbe. per acre of ammonia nitrate fertilizer or 75 lbe. per acre of urea fertilizer. Remember, if using urea, only apply it when rainfall is certain within 24 hours. If Urea is applied without rainfall to wash it into the ground, the fertilizer will evaporate at a rate of up to 20% per day in the hot sun and not be of any benefit to the land. If your Hayfield has more than 30% legumes, such as clovers and alfalfa, you may need to consider this before applying nitrogen fertilizer. Legumes have the ability to extract nitrogen from the air. They also have a low tolerance to soils with high levels of nitrogen and can die out if nitrogen is over applied to them. Legumes are often the highest quality forage in a field and may not be worth sacrificing for higher quantities of grass. For optimum productivity of forages, soils should be sampled in both hayfields and pastures; and amendments should be applied accordingly. This is a free service provided by West Virginia University Cooperative Extension Servie. :Kt r jamiing =oil samples to their labrater may picked up at your local extension office. If you have any questions about nutrient management or would like technical assistance in planning conservation grassland management, you can contact a Grassland Technician for the West Virginia Conservation Agency located at your local USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service office.
