Even though I feel the evidence to back up the claims is abundant, I should have followed journalistic protocol more strictly. Hyperbole: 1. obvious and intentional exaggeration. 2. an extravagant statement or figure of Speech not intended to be taken literally, as "to wait an eternity,  . ,.. In case you didn't catch it, my editorial last week contained some hyperbole. I was hoping my remark about real estate agents would not be taken as a blanket statement about them, but it did offend at least one, for which I apologize. Also, in my article about the Cow Creek Road, I should have said that at least someof the Sale Every Tuesday in June. No Sale July 3rd, 17th, & 31 st. Sale July 10th & 24th.

Emmett, Idaho 83617 The Adams County Record New USDA rules give more flexibility for haying and grazing BY CANDACE F. MOORE New flexibility in the Farm Service Agency's Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) rules will allow more coun- ties to authorize emer- gency haying and grazing on Conservation Reserve Program lands. The change means that Emergency Haying and Grazing of CRP acre- age may be authorized to provide relief to livestock producers in areas affect- ed by a severe drought or similar natural disaster. To take advantage of the emer- gency haying and grazing provisions, authorized pro- ducers can use the CRP acreage for their own live- stock Or may grant another livestock producer use of the CRP acreage upon writ- ten approval from the FSA county office. The practice cannot begin until after the Primary Nesting Season ends August 1, and grazing livestock must be removed from the CRP acres by Sept. 30. Under these new provi- sions, CRP participants can sell or donate hay to any livestock producer. "Giving counties local authority will allow farm- ers and ranchers to make the most of the window of opportunity for haying and grazing CRP acres' said Dick Rush, Executive Director of Idaho Farm Service Agency. Before CRP acreage is declared eligible for haying or grazing farmers must modify their current con- servation plan. The modi- fied conservation plan must be site specific, include the authorized duration, and reflect local wildlife needs and concerns. The pri- mary purpose must be to maintain vegetative cover, minimize soil erosion, and protect water quality and wildlife habitat quality. They should contact their local FSA office as soon as they begin to see a need for emergency haying and grazing. County eligibility is based on a county FSA committee request docu- menting a 40 percent or greater loss in normal hay and pasture production. The CRP-authorizing leg- islation requires a payment reduction to be assessed. Generally, CRP partici- pants are assessed a haying or grazing payment reduc- tion of 25 percent. For 2012 only, the 25 percent hay- ing and grazing payment reduction has been reduced to 10 percent.
