ROUND-UP. Wednesday, June 24, 1992 - THE JEWELL COUNTY POST - Page 5 From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Jewell County Extension Agent Great White Shirt Summer '92 fashion headliner is the great white shirt. Whether it's a home sewn or a ready-made oversized shirt/ blouse, this sensational staple is deft- nitely a great staple for all wardrobes. It's also one of those rare items that really can be worn by anyone. Choose crisp white cotton, and look for these details: traditional collar and cuffs, button-front, breast pockets, dropped shoulders, optional shoulder yoke, optional covered front placket. Then individualize it using personal style and creaUvity to carry out the look. Wear the shirt sans (without) embellishment, or enhance it with metallic embroidery, hand-stitched decorative edges, decorative button covers or novelty buttons (the acces- sory of the season). Several patterns and a wide variety of accessories are readily available to allow lots of creativity and fun to im- murge as everyone grabs onto the shirt- tails of this summer fashion. Kansans Did You Know The average rainfall for our state is 27 inches with 70-77% of this moisture occurring between April 1 and Septem- ber 30. Question: How many aluminum cans were used by Americans in 1989~ (80 million aluminum cans or about 16 cans for every person on the planet.) Hint Of The Week: Recycling aluml= num saves 950/0 of the energy used to make the material from scratch (that's a savings equivalent to one can from raw materials versus 20 cans produced for the same energy via recycling). Calendar: June 30: Extension Executive Board meeting, 7:30 p.m., Bul'falo Roam. July I: Applications due for 4-H Family of the year, 4-H Alumni and nominations for 4-H King and Queen.

Haying and Grazing of 1992 ACR and CU/PAY We have had several Inquiries on the possibility of an Emergency Release of 1992 ACR and CU/PAY to allow haying or grazing on the acreage. Current provisions provide that haying and through September 30. To be eligible for haying and grazing due to drought, there is loss criteria to be considered. Along with loss of pro- duction the county must be facing an average of 40 percent or greater reduc- tion of normal precipitation for the four previous consecutive months, plus the days in the current month before the date of request. Jewell counties current loss not counUng the precipitation re- ceived in June is 29 percent. Based upon the county not meeting the loss criteria and forage conditions in the county we are not actively pursu- ing a release at this time.
