Why raislm dante Raisins dance because they're buoy- ant. The old dancing raisin trick can help your child learn a new word. Drop a few raisins in a cup of clear carbon- ated soda water. They'll rise to the surface and then sink. Ask ~your child to figure out why the raisins dance. Your child might notice that bubbles stick to the raisins. The bubbles help raisins float to the top. When the bubbles pop, down go the raisins. Help your child look up the word buoyancy in the dictionary.

Also eli- gible because they are contiguous are the counties of Clay, Cloud, Geary, Marion, McPherson, Mitchell, Morris, Osborne, Ottawa, Saline, Smith and Washington. Morton County is also designated as a primary disaster area because of drought and high winds that occurred Jan. 1 and continuing. Also eligible because they are contiguous are Stanton and Stevens Counties. These counties were designated on Oct. 20, making all qualified farm op- erators eligible for low-interest emer- gency loans from the Farm Service Agency, provided eligibility require- ments are met. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for the loans to help cover part of their actual losses. USDA has also made other pro- grams available to assist farmers and ranchers, including the Emergency Conservation Program, Federal Crop Insurance and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers may contact their local FSA Service Centers for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs.
