DISTRICT HOME ECONOMIST NEWS (Christine Poss, District Home Economist) If your young adult is graduating this year and ready to leave the nest he or she may be interested in a couple of papers and a publication written especially for young people. Two papers cover skills needed when young adults leave home to pursue education or career opportunities. The first paper "Establishing New Relationships" helps a young adult to make a new circle of friends when he/she leaves home. The second paper "Starting Out: The Initial Steps to Managing Money" will be useful to those who need the basics from writing cheques to setting goals and budgets. Two additional papers examine the area of teen and family issues, the papers are "When Home is Not a Safe Place to Be (Fam­ily Violence and You)" and "Your Parents' Divorce: Surviving the Rollercoaster Ride". For this year's program, one paper may be ordered at no cost. Additional papers are 504 each. For further information, write to Rural Education and Development Association, 14815 119 Ave. Edmonton, Alberta, T5L 2N9 or phone 451-5959.

The two disposal con­tainers, located at the Garbage Disposal sta­tion and at the West of Tanners Lumber Yard are full. At the present time there is no way of disposing of this paper for recycling purposes. We have been trucking this paper to Lethbridge but they can no longer take it. We have tried unsuccessfully everywhere to find an outlet, no luck, (what a shame). We hope that in the future a recycling station will be open. For the time being this pro­ject is on hold. CAMP Kitchen: We are installing new sliding panels at the campkitchens. Previously the Lions Club had installed fibreglass windows, but thanks to vandalism, they were broken out.

We hear a variety of states of crop seeding " finished; almost finished; half finished to started. How many of you keep a dairy? We have one for years and it's interesting to thumb through the pages and years and see what's happ­ened at this particular time of year. Last year seeding was finished, the garden was planted, the fruit trees had been frosted, and because of the very dry condit­ions the sprinklers were going on the pastures and hay land. Checking back on the past four years,, conditions were similar. The rains are now causing some concern but we are sure the parched earth of the past few years welcomes the much needed moisture in our area of Alberta. What a beautiful green landscape we have. On Monday morning we were listening to the radio and heard the announcer tell of the devasting dust storms that had been raging in the Acadia Valley area north of Medicine Hat the past three days. Which would we rather have - or the wind? (Please Mr. Weatherman - don't carried away with either!!) from just kept back the rain get FOR SALE: "Out houses" - insulated Rockport Colony. and wired.
