The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is now seeking applications from agricultural producers in targeted areas in central and southeastern Pennsylvania for funding to help improve water quality, enhance soil health, and protect agricultural viability through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP).  Created by the 2014 Farm Bill, RCPP connects partners with producers and private landowners to design and implement voluntary conservation solutions that benefit natural resources, agriculture, and the economy.  NRCS funding to producers and landowners is made available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).  Applicants should contact their local USDA NRCS Service Center (found at www.farmers.gov/connect) for additional information and application procedures.

 

Trespassing charges have been filed against a Lewistown man.  According to Lewistown Borough Police, 49-year-old Thomas Stine returned to 66 Central Avenue numerous times in mid-November after being evicted from the residence in January.  Stine was charged with felony criminal trespass and transported to the Mifflin County Correctional facility.

 

The “Battle of the Morning Shows” raised more than $8,000 to benefit the Salvation Army.  The total raised between MERF Radio, Bigfoot Country and Big Lewie was $8,021.80.  MERF was the winner, followed by Bigfoot and Big Lewie.  All money raised stays in the area to help those in need through the Salvation Army.

 

The American Red Cross will be in Mifflin County for two blood drives today.  The blood mobile will be at Ohesson on Green Avenue in Lewistown from 12:30 pm to 6:00 pm.  The Red Cross will also be at Hose Company #1 on College Avenue in Milroy from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm.
