The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ Georgia Ag Forecast seminar at Unicoi State Park has been canceled due to potentially hazardous winter conditions in White County and north Georgia. It is the policy of the Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series to cancel events for weather reasons only when the local school systems have canceled classes. As of 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, White County Schools have canceled class for Friday, Jan. 22. The Georgia Ag Forecast staff will work to reschedule the seminar in the coming weeks. All of those who registered for the Jan. 22 seminar at Unicoi State Park in White County will be notified by email of the rescheduled date as soon as it’s available. If the staff is not able to reschedule the seminar or if participants cannot attend the reschedule date, refunds will be issued. As of Thursday evening, the four remaining sessions will still be held as planned: Bainbridge on Monday, Jan. 25; Tifton on Tuesday, Jan. 26; Alma on Wednesday, Jan. 27; and Macon on Friday, January 29. At Georgia Ag Forecast, economists from the university’s Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED) and from the college’s Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics deliver an economic outlook focusing on Georgia’s major commodities and the way that global markets, weather patterns and historical trends will affect those commodities. In addition to the annual economic outlook, CAED Director Kent Wolfe and fellow UGA agricultural economist Sharon P. Kane will give a briefing on the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption, often referred to as “GATE,” and how it is reflected in county sales tax revenue. For information, visit georgiaagforecast.com.
Seven more Vermont counties have been awarded economic stimulus funding for energy efficiency and conservation projects through a block grant program created in legislation authored by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). County-specific block grants were awarded to Windham County for $130,800, Orange County for $115,800, Windsor County for $193,300, Washington County for $254,600, Chittenden County for $195,400, Rutland County for $189,700, and Addison County for $153,700. Block grants were awarded in September to Caledonia, Franklin, and Orleans Counties. The State of Vermont and its cities and towns also were awarded $10.3 million in March under the same program.Sanders, chairman of the Senate environment committee’s Green Jobs and New Economy Subcommittee, authored legislation that established the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program. The grants may be used to update building codes to require construction of energy-efficient homes and businesses, retrofit old buildings with newer technology, utilize alternative energy, and create incentives for residents to car pool or ride buses. “The block grant program recognizes the importance of local efforts to create good-paying jobs in developing sustainable energy and promoting energy efficiency,” Sanders said. “What I particularly like about this approach is that it relies on local initiatives and grassroots participation.” Sanders, along with Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Representative Peter Welch (D-Vt.), wrote a letter to Energy Secretary Steven Chu asking him to reverse a regulatory decision that initially excluded counties in New England states. In response, the department established a process for counties and “county equivalent” bodies, such as regional planning commissions in Vermont, to seek these funds. Vermont counties, through regional planning commissions, appealed to the Department of Energy for block grant funding. The funding formula excludes the populations of cities and large towns which were eligible for their own grants. Source: Senator Sanders’ office. WASHINGTON, October 8, 2009 –
