6B Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Deadline nears for disaster applications The U.S. Small Business Administration recently reminded small, nonfarm businesses in 39 California counties and neighboring counties in Nevada and Oregon that they have until Sept. 23 to apply for an economic injury disaster loan. These loans are to offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by the drought that began Jan. 14 in the following primary counties, announced Tanya N. Garfield, director of SBA's Disaster Field Operations Center West. Primary California counties: Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Marin, Mendocino, Modoc, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Placer, Plumas, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Y01o and Yuba. Neighboring California counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Del Norte, E1 Dorado, Los Angeles, Monterey, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco and Santa Clara. Neighboring Nevada counties: Carson City, Douglas and Washoe. Neighboring Oregon counties: Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake. "SBA eligibility covers both the economic impacts on businesses dependent on farmers and ranchers that have suffered agricultural production losses caused by the disaster and businesses directly impacted by the disaster," Garfield said. Small, nonfarm businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private, nonprofit organizations of any size may qualify for economic injury disaster loans of up to $2 million to help meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met had the disaster not occurred. "Eligibility for these loans is based on the financial impact of the disaster only and not on any actual property damage. These loans have an interest rate of 4 percent for businesses and 2.625 percent for private, nonprofit organizations, a maximum term of 30 years, and are available to small businesses and most private nonprofits without the fmancial ability to offset the adverse impact without hardship," Garfield said. Businesses primarily engaged in farming or ranching are not eligible for SBA disaster assistance. Agricultural enterprises should contact the Farm Services Agency about U.S. Department of Agriculture assistance made available by the secretary's declaration. However, in drought disasters nurseries are eligible for SBA disaster tssistance. Applicants may apply online using the electronic loan application via SBA's secure website at For owners of these impacted small businesses, disaster loan information and application forms are also available from SBA's Customer Service Center by calling toll-free at 800-659-2955 or emailing disastercustomerservice@sba .gov. Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing may call 800-877-8339.

The 1934 babies, including one couple from Canada, enjoyed a potluck, gift exchange and a poem reading. But the group said the best part of the party was simply getting a chance to see each other and catch up. Photo submitted Drought an issue for upstream areas as well Gia Martynn Special to Feather Publishing Water, the lifeblood of all living things, has been a controversial resource since the West was settled. If one goes on the Internet and searches for information on water wars one will fred current stories of struggles not only in California, but in the southern U.S. and the Middle East. As the world population continues to increase and changing climates affect our precipitation levels, the struggle to meet all the demands for this precious resource will only intensify. Recent news reported that in the southern Central Valley people are stealing water from fire hydrants. Apparently, water theft isn't just a concern in the Central Valley but throughout the state. Law enforcement agencies have been on the watch for water thieves along the coast as well. Living in the Feather River watershed almost seems like a dream when you read stories like this. But we all mus: continue to remind ourselves that we are all in this ogether. Ultimately, whaever happens dowzstream will affect those ofusupstream. Now is the timeto be proactive and do what we can to conserve. We must be willing to work together, because none of us can live without water. Local efforts are being made by water districts throughout Plumas County. Community service districts in Greenville, Quincy, Graeagle and Portola have all asked their customers to help in the conservation efforts by not allowing excessive irrigation that causes water to run off property onto sidewalks, gutters, streets, ditches or storm drains, limiting landscape watering to early morning and evening to reduce evaporation, not allowing washing down of hard or paved surfaces, prohibiting use of potable water in fountains or other decorative water features: Uessit]gpabfi : ' ': ' '' " recirculating system, and only using a hose fitted with a shutoff nozzle to wash an automobile. Some districts have also established alternate watering schedules based on your street address or have limited the total time per week a landowner can water his or her landscape. There are many ways we can help conserve our water. If you are planting for the fall or planning for spring, prioritize your landscape with water-wise plants that use little or no water once established.
