Rural Missouri - February 2011 - (Page 22)

I want my KMOS-TV! Thanks to a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development, viewers in 33 central Missouri counties will see an increase in service from the public television station KMOS-TV. In December, the station received nearly a half-million-dollar grant to aid in the station’s ongoing efforts to improve digital television in its rural service area. The grant will be used to upgrade the station’s equipment, which will allow KMOS-TV to expand its service in rural areas, offering broader coverage in the form of local programming, while providing improved editing and production capabilities. For more than 30 years, KMOS-TV has been serving more than 800,000 rural citizens with high quality, award-winning and commercial-free local and national programs for all ages. The station is licensed to the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg and is powered by a staff of professionals and university students. To find out more about KMOS-TV, visit www.kmos.org or call 800-7533436. N E W S help keep the cost of permits low. Beginning March 1, Missourians will be able to purchase sport hunting, fishing and trapping permits online through the Missouri Department of Conservation’s e-Permits System and print them at home. Permits have been available online since 2002, but now instead of waiting for them to arrive later in the mail, turkey and deer hunters can buy, print and be out in the woods in no time. Procedures for tagging deer and turkey will change slightly in that permits will no longer include a removable transportation tag. Instead, the permit itself will be the transportation tag. Since e-Permits will not be printed on traditional yellow permit stock, MDC suggests hunters place them in plastic sandwich bags, laminate them or use some sort of weatherproofing protection from outdoor elements. When fully implemented, the new system is expected to save about $500,000 annually in state funds. To find out more about e-Permits, B R I E F S visit www.mdc.mo.gov and search e-Permits. Results of the audits will include detailed recommendations on equipment and other energy-efficiency improvements. Costs of the audits, $1,500 per farm and $500 per residence, are reimbursed by the grant after implementation of efficiency measures. More information is available from EnSave by calling 800-732-1399 or visiting www.mda.mo.gov/abd/ financial/maestro.php. Not just a music conductor A statewide program designed to reduce costs through energy-efficiency improvements on small Missouri livestock and poultry farms is now in effect. MAESTRO, the Missouri Agricultural Energy Savings Team - A Revolutionary Opportunity, aims to serve farms that are too small to require a confined animal feeding operation permit. Funding for the program comes from a $5 million U.S. Department of Energy grant and will be implemented by a team from University of Missouri Extension, the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority and EnSave, a private firm specializing in agricultural energy efficiency. Thanks to the program, farmers can receive a comprehensive energy audit of both their farms and homes. Join the corps! High school and college students looking for a paid summer job helping out the Show-Me State are in luck again this year thanks to the State Parks Youth Corps. The job program returns for a second year, employing Missourians between the ages of 17 and 21. It will run between April 1 and Nov. 30. In 2010, State Park Youth Corps members did a variety of tasks from routine maintenance work and trail construction to interpretation and social media efforts at the state’s 85 state parks and historic sites. The program is similiar to that of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which developed much of the Missouri State Park system in the 1930s. Applications will be accepted online beginning Feb. 1. Visit www.thinkoutside.mo.gov for more information and how to apply for State Park Youth Corps.
