you need to make a change.
The Aug. 26 primary ballot

According to Dr. Eugene
Charbonneau. director of

primary care. This has led to
high percentages of untreat-

increased risk factors for
other health diseases.
Staffed with a Registered
Nurse, health care sites will
offer basic medical services
including immunizations and

checks. In addition to med-

Downtown Farmers Market



gets thumbs up from Council


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
It's a go! Blountstown
Main Street members have
received the nod of approval
from City Council members
on their proposal to create a
downtown farmers market.
The market is scheduled
to be held the first Saturday
of each month. Main Street
is seeking the greenspace
next to Wakulla Banik and is
awaiting final approval to,
utilize that location as a kick-
off site. Members hope the
market will grow to include
other areas of downtown
such as Magnolia Square.
and even down North Pear
Street toward the train park
and greenway entrance.
Opening day is set for.
Saturday, Sept. 6, from 8
a.m. to noon. The market
will feature fresh produce
(vendor grown' and sold),
homemade baked goods,
handmade drafts, and origi-
nal works of art. Live enter-
tainment will add to the fes-
tive atmosphere. Organizers
are also seeking horsedrawn
carriage rides and hope to
eventually include strolling


characters.
After running an article
,seeking interest last month,
calls and emails have been
plentiful. Everything from
muscadine grapes and fresh
oranges from South Florida
(the grower is actually a
Blountstown native) to
handmade pottery and origi-


nal paintings are among the.
items you can expect to find
at the market.
Anyone who is interested
in being a vendor or volun-
teer, please call 899-0500 or
email news@thecounty
record.net.
* Blountstown Main Street
is scheduled to meet


Monday, July 28, at 11:30
a.m. on the back porch of

is growing and anyone inter-
ested in getting involved

is urged to attend.
Volunteers are needed to
help with exciting projects
such as the farmers market.

Scary storm spawns lesson


A frighlening storm that
blew ltifough Blountstown

huddling together in the hall-

sra.,\red a lesson in weather
and emergencies when
Blountstown Fire Chief Ben
Hall invited WJHG Channel 7
weatherman Jason Kelley to
speak with the children
(above) last week. The les-
son continued the following
day when air medics landed

DRILL Act would allow drilling in over 20 million acres in Alaska

Boyd votes for increased,


responsible domestic drilling


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd voted
last week for legislation to
increase the responsible domes-
tic production of oil and natural
gas, particularly in more than
20 million acres of the National,
Petroleum Reserve in Alaska
(NPR-A). The Drill
Responsibly in Leased. Lands
(DRILL) Act (HR 6515) would
allow for the development of.
the NPR-A's 20 million acres,
which has an estimated 10.6
billion barrels of recoverable oil,
and if produced, along with the
68 million acres of already-
leased land, U.S. oil production
could nearly double.
"This bill is a common sense
approach to our near-term
energy crisis," said
Congressman Boyd. "I am a
strong proponent of responsible
domestic drilling, including the

The Blue Foundation for a

making a constructive contribu-
tion to the health and well-
being of all Floridians espe-
cially the uninsured and under-
served. This grant is one of 14,
totaling more than $1 million,
The Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida will present
this summer to nonprofit health
clinics and community outreach
programs across Florida.
"The Calhoun County
Health Department is acutely
aware of their community's
health needs," said Susan
Towler, executive director, The
Blue Foundation for a Healthy
Florida. "They recognized a
problem and have created a
solution. We're proud to help
make this solution a success."

The Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida awards grants
during two grant cycles per
year. With the completion of
the 2008 summer grant cycle,
..The,,le Foundation will have
presented 158 grants and 20
awards totaling more than

in 2001.

opening of the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge, but we must
remember that drilling is only
one small component of what is
needed to lower gas prices and
end our energy crisis. To really
and truly end our dependence
on foreign oil, we must develop
a long term energy strategy that
not only increases domestic
energy production, but also
addresses climate change, fuel
diversity, renewable energy
sources, and technology devel-
opment."
The DRILL Act would
unleash the vast potential of the
National Petroleum Reserve by
requiring annual federal oil and
gas lease sales and. by facilitat-
ing the construction of pipelines
to connect the NPR-A with the
,existing Central North Slope
transportation infrastructure


and the Trans-Alaskan
Pipeline. The legislation alsd
makes the construction of th4
Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline ,
priority so that stranded natural
gas can be transported to the,
rest of the country.
Unfortunately, the DRILL
Act failed to receive the neces-
sary support to pass in thed
House of Representatives.
"The people of Northt
Florida want real relief at the
pump, not the political bicker-'
ing that has plagued
Washington for. far' too 'long,"'
Boyd statedd' "We must stop
yelling across the aisle to score
political points and start work-
ing together. I will continue t4
work with all of my colleagues
in Congress towards a balanced
and comprehensive approach to
our long term energy needs."

'Endless Sununmmer' dance


MARIANNA-Celebrate
the season with Chipola
College's "Endless Summer"
dinner and dance, Saturday,
Aug. 23.
Just as the Beach Boys'
"Endless Summer" .album
brings to mind a simpler time
with hits like "Surfin' USA,"
"Be True to Your School" and
"Fun, Fun, Fun," this event will
reunite old Chipola friends and
alumni for a relaxing evening to
benefit the college's athletic
programs.
Released in 1974, "Endless
Summer" spent 155 weeks on
the Billboard album chart,
peaking at #1, and selling over
three .million copies. Chipola
College began in 1947 and has
enjoyed more than 60 great
years including numerous state
and national athletic titles, and
thousands of individual success
stories among its graduates.
Organizer Robert Trammell,
says, "While music has evolved
from Big Band to Rock N' Roll
and Hip Hop during Chipola's
60 years, the bonds and friend-
ships built at this little college
have remained constant."

The Ivey Brothers band will
provide the perfect musical
backdrop for the occasion.
Kermit Davis, Head
Basketball Coach at Middle
Tennessee State, is the special


guest for the event. Tickets are
$50 per person with a social
hour at 6:30 p.m. Tables of
eight are available for $400.
Chipola's favorite cook Bobby


Sims will prepare his famous,
mouth-watering barbecue for
the dinner. .

Volunteers needed to



continue soccer league


The Calhoun County Youth
Soccer League Board needs at
least three new' members for
the 2008 season and beyond.
Without you, there will not be a
youth league this fall.
At the end of last year's sea-

parents that we needed new


volunteers to run the program.
We, Judy Ludlow and Carl
Bennett, are willing to help in
this transition, but can no
longer manage the program.
We have been coordinating this
league for a number of years
and are proud of how it has
grown in our community.


Please consider volunteering
for this rewarding and impor-
tant Calhoun County Program.
The league is now nine years
old and 230 children strong!!
Let's keep it going! Call Judy
(674-2360) or Carl (674-8063)

Keller proving

Nationwide

independents

can run strong

By RICK MINTER
Cox News Service
NASCAR's Nationwide
Series has been dominated
by Sprint Cup teams and
drivers for years, many rac-
ing in the No. 2 series be-
-cause the cars were similar
and teams could gain knowl-
edge on Saturday that would
help them in Sunday's main
events.
But this year, the Sprint
Cup Series is

Tomorrow
exclusively,
so there's not
as much in-
formation to
be gained
KELLER from racing
in
Nationwide, which uses a
very different car. Even so,
the double-dipping Cup driv-
ers and teams are dominat-
ing the No. 2 circuit.
But the Nationwide inde-
pendents still get an occa-
sional share of the spotlight:
Jason Keller and his CJM
Racing team finished third at
Gateway International
Raceway Saturday night.
The initial assumption is
that a recently announced al-
liance with Joe Gibbs Racing
was the reason for the strong
run, but Keller said in his
post-race comments that the
upcoming partnership was-
n't a factor.
"It's more of an '09 pro-
gram," Keller said. "We are
going to switch to Toyotas
next year. I say we ... CJM is
going to switch. I hope I'm
part of that. I don't know
yet."
Keller said the upcoming
relationship with Gibbs will
help his team, which was
started last year as a part-
time effort, running 15 races.
CJM is owned by Bryan and
Terry Mullett and has only a
handful of employees.
"It's great for a small race
team like ours to be aligned
with such a dominant race
team like Joe Gibbs," Keller
said. "It's great to discuss
that, but what's gotten us to
this point is guys busting
their tails all winter long
building race cars. I don't
want to lose sight of that
fact."
.Keller's run at Gateway
was his best of the season,
but he consistently has been
strong in recent weeks, hav-
ing finished in the top 11 in
three of the past six races.
He's 10th in the points stand-
ings.
One of the key players on
the CJM team, which is
made up of several former
employees of the idled ppc
Racing team, is car chief
Steve Helwig, who recently
was diagnosed with
leukemia and missed the
Gateway race.
"He's been with this race
team since it started," Keller
said. "It's a lot of his hard
work as well."


Racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway is "a huge event," says Kyle Petty.


At Indianapolis, the racing takes a backseat to ...





History&





tradition


By RICK MINTER
Cox News Service
rn he Sprint Cup circuit
eads to Indianapolis
Motor Speedway this
weekend for the Allstate 400
at The Brickyard, a race that
many rank just under the
Daytona 500 in NASCAR
prestige.
But that doesn't mean it's
always a great race. In fact,
it's often the opposite. It's the
history and heritage of the
track that makes it big.
It's being able to race on
the same course that Ray
Harrouh traversed in his
Marmon Wasp to win the
first Indianapolis 500 in 1911.
It's a chance to be called a
winner at the same track
where Wilbur Shaw won
three times in four years be-
tween 1937 and 1940, where
Bill Vukovich Sr. won in '53
and '54, then died while lead-
ing in '55, and Where drivers'
names like Foyt, Andretti
and Unser became house-
hold words.
"I won't call it a big race,
but I'll call it a big event,"
Kyle Petty said. "We have big
races on our circuit... but
Indy has always been a huge
event. A lot of prestige be-
cause it's Indy, but not much
of a race unless you get a
caution in the last eight or 10
laps. Then it gets to be a real-
ly good race."
Petty said when NASCAR
first got to race at Indy in
1994, it was a major moment
in the history of what had
been, up to that point, prima-
rily a Southern sport.
'"At the time that race
came along, our sport was
looking for something else, a
little bit of a boost. TV rat-
ings had kind of leveled off,"
Petty said. "It needed some-
thing, and it got it there."
Few drivers on the circuit
have as much appreciation
for the heritage of


Indianapolis Motor
Speedway than Tony
Stewart, who grew up in
Columbus, Ind., just 50 miles
from the famous track.
A few years ago, Stewart,
who won the 400 in 2005 and
2007, sat in the track's infield
with a reporter
*and described
his home track
as a sacred, hal-
lowed place.
"The last time
I did double duty
[driving in both
the Indy 500 and
the Coca-Cola
600 in Charlotte
on the same day]
I was staying in
my motor home
in the infield,"
Stewart said. "I
got back from an
event at 2 o'clock Tony Ste
in the morning, climbs th
and I'm the only after win
one walking Ind 2
around there. Indy in 2
"You're stand-
ing there and you swear you
can hear people and hear
race cars going around
there. To me, Indianapolis
Motor Speedway is just like a
living, breathing organism."
The track Stewart holds so
dear almost didn't survive to
become the racing palace it
is today.
Designed primarily as a.
proving ground for the bud-
ding automobile industry it
opened for racing on Aug. 19,
1909, with a dirt surface.
Five people one driver,
two riding mechanics and
two fans were killed, and
numerous others were seri-
ously injured during the ini-
tial three-day event. In the
middle of the carnage, the
300-mile main event was
stopped after 235 miles and
declared no contest.
The dirt racing surface re-
ceived much of the blame, so
the track was paved with the


e
he
ni
o(


famous layer o1 3.2 million
bricks, since paved over with
asphalt except for a small
strip of bricks at the finish
line.
Racing at the speedway
thrived until the.mid-1920s
when the original owners,
faced with hefty
maintenance
bills, decided to
sell the track.
Eddie
Rickenbacker, the
World War I fly-
ing ace, led a
group that paid
$750,000 for the
track. But then
came the Great
Depression.
n 1933, five
people were
killed, two in
qualifying and
wart three in the race.
fence The purse was
ng at cut and there was
05 a brief drivers'
strike. In 1942,
racing was sus-
pended for World War II. By
1945, the track had fallen
into a dilapidated state.
Businessman Tony
Hulman, and Wilbur Shaw,
who became speedway presi-
dent, stepped in with money *
and effort to save the storied
track from ruin.
Stewart said he and many
others are forever indebted
.to Rickenbacker, Hulman,
Shaw and the others who
played a role in saving the
speedway
"I've been to tracks that
have shut down, and it sends
a chill down my spe ine a
good way from the stand-
point of knowing the history
and what the tracks have
meant to how racing has
evolved into what it is today,"
he said. "The same g es with
Indianapolis. It would have
been the biggest natural dis-
aster to let a place likfgthat
go to ruin." ..

Big cuts for racing 2,283; behind: -598
Tough times for Detroit
automakers likely will lead to significant changes in
the motorsports world, which for years has benefit-
ed from liberal spending by Ford, General Motors
and Chrysler.
The Associated Press reported last week that
among the $10 billion in budget cuts by GM will be
some of its racing money The AP also reported that
GM has notified two NASCAR race tracks, Bristol
Motor Speedway and New Hampshire Motor
Speedway that sponsoring agreements with those
facilities won't be renewed.
There has been no official word on how the spend-
ing cuts will affect race teams that participate in
NASCAR, NHRA and other series, but indications
are that there will be cuts across the board.
NASCAR officials have pointed out that they be-
lieve racing has proven to be a reliable way for au-
tomakers to reach potential car buyers.
Davis team tough in Truck Series
It hasn't been the best of times on the Sprint Cup
circuit for car owners Bill and Gail Davis. They
haven't won a Cup race since 2002. But in the
Craftsman Truck Series, where they began, compet-
ing in 2004, it's an entirely different story
Johnny Benson's victory Saturday at Kentucky
Speedway was their 20th in the series and third this
season. That race was a particularly good one for
the Davis camp because Mike Skinner won the pole
and rookie entry Michael Annett finished second to
Benson, who now is on top of the points standings
by a point.,
"Week in and week out, Trip [Bruce, crew chief]"
gives me something that is capable of winning the
race, or at least running in the top five, for sure,"
Benson said. "If we can see the front and get there,
I'm clearly confident that if we work hard, we'll get
there. Bill and Gail Davis gave me a great opportu-
nity to have fun. This is way cool for us."

CATCHING UP WITH ...


RICK CRAWFORD


Veteran driver Rick Crawford
of Mobile, Ala., has become one
of the backbones of the
Craftsman
Truck Series.
Crawford, driver
of the No. 14
Ford owned by
Texas business-
man Tom
Mitchell, is tied
with Jack
Sprague for most CRAWFORD
career starts, with 285.
Crawford recently participated
in a teleconference with re-
porters, including Rick Minter
of Cox News Service, to discuss
the season:

On racing occasionally
with Sprint Cup Series points
leader Kyle Busch: "I'd just
like to catch him... I don't think
he's hit me yet, so it's been fun
racing against Kyle. I watch
him on the other Saturday and
Sunday shows, and I think that

a lot of the Nationwide drivers
and Cup drivers probably
would like for him to come back
and run the trucks full time."

On his longevity in the
sport: "I was a car racer. I raced
at our local Friday night,
Saturday night short tracks
down South, then I started ven-
turing out and running the All
Pro Series of NASCAR. Then at
the end of the 1996 season my
boss, Tom Mitchell of Circle
Bar Motel and RV park in
Texas, came to me and said, 'I'm
in the trucking business; I serv-
ice the truck service guys
throughout the country ... Why
don't we try this truck racing?' I
was ready to go. We've been
with Ford for all of our starts.
I've been with Tom Mitchell in
all of the starts in the NASCAR
Craftsman Truck Series, and
hopefully I'll end my career at
Circle Bar Racing driving for
Tom Mitchell."


On how he's been able to
consistently run up front for
so many years: "I like to win. I
like to be competitive. I have a
pretty hard drive for competing
and racing.
"I'm not one of those that
rides around. I want to race
hard. I want to give my spon-
sors what they're paying for. I
want to give my owner what he
deserves, and I want to give the
fans what they pay to see. So if
it takes putting on a show, that's
what I want to do and that's
what I've always done, and
hopefully everybody's enjoyed
that."'
On why the Truck Series is

so competitive and has such
a tight points race: "It's due to
a lot of strong teams. Some
have had trouble, but the
NASCAR Craftsman Truck
Series is very strong in competi-
tion. Week in and week out, we
have tough races. We're all com-
petitive. So it's going to be a
tight points battle all the way to
the end."

On the addition of a second
team: "We started the second
team to enhance the perform-
ance of the [No.] 14 truck. We
believe that some additional in-
formation was needed to run
for a championship."

In the tough economic times that we face today, it is critical to have board members
that will spend our tax dollars wisely. I will use the personal knowledge that I have
gained as a businessman and as a board member, especially Chipola College, to make
sure that our hard earned tax dollars are spent wisely and for the benefit of the
students throughout the county. I would never vote to spend $892,000.00 of our
savings to hire an architect to design a school on property that we did not own and
did not purchase. It is imperative that all options are properly studied before any
money is spent.


I have the Experience, Leadership, Dedication, Passion,
Energy, and most of all Common Sense to do the best job for
the School Board District 1 Position.

I will try to visit personally with everyone but I know that will be difficult to do. If I
miss you or if you have any questions or would like for me to visit you, you may
contact me at: Office 674-5478 Cell 899-6472

Challenge and victory.
These two words are
probably the most
.. descriptive of human
life you can find.
Challenge begins at
birth-the challenge of,
i77m Adams an infant to learn to
wFuea o talk, walk, run. Then
upon accomplishment,
the victory. All through
life the process continues. Many new
challenges not as many victories, but
victory just the same.
The very fiber of life is trying and winning,
or maybe losing. The challenge you face is
of utmost importance, and sometimes the
winning is important...then there are times
when losing is just as important. Win or
lose. if you tried you fulfilled your obligation
to yourself.
imagine a person who never found it
necessary to ask a single question who
:never had to solve a problem. Suppose
thare was a person of such wisdom of
person of such wisdom that he never had to
search for a soluton.,and as a result never
h'iw the thrill of a challenge, having never
challenged, they never tasted victory.

USDA waiving requirements,


offering help to area farmers


USDA's Farm Service.
Agency (FSA) will allow pro-
ducers who would otherwise be
ineligible for the new disaster
assistance programs to become
eligible by paying a fee as
required by the Food,
Conservation and Energy Act of
2008 (the 2008 Act).
The 2008 Act requires pro-
ducers who wish to participate
in the new disaster programs to
have crop insurance or non-
insured crop disaster assistance
(NAP) coverage for the land for
which assistance is being
requested, and for all farms in
all counties in which they have
an interest. Since the 2008 Act
was enacted after the applica-


tion periods had closed for those
programs, producers who did
not have such coverage could
not comply with this require-
ment in order to be eligible for
the new disaster programs.
However, the 2008 Act author-
izes a waiver that allows pro-
ducers to pay a fee, called a
"buy-in" fee, to be eligible for
this new disaster assistance.
Every producer whose crops,
including grazing lands, are not
fully covered by crop insurance
or NAP may take advantage of
this one-time opportunity. The
buy-in fee is due no later than
Sept. 16, 2008, 90 days after
the date of enactment, as
required by the 2008 Act.


Those who miss this opportuni-
ty will not be eligible for disas-
ter assistance. Producers are
also reminded that the payment
of the applicable buy-in fee does
not afford the producer crop
insurance or NAP coverage; it
only affords eligibility for the
2008. disaster programs.
The crop insurance and
NAP coverage requirements'
will be waived in 2008 for pro-
ducers who did not obtain crop
insurance or NAP coverage by
the applicable sales closing
date, if the producer files an
application for waiver and pays
a buy-in fee in an amount equal

Hospital patios courtesy of Main Street

Calhoun-Liberly Hospital has received two new patio areas, courtesy of Blountstown Main Street.
Doris Traylor, who serves on the Main Street board and has a special place in her heart.for the hospital,
proposed the service project to provide a seating area for hospital' visitors, as well as those waiting for
outpatient services. Pictured at one of the patios are (seated, from left) Doris Traylor, Summer Hill, Vicki
Montford,. Ron Gilliard, (standing) Phillip and Angie Hill, and James Woods. Although Main Street's
focus is on revitalizing the downtown area, members agreed to join community members and other
local civic groups in showing support for the hospital through this project,

USDA help cont'd-

to the 2008 applicable NAP However, Congress determined


coverage or catastrophic risk
protection plan fee for the crop
or grazing lands.
Producers who meet the def-
inition of "Socially
Disadvantaged, Limited
Resource," or "Beginning
Farmer or Rancher," do not
have to ,meet the Risk
Management Purchase
Requirement, and, therefore,
are not required to pay the buy-
in fee.
The buy-in fee for 2008 eli-
gibility only for either the cata-.
strophic risk protection insur-
ance (CAT) or NAP is $100 per
crop, but not more than $300
per producer per administrative
county, or $900 total per pro-
ducer for all counties less any
previously paid fees for CAT
and/or NAP
Producers can contact their
local administrative FSA
County Office to file the appli-
cation for waiver and pay the
applicable fees.
The applicable buy-in form
(CCC-752,2008 Supplemental
Agricultural Disaster
Assistance Buy-In for Insurable
Crops and CCC-753,2008
Supplemental Agricultural
Disaster Assistance Buy-In for
Noninsurable Crops)must be
completed and applicable fees
paid by Sept. 16, 2008.
Payment of the applicable fees
will allow the producer to be eli-
gible for benefits for losses
under Supplemental Revenue
Assistance Payments (SURE)
Program, Livestock Forage
Disaster Program (LFP), Tree
Assistance Program (TAP), and
Emergency Assistance
Livestock, Honeybees and
Farm-Raised Fish Program
(ELAP).
The 2008 Act authorizes
funds to be used to make pay-
ments to farmers and ranchers
incurring eligible crop produc-
tion/quality losses under the
SURE Program, grazing losses
under LFP livestock death loss-
es under LIP, and losses suf-
fered by producers of livestock,
honeybees, and farm-raised fish
under ELAP The 2008 Act
also authorizes TAP
To be eligible for SURE,
TAP, and ELAP, producers
must meet .the Risk
Management Purchase
Requirement by purchasing at
least the CAT level of crop
insurance for all insurable crops
and/or NAP coverage for non-
insurable crops. To be eligible
for LFPI producers must meet
theft "'Risk 'Management
Purchase Requirement by pur-
chasing or obtaining for the
grazing land incurring the losses
where assistance is being
requested, a policy or plan of
insurance under the Federal
Crop Insurance Act, including
pilot programs, such as the
Pasture, Rangeland. Forage
Program (PRF) or NAP cover-
age by filing the required
paperwork and paying' the
administrative fee by the appli-
cable State filing deadline. The
Risk Management Purchase
Requirement does not apply to
LIPE
The SURE program will be
available to ,eligible producers
on farms in disaster counties,
designated by the Secretary,
including contiguous counties
that have incurred crop produc-
tion losses and/or crop quality
losses during the crop year.


that payments would not occur
until the calculation at the end
of the marketing year.
It also will 'be available to
any farm where, during the cal-
endar year, the total loss of pro-
duction on the farm, because of
weather, is greater than 50 per-
cent of the normal production of
the farm.
The LFP program will be
available to eligible livestock
producers who suffered grazing
losses for eligible livestock,
because of drought on land that
is either native or improved
pastureland with permanent
vegetative cover or planted to a
crop specifically for providing
grazing. The LFP program will
also be available to eligible live-
stock producers who suffered
grazing losses for eligible live-
stock, because of fire on range-
land managed by a "Federal
agency, if the eligible livestock
producer is prohibited from
grazing the normal permitted
livestock on the managed
rangeland.
The LIP program will be
available to eligible livestock
producers on farms that have
incurred livestock death losses
in excess of normal mortality,
because of adverse weather, as
determined by the Secretary
during the calendar year,
including losses because of hur-
ricanes, floods, blizzards, dis-
ease, wildfires, extreme heat
and extreme cold.
The TAP program provides
assistance to orchardists and
eligible nursery tree growers
who produce nursery, ornamen-
tal, fruit, nut or Christmas trees

trees, bushes, or vines, because
of a natural disaster, as deter-
mined by the Secretary.
The ELAP program will
provide emergency relief to
producers of livestock, honey
bees and farm-raised fish,
because of losses from adverse
weather or other conditions,
such as blizzards and wildfires,
as determined by the Secretary.
Because Congress did not
provide a rulemaking exception
for these programs, FSA must
first publish a proposed rule
seeking public comment, fol-
lowed by a final rule. FSA is
working to develop detailed
regulations and software for
these, programs. Sign up for
these programs is not expected
to be held until this winter.
