Firefighter Pete Bushby was named Career Firefighter of the Year, and Faye McAfee was honored with a 15-year Serve Award. Gade Miller was presented with the Tom Neilson Memorial Explorer of the Year Award and Wesley David was named Volunteer Rookie of the Year. The Volunteer Firefighter of the Year was Ron Roysum and Tanya Schillinski (representing the Ukiah Police Department) won the "Josh" Award, for the "Ambulance drivers early work- release program," a humorous award given within the department. The most prestigious award of the night, the Henry P. Dohring Award went to Battalion Chief and Fire Marshal Bruce Evans, who was described by Fire Chief Roe Sandelin as "an amazing man who... cares very much about his community, about this fire department and its people." This is the second time Evans has been honored with this award. The first time was in 1988. "Bruce Evans is the kind of man who gives his best, always," Sandelin said. "Total organization is his trademark." Evans is a recognized expert witness in fire cause and origin investigations and some of his photographs are used in a leading technical manual on fire investigation. The Dohring Award is given in memory of a Northwestern Pacific Railroad employee and firefighter who played an important role in protecting local property during the Great Fire of 1917 in Ukiah and who later convinced the city to buy its first 1923 American La France pumper. Dohring died in Ukiah in 1976 at age 85.

"It \ ;is also an opportunity for partic- ' -ipants with contracts expiring '< 'this fall to make new contract ; offers." •; .USDA will continue to evaluate and rank eligible CRP offers 'using an Environmental Benefits Index (EBi), which is based on the potential environmental 'benefits gained from enrolling 'the land in CRP. Decisions on •the EBI cut-off will be made •after sign-up 20 ends. The EBI „ cutoff used in previous sign-ups •may not be used for this one. ;TTie cutoff is decided after analyzing the EBI numbers of all Cthe offers. Those who would have met previous sign-up EBI .thresholds are not guaranteed a •contract under sign-up 20. '•'.' -"CRP is a highly successful ;and competitive program," said •Glickman. "I encourage all ;landowners to find out about the EBI before the Feb. 11, deadline, and to consult with local USDA experts on steps they can take to maximize EBI points and increase the likelihood that their bid will be accepted." The Farm Service Agency is authorized to maintain CRP enrollment up to 36.4 million acres. Approximately 31.5 million acres were enrolled in CRP contracts as of Oct. 1, 1999. About 400,000 acres were enrolled in CRP contracts that will expire on Sept. 30. The contracts awarded under sign-up 20 will become effective on Oct. 1. "Producers can avoid the highly competitive EBI under the general sign-up by enrolling the most environmentally sensitive land under CRP's continuous sign-up program," Glickman said. Under the continuous sign-up, relatively small amounts of land serving to protect much larger areas, such as filter strips, riparian buffers, and grass waterways, enrolled any time. may be The CRP is designed to improve the Nation's natural resource base. Participants voluntarily enter into contracts with USDA to enroll erodible and other environmentally sensitive land in long-term contracts for 10 to 15 years. In exchange, participants receive annual rental payments and a payment of up to 50 percent of the cost of establishing conservation practices. The program protects millions of acres of American topsoil from erosion. By reducing water runoff and sedimentation, it also protects ground water and helps improve the condition of lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams. Acreage enrolled in the CRP is planted to resource-conserving (vegetative) covers, greatly increasing wildlife populations in many parts of the country.
