Food handler program to be held in Hebron
Food safety is in the news and on the minds of many people. Numerous foodborne illnesses have occurred in Nebraska during the last year ­­ including E.coli, Salmonella, Norovirus, and Hepatitis A, Most of the reported foodborne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from the home. ServSafe Food Handler Program was developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers for the food service staff that serve them.
The University of Nebraska-Extension will be offering the  ServSafe Food Handler Program. Class instructor is Amy Peterson MS, RD, from UNL Extension in Polk County. Class will be on Sept.1, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. There is a cost per participant, which includes the ServSafe Food Handler course book and additional classroom materials. This training will be held at Blue Valley Nursing Home in Hebron.
The program provides the resources to help keep food safety as an essential ingredient in every meal by providing basic food safety information to help prevent food borne illness. This is a great opportunity to have your staff trained in current food safety practices and ideal for school foodservice, health care, restaurant, or other types of food service that prepare food for others. Participants will receive a certificate of completion after successfully passing certification.  Continuing education credit is available for dietitians, diet technicians, and dietary managers.
Registration is due by tomorrow (Friday). For more information, contact Amy Peterson by email at apeterson3@unl.edu.

New agreement extends CREP program
A new Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the State of the Nebraska and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) allows for re-enrollment of land currently under the CREP for another 10 to 15 years, and continues to allow for new CREP contracts to be filed. The Nebraska Platte-Republican CREP is available in the Republican River Basin and the North Platte, South Platte and Platte River basins.
Producers currently in CREP who have a contract that expires Sept. 30 must enter into a Re-Enrolled Water Use Contract with the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources stating they will not use the water associated with irrigation of the lands under the contract. The producers must also enter into a CRP contract with the FSA. Both contracts must be in place by Sept. 30 in order to have a continuance of existing CREP contracts.
For current CREP contractors whose contracts expire Sept. 30 and whose land is located in the Platte River Basin and both natural flow and storage use surface water rights are associated with the land under the original contract, there are current legal restrictions or considerations such that re-enrollment is not possible. These legal considerations do not exist in the Republican River Basin at this time, and do not affect contracts in the Platte or Republican basins where only groundwater was the source of water for irrigation.
Producers who are interested in obtaining new CREP contracts should contact their local FSA office. The CREP program, which has been in existence for 11 years, is part of CRP, operated on behalf of CCC by the USDA's FSA. The purpose of the Nebraska Platte-Republican CREP is to improve water quantity and quality, and the enhancement of wildlife habitat through establishment of vegetative cover to reduce irrigation water consumptive use and agricultural chemical and sediment runoff into waters of Nebraska.
