2 Theories 2 The Voice President Obama seeks to transform nation s second highest court by Katherine Robertson This week, President Obama nominated three judges to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, often viewed as the second highest court in America. Confirmation of these nominees would mark a substantial shift in the ideology of this powerful court that would likely last for decades. Currently, there are 14 sitting D.C. Circuit Court judges, eight of which are active and six of which are on senior status. Of the eight active judges, four are Republican appointees and four are Democrat. If President Obama's nominees are seated, the Democrats would gain a 74 margin in active D.C. Circuit judges. The significance of the makeup of the D.C. Circuit bench cannot be overstated. This court is responsible for deciding crucial questions of administrative law ranging from the constitutionality of legislative vetoes of federal agency rules to the validity of agency regulations that carry sweeping national implications. In the past year alone, the court has halted the Administration's efforts in two crucial decisions which may have something to do with the apparent rush to restructure the court. In January, the court ruled that the President's "recess" appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) were unconstitutional because the Senate was in session, despite the President's declaration that the Senate was adjourned. The President's assertion relied upon a Department of Justice advisory opinion contending that the President has the right to determine whether or not the Senate is in recess. In other words, if it had not been for a correct ruling from the D.C. Circuit, the President's opinion -not the Constitution -- would have been the law of the land. By ruling against the President, the court invalidated his three appointments to the NLRB, at least temporarily stymying President Obama's aggressive agenda to implement pro-union labor law reforms. In August, 2012, the same court struck down the EPA's authority to implement the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. Alabama was one of 24 states who filed the suit against the EPA to stop the enforcement of the Rule intended to reduce coal pollution from power plants in some regions of the country through a cap-and-trade program. The court's decision relied heavily on federalism arguments and held that the EPA had violated the "federalism bar" contained in the Clean Air Act which the Supreme Court and the D.C. Circuit have consistently interpreted to mean that states have "the right to take the first crack at implementing required emissions reductions." Essentially, the court held that the EPA exceeded its authority in substance and in practice with the Rule. Aside from the fact that D.C. Circuit Court judges have the power to make a lasting impact on federal policy, of greater significance is the fact that judges appointed to the D.C. Circuit are often placed on the short list for a nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court when they are politically aligned with a sitting president. Four of the U.S. Supreme Court's sitting justices are over the age of 70 and with three-and- a-half years remaining in President Obama's term, there is great likelihood that he will have the chance to seat at least one more justice. If he succeeds in seating these three liberal judges to the D.C. Circuit, it is a near certainty that one of these judges will be the President's next nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. While it is a liberal president's prerogative to nominate liberal judges, it is not this President's prerogative to force through a stacked nomination of three judges to this esteemed court. Senate Judiciary Republicans have indicated that they intend to carefully scrutinize any attempt to stack the D.C. Circuit in this manner and for good reason. As The Wall Street Journal points out, "[t]he court doesn't need the judges. The D.C. Circuit is among the most underworked court in the federal system." While the court may be underworked, it is unquestionable that the work the D.C. Court is doing has long-term national significance, particularly in defining the limits of power for federal agencies. President Obama himself said that "the (D.C. Circuit) court's decisions impact almost every aspect of our lives." If this is to be believed, then Senate Republicans should ready themselves for battle. Katherine Robertson serves as senior policy counsel for the Alabama Policy Institute (API). API is an independent, non-profit research and education organization dedicated to the preservation of free markets, limited government and strong families. If you would like to speak with the author, please call (205) or her at USDA Announces Farm Payments Scheduled to Resume WASHINGTON, May 8, 2013 The U.S. Department of Agriculture s Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced today that farm payments, which had been temporarily suspended due to sequestration, are scheduled to resume today, May 8. This includes payments for the 2011 Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE), the Noninsured Crop Assistance Program (NAP) and the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC). I m pleased to announce that farmers and ranchers can expect to begin receiving their payments beginning today, May 8, said Garcia. We appreciate the producers patience during the delay. We re working diligently to get these payments out as quickly as possible. On March 4, 2013, FSA began a temporary suspension of FSA program payments in order to assess the impact of sequestration and determine the least-disruptive process possible for carrying out required cuts. The Department will use the Secretary s limited authority to transfer funds to avoid reducing these program payments. Producers should be advised that program sign-up periods currently underway have the following enrollment deadlines: 2013 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program June 3rd; 2011 SURE June 7; and the 2013 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program August 2nd. Producers should contact their local Farm Service Agency office as soon as possible for appointments to enroll in these programs before the deadlines. USDA has made a concerted effort to deliver results for the American people, even as USDA implements sequestration the across-the-board budget reductions mandated under terms of the Budget Control Act. USDA has already undertaken historic efforts since 2009 to save more than $828 million in taxpayer funds through targeted, common-sense budget reductions. These reductions have put USDA in a better position to carry out its mission, while implementing sequester budget reductions in a fair manner that causes as little disruption as possible.

Help Elderly Loved Ones Avoid Financial Abuse It s unfortunate, but true: The elderly population may be the most vulnerable group in our society. In fact, in an effort to call attention to the problems of physical, emotional and financial abuse of the elderly, the United Nations has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. If you have older parents, or even grandparents, can you do to anything to help prevent them from being victimized, especially with regard to their finances? Actually, there s a lot you can do. First and foremost, you need to maintain good communications and a trusting relationship with your older family members. As long as these elements are present, you should feel free to make the following suggestions: Increase awareness When it comes to financial fraud and scams, many seniors think: It can t happen to me. But the facts suggest otherwise: Some 20 percent of Americans over the age of 65 admit to having been victimized by financial swindles, according to a survey by the non-profit Investor Protection Trust. Let your loved ones know that no one in their age group is immune to financial predators. Guard private information Ask your parents or grandparents to not divulge personal information over the phone. In fact, urge them to get caller ID, if they don t have it already, and tell them that if they don t recognize the number, don t answer. Legitimate callers are more likely to leave messages than scammers. Don t send money. Exhort your parents or grandparents to never wire money to a random account no exceptions. Ignore limited-time offers Your loved ones should ignore callers, mailers or s that demand they act immediately. These offers are often overblown at best and may be fraudulent at worst. Don t trust no risk offers Financial offers that sound too good to be true are likely just that untrue. Legitimate investments carry both potential risks and rewards. Avoid debt-settlement claims If your older loved ones have debt problems, they may be especially susceptible to offers that claim to clear up all their debts. But there s no quick fix to this problem and any caller who claims otherwise is likely being deceitful. Encourage your parents or grandparents to discuss their debt situation with an honest, professional debt counselor or a financial advisor. Here s one more thing you can do to help your parents or grandparents avoid financial fraud: If they don t already work with a trusted, qualified financial professional, introduce them to one. If your parents have a relationship with such a professional, they will be less likely to listen to any questionable, unsolicited offers than if they were trying to manage their finances on their own. You re in a good position to know how much, or how little, help your elderly loved ones may need in terms of avoiding financial abuse. So be willing to do whatever it takes to help them enjoy their retirement years comfortably.

3 Community & Religion 3 The Voice Alabama Department of Agriculture Crop, Progress report General: The week s average mean temperatures ranged from 60.3 F in Crossville and Opelika, to 66.7 F in Mobile; total precipitation ranged from 0.00 inches in Enterprise and Opelika, to 2.07 inches in Crossville. Shane Seay, FSA CED, reported large amounts of rainfall in Limestone County caused fieldwork to crawl to a complete stop. David Derrick, ACES REA, said it was still too wet to plant throughout Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, Cullman, DeKalb, Etowah, Jackson, Marshall and St. Clair Counties. Henry Dorough, ACES REA, reported cool and wet weather hindered many farm activities this week throughout Blount, Calhoun, Jefferson, Marshall and St. Clair Counties. Gregory Key, FSA CED, confirmed fields were extremely wet after some areas within Etowah and St. Clair County received up to 8 inches of rain. Carol Gay, FSA CED, stated Clay and Randolph County received nearly.4 and 1 inch of rainfall this past week, respectively. Warren Griffith, ACES CEC, stated wet and cool conditions still persist in Fayette County. Marie Headley, FSA CED, confirmed temperatures have been unseasonably cool,but warmer weather was on the way in Bibb and Perry County. Corn/Cotton/Peanut/Soybeans: Seay said fertilizer has been depleted due to excess water, and cool temperatures caused plantings to be slow about emerging. Tim Malone, FSA CED, stated producers in Marion and Winston County needed to plant corn and cotton this week to meet crop insurance deadline on May 15 and May 20, respectively. Donald Mann, FSA CED, reported more rain on Friday and Saturday further delayed corn, cotton and soybean plantings in Jackson County. Mann stated there will be thousands of acres of prevented planting certified for corn and cotton as wet field conditions were preventing most farmers to meet the crop insurance deadline. Additionally, Mann said many producers were already returning and expecting to replace corn seed with soybean. The wheat crop was in dire need of some drier weather, added Mann.According to Key, May 15 is the crop insurance deadline for corn, and producers are considering filing prevented planting and leaving the land idle for this year. Jeffrey Smith, FSA CED, confirmed many producers in Coosa, Elmore and Tallapoosa Counties were waiting for warmer weather to plant cotton, soybeans and peanuts. Smith noted earlier planted cotton was struggling to get out of the ground due to cool weather. Headley said corn that was planted was in good condition; however, some producers were not able to get their corn planted due to extremely wet conditions. Willie Durr, ACES CEC, confirmed plantings of peanuts and cotton was in full swing in Houston County. Pasture/Hay/Livestock: Dorough said some producers managed to cut hay and hoped to bale prior to the next rains. The extended cool and moist conditions benefited cool season forages but were hindering warm season grasses from gaining ground, stated Dorough. Joe Capps, FSA CED, said hay was still being fed to cattle in Macon and Russell County. Brenda Glover, ACES REA, reported areas throughout Greene, Hale, Marengo, Perry and Sumter Counties needed warmer temperatures for grass to grow for hay and pastures. James Jones, Jr., ACES CEC, said Henry County needed some moisture for plantings to continue this week. Cattle were in good to excellent condition due to timely rainfall, stated Durr. Pastures were generally in good condition with hay producers awaiting dry weather for their first hay cutting, said Smith.

4 Sports & Education 4 The Voice Coping with hot work environments Provided by James D. Jones Jr., County Extension Coordinator Many people work under hot, humid conditions. Summer heat is a particular hazard to agricultural producers who work long hours under the sun. However, other people working in hot yards, gardens, kitchens or industry jobs are also exposed to these conditions. A hot work environment can impair safety and health. Both workers and their employers are responsible for taking steps to prevent heat stress in the workplace. How Your Body Handles Heat Humans are warm-blooded, which means they maintain a fairly constant internal body temperature regardless of external conditions. Under moderate conditions, the brain automatically balances body heat by monitoring the warmth of the blood. However, when blood temperature exceeds 98.6 degrees F, the brain automatically takes measures to lower it. The heart pumps more blood; blood vessels expand to accommodate the increased flow; and blood begins to flow through bundles of microscopic blood vessels (capillaries) in the skin. As the blood circulates closer to the surface of the skin, excess heat is transferred to the cooler atmosphere. When the air temperature is as warm as or warmer than the skin, blood brought to the body surface cannot shed its heat to cool the body. At that point, the brain signals the sweat glands to shed fluid in the form of perspiration, which in turn cools the body as it evaporates from the skin. In humid conditions, cooling the body by sweating is more difficult because high humidity slows evaporation. Wiping sweat from the skin with a cloth also prevents cooling from evaporation. In hot, humid conditions, hard work becomes harder. The sweat glands release moisture and essential chemical compounds such as salt onto the skin. Circulatory vessels enlarge, and the heart pumps quickly to cool the blood by forcing it close to the surface. That means less blood goes to the muscles. As a result, strength declines and physical and mental fatigue sets in. Health Problems Excessive exposure to a hot environment can bring about several physical disorders, including heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, fainting, heat rash and momentary or transient heat fatigue. Heat stroke is the most serious heatrelated disorder and occurs when the heat-regulating system breaks down under stress and sweating stops. This condition can occur with little warning and robs the body of its most effective means of shedding excess heat. A heat stroke victim s skin is hot, dry and usually red or spotted, and the body temperature is 105 degrees F or higher. The person is con- fused and irritable and may complain of chills. If the victim is not cooled soon, unconsciousness, delirium and convulsions will occur and can lead to death. When heat stroke is suspected, summon an ambulance immediately. Move the worker to a cool area and thoroughly soak his or her clothes with water. Fan the body vigorously to increase evaporation and cooling, and monitor the worker s condition until medical professionals arrive. Recognizing and treating heat stroke is the only way to prevent permanent brain damage or death. Workers who are physically fit and acclimated can tolerate heat best, but no one is immune to heat stroke. Chronic disease, obesity, alcoholism and a history of heat illness are all risk factors for heat stroke. Heat exhaustion is caused by loss of fluid in sweating, loss of salt, or both. A worker with heat exhaustion still sweats, but experiences extreme weakness, fatigue, giddiness, nausea or headache. In serious cases, the victim may vomit or lose consciousness. The skin is clammy and moist, the complexion is pale or flushed, and the body temperature is normal or slightly higher. Workers who are obese or unaccustomed to the heat are prone to heat exhaustion. In most cases, treatment is simple: Have the victim rest in a cool place and provide plenty of lightly salted liquids. This treatment will resolve most cases of heat exhaustion, though severe cases may require care for several days. There are no known permanent effects. Caution: people with heart problems or lowsodium diets should consult a physician in these cases. Heat cramps are painful muscle spasms caused by losing salt in perspiration. Workers who drink much water but do not replace salt are prone to heat cramps because drinking water dilutes the body s fluids, without replacing salt. Soon, the low salt in the muscles will cause painful cramps in the arms, legs or abdomen. Cramps can occur during or after work hours and may be relieved by drinking one glass of water containing 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Caution: people with heart problems or on low-sodium diets should consult a physician about this condition. Fainting. A worker who stands still in the heat may simply black out. Under these conditions, blood pools in the enlarged blood vessels near the skin and in the lower part of the body rather than returning to the heart to be pumped to the brain. Once lying down, the worker should soon recover as circulation to the brain improves. To avoid further fainting, have the worker move around to maintain good circulation. Heat rash, or prickly heat, occurs in humid environments where sweat does not evaporate easily. Perspiration may plug sweat ducts and cause inflammation that becomes a rash. Discomfort from severe or infected prickly heat can reduce a worker s performance. Resting in a cool place at regular intervals and taking periodic showers will help workers avoid this condition. Momentary or transient heat fatigue is marked by discomfort and mental strain because of prolonged exposure to heat. Workers can lose coordination and alertness and/or become irritable and depressed. Unacclimated workers are particularly susceptible; gradual adjustment to the hot environment will help such workers cope with heat fatigue. Special Considerations during Prolonged Heat Heat illnesses usually increase when hot weather lasts more than 3 days. Workers are placed at higher risk after progressive loss of body fluid and salt, loss of appetite and build-up of heat in work and living areas. Protect yourself and your workers by avoiding highly stressful activities during extended hot spells or performing them during the early morning or at night. During peak seasons, hire additional temporary help rather than scheduling lengthy work periods or overtime shifts. Finally, remember the basics: Get enough sleep and good nutrition to maintain heat tolerance. Avoid alcoholic beverages, as they cause additional dehydration. Consult your physician if you take special medication. Avoid significant weight loss from fluid loss. REMEMBER, C.H.A.R.M. CAN T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

5 Community 5 The Voice Alabama s Newest Billion-Dollar Industry: Row Crops When Max Runge sat down recently with his colleague, Dr. Tim Reed, to crunch some numbers for a grant proposal, he had no idea this would lead to such a surprising discovery. In the course of researching the value of Alabama row crops, Runge, an Alabama Extension economist, discovered that for the first time in history the state s principal crops wheat, corn, cotton, soybeans and peanuts collectively represent a billion-dollar industry. In fact, the combined value of these crops has increased almost 23 percent between 2011 and What accounts for these greatly improved fortunes? For starters, land use. Only the best land is now devoted to raising crops, with most of the marginal land having been removed within the last few decades. But Runge also attributes these strides to all the benefits farmers are reaping from the slow but steady advances in farming technology, some old, others comparatively new, which have occurred within the last few decades. We re benefiting from better crop genetics and better technology, such as precision agriculture and with all of these improvements, we re also seeing greater attention to detail, he says. Case in point: the near pinpoint accuracy of fertilizer, pesticide and herbicide applications made possible by precision farming. In addition to contributing to increased yields, this technology has also secured producers substantial savings in operating costs, Runge says. Add to that the steady adoption of irrigation. We re seeing more irrigation adoption in the state, which is enhancing crop yields, he says. The timely application of moisture certainly makes a different, especially with corn, which suffered terrible losses during the prolonged 2011 drought. But steady advances in older, less conspicuous technologies have aided farmers too no-till farming, crop scouting and soil testing, to name a few. All of these improvements, he says, underscore the enduring value of landgrant universities, particularly the role research and Extension continue to serve. It really is a reflection of what s been done over many years, not only in terms of research but also in how the practical value of this research has been extended so that producers can make use of it, he says. Runge s boss, Alabama Extension Director Gary Lemme, couldn t agree more. He cites ramped-up corn production as an example of how landgrant university research and Extension efforts have worked in tandem to drive these technological advances. Corn yields remained relatively flat at approximately 30 bushels an acre between 1860 and The adoption of hybrid corn, developed by land-grant universities, changed that. With the advent of this new corn, which was introduced to farmers through Extension programs and 4-H clubs, yields have increased almost 2 bushels an acre each year, he says. Like Runge, Lemme, an agronomist by training, also credits other technological advances that have occurred over a broad front soil nutrition, pest management, soil tillage, seed genetics and precise variable application rate equipment, which, in addition to lowering input costs, have contributed to greatly enhanced yields. Reed, an Extension entomologist, cites cotton-insect control as an especially notable example of how technological advances undertaken decades ago have worked together to improve yields. If you look back to those 6 or 7 years before boll weevil eradication got under way in Alabama, producers were spending about the same amount of money per acre to control insects as they are today, says Dr. Tim Reed, an Alabama Extension entomologist. But the big difference today is that yield losses associated with pest damage are significantly less only about 2 percent an acre. Cultural practices and a few chemical control methods developed over the last few decades also have reduced damage to wheat caused from the Hessian fly. Dr. Austin Hagan, an Extension plant pathologist and Auburn University professor of plant pathology, points to the similar strides in disease management within another principal crop: peanuts. Much of it stems from the superior varieties we ve developed within the last generation, Hagan says. Tomato-spotted wilt has disappeared as a factor in peanut production, even though it was considered a real issue ten years ago. Also, the varieties we have in the market now are more resistant to some diseases tomatospotted wilt and white mold and, in the case of another major peanut disease, leaf spot disease, at least less susceptible to yield loss. As with all facets of production agriculture, challenges remain. Hagan points to the persistent cotton yield losses associated with root-knot and reniform nematodes. We haven t solved all the problems yet, he says. We can t deal with that problem effectively with the technologies we currently have in hand. Three of Alabama s principal row crops peanuts, soybeans and corn posted significant increases in value in Peanuts underwent the biggest increase from almost $144 million in 2011 to about $295-million in Cotton incurred the biggest loss, dropping from $303 million in 2011 to about $242-million in The value of wheat also declined from $98 million in 2011 to about $75 million in SARCOA SenioRx can help qualifying individuals disabled individuals in the 24-month Medicare waiting period.
