Page 2 Cheney Free Press Thursday, August 26, 1982 Hunters' education is growing rapidly This week and next, more than 30 young hunters from Medical Lake and Cheney will participate in the Washington Game Department's Hunter Education Program. This process of certifying instructors and students in hunter safety proficiency began in this state in 1957, when a law was passed requiring young hunters to complete a course of firearms safety instruction before they can purchase their first hunting license. Today, hunter training programs have become one of the nation's major educational sstems with some 700gl]Y;new humers throughout the couny;aduating from huiuca- programs each year00+;0000co+r00ing to the Sports Foundation i!!i;ii , :+ Since 1949, when New York 5gan the first state wi ency sponsored program nearly million young h have completed hunter training :Ourses, ............. . :';i:,::;,,:: Today, state wildlife agonies i:a]i t:tates spon0: training programs that provide insction not only in fietms and hunting safety but also ir:: yariety of related t0cS uch as hunting ethics,' wildlife coeraiion and wildlife iti.&ationk! :: The basics of bowhunting, muzzleioading, outdoor survival an': : first aid are also included in many of the states' curriculums. In this state, instruction includes the mechanics of firearms and basic survival techniques as well as information on bowhunting, wildlife management and the "unwritten" rules of hunting sportsmanship. In addition, the manual used discusses some of the current attitudes of anti-hunting groups and discusses the importance of the educated hunter as conservation- ist and his role in correcting the public's misconception about hunlers. Minimum course requirements call for six hours of instruction, though many states now have considerably longer requirements; and most all offer extended courses, often lasting 40 or more hours. Students are taught by state agency trained volunteers, teachers and agency staff. There are today over 48,000 active hunter-education instructors throughout the nation. The training program offered is designed to benefit the inexperienced hunter regardless of age and is a valuable refresher course for anyone who enjoys hunting. Instructors, who volunteer their services, are usually members of the community ty in the young who have a keen interest in, lmnter through patient instruction.

Income level raised for lunches The maximum income a family can earn and still have their children qualify for free or reduced price school meals rose 10 percent July 1. Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Mary Jarratt said the change is a result of the annual cost-of-living adjustment made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help people keep up with inflation. Under the adjustment, the income limit for free meal eligibility, which is set by Congress at 130 percent of the federal poverty line, will go from $10,990 to $12,080 for a family of four. Eligibility for reduced price meals, set at 185 percent of poverty, will rise from $15,630 to $17,210. The federal poverty line is $9,300 for a family of four. USDA is required by law to update the income limits each July 1. The guidelines govern participation in the free or low cost meal programs under the national school lunch, school breakfast, child care food, special milk and eommodity school programs. Following are the annual income limits which will take effect for families of various sizes in the continental U.S. and the territories except Guam: Family Size ELIGIBILITY SCALE FOR FREE AND REDUCED PRICE MEALS Effective July 1, 1982 through June 30, 1983 Gross Income ....................
