This week more than 760,000 FFA members across the country will share the story of agriculture as part of National FFAWeek.  Today, FFA provides the next generation of leaders who will change the world. As the top school-based youth leadership development organization in the na- tion, FFA helps young people meet new agricultural challenges by helping members develop their unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways. FFA members are our future leaders, our future food-suppliers, our future innovators and so much more!  Whether it is through service projects or commu- nity gatherings, National FFAWeek is a time for FFA members to raise awareness about the role the Na- tional FFA Organization plays in developing agricul- ture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education.  National FFAWeek always runs Saturday to Satur- day and encompasses Feb. 22, George Washington’s birthday. This year, the week kicked off on Feb. 20 and culminates on Saturday, Feb. 27.  The National FFA Board of Directors designated the weeklong tradition, which began in 1948, in recognition of Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. A group of young farmers founded FFA in 1928, and the organization has been influencing generations that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting - it involves science, business and more.  National FFAWeek is a time for FFA members to share agriculture with their fellow students as well as their communities. Chapters also give back to their communities through service projects during FFA Week.  National FFAWeek is also a time for alumni and supporters to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. Alumni and Supporters will celebrate Alumni Day on Tuesday, Feb. 22, and on Thursday, Feb. 25, the National FFA Foundation will celebrate Give FFA Day, a 24-hour campaign encouraging the public to support various needs impacting FFA members. If interested in giving, one can visit Day. Friday, Feb. 26, all FFA members and support- ers are encouraged to wear blue and show their FFA pride!  The National FFAOrganization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members as part of 8,700 lo- cal FFA chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. National FFAWeek Tuesday afternoon grass fire by Wayne Watts, CTCN publisher  Thirty or more fire fighting units rolled on a wildfire Tuesday afternoon when gusty winds, dry grass, dead tim- ber and soft ground teamed up to fight the firefighters.  A grass fire, evidently sparked along the 81 Highway Bypass, just south of Osage Road north of Duncan roared to life, jumped Osage just on the west of the bypass and threatened houses and other structures.  Duncan, Marlow, Empire and Cen- tral High units answered the call to stop the fire. With soft ground due to the re- cent record breaking snow, many units could not navigate with their heavy loads of water and sank to their frames unable to get to the flames.  The fire was stopped just on the south side of the Whippoorwill Acres addition located on the south side of Gatlin Road and the west side of 29th Street.  Homeowners were helping slow the flames with garden hoses and buckets trying to douse the flames.  One Duncan firefighter said that it looked like the fire started in multiple places and could have been started with a trailer safety chain sparking on the pavement or someother source of heat in the dry grass.  “We’ve had it out three times, and with the wind it just flares back up,” said one firefighter on the scene. A firefighter stands guard as others work to get water to battle the flames in Tuesdays grass fire. (CTCN photo by Wayne Watts)  This is the season that wildfires and grass fires can easily be started. The grass and other vegetation is dead and dry. There is a lot of tree limbs on the ground from the ice storm late last year and then sea- sonal winds help fan the flames. Citizens are urged to take fire prevention actions, to lessen the opportunity to be caught in the flames. Cash Offer For Land And Houses in Stephens County, Bill Speegle, Broker. 255- 9060 (08C)
