Jeff Library Author Talk
The Jeffersonville Township Public Library will offer a Zoom author talk, 11 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Jan. 23. James H. Madison, the Thomas and Kathryn Miller professor of history emeritus at Indiana University Bloomington, will discuss his latest book, “The Ku Klux Klan in the Heartland”.
Madison will offer new information about one of the most misunderstood and important organizations in Indiana’s history. He will explain the Klan’s popularity during the 1920s and the goals of the many native-born white Protestants who joined. He will focus also on those Hoosiers the Klan judged less than 100% American, including African-Americans and Jews, and the Klan’s primary enemies, Catholics and immigrants. He also spotlights those courageous Hoosiers who stood up to the Klan and eventually brought its downfall.
To register, go to jefflibrary.org, Events Calendar or call 812-285-8609. After registration, a Zoom link will be sent.
Conservation Reserve Program
Agricultural producers and private landowners interested in the Conservation Reserve Program can sign up for the program through Feb. 12, 2021. The competitive program, administered by USDA’s Farm Service Agency, provides annual rental payments for land devoted to conservation purposes.
This signup for the Conservation Reserve Program gives producers and landowners an opportunity to enroll for the first time or continue participation for another term. This program encourages conservation on sensitive lands or low-yielding acres, which provides tremendous benefits for stewardship of the natural resources and wildlife.
The Harrison-Floyd-Crawford County USDA Service Center is open for business, including limited in-person visits by appointment only. All visitors wishing to conduct business with the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, or any other Service Center agency should call the Service Center at 812-738-8121 for an appointment.
