HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JULY 11, 2014 3 SBDC UPC()MING EVENTS By ARLENE SOTOIfor the SBDC The best way to know what customers want is to ask them. Some of the things you hear might surprise you. The main question will be, are you willing to imple- ment the ideas your best custom- ers provide? Let's explore some of the feedback you may hear: 1. Provide better product selec- tion You'll need to ask if this means more variety, higher-qual- ity merchandise, or lower-priced products. Maybe the customers are partial to a particular brand they can't get anywhere else in town. Before making an invest- ment in additional inventory, make sure there's profit potential in implementing this suggestion.

We celebrated the Fourth of July here at the center by having cake and ice cream and everyone was talking about how excited they were and what they were going to do or where they were going for the @. There are lots of decorations around the building. We hope that you enjoyed your holiday as the participants did and the staff as the center was closed so everyone could enjoy! The next holiday for us is going to be the Hidalgo County Fair and it won't be too much longer until we start decorating for that. I know everyone enjoys the fair and goes to the fair- grounds and enjoys the food, ro- deo and exhibits. The Senior Citi- zens will also be putting in a booth. We have been having people stopping by to see us and our building. How about everyone else out there? Our participants enjoy great food and visiting, the exercise room; they enjoy putting the puzzles together (of which we just got a lot donated by Mr. and Mrs. Myers and Dee Burns-- Thank you so much!) The seniors enjoy playing dominoes and sometimes just sitting and read- ing or watching TV. We invite you to come see us and talk with us about our pro- grams. The most common ques- tion we get is "how old do you have to be to come and eat here?" The answer is 60 and over. I can- not tell you how many times we have heard, "Oh, I don't need to go there yet" or "I don't want a hand out!", Ok, people! This is NOT a hand out! We encourage all people 60 and older to come, get out and interact with other people so you can stay healthy-- both mentally and physically. You are asking "mentally"? YesI If you stay home without someone to talk to, there is a dan- ger of depression and stating de- mentia. I know this sounds dras- tic, but here at the center we have seen it happen time and time again. By visiting and doing things here, you are keeping mentally active. Nutritionally, you get a good, balanced meal every day. So, you see, coming here is a win, win situation! Also, where else can you get coffee, tea or milk, entr6e and dessert for a $2 donation? Sounds good to me! Got to go. Love to atl,Libby Weekly Inq)iration Continued from Page I For more information contact Fabiola Cano at 575-542-2356.

Bring your water and come USDA reminds of July 15 reporting deadline Continued from Page 1 Producers should contact their county FSA office if they are uncertain about acreage report- ing deadlines. Manzanares said that failed acreage must be re- ported before the disposition of the crop and that prevented acre- age must be reported within 15 calendar days after the final planting date for the applicable crop. For questions on this or any FSA program, including specific crop reporting deadlines and planting dates, producers should contact their county FSA office or seek information online at www.fsa.usda.gov. Today's announcement was made possible through the 2014 Farm Bill, which builds on his- toric economic gains in rural America over the past five years, while achieving meaningful re- form and billions of dollars in savings for the taxpayer. Since enactment, USDA has made sig- nificant progress to implement each provision of this critical leg- islation, including providing di- saster relief to farmers and ranch- ers; strengthening risk manage- ment tools; expanding access to rural credit; funding critical re- search; establishing innovative public-private conservation part- nerships; developing new mar- kets for rural-made products; and investing in infrastructure, hous- ing and community facilities to help improve quality of life in rural America.
