Woman Kind Fundraiser a success As a result of a fund raising appeal to residents of Washington County, Woman- Kind has raised over $1,200 in the past three months. According to Jan Karlen, Director, "local response has been tremendous. We are excited by the support shown for our program because it reflects a local commitment to reduce the amount of family violence in Washington County. We want to extend a sincere thank you to all those who contributed• The money will be used to increase the level of services that WomanKind pro- vides to victims of domestic abuse, with an emphasis on crisis counseling and Spruce Budworm Supression Program Approximately 950,000 acres of spruce budworm infested forest are designated for treatment with insecticide in 1984, according to Kenneth Stratton, Director of the Department of Cgnservation's Maine Forest Service. This information was presented at a public meeting in Bangor where State officials described plans for the 1984 Spruce Budworm Suppression Project scheduled to begin around mid-May. "The suppression project," said Strat- ton, "is an essential part of a total effort to minimize a future shortfall of spruce and fir. Fortunately, recent studies have predicted the shortfall, and give us time to correct the problem before it occurs". "A tax on the landowners participat- ing will be the only source of funding for the 1984 project, since we have been notified that there will be no federal financial assistance available this year," Stratton said. According to Henry Trial, MFS Co- ordinator of Spruce Budworm Survey and Assessment, "Surveys have shown that spruce budworm population levels have unexpectedly declined from last year's extreme levels throughout the State. However, populations are still high enough to damage or kill trees mak- ing treatment essential in many areas." The entromologist said that the decline is unexplained but not unusual, Results of the 1984 Spruce Budworm Air Monitoring Program and a study of Reye's Syndrome incidence were present- ed by Dr. Terry Shehata of the Depart- ment of Human Services, Bureau of Health. Dr. Shehata said air samples show- ed that Matacil spray drift was minimal, a significant health hazard to the general population was not evident, and that the ? mile buffer zone used by the MFS is adequate for Matacil at the 1 ounce per acre application rate.
