Do you have difficulty ex- pressing your feelings and opinions? Do you have self respect and do others have high respect for you? Do you feel you must please everybody and that everybody must love you? If you find yourself having these feelings, then Assertiveness Training is the answer for you. Assertiveness is striving for what you want and refusing what you do not want without infringing on the rights of others. held at Madisonville North Hopkins High School on US 41 north of Madisonville on Saturday, April 8 from 2 to 6 p.m. There is no admission to the show.

The show is open to the public. Private landowners would benefit most under the new Rural Abandoned Mine Reclamation (RAMR) program and not large and holders. This conclusion came to light recently during public hearings held at Hazard. Nearly 70 people from Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia were on hand to make comments on P.L. 95-87, the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. The hearings, conductedby the U.$. Soil Conservation Service (SCS), were limited to discussions pertaining only to portions of the act dealing with abandoned mining sites. Nationwide the SCS estimates this will involve over one million acres. Kentucky has some 101,000 acres which fall into this category. Dr. Richard Mason, Extension State Specialist in Family Life, will be coming from Frankfort Thursday, April 6, to conduct an Assertiveness Training Workshop at the Kentucky Utilities Auditorium in Hartford. Dr. Mason will be demonstrating prac- tical skills and leading discussion which will help you to become more assertive in obtaining the things you want in life. The workshop will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. All Glen E. Murray, SCS state con- servationist for Kentucky, said, "Overall, individuals who made written or oral comments were very receptive to the program and its long term objectives of improving water quality, returning some lands to a productive state and enhancing esthetics." "The program is designed to help the guy who can't afford to do needed reclamation on his own," Murray pointed out. "That is why there is a 320 acre limitation placed on RAMR cost share contract funds which would favor the small landwoner vs. the larger one." P.L. 95-87 provides for federal cost share assistance ranging from 80 to 100 percent depending on site con- ditions and off-site damages. Lan- persons attending are to bring a sack lunch; beverages will be provided. Assertiveness Training is being presented by the Cooperative Ex- tension Service and is open to the public.
