Therefore, you should begin looking for another dentist. Oftentimes, the recommendation of friends and relatives or contacting the local dental society, are ways to locate another dentist. With your permission, copies of the pertinent information from your records can be made available to the dentist of your choosing. Please do not hesitate to telephone us during normal business hours before June 28, 2013 if you have any questions. After the closing date, all inquires about the records or other matters should be directed to Dr. Henry F. Herlick, 9811 Big Pine St,, Atlanta, MI49709. It has been our pleasure to serve your dental needs and we thank you for your patronage. Sincerely, Dr. Henry F. Herlick by Y nm The council for the Village of Hftlman Staff reporter approved site plans for a food trailer to be located on property on State St. The motion to ap- prove included encouraging the owner of the trailer to hook up to the village sewer system within the next year. At the regular council meeting on May 21, discussion tookplace about whether a removable tankin a restroom building on the propertywould be sufficient. Myron Mclntire, council president, said there was nothing in the zoning to prohibit the trailer, but Wilbur Funk, trustee, said he didn't want to set a precedent for future businesses. "I think we should require him to at least hook up to the sewer," Funk said. Brenda South, village clerk, said the business was ex- pected to be seasonal and didn't pose'a hazard. "The guy spent money, and I think we need to encour- age him as much as we can," South said. McIntire estimated the owner of the biasiness had in- vested about $25,000 in the trailer in preparation for selling food. In other village business: After some discussion, the council otedin favor of the amendment to the solid waste management plan that includes gas recovery and waste to energy. Funk and Jim Stoddard voted in opposition after indicating they wanted more information. A motion passed in favor of paying up to $592 for the striping of paths within the village. The council members consented to learning more about and possibly bidding on a 1999 Intemational dump truck with 66,000 miles.

Report Terms - Results may be listed in ppm (parts per million) or pounds per acre. To convert from ppm to pounds multiply by 2, and to convert from pounds per acre to ppm divide by 2. Ratings - Most soil test readings on the report are given a rating of very low, low, medium, optimum, or very high. The rating bars are color coded to the rating scale across the top. The purpose of these rating is to provide a general guideline for determining the optimum nutrient levels. However, the actual value that is best depends on many factors such as crop, yield potential, and soft type. Soil Analysis Soil pH -The soil pH measures active soft acidity or alkalinity. A pH of 7.0 is neutral. Values lower than 7.0 are acid; values higher are alkaline. Usually the best pH range for mineral softs is 6.0 to 7.0 and for organic softs 5.0 to 5.5. The soil pH is the value that should be maintained in the pH range for the crop to be grown. Buffer pH- This is an index value used for determining the amount oflime to apply on acid soils to bring the pH to the desired pH for the crop to be grown. The lower the buffer pH reading the higher the lime requirement. Phosphorus- The phosphorus test measures that phos- phorus that should be available to the plant. The opti- mum level will vary with crop, yield and soil conditions, but for most field crops a medium to optimum rating is adequate. Potassium - This test measures available potassium. The optimum level will vary with crop, yield, soil type, soil physical condition, and other soil related factors. Generally higher levels of potassium are needed on softs high in clay and organic matter versus softs, which are sandy and low in organic matter.
