Scholarship Deadline Approaching

The deadline is quickly approaching for Tulare County students interested in more than $15,000 in college scholarships from the Tulare County Farm Bureau.

The Tulare County Farm Bureau Education and Scholarship fund annually awards scholarships in a variety of categories.  Some are directed to qualified applicants according to the wishes of those who provided the funds; others go to those seeking careers in agriculture; one is given to a student whose parent is a farm employee and others are simply based on merit.

Students will be publicly recognized for their achievements at Tulare County Farm Bureau’s annual meeting on May 8, 2014 in Tulare.

To apply, students must complete and return application; submit two letters of recommendation; submit school transcripts and attend school currently or have graduated from a school in Tulare County to be eligible. 

Local Emergency Declared Over Drought

The Tulare County Board of Supervisors have unanimously proclaimed a local emergency due to the statewide drought, called for state legislators to place a water bond on a future ballot, and formed an ad hoc committee to address future water advocacy strategy.

Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Phil Cox said the proclamation of local emergency enables Tulare County to recover any future drought response costs and also makes the County eligible for any other drought-related assistance in the future.

"This is a very serious issue that can potentially destroy our local economy," Chairman Cox said.

CSET Offering Free Tax Assistance

Community Services Employment Training (CSET) is offering free tax preparation services to Kings and Tulare County families with a household income less than $50,000.  The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will operate through April 12.

More than 100 volunteers took a month-long course to become IRS certified tax preparers.  The volunteers are trained to file taxes for the families and help them identify tax credits for which they are eligible.  Common tax credits include the Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credits, Child & Dependent Care Credit, Retirement Savings Contribution Credit, and Education Credits.

The VITA program is available at multiple locations in Tulare County.  Residents can visit an office in Orosi, Porterville, Tulare (in February only) and Visalia for assistance. The sites are open from 9am-3pm on Saturdays.
