  • U.S Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan Garcia announces that the processing and disbursement of 2013 crop commodity loans has resumed.

Sequestration is mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

  • Years ago, a pastor friend of mine did a series of seminary talks titled “Porcupines in the Storm.”
    He spoke about how we, meaning we Christians, are like porcupines — prickly and sometimes dangerous, especially to each other.
    Porcupines actually have soft hair, but on their backs, sides and tails the soft hair is mixed with sharp quills; Africa’s crested porcupines have quills nearly a foot long.
    As porcupines go about their day, their quills lie flat — until the animal feels threatened. Then the quills leap to attention.

The limit is adjusted annually based on the “Prices Paid to Farmers Index”, compiled by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS).
    “Raising the guaranteed loan limit will allow FSA to better meet the financial needs of producers across the Commonwealth,” said McCauley.

  • Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fowl swoop. We rake and pile and they jump. I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy:  adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. At the farm raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.
