The FSA Looks To Help Local Farmers Hit by Flood

The Franklin County Farm Service Agency is trying to help farmers affected by the recent flooding. The FSA County Committee is looking into the Emergency Conservation Program that can help repair damaged farmland. If money is received through the federal program, it could be used to remove debris from farmland, grading, shaping and filling gullies, and restoring fences destroyed by the disaster. Conservation issues that existed before the disaster are not eligible for cost-share assistance. The FSA county committee determines land eligibility based on on-site inspections of damage, taking into account the type and extent of damage. Producers can call the county USDA office at 636-583-2303 to report their damage by June 21, 2013.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
