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.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
