  • Farm Bureau celebrates Food Check-Out Week

     The cost of food in America remains affordable. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, American consumers spend, on average, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: It is possible to know God

     To know God is possible, and such knowledge is found through personal devotional life and spiritual practice.

    We learn from scripture that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

    So how do we obtain faith? Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).

    In order to have the faith God is speaking about would be spending time in his word.

  • COLUMN: Organize paperwork before a crisis occurs

     An estate plan is a plan for the disposition of resources and property after death or during crisis. A will is one component of an estate plan. Although necessary to direct the distribution of assets after death, almost 70 percent of U.S. adults do not have wills. Dying without a will is called dying “intestate” and means that state and federal regulations will determine the distribution of assets. A carefully written legal will, however, provides for family and others in a manner consistent with a person's desires.
