This is Farm Safety Week and how important in ours and surrounding rural communities! Harvest season is a reminder of the importance of farmers to our economy and our way of life. This hectic time also brings additional risks to agriculture workers. We want farmers to return home to their families at the end of each day. Each year since 1944, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety and Health Week. Thank you to all of our farmers, the many avenues this entails.
Deepest sympathy is extended to the families of Bonna June McKee, she lived long life out at the ‘Burg’. She will sure be missed by her family. Also sympathy extended to family of Carl Stauffer, he was from Nebo for most of his life.
“But farmers are patient men tried by brutal seasons, and if they weren’t plagued by dreams of generation, few would keep plowing Spring after Spring.” Richard Powers
“See it, taste it, smell it, and forget the time of day or year, Autumn needs no clock or calendar.” Hal Borland
