WASHINGTON - USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced Friday the processing and disbursement of 2013 crop commodity loans has resumed. Crop year 2013 commodity loan-making was suspended Oct. 1 to make changes necessary to accommodate the automatic funding reductions known as sequester.
"We must comply with the laws established by Congress to reduce funds in accordance with sequestration policy," said Garcia.
"We regret the delay this has created in USDA issuing marketing assistance loans because we know how critical the loans are to many farmers' cash flow at this time of year," he added."

WASHINGTON - Northwest Ohio is a significant contributor to Ohio's distinction as one of the larger popcorn producing states in the country. Recent decisions by the Risk Management Agency (RMA) of the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) has put a crimp in the growers' ability to insure their popcorn.
While popcorn is not one of the major Wood County crops it is still important to those who grow the snack corn.
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) recently sent a letter to the RMA administrator, Brandon Willis, expressing his concerns with a recently finalized rule that folds current crop group risk insurance plans into a new single Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) plan.
"I want to ensure that policies, such as the ARPI rule, do not place farmers at a disadvantage that hurts their ability to manage risk for popcorn production, as well as jeopardize future supplies of popcorn that could increase prices for consumers," the letter reads.

Saddles N' Surreys
Saddles N' Surreys is a 4-H Club that mostly shows horses at the Wood County Fair.
The club had its first official meeting Thursday. Members decided as of this year to make individual committees for different topics, for instance; barn and both, social, community service, programming (guest speakers), etc. to help the club run more smoothly and accomplish more.
The club also decided to do something for the community, as those attending discussed several ideas for community service projects. Members are considering church food donations, the Stranahan Theatre project called Noel, where they can help hand out presents to the needy at Christmas time, Project Hope which is an organization that uses therapy for children through horses, and the Wood County Humane society needs cleaning supplies and their dogs walked. The club will choose several of these projects throughout the year.
