PEMBERVILLE - Those attending the annual Eastwood FFA banquet were treated to a new format for this year's event.
While the Pemberville Legion catered this year's event, for the first time in many years, the banquet was not held at the Legion's banquet center. Those attending ate at the high school's lunch room before moving to the auditorium for the awards presentations.
Retired FFA adviser David Little and Nathan, Nolan and Nick Eckel were recognized with honorary chapter membership. Logan Browne was recognized as the top senior; Lane Kemner and Garrett Tuck were awarded Star Chapter honors, while Jolynn Nissen and Allison Abke were named the Star Greenhand recipients.
Little was the adviser of the Eastwood FFA Chapter from 1978 to 2013. Though his award was announced he was not in attendance and it was announced he will be honored with this award at the 2015 banquet.
The Eckel Family has been supporters of the Eastwood FFA chapter even before the three honorees graduated. Since 2000, the family has donated charcoal every year for the annual chicken barbecue. Each of the men received both their FFA State and American degree honors; Nathan, the eldest Eckel in 2000 and 2001; followed by Nolan in 2002 and in 2004; and the youngest, Nick, in 2007 and 2009.

REYNOLDSBURG - The Ohio Department of Agriculture has certified the results of the Ohio Corn Marketing Program Referendum. The referendum, seeking to increase the state checkoff on corn from ½ of a cent to ¾ of a cent per bushel, received enough favorable votes to pass.
A total of 964 votes were certified; 819 votes, or 85 percent of the total, were cast in favor of the referendum and 145 votes, or 15 percent, were opposed to the increase.  Producers were able to vote by absentee ballot, and also in person at the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association Office, and at OSU Extension offices.
The provisions of the Ohio Corn Marketing Program are defined in section 924 of the Ohio Revised Code. The ODA has the authority through section 924 to oversee state commodity checkoff programs, including administration of the referendum process, budgetary oversight, and authority to assist in establishing new commodity programs.
