  • Farmers Donate Livestock  For Fairbury School Lunches
    Friday, September 22, 2017 2:35 PM
    Wednesday evening, local farmers met with school officials at the Elks Lodge to discuss Faribury's “Farm to School” 2017-18 Initiative. Fairbury Superintendent Stephen Grizzle led the meeting to address the development of a partnership between local producers and the schools.
    The idea is to provide local cattle, hogs, and produce for student lunches. By having locally grown products in their lunches, Grizzle says it will bring awareness to the students of what is produced locally.

    I was hired by The Fairbury Journal-News at the beginning of 2016. That means I’ve been writing for the paper for over a year and a half. During this time I’ve seen all sorts of stories. I’ve read about elections and fires and floods and business openings and closings and all manner of sporting games. I’ve even covered a few. I’ve reported on court cases and county board meetings and, as always, the Bonham Theatre, inching ever closer to reopening. Yet, in all this time, I’ve yet to see that most quintessential of small-town stories: big vegetables.

    The plan of redemption provides for the entire man, soul and body, but that while our souls are now delivered from the power of all sin—restored to the “image of God”—our bodies will not be immortalized until the end of time, when this “for the perishable must itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality” (I Corinthians 15:53).
