Farmer's Market to sell on Saturdays

The market is now open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the corner of Fourth and Main Street. The market is open to any area farmer. Participants must have a garden at their home and must register with Heart of Danville. Boyle County farmers may also set up behind Morley's Wheel Service off of Martin Luther King Blvd.

Deadline set for crop report

Paul E. Hall, director of the Lincoln County FSA Office, reminds all Lincoln County producers that July 15 is the final date to report crops grown in 2004. Farmers with a tobacco base with an effective quota greater than zero are required to file even if tobacco is not grown on the farm in 2004.

Those signed up in the Direct and Counter Cyclical Program (DCP) must submit a total farm crop report by July 15. Failure to file could result in a loss of benefits. These include tobacco price support, eligibility to participate in Loan Deficiency Payment Program (LDP) and marketing loans on stored grain.

Information about Wendy Rutherford in last Sunday's Boyle County District Court news was incorrect. Rutherford, who lives in Bright's Bend subdivision, pleaded guilty to an amended charge of reckless driving and paid a $100 fine. She did not spend time in jail. The mistake was due to a reporter's error.

The Advocate-Messenger corrects all significant errors that are brought to the editors' attention.

If you think we have made such an error, please call our newsroom at (859) 236-2551 or 1-800-428-0409 after 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
