Branstad was a speaker at the Iowa Soybean Association's Policy Conference.  Many farm organizations including the Iowa Farm Bureau and the Iowa Soybean Association are calling on Branstad and the state legislature to look at ways to increase funding for road repairs.  It has been suggested to Branstad to consider a ten cent per gallon increase on fuel tax.  But Branstad would rather see the savings come from administrative department cut backs.  The governor says if a tax increase is needed, he would like to see it implemented over several years.

(LeMars) -- The LeMars Chamber of Commerce has awarded yet another person as the "Employee of the Month."  This time around the honor goes to Carol Hinds.  Mark Bohner, Regional Manager for the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation submitted the entry.  He says Carol started working for the Plymouth County Farm Bureau 24 years ago.  She is the face and voice of the organization to most people.  Carol's smile and positive attitude helped keep this volunteer organization on track.  During her tenure at  Farm Bureau, Carol has handled all the daily duties and really "enjoyed" writing county page for the Farm Bureau Spokesman.  There is no one that cares for the members and their families more than Carol.  We wish Carol happiness and good health in her retirement.  It is hoped she will be a regular visitor at the county office.  Congratulations to Carol Hinds for being selected as the Chamber's Employee of the Month.
