Soap Opera Set in a Corn Field

May 28, 2011

In a recent issue of Farm Life magazine, I was tipped off on a soap opera that was formed out in a corn field. As the Corn Grows is a series set in fictional Sweet Swine County that aims to give a tongue-and-cheek look at rural life. The story follows big-city girl (Urban Katie) who leaves behind her city life to move to Southern Minnesota after inheriting a farm from her Aunt Ella.

Two members of the corny cast, Ed Powers and Steve Fisher, are AGCO employees at the sprayer application equipment division at the company’s Jackson, Minn., factory.
As the Corn Grows is a production of Our Story Productions, which was formed in 2007 and launched As the Corn Grows in 2008. The group has a goal of showing “small town living at its best” in each of its 60-minute programs that are aired online and on public-access TV in 34 counties across Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and South Dakota.

Machinery Dealership Damaged in Joplin

May 26, 2011

The sights of twisted steel, leveled buildings and broken lives in the aftermath of Sunday's tornado that hit Joplin, Mo. are numerous and jaw-dropping.

The New York Time has an interactive feature that overlays aerial photos taken in April 2008 and after Sunday’s tornado. You can find it by clicking here.

These images from the Fabick CAT dealership were shared with me in an e-mail. If you’ve been watching the coverage from the area, this dealership was located just east of the Home Depot.
