Thanks to programs provided by the Farm Bill, USDA has been able to enroll a record number of private lands in conservation practices. Over the past four years, we have worked with more than 500,000 producers, landowners and private foresters on projects that help the environment, while providing a new source of income. «Read the rest of this article»

Retail sales results for April were better than anticipated – not strong, but not as bad as feared. Industrial production was weaker than expected.

Clarksville, TN – True praise is a natural response from a heart that has been forgiven. Forgiveness is a necessary foundation for praise. It holds the key to our entire relationship with God.
No one knows our nature better than God who made us. He knows we are disobedient and that our disobedience separates us from Him. He longs for a restoration of our broken relationship, and since He knows He can’t depend on us to do anything right, He decided a long time ago to depend on Himself instead.
