I need my sugar fix first thing in the morning. If you give me a spoon full of cane sugar or beet sugar, makes no difference. It tastes and looks exactly the same. How can that be? One is a green stock and one is a brown beet. We are in sugar beet...

In a few seconds a huge semi-truck with a long trailer rumbled south on Chestnut through Kimball. Just long enough for me to look up and see the trailer loaded with hay. What a beautiful sight. All these bails of hay represented an incredible amount...
