As the debate over what to do or not to do in Syria continues to dominate the national political debate, one question looms ever larger in the minds of those in the agriculture industry: Would Congress really let the farm bill expire? Increasingly, the answer appears to be yes, or at least a definite maybe. The existing one-year extension of the bill passed in 2008 expires Sept. 30. Without action by Congress to further extend it, the farm bill would expire and so-called "permanent law" would take effect, sending commodity prices into the stratosphere.
PLANKINTON -- A Plankinton man was found dead from a single-vehicle rollover when a sheriff's deputy happened upon the accident scene Friday morning. Erlin Juntunen, 42, was found dead at approximately 6:30 a.m. Friday one mile west of Plankinton on Old Highway 16, according to South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Nelson. He said the accident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. "He was driving eastbound when his vehicle drifted into the westbound lane," Nelson said. "He over-corrected and the vehicle ended up rolling and flipping two times, going in the north-side road ditch."

For members of Congress, the month of August is often paired with a second word -- travel. In a retail politics state like South Dakota, the recess means the three-member delegation roams the state talking face-to-face with voters. A Daily Republic analysis of travel spending shows the state's two senators spend more traveling within South Dakota than they do traveling back and forth from the Rushmore State to the Beltway. The state's lone representative, meanwhile, spends more traveling to and from Washington, D.C., than she spends on in-state travel.
