Indiana's economy re- mains reliant on the agricul- ture industry to supply jobs and make significant contri- butions to the state's econ- omy, despite a challenging year for the industry. According to the United States Department of Ag- riculture (USDA), Indiana ranks 11th in the nation in agriculture sales, contrib- uting an estimated $ 31.2 billion in sales to Indiana's economy each year. Roughly $10 billion of those sales are of actual agriculture prod- ucts sold by Indiana's farm- ers, such as crops, meat and dairy products. More than $4.6 billion of those agricul- tural products are exported around the world. But despite many industry successes, 2018 was a chal- lenging year for many in the agriculture industry. Indiana is the fifth largest U.S. pro- ducer of soybeans and hogs and both commodities suf- fered due to low prices in 2018. According to the USDA, net farm income has fallen nearly 50 percent from its peak in 2013, making 2018 a particularly challenging year for agriculture profes- sionals. Because of the dras- tic decrease in farm income, farm debt has also been on the rise over the last five years, increasing by 30 per- cent since 2013. "Despite the challeng- es, agriculture remains an economic driver of Indi- ana, supporting more than 107,000 Hoosier jobs," said Randy Kron, INFB presi- dent. "There are many ca- reer opportunities in agricul- ture, whether you're farm- ing or supporting our farm- ers through one of the state's many agribusinesses." Indiana's farmers are known for their production of corn and soybeans, but In- diana agriculture is diverse. According to the USDA's national ranking, Indiana ranks number one in duck production, number two in popcorn and ice cream pro- duction, and number three in tomatoes, eggs and spear- mint. INFB represents more than 72,000 Hoosiers that are involved in agriculture. To celebrate this year's National Ag Day, individual county Farm Bureaus across the state will host commu- nity events of all kinds. The majority of events are fo- cused on educating elemen- tary school children about the importance of agricul- ture in Indiana. "On Ag Day, we celebrate the many contributions ag- riculture makes, not only in our local communities across Indiana, but the entire world," said Isabella Chism, chair of the ACA and INFB's 2nd vice president. "Agricul- ture is an essential part of In- diana's economy and we ap- preciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abun- dant and affordable products of all kinds" This year marks the 46th anniversary of ACA's Nation- al Ag Day. Rawlins receives Innovative Librarians award Stephanie Rawlins, di- rector of the Pike Coun- ty Public Library, received the 2019 Innovative Librar- ians Award. The award is a national award sponsored by Gwinnett County Pub- lic Library's Innovative Li- brarians Award, which is co-sponsored by the School of Information at San José State University. It is open to all students who are cur- rently enrolled and pursu- ing a graduate degree in Li- brary Science, or who have graduated with an ML S/ MLIS within the past two years. The Innovative Librari- ans Award recognizes those library science graduate students who put forward new ideas that improve li- braries and library servic- es. Whether large or small, these ideas have the ability to change the way people experience libraries. The winning entrant selected from the five finalists will receive a $1,000 cash prize. The top entries came from three public libraries, one school and one academic. Rawlins' proposal is ti- tled "Virtual Healthcare." She stated in the proposal that "the county I work in is affected by the digital di- vide. Many of our older res- idents are without internet access. Many of our resi- dents do not own comput- ers, smart phones, tablets, or have an email address. They rely on the library to help them with technology or provide the technology services they need." "Virtual health has the potential to create bet- ter health care awareness, minimize hospital admis- sions, and better monitor long-term and post-hospital patient care. Virtual health care is becoming more af- fordable and accepted by a wide range of insurance companies. If the library could have a room set aside for virtual healthcare, ma- ny residents could use it for wellness checks, follow-up appointments or question and answer sessions. For our older residents, a trip to the library is much clos- er than a trip to the doctor. Families with children al- ready visit weekly and ev- eryone in the county knows where the library is located." "With a partnership with the hospital on this proj- ect, maybe a healthcare professional could be avail- able weekly to support the library's efforts to better healthcare in the county." Stephanie Rawlins Ruby Gray Birthdays Gray celebrates 95th birthday with card shower Ruby Gray, formerly from Cato, is celebrating her 95th birthday on March 21.
