Area teachers learn about agriculture in Chicago
CHICAGO -Twelve local and area teachers traveled to Cook County with the Southeastern Illinois Summer Agriculture Institute earlier this month.

The event was hosted by Lawrence, Edwards, Wabash, Wayne and White County Farm Bureaus.

During this four-day and three-night tour of Chicago and urban agriculture, teachers were able to learn about agriculture in ways that might not have occurred to them previously.

Ellis Park opens Saturday, increases purses
HENDERSON, Ky. - In past years, trainer John Hancock likely would have sold Midnight Chica and Whole Scoop, his 2-year-old fillies that impressively won their racing debuts at Keeneland and Indiana Grand.
