August 1996 A great idea can win you a national prize "Gee, I wish I'd thought of that!" "Gosh, I came up with a similar idea years ago." Do either of these phrases sound familiar? If you've ever envisioned a new tractor for the 21st century, or the next miracle crop, then submit your ideas or inventions to the American Farm Bureau Federation's Farmer Idea Exchange. It's an annual contest, but don't look at it as just a contest. It's also an opportunity for growth, a chance for experimentation and a test of your creativity. Speeding vehicles create hazards on agriculture roads (Continued from page 10) motorists must not cross a solid line to pass. On roads without any lines, they must not pass while approaching a curve or a hill. When trailed by a line of traffic, tractor operators should pull off the road in a safe place and allow the faster vehicles to pass, Stone said. Tractor use of roads is not likely to diminish in the near future. In recent years, the average farm in Virginia...

Farm Bureau News / Volume 55, Number 8 FBI, Farm Bureau uncovering insurance fraud By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor Most insurance claims are legitimate, but more and more suspicious ones are catching the attention of investigators. A car with five occupants reportedly tumbled down a 150foot embankment in Buchanan County. The car's owner had insurance through the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. Claims representative Darryl Sarver, who is also a special investigator for VFB, grew suspicious of the claim because of several "red flags." Although the Ford Tempo sustained enough damage to make it a total loss, the occupants did not summon an ambulance or call police officials to the scene to investigate it. Accompanied by the driver, Sarver walked more than a mile to the wreck scene after climbing over a locked gate at the entrance to the private road. It was a scorching afternoon in July 1992. Sarver found evidence that the car had gone down the embankment. The driver ex...

September/October 1996 Wytheville couple win Farmers of the Year Robbie and Lynn Williams try to live by a motto that's tacked to the refrigerator in their Wytheville farm home. "Look back to see how far you've come, before looking forward to see how far you have to go," it reads. According to the Williamses, who were named the 1996 Young Farmer Couple of the Year, they have lived up to that motto. "Our hard work has really paid off," said Robbie one warm july night after he had finished cutting hay. "We're proud of what we've done." In the 12 years since they've owned their beef cattle farm, the Williamses have increased the number of stocker cattle from 32 head to almost 500. They farm 326 acres, 40 of which they own. They grow 40 acres of corn silage, 52 acres of alfalfa hay and 35 acres of mixed grass hay. The Williamses also custom plant, cultivate and harvest 200 acres of crops for other land owners. The farm couple was excited about winning the Young Farmer of the Year Award....

September/Octobcr 1996 VFB fraud investigators face danger at times By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor Investigating insurance fraud is dangerous at times for Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. investigators. During questioning about a suspicious claim, a policyholder removed a pistol from a drawer and placed it on his desk to intimidate Frank Dunton, supervisor of the VFB Special Investigation Unit. "I don't want this to get ugly," the policyholder told Dunton. Dunton suspected the policyholder had burned down his own $200,000 house and wanted to defraud VFB. Fortunately, Dunton was accompanied by a plain clothes FBI agent, who was armed. Dunton continued to take a recorded statement from the policyholder. During the interview, everyone remained calm and Dunton got the necessary information that enabled VFB to avoid paying for the house. Going to the scene of house fires poses another danger, especially when arson is involved, said Douglas S. Fields, a VFB claims represe...

Farm Bureau News Tastier produce is in Eastern Shore supermarkets By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor Supermarket shoppers on the Eastern Shore are getting tastier produce, thanks to a program that links local farmers with stores. Now in its 10th year, the Delmarva Shore to Store Produce Marketing Program continues to attract more and more food stores. The program encompasses Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. This year, 76 stores are participating in the program, compared to 49 in 1995. The program runs for 16 weeks during the spring and summer growing season. Virginia's Eastern Shore season is the longest of the three states, making the program run beyond the 16-week mark. In the late 1980s, the program helped move $300,000 in local produce per year, said Hugh H. Robinson, marketing specialist for the program. Now, Shore to Store helps sell more than $1 million per season. Money that would have gone into the pockets of farmers in Mexico, Texas, California or Florida is now going ...

September/October 1996 Va. market shipping vegetables across America Facility's volume of produce totals $6 million yearly By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor MELFA—Starting with peas in late April and finishing with collards by Christmas, the Eastern Shore Farmers' Market is the shipping point for tons of produce going across America. Built in 1993, the state-owned warehouse has built-in coolers. These are beneficial to small and medium-size farm operations on Virginia's Eastern Shore, said Addison Nottingham, president of Eastern Shore Marketing Cooperative Inc., which operates the market. The farmers' market is a wholesale outlet and is not affiliated with the Delmarva Shore to Store Produce Marketing Program, which encourages store produce managers and consumers to buy local produce. Key components of the farmers' market are its hydrocooling machines and 8,000 square feet of cold storage space. Few small farm operations can afford hydrocooling machines, which are essential in...

They were given several months to respond to the questions. A few candidates didn't respond. Here are VFBF's questions and the candidates responses. 1. Are the rights of property owners adequately balanced with the protection of endangered species and wetlands? What type of legislative effort do you feel would help to ensure this balance? 2. With a skyrocketing federal deficit, do you have any solutions to stopping and/or curbing annual federal deficits to lower the federal debt? Do you support tax increases? Curbing spending? A combination of both? 3. Farmers' lifetime assets are becoming increasingly difficult to pass to the next generation. What do you propose in the estate tax law and capital gains provisions to remedy this burden? 4. The Health Care Coverage Availability a...

I have supported a budget plan introduced by a group of moderate-to-conservative "blue dog" Democrats. Our plan balances the budget in six years with no tax increases. 3. It's terrible when estate taxes force a family to sell their farm. I have opposed efforts to lower the estate tax exemption, and I think special repayment terms should be more generous and more widely available. I also support indexing capital gains. 4. Yes, I support a 100 percent deduction for self-employed health insurance.

Farm Bureau News Taxes, budget, medical costs among issues (Continued from page 15) The rights of property owners are often overlooked in an effort to over-protect wetlands and endangered species. If the actions of the federal government lower the value of privately owned property, then the federal agency that has caused this devaluation should compensate those landowners. 2. I will not even consider raising taxes. The government spends to much, we are not taxed too little. I strongly support the Balanced Budget Amendment. In order to achieve a balanced budget, we must curb spending. In addition, I would like to see a law passed requiring a twothirds majority of the Congress to raise taxes. 3. The American dream is part of our heritage. However, I fear that it is rapidly becoming a quaint story of the past. This dream is fading, in part, because the government is penalizing families for passing down assets to next generations. I strongly support an immediate increase in the exemptio...
