I 'm spending the week in Indiana with Brownfield's resident Hoosier, Dave Russell. We spent some time today at Indiana Farm Bureau offices in Indianapolis where we visited with Public Relations Team Leader Andy Dietrick. We also stopped in to see Mike Baise, Director of Issues Management for IFB.
Mike is an old friend to both Dave and me. He was the Assistant Director of Agriculture in Illinois from 1986 to 1994, serving with Directors Larry Werries, Jack Rundquist and Becky Doyle. I was farm director at WJIL in Jacksonville and later at WTAX in Springfield during Mike's tenure at Illinois Department of Ag.
