Help Support the Atlantic FFA Chapter

Ag/Outdoor, News

May 15th, 2014 by Jim Field

The Atlantic FFA Chapter is excited to tell you about a great way to help our FFA Chapter receive free money. It’s called The Red Brand Home Grown Program. Now through December 31st, up to $1.00 for every roll of qualifying Red Brand fence orders will be donated directly to the Atlantic FFA Chapter.

This year the Atlantic FFA has 2 sponsoring retailers, Cappel’s Ace Hardware and Orscheln Farm & Home both from Atlantic.

Last year, individual FFA chapters throughout the country received hundreds of dollars directly through Home Grown. Some even received thousands!
The Atlantic FFA Chapter could really use this kind of support. If you, or anyone you know, needs fence, we’d appreciate you buying Red Brand. Just make sure you purchase it at Cappel’s Ace Hardware or Orscheln Farm & Home – so the Home Grown dollars go to our chapter. You can get all the details about Home Grown at redbrand.com/homegrown. Or, ask a local FFA member and they can tell you all about it.

May 14th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

HARLAN, Iowa (AP) — Prosecutors say numerous abuse complaints have now been made against a former western Iowa doctor charged with molesting a 10-year-old girl in 1999. Shelby County authorities tell The Council Bluffs Daily NonPareil that other people say they were victims of 81-year-old Wing Tai Fung, now of Ontario, Canada. Fung was arrested late last month at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. A warrant for his arrest had been issued in November.

A criminal complaint says Fung molested a girl in January 1999 while treating her for a knee sprain at Myrtue Medical Center in Harlan. Fung has been charged with felony second-degree sexual abuse. Fung had an initial court appearance in Cook County, Illinois, where he waived his extradition so the case could be tried in Shelby County.
