Water Tower Project

A BIG THANK YOU to all the donors from TateNation for the water tower project! We have raised ALL the funds needed to make this dream come true. 100% came from private donors and the fundraising efforts of 106.5 FM and Bob Evans restaurant. Absolutely no tax dollars were used for this project. Cass County is blessed to be able to honor Tate Stevens for sharing his dream with us!"

Hudson Elementary School and Zion Lutheran School will now be able to better serve the community, thanks to the support of local farmer, Gerrad Steuck, and America’s Farmers Grow Communities.
Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice. To further support counties declared natural disaster areas by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) due to the drought this year, winning farmers in these counties are able to direct double donations, a total of $5,000.
Bates County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Steuck the opportunity to choose two organizations to receive $2,500 donations. Steuck selected Hudson Elementary School and Zion Lutheran School. Hudson Elementary School will use the donation to make necessary improvements for the school. 
Zion Lutheran School will use the donation to further enhance its technology program.
                “I have chosen these two organizations to receive the donations because they are both constantly giving to the community, and this is a great opportunity to give something back to them,” Steuck said.
                This year, the Monsanto Fund will invest nearly $6 million in rural America through Grow Communities, which includes double donations for counties impacted by the historic drought.
In Missouri, $177,500 is being given across 71 counties.
                America’s Farmers Grow Communities is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund to partner with farmers in helping them positively impact their communities. This program is part of the Monsanto Fund’s overall effort to strengthen rural America.

Old man Winter might not be gone yet

The temperatures will climb through the 40s, 50s and perhaps into the low 60s by this weekend over much of the region, accompanied by several chances for showers and even a few thunderstorms. However, the return to "normal" conditions for late March will be short-lived as a powerful arctic cold front sweeps across the area Sunday night. As temperatures spiral back into the 30s, a secondary upper level disturbance will push across the area Sunday Night into Monday April 1st. It's no April Fool's joke that we could see some more of the white stuff.
