Iowa Governor Terry E. Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds attended the Nevada Rotary Club’s annual Rural Urban Day in Nevada March 12. Branstad described Nevada as ‘a rising star’ in the new agricultural economy of Iowa, mentioning DuPont’s and Lincolnway Energy’s ethanol plants. Much of the Governor’s remarks were in opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed lowering of the Renewable Fuel Standard. (Photo by Nirmal Majumdar)
