Bridges key piece to toting big soybean harvest

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 08/10/2014 - 03:30

In this July 25, 2014 photo, the owner of Stockland Grain Co. in Stockland, Ill., says this small bridge just west of town is widely used by farmers trying to reach the company's elevator. But the little bridge won't handle fully loaded trucks, forcing farmers to make extra trips and spend extra money. The trade groups that represent soybean farmers say bridges like this all across the country need improvement and they're hoping a campaign to focus attention on this critical piece of the transportation infrastructure they rely on will pay off with better bridges and a better understanding among government decision-makers of their importance to farmers. (AP Photo/David Mercer)STOCKLAND, Ill. (AP) — Small bridges across the soybean-growing Midwest can't handle fully loaded farm trucks.

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 08/10/2014 - 02:56

Amanda Bergeron-Bauer, left, and Crystal Bergeron-Bauer pose for a photo in Lincoln, Neb., Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, as their 5 year-old son Emmett joins the picture. Amanda Bergeron-Bauer, 34, and her partner of 15 years, Crystal, have been married less than a year, but went through the process of legally changing their names in 2009, after deciding to have a child. Amanda fears that should anything happen to her, the 5-year-old son she bore could be taken from Crystal, who is not recognized by the state of Nebraska as the boy's legal parent, even though she and Amanda have raised the boy together since his birth. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)OMAHA, Neb.

(AP Photo/Rebecca Vassie)Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Ugandans can face a barrage of discrimination and sometimes violence in their everyday lives, but scores of them turned out to march in a gay pride parade Saturday. The gathering in the town of Entebbe was the first since a Ugandan court overturned an anti-gay law on a technicality. Sponsors of the law, which called for jail terms up to life for people convicted of homosexuality, plan to reintroduce it later this month. Some attendees wore masks to conceal their identities.
