Cracker Barrel slated

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Marshall Nuckolls
The first Clay County Cracker Barrel for 2010 has been scheduled.

The event will take place at the Perry Township/Cory Volunteer Fire Department, 500 S. Center St., Cory.

The Clay County Farm Bureau will sponsor the event, which is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 16.

Clay County Farm Bureau representative David Schopmeyer said the organization hopes to discuss House Bill 1001, the proposed property tax caps, with state legislators at the event.

"Farm Bureau is definitely against it," Schopmeyer said. "It cements it in the (state) constitution. We don't think it will do anything for property taxes."

County Farm Bureau representatives said they expect District 27 State Sen. Richard Bray, District 39 State Sen. John Waterman, District 37 State Rep. Vern Tincher, District 32 State Rep. Clyde Kersey and District 44 State Rep. Nancy Michael in attendance.

"We've asked them all to come," Farm Bureau representative Marshall Nuckolls said. "But it's a hard thing to know.

"The way (other Farm Bureau representatives) talked, they felt like everybody would try to be there."

The public is invited to attend the meeting and refreshments will be served.

Other Cracker Barrels could be scheduled this year, but no dates have been set.
