Broadcaster Press 11 February 18, 2014 www.broadcasteronline.com Clay County farmers support VHS girls’ basketball Local farmers Gene and Peg Nelsen have directed a $2,500 donation to the Vermillion High School girls’ basketball team. Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will help the school purchase a new set of uniforms and record banners, as well as provide basketball camp money. Thanks to the support of farmers across the country, more than $3.2 million is being directed to nonprofits in 1,289 counties in 39 states. “We are very excited to be receiving this generous gift,” said Jason Huska, dean of students and athletic director at Vermillion High School. “This funding will allow us to include more kids in off-season plans, while increasing recognition for the program.” America’s Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations like Vermillion High School, who are doing important work in their communities. The program offers farmers the chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to the farmer’s nonprofit of choice. The search for funding to sustain and enhance programs is a year-round job for nonprofit organizations across the country. Through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, farmers have been able to support a variety of groups, such as schools, fire departments, community centers and youth organizations like 4-H and FFA. America’s Farmers Grow Communities launched in 2010, and has since donated over $13 million to more than 5,200 nonprofit organizations across the country.

The report shows five sets of EB-5 loans that were assembled from foreign investors for South Dakota projects. The projects were Dakota Provisions of Huron, Northern Beef Packers of Aberdeen, NextEra Energy’s Day County 2 Wind Farm, Basin Electric’s Deer Creek generation plan at Elkton and Deadwood Mountain Grand hotel and casino at Deadwood. The report doesn’t show the amounts raised or the numbers of EB-5 investors involved for each project, however. Under EB-5, foreign investors who provide at least $500,000 apiece for job creation in the United States can become eligible for permanent U.S. visas to live anywhere in the nation. The report doesn’t show two projects that were rejected by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services after EB-5 loans were assembled for them. USCIS oversees the EB-5 program at the federal level. One of the rejected loan pools was a third round of financing for Dakota Provisions. The other was for Iberdrola Resources for its Buffalo Ridge II wind farm. The resolution calls for the Legislature’s joint committee on government operations and audit to conduct hearings.
