Horwath: Rural communities pitch in when help is needed


Growing up in western Wisconsin, I’ve been accustomed to the culture of rural areas based around agriculture.

Although my parents weren’t farmers, our place was surrounded by dairy farms, farm families and cropland. Many of the kids I grow up with, played sports with and joined in 4-H activities with either were raised on dairy farms or worked on them.
