If the height of corn were our only economic indicator, our financial future would look very bright this year. As I drove through the 17th Senate District this past weekend, the phrase "knee-high by the Fourth of July" reverberated through my mind. I hopped out of my truck and stood next to a plot on my property to measure and I can report that the corn is already over my head; significantly past it's Fourth of July milestone.
