26/NB Ready for the big one? On the upcoming 200th anniversary of the great New Madrid earthquake, Missouri’s insurance director says most homeowners today would not be adequately protected. John M. Huff, director of the Missouri Department of Insurance, says the number of consumers with earthquake coverage has decreased sharply over the past 10 years partly due to the rising cost of insurance. Most policies do not cover earthquake damage. Instead, consumers need to buy an endorsement, sometimes called a rider, on their homeowners policy. Be sure to check with your local insurance provider on their earthquake policies. Visit www.insurance.mo.gov for more information or call 800-7267390.

More than 2,500 employees and 1,600 pieces of equipment were used to clear the state’s 32,000-plus-mile highway system. Workers put in 90,000 hours and used in excess of 30,000 tons of salt and other abrasive materials while plow trucks logged 1.1 million miles. B R I E F S souri Century Farms.
