Max Armstrong offers his Thanksgiving Day edition of Midwest Digest with a story about Leonard Miller, 88, who saved a child being mauled by a pit bull, with the help of a holiday nutcracker poll. Miller is a combat veteran who served in the Korean War. From This Week in Agribusiness, even in times of heated neighborly competition, farmers still come together. This time it was for a funeral Wednesday for an 18-year-old killed in a farm accident. In Park County, Indiana, farmers lined up their equipment in tribute to the young man, Colten Lee Howard, killed in a grain bin accident.
