PHILO -- Many farmers are working hard in the fields to beat the rain. Dick Miller lives in rural Champaign County. He's done planting corn, but still has almost all his soybeans to get in the ground. It's something which could be harder to do once it starts raining this weekend.

But, Miller isn't too worried. He says a little rain could actually help. Miller says this was one of the best years he's seen for getting corn in. It will also be a good year for bean planting if it happens soon.
