State Farm: No plans to move Illinois headquarters

State Farm's plans to add significant office space in Dallas, Atlanta and Phoenix have made some Illinois leaders curious about the company's intentions. But the insurance firm says it has no plans to leave its Bloomington headquarters.

News reports last week on the company's expansion in those cities included speculation that it could be considering relocation. State Farm spokeswoman Holly Anderson said this week that the company isn't moving. State Farm employs 15,000 people in Bloomington. Anderson wouldn't say whether the company is hiring new employees in the three Sun Belt cities or moving workers from other locations.

The offices of both Sen. Dick Durbin and Gov. Pat Quinn said they had been in touch with State Farm about the company's plans and have been reassured.

    Fresh produce from an unlikely source in Henderson County goes to feed families in need. It's part of the inmate community service program led by Captain Duncan at the Henderson County Detention Center, and it's changing those behind bars for the better.  About a dozen inmates charged with nonviolent crimes work nearly 23 acres gardening everyday, starting as early as 4 a.m. "It gets me out of the cell everyday.
