Max Armstrong talks about a weekend food drive, store closings, drought, cheap soybeans and Mother's Day dining out.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is tomorrow.

Retail chains have closed more stores to date this year than all of last year.

The drought footprint continues to shrink, covering less than 10% of the nation. The lowest amount since keeping drought records.

Soybeans are the cheapest they've been in about a decade. And sunflowers acreage might increase.

Mother's Day is Sunday, and many will go out for dinner.
