ESCALON, CA - JUNE 02: A cow eats hay at the Faria Dairy Farm June 2, 2009 in Escalon, California. As milk prices continue to plummet due to a weakening international and national demand, dairy farmers across the U.S. are struggling to turn a profit prompting many to sell off their cattle for slaughter and turn fields into corn crops. Within the past year, milk went from $17 per one hundred pounds down to $10 per hundred pounds. Most dairy farmers need to make at least $15 per hundred pounds to break even.

Hood was the former executive director of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.

“Kim was very personable and had a good sense of humor,” Jason Houston, the current executive director of the Chamber, said. “She was very outgoing. I’ve said she was uniquely suited to be in a public position like this. It gave her the opportunity to get out and meet folks, which you do an awful lot of in this job.”
