MOFB’s “Cut to the Chase”: Biotech will help sow seeds of world’s future harvests

by Erin McGinn

The term "sustainable agriculture" is heard a lot in congressional circles where the vast majority of elected officials who determine agriculture’s future have little or no real knowledge about what it really takes to produce our nation’s food supply. The University of California’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program defines sustainable agriculture as integrating three goals: environmental health, economic profitability and social and economic equity.

Good thinking Column: March winds and April fools

by Dr. Don Kuehle, United Methodist, retired

March is a season of uncertainty. March winds blow, sometime hot and sometimes cold. March can be as gentle as a lamb; March can also be as stormy and destructive as a lion. We’re a lot like the month of March. We are faced with a world of uncertainty. The people we count on betray us.

The job we thought was so secure

House Happenings: The “Love Fest” is over

by Rep. Jim Whorton

Do you remember one of my earlier columns when I talked about the "Love Fest" in the Capitol this year and how both parties were so "co-operative"? Do you also remember I predicted the relationship wouldn’t last? Guess what! Right! Relationships between majority leadership and the minority are beginning to change; becoming more like the past few years; in fact, maybe that’s the way it’s always

Family Daze: Spring Break Arrives Early

by Debbie Farmer

The calendar has been cruel this year. Spring may have arrived right on time, but my kids’ school’s spring break is uncharacteristically early, which has meant all sorts of problems at the Farmer homestead, and if my friends are any indication, families across the nation.

For instance, my friend Nancy is a work-at-home mother. She analyzes reports or something like that. All I really know is that

Letter to the Editor – Samuel and Deloris Read

Dear Editor,

We have been reading in the News Press and the Gallatin paper about the solution the city council is trying to find to help eliminate some of the dog problems.

Straight Talk with Sam: SAVE Act needed for our borders

by Congressman Sam Graves

Harry Truman said it’s amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. That’s why I signed onto legislation authored by Heath Shuler, a North Carolina Democrat. I’m not interested in who gets credit for helping stop illegal immigration, I just want it stopped.

The SAVE Act would increase the number of border patrol agents by 8,000. There isn’t any question

Coonridge Digest: Goin’ through ‘a rough patch’

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

"Freida, somebody’s marked days off the calendar. What am I missin’?"

"Herb, the days are too short to list everything you’re missing. I’m marking off the days ‘til Stimulus."

"You’re pregnant?"

"No, Herb. That takes cooperation. It’s Washington’s economic stimulus. Six hundred bucks coming in May and I’m already making plans for the windfall."

"We each get six hundred bucks?"

Five years later the Pentagon sets the cost of the war at $600 billion and counting. Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobel prize-winning economist (and a critic of the war) sets the long-term cost of the war
