Reader boycotting country music star

Monday, December 14, 2009

Editor: On Dec. 2, I heard something that made me sad and very concerned. Carrie Underwood gave a very large amount of money to the Humane Society of the United States. This very powerful group has been outspoken about Livestock Producers and the products they provide. The goal of the Humane Society of the United […]

Support S-1645

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Editor, Recently, the Progressive Agriculture Organization (Pro Ag) and the Pennsylvania Farmers Union (PFU) held a dairy rally at the Roseville Grange in Brookville, Pa. (Jefferson County). It was rewarding to witness two organizations standing side by side for the benefit of all dairy farmers. My husband and I have been members of PFU for […]

Issue 2 poll was unfair

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Editor: I am very disturbed at your “poll” this week regarding whether or not Issue 2 will improve livestock treatment in Ohio. You could, at the very least, have a choice that indicates people think that livestock treatment is, and has been, overwhelmingly humane in Ohio. Your choices indicate that all animals have been raised […]

Thank you for passing Issue 2

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Editor: A big “thank you” for the support and endorsement of passing State Issue 2. This issue was supported by small farmers, large farmers and non-farmers, organic, non-organic, grain, livestock, fruit and vegetable farmers, plus the nursery and landscaping industry, independents, democrats, republicans, and tea parties — across the board, we had support. With the […]

Let’s get out of this hole

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Editor: When you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop digging. The hole here is caused by a faulty applied pollution test EPA used to implement the CWA and the digging deeper is EPA’s resistance to correct this test, which presently ignores all the pollution caused by nitrogenous (urine and […]

This .2 mill replacement levy is fully endorsed by the American Cancer Society Advisory Board of Columbiana County.

Set the standard for the nation with Issue 2

Monday, October 26, 2009

Editor: I want to urge everyone to vote yes for Issue 2. It’s a shame that laws need to be created to protect us from outside minority interests who want to do away with animal agriculture. So why not have someone who knows about agriculture help review the current standards and update them with any […]

I must vote no on Issue 2

Friday, October 23, 2009

Editor: Voters will decide whether or not to amend Ohio’s Constitution for the purpose of creating a 13-member Livestock Care Standards Board that will essentially govern every aspect of Ohio’s agriculture community where livestock is concerned. I must admit that having not been engaged actively in farming for some years, I really didn’t pay too […]

Issue 2 is fine, but do we need another amendment?

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Editor: Issue 2 — What does it do? A lot of us really don’t know. Maybe no on really knows. The hope is it will keep animal rights legislation from changing farming in Ohio, thereby securing present methods and costs. The biggest threat such legislation can produce is the loss of yet another American industry. […]

Here is what they aren’t saying about Issue 2

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Editor: I recently attended a meeting where a representative of the Farm Bureau made a 20-minute Power Point presentation arguing that without Issue 2, Ohio agriculture will be threatened by outside animal rights activists that will put thousands of Ohio family farmers out of business. What he didn’t say was Issue 2 is a Constitutional […]
