Guebert was spot on about ethanol

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Editor: Alan Guebert’s Dec. 10 editorial “Take it to the non-bank bank” was spot on with its analysis of the likelihood of higher ethanol blend approval by the Environmental Protection Agency. Thanks to the combined effort of a wide-range of agriculture groups and supporters, we will most likely see E15 be approved for consumers as […]

Ohio State Grange supports bill to update Ohio’s telecom grid

Monday, December 14, 2009

Editor: Rural citizens in Ohio are currently faced with a challenge: old and outdated legislation. The Ohio Modernization Act of 2009, S.B. 162 and H.B. 276, would modernize telecom legislation by preserving current consumer protections and removing costly regulations, which will in turn allow telecom providers to invest more in infrastructure. This infrastructure is critical […]

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 […]

American Cancer Society supports levy

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Editor: The Columbiana County Health Department Cancer Detection Clinic Levy is going to appear on the ballot Nov. 3. This .2 mill replacement levy is fully endorsed by the American Cancer Society Advisory Board of Columbiana County. We hope voters will decide to help in the mission to reduce cancer incidence and mortality. This ballot […]

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 […]
