Letter writer misrepresented landowners

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

This letter is in response to the letter by Steven J. Beck in the March 22 issue of Farm and Dairy. The tone of the letter is to create class warfare by demonizing rich landowners who inherited or invested in land and are now selling their mineral rights. They now don’t live on their land […]

LETTER: When counting your shale money, remember your local community

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Editor: It seems everywhere you go you hear or see something about the oil and gas phenomenon that is occurring in and around Columbiana County. Testimonies of property owners getting checks well into the six- and seven-digit mark are plentiful. Overnight millionaires make Jed Clampett and the Beverly Hillbillies seem like a modern day reality […]

Protecting the family farm should be our top priority

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Editor: (Concerning guest commentaryy by David Kay in Dec. 15, 2011 issue of Farm and Dairy.) It is obvious that the original purpose of the Extension service has not been fulfilled and neither has the public good been served by such projects. Development sociology basically means authoritarian manipulation — certainly not constitutional, and at the […]

Reader: Taxation system needs change

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Editor: In regard to previous protest letters that I have written in the past concerning the outrageous, unfair and discriminatory taxation system in this country, I must once again put pen to paper to protest for those less fortunate. Why in the world do our various government agencies tax social security benefits, unemployment benefits and […]

Reader: Nonlandowners need to unite

Friday, March 16, 2012

Editor: I’m writing to address concerns about nonlandowners who don’t realize the consequences for them of the so-called “Shale Boom.” By now most, if not all, of them have heard repeatedly about how dangerous chemicals used in hydraulic fracture drilling can get into aquifers and, then, into drinking water. They have also heard about other […]

Pacelle: HSUS is willing to find common ground with farmers

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Pacelle: The HSUS is willing to sit down and find common ground with agricultural producers to find solutions that are good for farmers, consumers, and animal welfare.

LETTER: Farm Bureau responds to the needs of members

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Editor: Recently a letter was written asking us where our “power” as an organization comes from as Farm Bureau. Stark County Farm Bureau, as well as every other county farm bureau, is led by its members. We have a 14-member volunteer board of farmers elected by its members at our annual meeting. We ask our […]

LETTER: Humane Society is not being honest with its donors

Friday, March 2, 2012

Editor: It’s mind-boggling for HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle to dismiss the 150-plus complaints that have been filed with the Federal Trade Commission against his group. Dozens have come from people who have given money to HSUS. For Pacelle to act like it’s all part of a disingenuous ploy is indicative of his arrogance and disregard […]

LETTER: Ron Paul will put the Constitution back in its proper place

Friday, March 2, 2012

Editor: The March primary is right around the corner and I have yet to see much regarding Ron Paul in Ohio. I have been a Ron Paul follower for years now. Frankly, it amazes me that no one seems to be too interested in upholding our Constitution these days including most already elected officials. I […]

LETTER: Learning experience for family at livestock auction

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Editor: If you have done any calf rearing you know how difficult the task at hand can be. My husband and I took our son to a livestock auction as part of his 4-H learning experiences. This was not the first livestock auction we have attended. What a learning experience it was. I love animals. […]
