Partnerships and planning key to successful drilling operations

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Editor: At the Columbiana County General Health District we have been involved with aspects of oil/gas drilling operations for several years now. We do a great deal of research and forecasting to develop planning and initiatives for that response. Some of this initial research involved finding similarities between oil/gas drilling occurring throughout the country, and […]

Vote for the Harrison County Cooperative Extension levy

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Editor: I am definitely voting for the new Harrison County Cooperative Extension levy coming up at the March 6 election. Please go vote, even if that is the only thing you make it out for this time. A few years ago, I realized that my unused pasture was growing poverty grass, and I wondered if […]

Raw milk: Both sides of the issue need to be addressed

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Editor: I would like to discuss some of the remarks made by Mr. Scott Shalaway. A while back he wrote in the Farm and Dairy that people should pen their cats up. Well the farmer’s barn cats roam at will and kill birds now and then but it keeps the mice and rats out of […]

LETTER: Humane Society’s mission is to help all animals

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Editor: The announcement by Rick Berman’s Center for Consumer Freedom that it had discovered 120 complaints made to the Federal Trade Commission concerning The Humane Society of the United States (Watchdog Group Calls on FTC to investigate the Humane Society, Feb. 15, 2012) is not so much news as a confirmation that, like the deceitful […]

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Editor: Two years ago I moved onto a 65-acre Harrison County farm property. Since I am a forester, and not a farmer, I have depended heavily on Extension for educating me on such issues as beekeeping, raising chickens and keeping cattle. I have found that 40 years experience as a professional forester is of very […]

Reader: Where does Farm Bureau’s power come from?

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Editor: I have been a 34-year member of the Stark County Farm Bureau. I did not renew my membership for 2012 as I find I no longer have any common interests. My home has been on the market for 23 years. When it was put on the market originally, it was in pristine condition, having […]

Reader: Government spending needs to be curbed

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

I was disheartened to read of the public outcry in Carroll County over the closing of the FSA office. Given our country’s massive federal debt I can only applaud when cuts are made. The outcry in Carroll County is unjustifiable and unconscionable. Government offices do not exist to generate revenue in local communities. The are […]
