My hero is a Farmer

My hero is a Farmer

Mama, My Hero Didn’t Grow up to Be a Cowboy, He Grew Up to be a Farmer by Nancy Meyer Saturday, Sept 27 I attended the Harvest The Hope Concert nine miles north of Neligh, Nebraska.  This wasn’t any ordinary music concert.  It was a benefit headlined by none other than Neil Young and Willie Nelson, on behalf of a handful of grass-roots groups fighting the Keystone XL Pipeline in my home state of Nebraska. The event was massive.  Over 7000 tickets were sold and many acres of cornfield ... Full Story

Taxpayers subsidize Wal-Mart

Taxpayers subsidize Wal-Mart

You are Paying Wal-Mart’s Workers as the Company Keeps Its Money By Piper Hoffman You are paying Wal-Mart employees’ wages. Yep, you. The notoriously stingy company cuts every corner to keep prices low, and one of those corners is the payroll.

Thus you, the taxpayer, are paying part of ... Full Story

Biosolids Use is Not a Common Agricultural Practice

Biosolids Use is Not a Common Agricultural Practice

        Nitrogen fertilizers have been used for hundreds of years. Cover crops and legumes to enrich the soil, as well as manure have been used for at least a thousand years. But the residuals from waste water treatment plants, located in industrial urban centers, have only recently been applied to land and have caused serious problems beyond nuisance issues.

NY Judge critical of SEC

  Federal Judge Jed S. Rakoff was not pleased with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed settlement with Citigroup.

Citigroup's customers lost $700 million while the bank made a profit of $160 million. The SEC was willing to let Citigroup off with no admission of wrong doing and what the judge considered to be an inadequate fine. The two articles ... Full Story
