Protect Maine through trade protectionism
Kennebec Journal - 1/24/2010.
Letter to the editor by Edward D. York – A little protectionism right for Maine? Yes! Protection means that Maine has something of value that we don't want lost or taken. I was reading the paper on how Maine dairy farmers are hurting under low milk prices, which are slowly putting them out of business.
Farmers, thespians cultivate cool collaboration
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/24/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – The party began with a little drama. "We're having a wine crisis," Jennie Hahn told me as she anxiously peered out the front door of her cousin's oceanfront home in Cape Elizabeth. Meanwhile her cousin Rebecca Millett, who chairs the Cape Elizabeth School Board, was busy in the kitchen pouring wine from the only two bottles she had on hand. A few minutes later Hahn breathed a big sigh of relief as her husband, Wade Brainerd, arrived laden down with beer and wine. Despite Hahn's concern, drama is just what the two dozen farmers and foodies gathered at Millett's home were in the mood for. We were there for the kickoff of the "Of Farms and Fables" collaborative community theater project that Hahn's group, Open Waters Theatre Arts, is producing.
Last chance to save wild bumble bees – has commercial shipping wiped them out?
Alternet - 1/22/2010.
By Adam Federman – In the early 1990s, the USDA conducted risk assessments of the interstate transport of bumble bees for commercial greenhouse pollination, particularly tomatoes. Because of the risk of introducing non-native pests and diseases into new areas, they concluded that commercially reared bumble bees should not be shipped beyond their native range.
Let’s all play nice
Kennebec Journal - 1/22/2010.
Op-ed by Denis Thoet – The annual Maine Agricultural Trades Show is always a treat. Set in the depths of winter (mid-January), it is both a wrap-up of last year's work and a look into the coming year's promise. This year's Ag Show also had a fascinating sub-theme: "Let's all play nice." Or as Rodney King had put it: "Can't we all just get along?"
