Imagine a farmer naming his family farm “GMO Farms” and advertising that his family farm only raises the most genetically modified crops. That these crops are engineered to grow faster, bigger and cheaper than all the other crops available. That all GMO’s are approved safe and healthy for human consumption by all government agencies and the judges and lawyers who defend those agencies. That the scientific consensus is that these crops are also good for the planet and better for the environment, and that by buying the GMO food that his farm produces you are doing your part to support your local economy and save the environment.

After reading in the evening paper of local, national and world conflict, I was delighted to hear my doorbell ring.
The recent support of Common Core national education standards by many is misguided. The Obama administration (Race to the Top) has been involved in “bait and switch.”
It is so nice to see the Downtown Walla Walla Farmers Market once again be a positive thriving environment to involve small businesses and entrepreneurs.
