Well this frosts me white

While taking a much-needed break from editing the very first issue of the Herman Hoffman Tribune, to be published for January 7, 2010, I read through a few area newspapers.

One of them, the Chokio Review, published an article by Minnesota Commissioner of Agriculture Gene Hugoson. In it, Huguson talked about the importance of agriculture when it comes to job creation and retention in Minnesota. He highlighted the woeful job outlook that our state and nation are both facing.

Nowhere in the article does he mention how important it is to keep farmers on the land, operating their family-owned farms, keeping the means of production for our food as local as possible.
