Vote yes to label GMO foods 29.10.2014 Durango Herald
I guess people don’t want to know what is happening to our food supply, or why food giants spent $11 million in Colorado to keep us uninformed. Maybe we don’t understand that the pesticide Roundup is genetically imbedded into the seeds of most food crops. Are we being slowly poisoned to death? Food giants made a long list of promises...

Pesticide drift is persistent problem for farmers 7.9.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Minneapolis • The cloud of insecticide that drifted from a neighbor’s corn field onto the asparagus on Andrew and Melissa Dunham’s central Iowa farm cast a shadow over their organic vegetable business.

Gardening with Deb Babcock: Fertilizing your garden plants 28.5.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Should we fertilize our garden plants, and if so, when and how? If your soil has been well-tended by the addition of compost and mulches, there may be no need for supplemental fertilizer. This is especially true with ornamentals since you also can recycle the spent plant materials back into the soil providing all the necessary nutrients for the next growing season. Even if you are growing and harvesting vegetables, you may not need to use fertilizers if you use compost, mulch and cover crops that add fertility back into the soil since harvesting takes away some of the soil nutrients. Growing cover crops such as buckwheat or winter oats, rye or clover and plowing them under helps put back nutrients into the soil. Your shade trees, flowering trees and shrubs and even fruit trees generally do not need any supplemental fertilizer unless the growth rate is slower than normal (generally about 6 inches per year depending on species). A soil test, conducted every three years, is the best way to determine the ...

Parkdale, Ore. • People on the West Coast have counted on fish hatcheries for more than a century to help rebuild populations of salmon and steelhead decimated by overfishing, logging, mining, agriculture and hydroelectric dams, and bring them to a level where government would no longer need to regulate fisheries. But hatcheries have thus far failed to resurrect wild fish runs. Evidence showing artificial breeding makes for weaker fish has mounted. And despite billions spent on significant habi...

For several weeks this past summer an angler, or anglers, depleted the number of brood stock muskie and northern pike in the warm water ponds in Salt Lake County.
