Following up on Monday night's political party caucuses we had reports form Micah Hayek, publicity chairman for Story County Republicans; Lewis Rosser, caucus chair for Story County Democrats, and James Schneider, Libertarian Party Chair. We introduced the National Farmers Union vimeo production of the colloquium “The Farm Bill and Beginning Farmers: How to create a sustainable path for the next generation in agriculture,” led by Roger Johnson, National Farmers Union president. For commentary on the stresses on the farm economy and family farmers, we heard from George Naylor, IFU member with an activist history in the National Family Farm Coaltion and the Center for Food Safety. We wrapped up the program with previews of two upcoming plays from regional theatre groups, Nunsense!, by the Boone Community Theatre and Almost Maine, by Ankeny Community Theatre.
