Talking about hog feeder operations in the Buffalo watershed

Posted By on Wed, May 1, 2013 at 8:18 AM

Interested in the debate over a commercial hog feeding operation on Big Creek in the Buffalo National River watershed?

A grassroots group, Buffalo River Rescue, will hold a public meeting at 6 p.m. today at the Fayetteville Public Library about the 6,500-hog C&H operation in Mount Judea. Speakers include Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan, Bob Cross of the Ozark Society, and Terry Spence of the Socially Responsible Agriculture Project. Panelists are Bob McKinney (Sierra Club), Joe Neal (Audubon Society), Deborah Doss (Arkansas Canoe Club), Dr. Sonya Hausmann (environmental scientist), Paul Lowrey (geologist), and state Rep. Greg Leding of Fayetteville.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
