October 24 is National Food Day. Check out foodday.org for events in your hometown and how you can get involved! I am going to be at Babson College doing my best to promote sustainable healthy food production and consumption in America. I believe in the civic power of entrepreneurship to change our lives for the better. Come say hi to me if you are there.
Some of the most important writing in America is available for all to read on Mark Bittman’s Opinionator at nytimes.com. Check out this profound summation of what I think should be the beginning of a great new discussion on real solutions to the farm debates of our time. Our great state is a farming state, and this type of reportage affects us all here in Minnesota. I am no conspiracy theorist but Mark’s stunning reveal about how few people are paying attention to this study detailing the epic fail of extremism is shocking. What’s not surprising is the Occam’s Razor-type of solution, that old-fashioned hard work middle of the road most common natural format for crop rotation and maintenance works best.
Lee Dean and Rick Nelson wrote the following about Thom Pham last week in the Strib:
Restaurateur Thom Pham faces felony charges due to $30,000 of bad checks written to A-Z Restaurant Equipment of Princeton, according to a complaint filed in Mille Lacs County. When Pham failed to appear for a court appearance, an arrest warrant was issued.
When asked about the charges, Pham said, "I do all the books now, but back in the day we had bookkeepers doing different things, and I wasn't aware of that until, like I say, recently. We're working on it and I'm sure we're going to make good on it. I went to Vietnam in June to visit my sick mother, and then I came back and moved, so I've been playing catch-up. During that time I missed a lot of mail so I'm sure that's the loss of communication. We've scheduled a meeting and hopefully we will resolve it within a week," Pham said.
