Flip on Ethanol, black farmer settlement and Heifer International

This is a shortened production week for the staff here at Market To Market. Usually this week is slow on news, but two big stories got our attention.

Former VP and democratic presidential nominee, Al Gore said he was wrong to support ethanol. Mr. Gore now discloses the “inconvenient truth” of how political ambition shaped his position on ethanol.

Lawmakers approve spending more than $1 billion to fund a settlement between USDA and black farmers. Now a lame-duck congress is next before the president can sign the legislation.

And, by helping the hungry produce their own food, Heifer International feeds people for a lifetime…
Those stories and market analysis with Jamey Kohake. Check your local listings for Jamey and Mark Pearson on this week’s broadcast (#3613).
