    Food, Inc

    Food Fight

    "Faster, fatter, bigger, cheaper." A farmer describes fast food folly.

    Although I would like to call Food, Inc. a horror film, I must relax my delicate eating sensibilities to call it a disturbing documentary. Images of little chickens hanging like laundry on conveyor cables above fast-moving assembly lines and cows patiently standing knee high in feces have changed my attitude toward grilling.

    Farmers turn to soy after rough weather

    Columbus, OH – Across much of the corn belt. Farmers have their crops in the ground after a wet Spring that put them weeks behind schedule. Now, many are turning their sights on planting already delayed soybeans. And farmers across Ohio, and other portions of the Midwest are hoping the weather cooperates. A curtailed crop could mean higher corn prices for consumers. The Spring weather isn't the only reason farmers are turning to soybeans, a crop they had previously forsaken. Another is the recession. From member station WCPN in Cleveland, Mhari Saito reports.

    Ohio politicans claims opposition stalling on budget

    Columbus, OH – Ohio Governor Ted Strickland accuses Republican state senators of delaying a state budget deal for political gain as they failed to offer alternatives to his proposal to put slot machines at Ohio's race tracks. Strickland says lawmakers need to be working around the clock to close a $3.2 billion budget deficit. Ohio senate president Bill Harris says he does not have any political motives. Harris says senate hearings on the slots proposal exposed flaws in the Governor's plan. More from Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler.
