"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Food stamps should buy only nutritious foods
Kennebec Journal - 3/15/2009.
Op-ed by Janis Cross – I was a family economist with the Consumer and Food Economics Research Division of the Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C., which designed and piloted the Food Stamp Act of 1964.

Maine Sunday Telegram - 3/15/2009.
By Ray Routhier – Maine Maple Sunday is a pretty sweet deal. Maple producers around the state open up their farms and sugarhouses to folks for free as a way to promote Maine's maple industry. The annual event is scheduled for next Sunday, March 22. So now's the time to start planning a visit. Most participating farms offer maple boiling demonstrations and let you stroll among the tapped trees. Many have free syrup samples, some atop ice cream, and many have farm animals to gaze at. Some will even have free wagon or sleigh rides.

The CARTV has also recently launched a label, BioQuebec, which allows Quebec producers to identify their products not only as organic, but as made in Quebec.
