Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
One ag-gag bill is dead in California, another is approved in Tennessee
Grist - 4/18/2013.
By John Upton - A California state lawmaker withdrew a bill Wednesday that would have prevented animal activists from documenting systematic cruelty inflicted upon farm animals. But there was grimmer news today out of Tennessee, where a similar bill was approved by the state House by a single vote. The ag-gag bill will now go to the desk of Gov. Bill Haslam (R), who is expected to sign it.
BPA levels in fetal livers higher than adult exposures
Environmental Health News - 4/18/2013.
Synopsis by Virginia T. Guidry and Wendy Hessler - A new study shows bisphenol A can cross the placenta and get into the developing livers of fetuses. Even more importantly, 80 percent of the BPA measured in the fetal livers was the more active type of BPA - free BPA - which is thought to cause health effects.
Accolades from Bon Appetit, Travel & Leisure, for North Haven’s Nebo Lodge
Bangor Daily News - 4/18/2013.
By Emily Burnham - The praise keeps piling up for Nebo Lodge, the inn and restaurant on the Penobscot Bay island of North Haven. Last summer Food & Wine magazine named Nebo Lodge chef Amanda Hallowell as one of its best new chefs. This month, two separate magazines have lauded the island eatery and hotel for its food and overall experience.
Controversial bill allowing dragging for lobsters supported by Maine regulators
Bangor Daily News - 4/18/2013.
By Bill Trotter - Though a similar proposal was roundly rejected in 2007, a bill that would allow lobsters caught in drag nets to be kept and sold in Maine is back before the Legislature. Like the last time around, there is strong opposition from Maine lobster fishermen against the bill. Unlike 2007, however, the Maine Department of Marine Resources supports the proposal.
