August 1994 Tractors roar against proposed taxes By STEVE EVANS Special to the Farm Bureau News JONESVILLE—When Ann Slemp started planning a pro-burley tobacco rally in rural Lee County, she didn't realize the July 16 event would attract more than 2,000 farmers from four states. Besides Virginia, they came from Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky to protest proposed federal tax hikes on cigarettes and other tobacco products. As president of the Lee County Farm Bureau in far Southwest Virginia, Ms. Slemp wanted to put an event together that would give burley producers another chance to stand in solidarity for the future of the golden cash crop, which faces attacks on several fronts from the federal government. And she wanted a rally that would at least rival the size of a similar event held April 30 in neighboring Scott County which drew about 500 farmers and their families. Instead, Ms. Slemp and other organizers pulled in a crowd of committed tobacco producers nearly four times ...

■. ' • - Vol 53, No. 8 Fatal tractor accident proves all farmers are at risk By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor SCOTTSVILLE—John Nees was a safety-conscious, meticulous man. "He was meticulous to a fault," said his daughter, Edna Marie Banton. She invited her guests to examine her father's pickup trucks. Behind the seats were neatly stored boxes containing rags, tools, fire extinguishers and other necessities. Each box was built for the particular item stored in it. "He was the type of person who considered every angle of everything before he made decisions," said Noes' wife, Edna. "He was very careful. The equipment was always housed; eveiything was always put back in its place." Yet, despite Nees' orderly habits, he was killed in a tractor accident May 3. "As meticulous as my father was, if he could have an accident, then anyone could," Mrs. Banton said. And now the Nees family wants to do eveiything possible to find out exactly what caused the accident so other formers can pr...

September/October 1994 Healthy up Mexican cuisine by ordering correctly If recent news reports have you running in fear from your favorite Mexican restaurant—take heart You can still make some great choices and enjoy south of the border cuisine. While it's true that a chili relleno dinner can have as much saturated fat as 27 slices of bacon, and a taco salad can have more fat than a half dozen glazed donuts, knowing how to order can make meals like these much more nutritious. The staples of Mexican cooking—the beans, corn, rice and chilies—are a great start to a healthful meal. Beans are served in Mexico the way potatoes are in the United States. Many kinds of beans are used, not only as a starchy side dish, but also as sauces, fillings or dips. They are an excellent source of protein, and when combined with a grain, like corn, all eight essential amino acids are provided. That means that beans stuffed in a tortilla wrapper or served atop a pile of rice will have the same high-quali...

It also will make WLR the nation's second-largest turkey company. "We're feeling great!" said James L. Keeler, president and chief executive officer erf the Broadway-based poultry firm...

C-4 Gospel stars stay true to their roots—the church By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director COEBURN—Many of today's country music stars can trace their musical roots back to the church. Gospel music, especially in southern Baptist churches, afforded many the chance to develop the inspirational, spiritual sound detected throughout the popular music culture today. Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris and Vince Gill are but a few who cut their teeth on gospel music before moving into the world of popular country music and topping the charts. While Skaggs, Ms. Harris, Gill and others left gospel music, still others continue to preserve the pure, inspiring sound. The King's Messengers from the mountains of Southwest Virginia, where southern gospel roots run deep and true, is one such group. The three-man, two-woman band will perform for Farm Bureau members during the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 69th Annual Convention Banquet Nov. 30.
