Farm Bureau News 73rd ANNUAL CONVENTION • VIRGINIA FARM BUREAU Avoid 1-81 on the way to meeting By JASON DOWNS Special to the Farm Bureau News ROANOKE —Before you pack up the car and head to the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention, think about taking a route other than Interstate 81. The Sunday before the convention, Nov. 29, is one of the busiest travel days of the year on 1-81. Thanksgiving is a time when a lot of people are traveling to be with their families. The Wednesday and Sunday of Thanksgiving are two peak travel days. 1-81 is bad enough without the added traffic on the holidays. The stretch of 1-81 in Virginia is two lanes almost all the way through. With all the commercial trucks and the hilly terrain, it could make for a long drive. Also, Gospel group returns to convention By KATHY DIXON VFBF Communications Specialist ROANOKE—They're bankers, teachers, salesmen and businessmen by day and gospel singers by night.

He will kick off the four-day event in Roanoke with his keynote address titled, "Political Science and Hot Air: Global Warming and El Nino."

Farm Bureau News, Volume 57, Number 10 Hiatt elected president of Virginia Farm Bureau By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor ROANOKE—Bruce Hiatt, vice president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation since 1988, was elected president of the organization on Dec. 3. Hiatt, 58, was elected at the end of the four-day annual convention of the organization in Roanoke. "This will be one of the most important days of my life," Hiatt said moments after he was elected.

December 1998/ January 1999 Ag leaders to take big issues to lawmakers Being elected president of the state's largest farm organization on Dec. 3 was an honor beyond my wildest dreams. I am thrilled to be the new president and I am committed to doing the best job I know how to serve the dedicated county leaders across the Old Dominion. And dedicated they are. From policy development meetings to county board meetings to the resolutions meeting and finally the convention, Farm Bureau members spent countless hours carving out issues that need the most attention in 1999. Many of you also found time to attend other pressing meetings and public hearings, even though you had crops waiting in the fields and hungry livestock waiting to be fed. Some of you even conducted farm tours for legislators and others to keep our issues in the forefront and to show our lawmakers and the public that our farms are environmentally sound. Now we take these very important issues to the halls of government f...

Farm Bureau News Repeated facts needed to stop 'hysteria train' By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor ROANOKE—So much false information about global warming has been distributed that it will take many repeated facts to stop the "train of hysteria," Virginia's state climatologist said Nov. 30 Dr. Patrick Michaels, the state climatologist, spoke at the opening day of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention in Roanoke. Most of those in Michaels' audience were farmers, and he told them that global warming does exist, but not nearly on the scale that the national media report in story after story. The planet's mean temperature has increased by only one-tenth of I degree over the past decade, not by the 2 degrees that global warming researchers had predicted. "That is statistically insignificant," Michaels added. Global warming is only making the coldest air masses in the winter a little less cold, especially in Siberia and in the Northwest United States. The slight global ...
