Property Rights Coalition Covers Oregon County Land Grab, Camp Zoe and GMO’s Vs. Heirloom Seeds Thursday Night at El Rancho Restaurant, Cabool
The Ozarks Property Rights Coalition will meet Thursday May 26 at 7 pm at the El Rancho Restaurant in Cabool, Missouri according to co-chair Bob Parker. Topics for the evening will be the DNR land grab in Oregon County using funds intended to clean up toxic lead areas in the lead mining counties. “After the purchase was arranged in secrecy to buy almost 5,000 acres the county commissioners of Oregon County, most area state representatives and Senator Mike Cunningham lead efforts in the legislature to force the sale of the land and use of the funds for their original environmental clean-up purpose., Parker said. Also on the agenda will be an update by Jerry King, president of Voice of the Ozarks, on Camp Zoe in Shannon County. The main speaker of the evening will be Mike Knocks of White Harvest Seed Company, Hartville, who will explain the differences in genetically modified crops, heirloom seeds and hybrid seeds. Knocks will give tips on seed saving and explain the potential health problems with GMO’s, misinformation circulated on GMO’s and why they should be avoided by both farmers and gardeners.
“This is a new meeting location for us” Parker said. “The El Rancho Restaurant is in the Sinclair truck stop building in Cabool on Highway 60 on the north side of the highway. They are generously allowing us to use their meeting room and we encourage everyone to come early and enjoy the buffet.” For more information call 417-264-2435.
(Please note that El Rancho is a bit east of the Hwy 63 exit in Cabool)
