Jacob Beachy Millersburg Ohio

Wal Mart Hitching post Millersburg Ohio.
"I've talked to Amish furniture makers and dealers, and some have just quit," said JACOB BEACHY, a bishop in a new-order church in the Millersburg area. JACOB BEACHY is treasurer of an Amish Helping Fund, a nonprofit organization that serves as a bank to many Amish and a savings and loan to those trying to get a foothold in farming. The fund pays 4.5 percent interest on savings and lends the money to the Amish at 4.75 percent.

Some Amish furniture makers and dealers have quit because buyers are holding off on purchases. Others have lost factory jobs. "It trickles down to them," said Fanny Herb-Miller, editor of the Sugarcreek-based newspaper The Budget." Click to read Mike Harden commentary: Economic downturn hurts some Amish, too.

New Research Center in Mexico
MEXICO - The University of Missouri announced the new MU Plant Science Research Center Wednesday morning. Local leaders gathered in Mexico where the research center will be built. Connie and Eddie Sydenstricker donated the land for the project. The project will include a new Mexico technology park. Researchers say the opportunity to test new plant technology in the field is why the Mexico facility is crucial.

"It's not good enough to stay in a lab. We have to find a way into the greenhouse and then into a field like the ones behind us. And as we grow those crops we need to be able to take them to a laboratory like this one to test them even further," said Dr. ROGER BEACHY from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.

Vern Beachy

I have finished my memoir A Tear-Stained Letter two months ahead of time. Poetically, during the week of Melinda’s birthday on October 8th. After 7 months of writing, 70,229 words, about 300 to 350 printed pages. My literary agent is excited about the possibility of a ‘sale’ to a publisher soon.
Tear-Stained Letter is one of the most personal things I have ever written and probably will ever write again. My therapist told me early on to write a letter to Melinda as a way to ease the grieving process. I decided to turn that letter into a book, that is why the title.
I have started writing another book, also a memoir. This one deals with having multiple sclerosis and my ability to walk again with the help of a new MS drug called Tysabri (that and many prayers). Click for pictures and more information about Vern on his web site.

An Amish bishop shared insight into his culture's faith, history, lifestyle and shunning as part of Tiffin-Seneca Public Library's Community Wide Read.

Tiffany Beachy

For those who may not know, I'll be travelling around South America for the next few months, living it up! First, I'm going to a Cerulean Warbler and Golden-winged Warbler conference in Colombia, then down to the Galapagos (again, yay!) to go on a *free* cruise with a friend who's a guide, then to Peru to give some lectures (in Spanish) at a workshop for a Christian conservation group called A Rocha, then to Venezuela to work on a project studying Cerulean Warblers on their wintering grounds until early February. It should be a grand adventure and I'm really looking forward to it! Click here for Tiffany's blogsite. I have no idea how often I'll be able to update it, but hopefully you will find it interesting.

Harry Peachey Curator Columbus Zoo Ohio

Bats, black cats and spiders -- what a frightening menagerie! Or so many legends suggest, particularly at Halloween. Countless stories and movies paint those and other myth-encrusted creatures as omens of bad luck.
Not so, according to HARRY PEACHEY, who has worked at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for 28 years. He serves as curator of the Mainland Asia region, with its exhibits of flying foxes (giant fruit bats), golden-mantled bats and a variety of felines. "Kids should understand that spiders, bats and cats all have a positive role to play," PEACHEY said, "and most of the negative things that people think about those animals isn't true."

Danforth scientists say they are committed to stamping out global hunger through disease resistant crops that conserve resources.
"They believe in the mission that plant science can improve the human condition," said ROGER BEACHY, president of the center. "This science can help the environment, and food safety, and food abundance."
Biotech proponents say such research is misunderstood, and its potential contributions are being thwarted by an unfair public perceptions.
"There's nothing but good reporting from the science," Beachy said. "We're disappointed when politicians don't have the conviction to go forward."
The rising cost of food, Beachy continued, seems to be helping sway some opinions. The global mind set, he said, "is slowly changing." Click here to read the complete article By Georgina Gustin ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 09/29/2008
