2 COMMENTS Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. It was the day before thanksgiving, 1948. I was 14 years old. We had an early Illinois snow that year and the ground was covered with a fluffy white mantle. In the moonlight, the snow enshrouded woodland glowed in a mysterious, almost magical half–light. My steps were muffled by the soft snow as I moved forward. It was one of those special, otherworldly, northern winter nights when I ordinarily wouldn’t expect to be surprised because the very act of being there was a miracle. How could there possibly be more? And yet, well, its times like that when the unexpected happens, when all nature holds her breath, waiting, but waiting for what? Suddenly, unexpectedly I saw something move. A rabbit, a Molly cottontail, sat there on her powder–puff tail as she silently surveyed the small clearing. A second rabbit joined the first, and then, two more. Quite suddenly one of the rabbits dashed across the clearing and stopped on the far side. Another rabbit ventured out into the clearing, stomped its hind feet rapidly only to dash away again, leaving behind that barely audible whisper of sound, ‘Thump, Thump, Thump. Soon that tiny, magical, moon-bright glade was full of rabbits, perhaps as many as a dozen, all racing into the clearing, stomping their strange but wonderful dance, dashing here and there, in a whirlwind of small furry bodies. I watched as at times two rabbits would approach each other and briefly touch noses in greeting, or so it seemed, and then they would be off again about their wild capricious dance. The soft snow was soon packed down as those many, little fairy, furry feet thumped and then thump, thumped again, until magically; all the rabbits were dancing their mysterious arabesque. Oh God, how I wanted to join them, to dance with them. Can what I saw those many years ago be anything less than that; a wild, spontaneous dance? The rabbits danced with boundless enthusiasm and joy that night. What might have possessed them? I cannot explain it. I would like to see it again, wouldn’t you? I love the moon illustration. Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Like so many rabbits dancing in the light of a winter moon, perhaps God is calling you and I to dance the dance of life with joy and enthusiastic thanksgiving. While the rabbits danced individually, their joy seemed to only reach its zenith when they danced as a wild community. We too are called to dance individually as well as together. When was the last time you danced like that? Charles Towne is a longtime resident of Apopka, member of Inspire Church and a published author. Gov.

Facebook Twitter Home Commentary Commentary: The December Tradition Continues By Gary TruittTraditions are very important to farm families. The County Fair, the State Fair, and the December farm show are all traditional trips made by many Hoosier farmers. For the past 39 years, farmers, their sons, and now their grandsons have visited the farm show at the West Pavilion at the State Fairgrounds each December. Over the years, I have seen the same families come to the show year after year. The tradition is continuing, but some of the long time visitors will notice some changes.The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door is that you will be asked to register. This will only take a few minutes; and, for your cooperation, you will have the chance to take home a professional drone package. All we will be asking is basic contact information, as well as the kind of things you are interested in so we can improve the show. Don’t worry — we are not going to sell your data.Once you hit the show floor, you will notice new colors and plenty of new exhibitors, but some of your old friends will be in their same locations. Unlike many other shows, this show is a unique blend of current and cutting-edge technology. There will even be a nod to the innovation of the past with a display of antique tractors.For the past 12 years, I have had the pleasure of putting together a daily seminar series that focused on some of the top issues of the day. However, this year I had the chance to go hog wild. There will be three days of almost non-stop programs which cover policy, production, finances, and the future. In short, there is hardly an issue we are not going to explore. What is different this year is that, not only do we have experts doing the seminars but also many farmers. Kyle Tom, Ken and Rodney Rulon, Vermillion County farmer Carter Morgan, and others will be talking about their experiences and their operations.This summer, as we were working on a vision of what this show could be, it occurred to me that most farmers I know are hands-on kind of people. This is something most other indoor farm shows don’t do: have live, hands-on demonstrations right on the show floor. Purdue Extension will show you how to use a drone on your farm and give you an excuse to convince your wife to let you buy one. NRCS will also have their rain simulator on the floor. A skeptic about the benefits of cover crops, this display will make a believer out of you. They will simulate a rain storm and show you how a cover crop helps control moisture.As a farm journalist, I have attended many seminars; and, at the end, the speakers ask for questions. Typically, the farmers in the audience sit stoically saying nothing. But, as soon as the event is over, they rush the stage to talk one-on-one with the speaker. So, I set up the Coffee Shop, sponsored by Rural King. This is a place to have one-on-one talks with our seminar speakers as well as with other experts. There will even be some free coffee and donuts to spark conversation.So, keep your tradition alive or start a new one and visit the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo, December 11-13. I look forward to seeing you at the show. If I am not in the seminar area or munching a donut in the coffee shop, then look for me at the big hand tool display, because you can never have to many hand tools. Keep the tradition alive; come to the farm show.

May 6, 2020 Find out more February 4, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Jailed journalists on hunger strike News Organisation New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council October 15, 2020 Find out more Separately, Reporters Without Borders hopes very shortly to know the reasons for the arrest and detention since 11 July last year in Cuba of Sebastián Martínez Ferrate. He is a Spanish former producer and freelance journalist who in 2008 produced a report on child prostitution in Cuba. He ceased his activities in 2009 well before his last visit to Cuba.”Reporters Without Borders hopes, in the absence of clear explanations on the part of the Cuban authorities, that this detention is not connected to the journalistic work previously carried out by Sebastián Martínez Ferrate,” the organization said.“The Cuban government has, according to our sources, apparently put forward reasons relating to national security. We have not forgotten that this type of argument has regularly been used to send to prison journalists who were only carrying out their duties.” News Follow the news on Cuba CubaAmericas News Pedro Argüelles Morán, one of four journalists in jailed Cuba, began a hunger strike 1 February to protest against the authorities’ efforts to force him into exile as the price for freeing him.Reporters Without Borders has appealed to him and another jailed journalist Albert Santiago du Bouchet, who has also started a hunger strike, to call off their action.“At the same time we call on the Cuban authorities to listen to reason and recognize that those journalists still in jail have the inalienable right to live in their own country and to exercise their right to inform there,” the press freedom body said.“This deafness is the more incomprehensible in that one of the 41 dissidents freed, out of the 52 envisaged, has had the right to stay in Cuba given to him.“The government in Havana, bound by its international commitments in the field of human rights, cannot make its own citizens stateless.” Pedro Argüelles Morán is one of the three journalists behind bars since the “Black Spring” of March 2003, the others being Iván Hernández Carrillo and Héctor Maseda Gutiérrez. Their refusal to leave the country has kept them in jail.During this time four other prisoners whose names did not originally appear on the list of those who could be freed to go to Spain from July 2010 have agreed to leave shortly for Madrid. Reporters Without Borders understands that Pedro Argüelles Morán was summoned on 20 January by the director of the prison at Canaleta in the province of Ciego de Ávila, where he is serving a jail sentence of 20 years for his opinions under the false pretext of “espionage.” During the interview the director, aided by two state officials, tried to persuade him to leave the country as a way of getting out of prison. Pedro Argüelles Morán, almost blind and very weak after seven years in detention, refused, repeating that he was innocent, and demanded the right to stay in his country as a Cuban citizen.He is reported to have refused to take a call from the archbishop of Havana, Cardinal Jaime Ortega, who had negotiated the recent liberation of political prisoners with the Spanish government and Cuban authorities. His hunger strike comes as the first anniversary approaches of the death of the dissident Orlando Zapata Tamayo, who died in prison from a lack of medical care after 80 days of hunger strike.In a gesture of respect Albert Santiago du Bouchet has decided in his turn to stop taking food from 1 February for 23 days. He was given three years for “disrespect for authority” in 2009. Reporters Without Borders called on the two men to stop their hunger strikes. “The death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo, which profoundly affected international opinion, was not without influence on the process of the freeing of the dissidents,” the press freedom body said. “A year later, do the authorities want to create other insoluble situations by giving political prisoners the choice between prison and losing their roots?” RSF_en CubaAmericas Help by sharing this information October 12, 2018 Find out more to go further News Receive email alerts Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago

They have been closed by government authorities after broadcasting statements by opposition figures. Receive email alerts RSF urges Madagascar to let journalists cover Covid-19 freely Help by sharing this information News to go further December 28, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three radio stations closed indefinitely The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa MadagascarAfrica News Three privately-owned radio stations in the port city of Toamasina, on Madagascar’s eastern coast, have been closed by government authorities after broadcasting statements by opposition figures. Radio Ny Antsika (RNA), Sky FM and Radio Feon’i Toamasina (RFT) have been off the air since 10 December 2004. The stations’ management has been summoned to police headquarters for questioning.”We believe that the broadcast of this type of interview is merely the expression of a diversity of opinions which must be allowed to exist in Madagascar if a free and pluralist information base is to be maintained,” RSF said in a letter to Telecommunications, Postal and Communications Minister Bruno Ramaroson Andriantavison. “For this reason, we ask that these three radio stations be allowed to return to the air immediately and that RFT’s and RNA’s transmitters be returned to them by local authorities.”The three stations were reportedly closed for the same reasons: “failure to obtain an operating licence from the Special Commission on Audiovisual Communication” and “failure to comply with Article 95 of the 14 September 1992 Ordinance no. 92-03 on Audiovisual Communications”. Article 95 deals specifically with comments deemed to be of a “tribalist” nature. In the letter to Sky FM ordering the closure of the station, the two opposition commentators were accused of fomenting unrest by their “tribalist comments”.After listening to the broadcasts in question, the Association of Private Radio Broadcasters (l’Association des journalistes des radios privées, AJRP) said that, in their judgement, there was nothing in the content sufficient to warrant a station’s closure. The AJRP also stressed that “confiscation of (broadcasting) equipment and other assets from a radio station may only take place if the station has defaulted on payment of a judicially-ordered fine.” The AJRP went on to say that “it is the responsibility of independent and specialised agencies to order media outlet closures – this should never be up to the simple, arbitrary will of the executive.”The censoring of the three stations is not an isolated action. In June, former comminications minister Clermont Gervais Mahazaka ordered the closure of Radio Say, an independent station known for being outspoken. Such censorship has particularly damaging repercussions in a country where the illiteracy rate is high and radio remains the primary source of information.
