Welcome to another addition of ‘As
the Turbine Turns”; the continuing saga of a struggling farm family caught up in a world full of nitrogen, and carbon,
and other elements of despair…. But here is hope….
I got the call. It may have been a crank
call but I did not want to risk hanging up on “Him” (actually her) like that Florida representative.
Anyway, there was no burning bush involved but I did see the light. Of course it had to be a very bright spotlight to get
my attention. What I now understand is that the incoming President wants to know your ideas, regardless of your political
persuasion, and has set up a process to collect those ideas. The information follows:
Event Name: Move the Change Agenda Forward
Description: In the last month since
the election, the challenges we face—and our responsibility to take action—have only gotten more urgent. Here
in Falmouth, citizens are coming together at Coonamessett
Farm to reflect on what can be accomplished and plan the future in and for our neighborhoods and the surrounding area. Get
connected; generate ideas; develop new perspectives on issues concerning food, energy, shelter, the local economy . . . and
enjoy some holiday cheer at the Coonamessett Farm Café, Your ideas and feedback will be collected and sent to the transition
team to help guide this nation in the months and years ahead.
Sounds like a revolution but don’t
bother bringing pitchforks or other garden implements; we won’t be marching on any government facilities …yet.
If we did want to storm a building; which would we attack? The County
Jail? Town Hall? The Social Security Office? The NMFS Lab?
I will put this on the agenda as a discussion item.
Date: Saturday, December 13, 2008
Local contact: 508-457-5980 (Facilitators:
Ron Zweig and Christina Rawley)

So come on by and generate ideas. You can also buy your tree and
do some gift shopping. I need to start clearing out the store as we close in two weeks. To expedite this process I will offer
20% off all groceries in the store that have an expiration date. Many of these are items that can be used for your holiday
entertainment and cooking; chips, crackers, crab meat, and much more.
