    Dick Geary, Featured Columnist|Updated Feb 4, 2020

    Ranchers get a bad rap. Agriculture is portrayed as a destructive industry, composed of corporate-owned operations that practice aggressive farming techniques, abuse their livestock, plant genetically modified crops and operate with a contempt for the land, the animals and the consumer. We hear about human health issues attributed to antibiotics fed to animals in their daily rations. We also hear that the animals are tightly confined, and that the ground is saturated with...

  • Dear Dietitian

    Leanne McCrate, Featured columnist|Updated Feb 4, 2020

    Dear Dietitian, I am health conscious and try to get enough fiber in my diet, but sometimes I miss the mark. I noticed some protein bars have 10 grams of fiber. Are these good for you? Jim Dear Jim, The Dietary Guidelines recommend Americans consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber per day. Fiber is found naturally in plant foods and is defined as an indigestible carbohydrate. This simply means the human body cannot break down fiber, and it passes through the digestive system unchanged...

    Tammy Jordan, BVD|Updated Feb 4, 2020

    So there's been some buzz the last few years in regards to having a 'word of the year." I've known people who have practiced this method since 2016 or so, and they say it has helped them live more intentionally, as well as kept them on track with a sense of accomplishment each year.

In a few years, it was a dentist. Where the dentist idea came from I have no idea! Of course, there would be periods where I...
