Plowing too deep?

(Thursday, Jan. 2, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- Angelo Tsakopoulos sank his plow blades deep into the soil of his farm, only to find himself pleading “innocent” before the Supreme Court of the United States.

This Saturday at 9AM Pacific, the Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts farmer / developer Angelo Tsakopoulos for a conversation about his Supreme Court law suit challenging the federal government’s $500,000 fine for “plowing too deep.”

(Listen here: http://www.metrofarm.com/index.asp?cat=40088 )

Topics will include what farmer Tsakoupolos was attempting to accomplish in plowing his land; why the federal government fined him; and what the implications of this legal battle are for farmers and environmentalists throughout the United States.

Listeners are invited to call the live program on KFRM, KSCO, KOMY, KGOE or KMPH with questions and comments at 800-624-2665.
