Country coverage needed


We in the hinterlands are being increasingly poorly served by High Country News.

Soil, food and water will become more critical to our nation’s health and security as we face the future. Consequently, we need fewer essays on effective protesting, or page after page devoted to metropolitan matters. HCN’s November issue was encouraging: Stories about insightful marketing by the Spokane-based Local Inland Northwest Cooperative, or LINC, and the Lazy R Ranch; preserving wildlife corridors; the Redwood Summer; and Sarah Keller’s experience out where the antelope stay are fodder of facts and inspiration to those of us seeing important cultural and economic challenges out here.

Please, please, please keep “Country” in High Country News. Otherwise, we would suggest changing HCN’s masthead while expecting canceled subscriptions, including ours.
