PROSPERITY WILL COME IF FARMERS CAN WORK THE LAND, ACTIVIST SAYS--Patrick Green of Lisbon, a beef rancher and Tea Party proponent told the North Country Regional Economic Development Council last month farmers need access to capital so they can take advantage of the "only real wealth the North Country has," the land. He says efforts are misdirected, that "tourism is a by-product of a strong economy," and that "academia is pushing people who don't want to put calluses on their hands." The council will be presenting its draft plan to the public Friday at 11 at SUNY Potsdam, with a comment period to follow. The event will be webcast at northcountryopenforbusiness.com
