People don’t move to Schoharie County to find a job. There aren’t any.
It’s a priceless place to settle, but bring your own support system.
Those who have come here come here for other reasons.
Our neighbors perform on Broadway, in films, are published authors, visual artists and composers and make priceless objects for movies. They maintain historic buildings, museums and homes. They have built restaurants, bakeries, shops, lodging and the fastest-growing lifestyle brand in the country.
Those spectacularly beautiful sculptures in the vast lobbies of JFK International Airport? — they were created and produced by a neighbor down the road.
One of the most amazing recent treasures is a project by a retired teacher with two master’s degrees, now a food producer, who has researched what she regards as a primary danger to our civilization.
No tinfoil hats, just science and research papers studied over many years, and compiled into an accessible publication that all can read and understand.
When I first read it, I was overwhelmed by the amount of scientific information concentrated in its small, clear format.
Books have been written that aren’t as informative as this piece.
Making published research understandable takes a very special interpreter, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that a teacher undertook this project. I think it succeeds.

Hundreds of studies are cited, and the science is available to confirm.
This pamphlet is both enlightening and dangerous.
The major international corporations responsible for this desecration will not be neutral in their response. We have watched that already, like the tobacco companies who gave sworn testimony that nicotine does not cause disease and is not addictive. We saw how accurate that was.
So why are the corporations doing this? Why would they destroy our food, our bodies, our land? Where do they think they will live?
Perhaps, at last, the love of money truly is the root of all evil.
Alerting the public to dangers is not enough, so this publication suggests many alternative actions for you to do to protect yourself, your children and your environment. The piece is now published, and is available online.
