"Grow Food, Not Lawns" will be presented at 7 p.m. January 31 by Taura. I.S.E. at the next Independent Scholars Evening at the Moline Commercial Club, 1530 5th Ave., Moline.

Gardening and food are common threads uniting all humankind. This Thursdays topic will motivate us so we grow seeds of positive change and take the health of our selves, our family, and our communities back into our own hands.


Taura will present the problem of the ridiculousness of this countries food system (unhealthy, costly, gmo, bad for the environment, ineffective) , and provide the remedy : Home gardens. Urban gardens. Local. permaculture. organic. natural. It is time to a 'back to basics' approach.


Taura strongly supports the idea that all the worlds ills can be cured in a garden. In previous war times in this country it was patriotic for every family to grow their own victory garden. Now it is almost illegal

Open discussion on the foods that can be grown locally as well as the details of planting will follow.


The evening will start with the Tibetan Singing Bowl and a short meditation to experience the power of sound vibrations.


"We don't need a law against McDonald's or a law against slaughterhouse abuse--we ask for too much salvation by legislation. All we need to do is empower individuals with the right philosophy and the right information to opt out en masse."
― Joel Salatin

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
