supreme champion animal exhibi
tor. There are times when you
could cry.
Jessica Stoltzfus had every rea
son to be upset after being stepped
on again by her grand champion
steer. So she cried. It was the sixth
time in two days the otherwise
gentle animal, weighing 1,305
pounds, wouldn’t behave.
Despite having to nurse a sore
right foot, Jessica stopped the tears
only to wipe away a few more
when she was honored the first
time for exhibiting the supreme

Walker Visits Lancaster, Chester Farms
Managing Editor
RONKS (Lancaster
Co.) U.S. Representative Bob
Walker visited farms in Lancaster
and Chester Counties Monday on
his annual tour to answer questions
from rural constituents.
The first morning stop was at the
farm of the Carl Landis family
where a dozen or more farmers sat
on straw bales in the front lawn to
hear Rep. Walkeranswerquestions
about NAFTA, GATT, taxes, reg
ulation reform, and the new farm
On the foreign trade issues.
Walker said NAFTA has had mix-

She liked it He didn’t.
But the pig that Heather picked
from the Michael Jasienski fami
ly’s farrow-to-finish hog opera
tion at Felton fulfilled her expec
tations. The 248-pound crossbred
bested 72 other contending pigs at
the York County Swine Roundup
to take home the champion honors
for the IS-year-old Red Lion High
School sophomore. The roundup
and sale were held August 13-14
at Weikert’s Buying Station.

ed success because of the collapse
of the Mexican peso. As Mexico
becomes more prosperous, we
have a better chance the NAFTA
agreement will be a very good plus
for the long term relationship.
As for GATT, Walker said this
agreement sets the stage for the
next century where global compet
ition is going to be an important
part of whether we will be a pros
perous nation or not.
The senator said parts of GATT
set up bureaucratic organizations
that he called “over-kill.” Never
less, he said you need a structure in
which to make global competition
work. With GATT we were able to

sale, bringingthe event’s top price

Heather raised a total of 14 head
this season.
Hatfield jumped back into the
spirited bidding for the reserve
champion, the Hamp-Duroc cross
bred exhibited by Tammi Grubb,
Hanover. The final bid was $1.75
for the 242-pound, runner-up win-

South Western High School and a

around the world. ‘To believe this
nation can get along without some
trade agreement and be isolated
from the rest of the world is just
completly outside of the realm of
reality,” Walker said. “We are the
world’s largest exporter even if we
have a trade imbalance. I believe
GATT gives us the possibility to
have a strong position in world
export markets.”
Walker said that while the way
we go about environmental regula
