Concern over Agenda 21

By Doug Rich

Andrea (Andy) Hutchison said she has had enough of trying to deal with animal rights activists and environmentalists. The Oklahoma rancher said these groups can never be satisfied. Enough is never enough and they will just keep asking for more until private property rights are things of the past, according to Hutchison. (Journal photo by Doug Rich.) As her children and grandchildren filter through the office at the Chain Land and Cattle Company on this bright spring morning, Andrea (Andy) Hutchison looks more like the proud mother and grandmother she is than the agricultural activist she has become. Some of the kids come to see what their job is for the day and others are looking for the home-baked goodies sitting next to the coffee pot on the shelf.
