Jeff Stack of the Mid-Missouri Fellowship of Reconciliation talked about the “Troops Home Fast” being coordinated by the Columbia Peace Coalition. Some 40 local residents are participating in a “chain fast” through September 21 to protest America’s military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Then we welcomed Dr. Joe Kornegay, Dean of MU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Dr. George Stewart, Chair of Veterinary Pathobiology. They discussed a proposed Department of Homeland Security biohazard lab, the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF), that could be built in Columbia by 2013.
