EXCHANGE-DELIVERING BABIES WORLDWIDE
LA CROSSE, Wis. — Liza Ramlow has been delivering babies for about five decades as a professional midwife, but the birth of baby Mercy was like no other. Delivered on the MV Aquarius in the Mediterranean Sea, the healthy baby girl was something of a miracle, her mother, Taiwo, having come aboard just 36 hours before giving birth, fleeing brutal violence in Libya. Ramlow, administering care on the Aquarius on assignment with Doctors Without Borders, was at Taiwo's side for the duration of the labor. By Emily Pyrek, La Crosse Tribune. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1476 words.
EXCHANGE-COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
MILWAUKEE — Tim Huth loads up his truck with vegetables, meat and other food twice a week and drives it to two distribution sites in the Milwaukee area. There, members of his organic community-supported agriculture farm in the town of Sugar Creek visit the truck to grab groceries. His choice program isn't a free food pantry. Customers have to buy a membership plan at the beginning of the season. His program is designed to maximize flexibility at a time when this model of agriculture is struggling to retain customers. By Jim Dayton, The Janesville Gazette. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1255 words, photos.
