    Our guests will be, Matt Perdue, Government Relations Representative with National Farmers Union and MFU President Alan Merrill, speaking on the Farm Bill and other Ag related topics.

    We believe in the benefits of a general farm organization, which bridges the divisions between commodities and spans the geographic diversity of the agricultural industry. Such a structure gives opportunity for all its members to participate in the processes of our society through the presence of a strong national organization. When buttressed by effective state organizations, which in turn find their strength in local and area “grassroots” alignments, the impact is most effective.

    While the Farmers Union is non-partisan and does not endorse candidates or provide financial support, members are encouraged to participate in the activities of the political party of their choice.

    To be an effective force, members must be involved in the organization. Such involvement demands communication and motivational focus from its leadership in order to accomplish its goals, to develop the talents of the membership and to foster feelings of self-worth as individuals and as a group.

    Westmoreland Coal Company (Nasdaq:WLB) today announced that it has promoted Joseph E. Micheletti to Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Micheletti joined Westmoreland in 1998 and has held various positions of increasing responsibility including, most recently, Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer. During his nearly 20 years with Westmoreland, Mr. Micheletti has also served as Senior Vice President of Coal Operations and has led the company’s production, maintenance, processing, and engineering functions. Mr. Micheletti also proudly serves as a director of the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute.

    “This is a well-deserved promotion for Joe, who has been essential to Westmoreland’s success,” said Kevin Paprzycki, Westmoreland’s Chief Executive Officer. “Joe has extensive experience and an outstanding track record as a leader at Westmoreland during the last two decades. He has led the teams responsible for over-achieving our expectations on the acquisitions we have made in the past several years.”

    Mr. Micheletti replaces Westmoreland’s former President and Chief Operating Officer, John Schadan. Paprzycki said, “I am thankful to John for his contributions to Westmoreland and wish him well as he pursues other opportunities.”

    Separately, the board has engaged Jeffrey S. Stein to serve as Chief Investment Officer to help lead shareholder value initiatives. Mr. Stein will continue serving on Westmoreland’s board of directors, a position as he has held since August 2016. Mr. Stein is the Founder and remains the Managing Partner of Stein Advisors LLC, a financial advisory firm that provides consulting services to institutional investors.

    “Jeffrey’s significant capital markets expertise and his depth of understanding of capital allocation and structure makes him the ideal candidate to serve as our Chief Investment Officer,” said Jan B. Packwood, Chairman of the Board of Westmoreland. “We are confident in his ability to lead our efforts as we seek to optimize Westmoreland’s capital structure and maximize shareholder value.”

    Many of the top Western writers will gather at the Double-Tree Hotel on June 20-23 when Western Writers of America celebrates its 65th anniversary convention.

    Roughly 200 writers of all forms — fiction, nonfiction, poetry, songs and screenplays — editors and literary agents are expected to attend sessions on Western history and publishing trends. Nonmembers are welcome, and day registrations are available.

    “The Literature of the West is steeped in the rich traditions of storytellers like our 2018 Wister Award Winner Rudolfo Anaya and Hall of Fame inductee Paul Horgan,” said Western Writers of America Executive Director Candy Moulton. “We embrace all writing about the American West.” Highlights include a live and silent-auction for the organization’s Homestead Foundation, a keynote address by Pete Simpson and the annual Spur Awards banquet. The writers also will visit many area attractions including Chief Plenty Coup State Park near Pryor and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and McCracken Research Library, which houses the Western Writers Hall of Fame, in Cody.

    The program includes sessions with editors and agents, presentations about the battle of the Little Bighorn, bison on the Plains, Montana literary traditions, and “Personifying Longmire” a session focused on the hit television series, Longmire, which is based on a series of novels written by Craig Johnson, who currently serves as a member of the WWA Board of Directors. The panel will include Johnson, A Martinez, who plays the character Jacob Nighthorse on the show, and Marcus Red Thunder, a technical advisor on the show. The session will be moderated by WWA President Kirk Ellis, an Emmy Award winning screenwriter.

    WWA was founded in 1953 and held its first convention in Denver in 1954. From its beginnings as a small group of mostly novelists it has grown to nearly 700 members, including Will Bagley, Sandra Dallas, Michael McGarrity, Nancy Plain, David Morrell, Anne Hillerman, Lucia St. Clair Robson, W. Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear, Kat Martin, and C. J. Box.

    Since 1953, WWA has promoted and honored the best in Western literature with the annual Spur Awards, which are given for works whose inspiration, image, and literary excellence best represent the reality and spirit of the American West. This year’s winners include novelists David Osborne (“The Coming”) and Jeff Guinn (“Silver City”)

    and historian David Grann (“Killers of the Flower Moon”).

    New Mexico journalist Ollie Reed Jr., will be honored with WWA’s Branding Iron Award, given for outstanding service to the organization. The McCracken Research Library will be recognized with the John M. Cleary Homestead Honoree Award for outstanding support to Western Writers of America and the literature of the American West. The Arthur H. Clark Company will receive the Lariat Award for its extensive reputation in publishing Western Literature.

    WWA moves its convention each year. Next year’s convention will be held in Tucson, Arizona. For more information, log on to www.westernwriters.org, or email: wwa.moulton@gmail.com.

    Western Landowners Alliance is a West-wide organization established by landowners to improve the ecological health and economic prosperity of working lands in the American West.

    • Our mission is to advance policies and practices that sustain working lands, connected landscapes and native species.
    • At WLA, we envision a future where our land and water, private and leased, delivers increased agricultural production and profitability, thriving wildlife populations, vital water supplies and other important natural resources.
      • For example, private lands provide habitat for a high percentage of threatened and endangered species. Let’s EMPOWER and SUPPORT landowners to do good work, rather than respond to good work with increased restrictions (e.g. ESA – good stewardship = increased habitat = renewed presence of threatened species = restrictions)
    • We currently have offices and staff in Montana, Colorado and New Mexico.
