Nominations for torchbearers are open until January 31 and we are seeking nominees from all over Carroll County.
Please consider nominating as many individuals you feel are worthy of this great honor. There is a selection committee who will review the nominations and determine who will carry the torch on its journey through our county the afternoon of October 6.

Torchbearers will be Hoosiers, representing all walks of life. More than 1,800 torchbearers will be selected to carry the torch.

You might find this website interesting. http://www.gmoanswers.com is a place to ask your GMO-related questions and have them answered by independent experts (not paid by GMO Answers to answer questions).
The following information comes directly from the website:
Genetically modified organisms — GMOs — are a major topic of discussion today. Across our society, media and the Internet, a growing number of people have shared a wide range of questions and emotions on the topic – ranging from excitement and optimism to skepticism and even fear.
GMO Answers was created to do a better job answering your questions — no matter what they are — about GMOs. The biotech industry stands 100 percent behind the health and safety of the GM crops on the market today, but we acknowledge that we haven’t done the best job communicating about them – what they are, how they are made, what the safety data says.
Who Funds GMO Answers?
GMO Answers is funded by the members of The Council for Biotechnology Information, which includes BASF, Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont, Monsanto Company and Syngenta. The independent experts who answer consumer questions are not paid by GMO Answers to answer questions. Experts donate their time to answer questions in their area of expertise for the website. They do so because they are passionate about helping the public better understand GMOs and how our food is grown.
