No American president has been elected from a place quite like Hyde Park… Obama might as well live at the corner of Liberal and Kumbaya.

Every year in October, GreenStar raises money for the Howard Bowers Fund. We choose a day in Co-op Month, declare it Howard Bowers Day and urge shoppers to shop on that day because we donate one percent of our sales to the Howard Bowers Fund, plus whatever additional amount members are moved to donate.
Every year we get an overwhelming response — “Who is Howard Bowers?”

October is National Co-op Month, a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s co-ops. When I consider the positive influence cooperatives have on society, I’m reminded of the Seven Cooperative Principles. These principles are central to the operations of co-ops worldwide since they represent the core values that are recognized and adhered to by all cooperatives.
In the spirit of Co-op Month, I’d like to review the Seven Cooperative Principles to highlight how truly different the values-driven nature of cooperatives is relative to profit-driven corporate America. For this month’s column, we’ll review Principles #1 through #3. Next month we’ll complete our review with Principles #4 through #7.
