Rural America is receiving a boost this year due to the Rural America tour that President Obama and Vice President Joseh Biden kicked off late last year. In this issue of Rural America Radio we refer to President Obama's visit to an Organic farm in Iowa, the week before last. We also refer to the upcoming National Rural Summit, June 3rd in Missouri, announced by Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, this week. Rural America Radio addresses technology and current affairs issues pertaining to rural communities across the US. Our focus in 2009-2010 is" Broadband for Rural Areas". We will interview guests, and bring you the most up-to-date information on progress being made in bridging the digital divide between urban/suburban and rural areas. We will also feature different topics of human interest, including agriculture, in remote and rural areas. Rural America Radio is hosted by Luisa Handem Piette, the Managing Director of RuMBA USA.
