South Central Farm Update:

There are reports from a number of sources that the farmers, with help from the Annenberg Foundation, have secured the $ 16.5 million dollars needed to buy the land.
But the developer, Horowitz, has not responded to the offer. It is unknown why he has not responded to the offer at this time.
Supporters of the farm are making direct appeals to the mayor's office to intercede & try to persuade Horowitz to take the offer.
There is also a move to appeal to Horowitz's faith by asking fellow members of his temple to show compassion for the plight of the farmers. It is hoped he will call off the sheriff's & return to the bargaining table.
