I am a specialist food designer and working for rice designs for USA based company. I design campaign for wholesale rice companies. Promote their Products by using my art. Please check my art work here ... Meanwhile, the Agricultural Council of Arkansas' Twitter article last Friday night characterised Dick Bell rather respectfully:"wonderful guy, wonderful wisdom, amazing leader" Check my design work on below link for details
I really shocked because of Dick's death last week brought to a close a life of much accomplishment, perhaps not only for that rice market design works-- where to get
almost three decades he led Riceland food items while the planet's largest rice miller and among the region's largest processors
of noodles -- in the broader arena of national and international agricultural coverage.
Even though he functioned for years in bureaucratic circles -- as a agricultural economist with the USDA's Foreign Agricultural
services, since a helper agricultural attaché in Ottawa and Brussels, as A G attaché for its American Embassy at Dublin, and as
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture for International Affairs and Commodity Programs -- he had been un-bureaucratic when possible
can ask for.
He'd a knowledge of agricultural economics and policy that appeared on encyclopedic, also could more than hold their own members
of Congress or Capitol Hill leaders,'' but he'd a marvelous (and enviable) bent for distilling the brain-numbing minutiae of
administration programs and policy to terminology exactly the typical person might comprehend.
Although Dick was a"Yankee" by birth (Illinois), also he never really dropped his accent during his decades in Arkansas, he was
the only real southern gentleman: gracious, softspoken, usually showing a keen curiosity about people with whom he cried.
I crossed paths with him regularly through time, at one meeting or some other, also he also would make it a point to come and talk
together and other members of social media, without matter that of our Farm Press editors was covering his comments, he would, a
twinkle in his eyes, be capable of work at a benchmark throughout his conversation into something we'd written, as though he
followed our scribblings religiously. He endeared himself into those of those media by consistently making himself available when
we needed information or cogent comments about ag markets or policy.
Much has been written about Dick's careers with USDA/FAS, together with Riceland Foods, and after that immediately after his
retirementas Arkansas' earliest Agriculture Secretary. Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, who made him on this article, mentioned
following his death"Together with his enormous understanding of the whole agricultural scene, and the esteem he made from everyone
at the agri-world,'' there wasn't any one I really could consider that was suited for the job. He was a hardworking, educated, and
effective public slave ."
In a age when government and government service are often reviled, Dick might, I think, have liked a tag: strong community
U.S. rice along with U.S. farming will be the better due to his lifetime of support, and on his passing can remember with
gratitude his most gifts.
