“There’s a new cane price.  The price has improved.  As we know, the price on the world market has improved, has gone up and that, by extension, goes, I think it’s somewhere around fifty-seven or fifty-nine; I don’t have the exact number.  I got the letter just yesterday, but yes, the price has gone up and things are looking good for our farmers and I hope that we can continue going in that upward trend.”
