By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Huntington University sophomore Miranda Palmer was named the Crossroads League Player of the Week for the week of December 15.

The 5-6 guard had a banner day on Saturday in HU’s 124-106 comeback win over #RV Olivet Nazarene University. There was no rest for the weary as Palmer played 39 minutes in a game that was more like a track meet than a basketball game.

She scored a record-breaking 48 points which included going 15-for-21 from the field and 17-for-21 from the charity stripe. She smashed the previous school record of 40 points held by Becky Stump and Cindy Schweikhardt.

The Foresters’ 124 points will also go down in the record books for most points scored in a game.

On the season, Palmer is averaging 22.2 points per game which places her 5th in NAIA Division II. She is shooting 88.2 percent from the free throw line, the 11th best percentage among her NAIA peers, and averages three 3-pointers per game for the 12th spot nationally. To date she has tallied 580 points for a career average of 13.2 ppg.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 16 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 222 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.

No. 21 MVNU Tops HU

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, December 7th, 2014

The No. 21 HU men’s basketball team (9-3, 1-2) came up one rebound short of logging their second league win Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena where they suffered a disappointing 56-55 loss to Mount Vernon Nazarene University (9-2, 2-1) on a buzzer-beating three by Martell Medley.

After a Derek Hinen trey at the midway point of the second period upped HU’s lead to 48-34, it looked like the Foresters were well on their way to keeping their unblemished record of 6-0 intact against MVNU since the Cougars joined the conference in 2011 but things slowly began to unravel for the hosts after that.

Over the next five minutes, Medley and crew limited Huntington to a single point while posting 13 points at the other end of the court to trim the lead to 49-47 with 5:03 remaining. The Cougars would go on to force the game’s first tie 90 seconds later but Daniel Woll and Kyle Pipenger each scored to build back a four-point advantage of 55-51 with just under two minutes remaining.

Each team came up empty on its next possession before Bryan Redic was hacked when he scored down low with 37 ticks remaining. The Foresters got the break they needed by getting fouled on the missed free throw but things didn’t work out as planned when Austin Clark missed the front end of his one-and-one opening the door to Medley’s heroics.

After whittling the clock to a handful of seconds, Julian Henderson’s three from the top of the key was off the mark to make for a mad scramble for the ball. Josh Ashwill came up with it and found a wide open Medley who drained his 13th three of the season with a second remaining to send the Cougar fans into a frenzy as HU wasn’t able to get a shot off in the game’s final possession.

Huntington had a solid first half which included shooting 54.2 percent from the field (13-for-24) while limiting Mount Vernon to 35.7 percent (10-for-28) and outrebounding their visitors 18-12 to take a comfortable 32-23 lead into intermission. But the tables turned in the final twenty minutes as it was the Cougars who shot 53.8 percent while HU struggled at 39.1 percent and got outrebounded 18-12.

HU finished the game 22-for-47 for 46.8 percent which included seven threes. MVNU went 24-for-54 for 44.4 percent and made two less triples than their hosts. Neither team got to the line very often but when they did, it wasn’t pretty as HU went 4-for-7 while the Cougars only connected on three of their six attempts.

Three Foresters landed in double digits with Tyler Ault leading the way with a season-high 13 points. Hinen chipped in 12 points to go along with a game-high seven assists. Woll added 11 points. Austin Clark finished with a game-best seven rebounds.

The Cougars were led by Medley’s 17 points. Redic and Jordi Mas posted 15 and 12 points respectively.

Huntington has a long break before hitting the hardwood again on December 20 to host Grace Bible College at 3:00 p.m.

HU to celebrate 60 years of Messiah

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Huntington University’s concert choir, along with a group of faithful community members, has been performing Handel’s Messiah for 60 years. All over the world, performances have been occurring annually since 1742.
What makes the Messiah such a rich tradition?
George Killian, chair of the music department at HU, says the Messiah performance is the best way to usher in the Christmas season. He emphasized the importance of community participation and attendance, saying HU’s free annual performance is “something we give to our community.” Killian has been conducting the Messiah at HU for 12 years and doesn’t see himself growing tired of it anytime soon.
This year’s performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Huntington, Ind., at 903 N. Jefferson St. All are welcome.
Sue Nunemaker, an HU alumna from Huntington, Ind., has been accompanying HU’s Messiah rehearsals and the annual performance on piano for 30 years. Still, she comes back each year with excitement to start up again.
“The music is just fabulous,” she said. “And it’s fun to work with the community, the college kids and the orchestra members. There are people I only see once a year for Messiah.”
She’s been through multiple directors, many students and various community members, but one thing never changes – God’s provision and direction for the Messiah concerts. Through multiple venues, Messiah has always had a place to be held.
The Messiah performance was held in the Zurcher Auditorium at HU for a while.
“We were the first public performance in the Merillat Centre, up in Zurcher Auditorium,” Nunemaker said.
A couple of years later, the auditorium grew too busy to host the event, and Nunemaker had to look for a new space.
“It was one or two days later that I got a call from a friend of mine who goes to St. Mary’s,” said Nunemaker. “She said, ‘Next year we’re celebrating the 100th anniversary of our building, and would you consider having Messiah in our church?’ It’s been a lot of direction from God.”
After a couple of years at St. Peter and St. Paul, the Messiah performance came back to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Huntington and has been there ever since.
“There’s no better place in Huntington to have the performance,” Nunemaker said.
Killian also enjoys that venue because of the aesthetics of the space and the rich sound quality from the acoustic design of the church. He said that better sound highlights the complexity of the music.
“It takes some vocal agility beyond the normal. It’s like vocal gymnastics,” he said.
Nunemaker agrees that the music is highly complex, saying that it took her a couple of years to master the piano accompaniment.
“There are parts that I still feel like I’m working on,” she said. “But after about 40 or so performances, I have it pretty well under my fingers at this point.”
For the audience, the Messiah performance is a chance to enjoy a scripturally-based introduction to the Christmas season as well as a musically compelling concert. Many families come with multiple generations, making this event a family tradition.

If you have ever considered the Catholic Church as your way of life, the RCIA may be for you.  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process whereby: 1) adults who wish to be baptized in the Catholic Faith and receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist, or 2) those who have been baptized into another Christian faith tradition and desire to become members of the Catholic Faith, or 3) those who have been baptized as Catholics and have not received the Sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation, are led through a series of instructions and prayer in a group setting.  Our weekly sessions will be held at Saint Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday evenings, beginning September 4th from 6-7:30 p.m. in Assumption Hall located at 903 N. Jefferson Street.  Please note that an initial interview of each person interested in RCIA should be completed prior to September 4th.  For more information, please contact Dan DeLaGrange at the Church Office at 356-4398.

4-H Enrollment Easier than Ever

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, December 7th, 2014

Indiana 4-H enrollment is now open in Huntington County through January 15, 2015. 4-H is a premier source of enjoyable, educational programs to help young people reach their full potential. Plus, new for 2015, enrollment is easier than ever with the 4-H Online system, https://in.4honline.com.

Indiana 4-H is the state’s largest youth development program for grades 3-12, reaching over 200,000 youth in all 92 counties. 4-H Youth Development Educators in each Purdue Extension county office coordinate local activities.

In Huntington County, approved adult volunteers teach young people specific skills related to a wide variety of subjects through hands-on, experiential learning. Youth also develop leadership and citizenship skills by participating in one of 34 organized 4-H Clubs. Subjects include: science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); agriculture; citizenship; healthy living; art; consumer and family sciences; and more. In 2013, a Tufts University study showed that 4-H members also excel in positive youth development areas compared to peers, including:

•         Four times more likely to contribute to their communities (grades 7-12)
•         Two times more likely to make healthier choices (grade 7)
•         Two times more likely to be civically active (grades 8-12)

Should You Be a "Hands-on" Investor?

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, July 20th, 2014

If you want to send your children or grandchildren to college, retire comfortably and achieve other important life goals, you will have to invest — it’s that simple. But the process of investing can sometimes seem anything but simple. What can you do to gain confidence that you are making the right investment moves?
The answer may depend on how involved you want to be with your investment decisions. Initially, you might think that you would like to be totally “hands on.” After all, how you save and invest your money is unquestionably a highly personal matter. And once you start exploring the investment world, you may find it fascinating, as it entails virtually every human endeavor imaginable: business, politics, science, the environment, and so on. But if you want to completely run your own show, you will need to put in a lot of work — such as studying the financial markets, staying up-to-date on changing investment environments and monitoring your portfolio to make sure it is still appropriate for your financial needs and goals.
Most people find that they do not have the time or expertise to manage this investment process on their own, which is why they turn to professional financial advisors. The key advantage in working with an advisor is that he or she knows your risk tolerance, goals and family situation, and can help you create a personalized, long-term investment strategy. A good financial advisor will communicate with you regularly and make recommendations. A financial advisor can offer you a variety of strategies and types of investments — such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds — to help you work toward your goals. Ultimately, though, you will be the one to make the “buy” or “sell” decisions.
Some investors prefer to leave even the buy-and-sell decisions to professionals. Most financial advisors offer advisory programs that take care of this for you. With these programs, you choose a professionally managed portfolio of investments. The programs typically offer a wide range of portfolios, so you can choose one that`s appropriate based on your needs, goals and risk tolerance. Each portfolio contains a broad range of investments that are selected by professional analysts and represent a variety of asset classes. Advisory programs also offer a sophisticated rebalancing process designed to keep your assets allocated appropriately, which can help keep you on track toward your specific financial goals.
Whether you choose to make your own decisions in consultation with a financial advisor or to invest in an advisory program — or both — you really should learn as much as possible about your investments. Whichever method you decide is best for you, remember that investing involves risk, and investment performance is never guaranteed. So make sure you’re asking the right questions, such as: What are the risk characteristics? How has a particular investment vehicle performed relative to others in its category? What are the tax implications of owning and selling a specific investment vehicle? What are the costs and fees associated with each choice?
            As you may have heard many times, knowledge is power — and that’s certainly true in the investment arena.

Women Must Know What to Expect

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Everyone needs to be aware of the financial resources they will have available in retirement. But if you’re a woman, you must be particularly diligent, for a variety of reasons. And that means you’ll need to know just what to expect from Social Security.
            Why should you, as a woman, pay extra attention to Social Security? For one thing, women often take time off from their careers to care for children and older parents, so they may accumulate less money in employer-sponsored retirement accounts, such as 401(k) plans. And women still live several years longer than men, according to the Census Bureau.
Clearly, then, you need to get the most you can from Social Security. To do so, you will need to consider at least three key factors:
            • Age — You can start taking retirement benefits as early as 62, but your benefits may be reduced by up to 30% unless you wait until your “full retirement age,” which is likely 66 or 67. If you delay taking benefits until 70, your monthly benefits may be up to a third larger than if you started collecting Social Security at your full retirement age. You’ll need to weigh a variety of factors — such as family longevity, income from employer-sponsored retirement plans and your anticipated financial needs — in determining when you should start taking Social Security.
• Employment — If you work while receiving Social Security benefits before you reach full retirement age, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $2 you earn over an annual limit, which generally increases each year. In the year you reach full retirement age, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $3 you earn over the limit before your birthday. But once you reach full retirement age, your benefits will no longer be adjusted for earned income.
• Marital status — As a spouse, you can generally receive Social Security payments based on your own earnings record or collect a spousal benefit of up to 50% of your husband`s Social Security benefit. The benefit will be reduced if you start taking it before your full retirement age. To start collecting Social Security spousal benefits, you must be at least 62 years old and your husband must also have filed for his own benefits. If you’re divorced, and you’re not currently married, you can generally receive benefits on your ex-husband’s Social Security record, as long as you meet certain conditions. (For example, you had to have been married to your ex-husband for at least 10 years.)
            No matter how much Social Security you ultimately receive, it’s almost certainly not going to be enough to provide all the income you’ll need. So during your working years, try to contribute as much as you can, for as long as you can, to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. At the same time, look for other investment opportunities. And when you reach retirement, create a withdrawal strategy that allows you to stretch out the income you receive from your investments for as long as you can. 
            By saving and investing as much as possible during your working years, maximizing your Social Security payments and carefully managing your financial assets when you’re retired, you can help improve your chances of enjoying the retirement lifestyle you deserve. 
 
This information is believed to be reliable, but investors should rely on information from the Social Security Administration before making a decision on when to take Social Security benefits. It is general information and not meant to cover all scenarios. Your situation may be different, so be sure to discuss this with the Social Security Administration prior to taking benefits.

Could You Afford to Live to 100?

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Here’s an interesting statistic: Over the past three decades, the centenarian population in the United States has grown about 66%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a good chance of living to 100 — but the possibility may not be as remote as it once was. In any case, if you do plan to retire in your mid-60s, and you are in good health, you may well have two, or even three, decades ahead of you. To enjoy this time to the fullest — and to help prevent the possibility of outliving your financial resources — you will need to invest for income and growth throughout your retirement years.
            As a retiree, how much income do you need from your investments? There’s no one “right”
percentage for everyone. Furthermore, you shouldn’t have to rely solely on your investment portfolio, because you may have other sources — such as Social Security and potentially your employer-sponsored retirement plan — from which to draw income. Nonetheless, your investments can play a big role in providing you with the income you’ll need during retirement.
             Many retirees depend on fixed-rate investments for a good portion of their retirement income — so it’s a real challenge when interest rates are low, as they have been for the past several years. Consequently, when you retire, you’ll certainly need to be aware of the interest-rate environment and the income you can expect from these investments. Longer-term fixed-rate vehicles may be tempting, as they typically offer higher rates than shorter-term ones, but these longer-term investments may have more price fluctuation and inflation risk than shorter-term investments. Ultimately, you’ll likely need a balance between short-, intermediate- and long-term fixed-income investments to provide for a portion of your income in retirement.
            While it’s important to invest for income, you can’t ignore the need for growth — because you won’t want to lose purchasing power to inflation. As you know, we’ve experienced quite mild inflation recently. But over time, even a low rate of inflation can seriously erode your purchasing power. To illustrate: If your current monthly costs are $3,000, they will be about $4,000 in 10 years with only a 3% annual inflation rate. And in 25 years at that same rate, your monthly costs will have more than doubled, to about $6,200. To help protect yourself against inflation risk, you should consider having at least some investments that offer growth potential, rather than only owning fixed-income vehicles. And some investment vehicles, such as dividend-paying stocks, can offer both growth potential and current income. In fact, some stocks have paid, and even increased, their dividends for many years in a row, giving you not just income, but rising income. (Keep in mind, though, that companies are not obligated to pay dividends, and can reduce or discontinue them at any time.)
            To determine the right mix of growth and income vehicles for your individual needs, consult with a financial advisor who is familiar with your retirement plans, your risk tolerance and your family situation. And it may well be a good idea to plan for a very long retirement. You may not live to be 100 — but it would be a good feeling to know that you could afford to do so.

Watch for Risk of Muni

By Lamont Neal
Friday, June 6th, 2014

Are you thinking of investing in municipal bonds? If so, you may have good reason, particularly if you are in one of the higher tax brackets. After all, municipal bond interest payments typically are exempt from federal income taxes, and possibly state and local income taxes, too — although some “munis” are subject to the alternative minimum tax. However, since not all municipal bonds are the same, you’ll want to know the differences — especially in terms of risk.
            Municipal bonds, like corporate bonds, essentially face two types of risk: interest rate risk and default risk. Interest rate risk becomes clear when market interest rates rise, causing the value of your existing municipal bonds to fall. No one will pay you full price for your bonds when newly issued bonds carry a higher rate — so if you plan on selling bonds before they mature, you risk losing principal. You can largely ignore this type of risk simply by holding your bonds until maturity, at which point you will receive the face value back, provided the issuer doesn’t default.
            And that brings us to the second type of risk: default risk. Historically, municipal bond default rates have been much lower than those of corporate bonds, particularly lower-quality bonds. But different types of municipal bonds carry different levels of default risk. Here’s a quick look at the two main categories of municipals and their risk characteristics:
                • General obligation bonds — General obligation bonds generally finance projects of a municipality. A general obligation bond issuer is required to do everything in its power, including raising new taxes, to ensure that interest payments are paid on time and in full. This requirement helps support the creditworthiness of general obligation bonds.
• Revenue bonds — Revenue bonds, which finance schools, hospitals, utilities, airports, affordable housing and other public works, are paid by dedicated streams of revenue. For example, revenues generated by the sewer system pay the interest on a sewer system revenue bond. Because revenue bonds have more restricted revenue streams than general obligation bonds, they are generally viewed to be riskier. To compensate for the added risk, revenue bonds usually pay a higher rate of interest than general obligation bonds.
When studying the risk factors of revenue bonds, you also have to consider the type of revenue bond involved. For example, some sectors, such as housing and health care, may be more volatile, as are some industrial revenue bonds. (These bonds, which are generally used to support a specific project, such as a new manufacturing facility, are sponsored by a government entity — but the proceeds go to a private, for-profit business.)
Of course, when evaluating the risk potential of municipal bonds, you don’t have to rely on guesswork. The major bond rating agencies — Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch — review municipal bonds to determine their creditworthiness. There are no guarantees, but by sticking with the bonds that are “investment grade,” you can help reduce the risk of owning a bond that goes into default.
Municipal bonds can be valuable additions to your portfolio. Besides providing income that’s free of federal taxes, these bonds offer you a chance to help support valuable projects in your community. But, as we’ve seen, different “munis” have different risk factors — so make sure you know exactly what type of bond you’re purchasing before you write the check.

Free Yourself from Emotional Investing

By Lamont Neal
Friday, May 23rd, 2014

            In many areas of your life, you’re probably aware that it’s useful to keep emotions out of your decision-making — and that’s certainly the case with investing. However, it can be difficult to keep your feelings from influencing your investment decisions. But you may find it easier to invest with your head, rather than your heart, if you know a little something about two different cycles: the market cycle and your emotional cycle. 
            Let’s start with the market cycle. If you’ve been investing for a while, you’re aware (probably highly aware) that the financial markets are rarely static — they are always moving up and down, at least in the short term. (Over the very long term, a period of many decades, the markets have trended up.) But these short-term movements, while perhaps appearing as “zigs” and “zags” on a daily basis, actually form a pattern, or a cycle, that can last for months or years. These cycles are known as bull (up) or bear (down) markets. Going back to the Great Depression, the average bear market has lasted 21 months, while the average bull market has extended for 57 months, according to research from Standard and Poor’s Index Services.
            These market cycles greatly influence investors’ attitudes and behavior. In fact, they lead to the formation of investors’ emotional cycles. During bull markets, investors tend to feel optimism, excitement and even euphoria. But once a bull market ends and a bear market begins, investors start getting nervous. And the longer and deeper the bear market, the greater the depth of emotion felt by investors. These emotions can begin as anxiety and then progress to denial, fear, desperation and panic.
            Furthermore, market cycles and emotional cycles don’t really align. For example, investors may well experience euphoria when the market has reached its high point and a bear market has just begun. For a while, then, these investors, fueled by their euphoric feelings over the big gains they’ve achieved, may continue pouring money into the market, even as it’s declining. This type of behavior, though, is probably better suited for when the market is already at a low, when investors’ dollars will buy more shares. Conversely, investors may reach the peak of their fearfulness at the end of a bear market, just when things are about to turn around. At this point, their fear may hold them back from investing — even though, with prices low, it can be a good time to invest. Clearly, basing investment decisions on emotions can lead to poor choices.
            So don’t get caught up in this pattern. Instead, strive to follow a disciplined approach to investing. Build an investment portfolio that reflects your objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon, and seek to hold appropriate investments for the long term. Of course, you may well need to make adjustments along the way, but do it for the right reasons — such as a change in your goals or in the investments themselves — rather than as a reaction to the current market cycle.
            Our emotions are powerful, and their power can increase when applied to such a meaningful aspect of our life as our finances. But if you can detach yourself, as much as possible, from the emotional cycle of investing, you can avoid considerable angst — while helping clear the path to pursue your goals.

Leonard congratulates schools

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, December 13th, 2014

State Representative Dan Leonard (R-Huntington) congratulates several local schools that were awarded teacher performance grants by the state. For the first time in Indiana history, grants will be presented to teachers rated either effective or highly effective as a bonus.

“I want to congratulate our local teachers for their hard work and also the parents for their commitment to the future of their children,” said Rep. Leonard. “It is evident that the young people in our communities are being taught by some of the best educators in the state, and they should be rewarded for all their hard work.”

The following list includes the school corporations that received teacher performance grants in House District 50:

• Fort Wayne Community Schools:  $564,672.16
• M.S.D. Southwest Allen County:  $370,142.98
• Huntington County Community Schools:  $178,135.82
• Northern Wells Community Schools:  $81,592.45
• Southern Wells Community Schools:  $21,243.74

Through House Enrolled Act 1001, which is the biennial budget that passed in 2013, a total of $30 million was allocated in teacher performance grants. The amounts awarded to qualifying schools were based on a combination of ISTEP+ and End-of-Course Assessment passing rates per pupil as well as graduation rates per pupil.

“Education is a cornerstone to a child’s success in the future. As our teachers develop and help mold tomorrow’s leaders, those who go above and beyond should be rewarded and commended for their outstanding efforts,” said Rep. Leonard.

PENALTY DUE ON DELINQUENT PROPERTY TAXES

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Indiana Law (IC 6-1.1-37-10) requires the County Treasurer to add a late payment penalty to the unpaid portions of the amounts due for each installment of Property taxes.  The penalty will be in the amount of 5% of the unpaid tax if the installment is completely paid on or before the 30 days after the due date and you are not liable for delinquent property taxes first due and payable in a previous installment for the same parcel.  The last day to pay with a 5% penalty will be Dec. 10, 2014. Delinquent payments must be paid in the Treasurer’s office or sent by mail and must be post marked no later than December 10th 2014 to receive the 5% penalty. If taxes are due for more than the 2nd Installment of this year then the penalty will be in the amount of 10% of the unpaid tax.

Snyder Calls on Pence

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Gary Snyder, Huntington County Community School Board District 2 candidate, is calling for Governor Mike Pence to reconsider his decision not to apply for up to $80 million in federal funding to expand access to early education for low-income Hoosier families, including children in Huntington.  Snyder is also challenging his opponents to join him in this request.
 
“I would call on Governor Pence to reconsider his decision not to apply for up to $80 million in federal funding for early childhood education and I would challenge my opponents to join me in this request,” Snyder said.  “My concern is that by not pursuing these funds, low-income families in the Huntington County Community School Corporation, and across the state, will not have access to high-level pre-K programs,” Snyder added.

Income and wealth gap

By Lamont Neal
Monday, September 8th, 2014

Editor,

We have heard a lot recently about the income and wealth gap.  Why should we be concerned? 
For one thing, as the Standard & Poor’s recent analysis points out, the inequality has slowed the 5 year recovery from the recession.
Also we pride ourselves on being the land of opportunity.  Capitalism has its strengths, but anyone who is familiar with the game Monopoly knows that if the game starts with one person owning all the properties, the game is over before it started. According to Oxfam, 1% of the world’s population controls $110 Trillion, 65 times the total wealth of the poorest half of the world`s population (3.5 billion people).
The estate tax has historically provided a counter weight to this tendency to concentrate the wealth in a few individuals, but we have politicians today who have eviscerated that tax and would do away with it, calling it a “death tax”.
A number of millionaires and billionaires recently signed a petition asking congress not to repeal the estate tax.  They recognized that they would not have been able to acquire the wealth they did without the infrastructure and amenities developed by the common efforts of those who went before.  They understood that it is only fair to pass it on to the society that treated them so well.
President Obama, in an attempt to deal with the income gap, has called for a national minimum wage of $10.10 an hour.  The recent call from fast food workers for $15.00 is closer to what is needed.  The 13 states that raised their minimum wage at the start of this year have added jobs at a faster pace than those that did not.  Raising wages improves employee’s morale, productivity and customer service.  When families have more money in their pockets they pump it back into their local economies.  If you work hard and play by the rules you shouldn’t have to raise your family in poverty.
Are your legislators voting for a higher minimum wage, a fair estate tax and doing away with loopholes that let wealthy CEO’s pay taxes at a lower rate than their underpaid employees?
If not, maybe it is time to elect someone who will represent all Americans, not just the 1% that pay for their campaigns.

The topics included the negative effects on the city and county residents if the annexation is passed. These negative effects include higher taxes to cover the costs of added infrastructure, the loss of revenues to the School Corporation and public library, and higher utility rates.

For more information, visit the City of Huntington’s website at  www.huntington.in.us , type “Annexation” in the search area then select  City of Huntington Annexation Plan 2014-2021. In addition to this report, type “Comprehensive Plan” in the search area, select  City of Huntington 2012 Comprehensive Plan  and scroll to pages 71-85 for further aspects of the annexation plan developed back in September of 2012.

The public is encouraged to voice their opinions about the annexation plan by contacting the City Council Members who will be voting yes or no to continue with Annexation.  City Council Members include: Charles Chapman, District 1, 260.359.3469, Paul Pike, District 2, 260.358.0763, Jim Long, District 3, 260.356.4682, Wayne Powell, District 4, 260.356.4934, Joe Blomeke, District 5, 260.356.6912, Greg Davis, At Large, 260.519.2223 and Jack Slusser, At Large, 260.356.4755. Mayor Brooks Fetters may be reached at 260-356-1400 x212, as well.

A Special Meeting and Public Hearing is scheduled for June 3, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers located at the Huntington City Building that citizens of Huntington City and County are urged to attend and voice their opinions.

The public is also invited to attend the next meeting against the forced annexation on Tuesday, May 6th at 6:30 pm at 6864 Stults Rd (6864N – 200W).  “LIKE ” the group’s Facebook Page Huntington Annexation to follow the latest information.
