HU suffers 3-1 loss to Taylor

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Up against one of the most potent offenses in the league, the HU men’s soccer team (4-10-1, 1-4-1) battled to a 3-1 loss against Taylor University (10-4, 5-1) Wednesday night.

The Trojans’ offense, outscoring opponents two to one this season, wasted little time putting points on the board to build a 2-0 lead by halftime. Trojan senior Danny Cawley split a pair of defenders at the top of the box in the 10th minute to blast a shot near post to give his team the early lead. Five minutes before halftime Taylor struck again, this time on a restart at the foot of Rocky Byrd from 25 yards out.

“Taylor is extremely dangerous offensively,” stated Coach Russ Lawson. “They make you pay for your mistakes and that’s exactly what happened to us in the first half.”  

Despite giving up two goals in the period, Lawson felt like his squad generated some quality chances early on but wasn’t rewarded with a finish. “We had a handful of opportunities that we didn’t convert but I credit the boys for sticking with it.

“We made noted improvement as the game went on. I thought we held the ball longer and moved it in and out of pressure against a Taylor squad that in the past we really struggled with for possession.”

The Foresters came out of break to score within the first 30 seconds to send the message that they were back in the thick of it and weren’t going down without a fight. Ryan Pickup ripped a shot upper 90 at the 45:23 mark on a pass from Brooks Gerke to cut the deficit in half.

The next thirty minutes was a battle as both teams levied for control but in the 78th minute Devin Moore scored on a loose ball scramble inside the six to put the game out of reach.

James Couchman took the loss in goal. He finished with six saves.

It doesn’t get any easier for the Foresters as they hit the road again on Saturday to face #11 Indiana Wesleyan University at 7:00 p.m.



Foresters fall to Goshen 3-0

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, October 18th, 2014

The Goshen College Maple Leafs (11-9, 6-6) won in straight sets, 25-15, 25-19, 25-23, at Platt Arena Wednesday night to hand the Huntington volleyball team its tenth loss in conference play and complete the two-game sweep over Coach Settle and crew. GC handed HU a 3-0 loss in the Foresters’ season opener back on September 5.

With this loss, Huntington drops to 4-15 on the season, 2-10 in league play.

While the Foresters kept things relatively close throughout the first two sets, Goshen maintained a lead throughout except for three points at the start of the second set. The third set could have gone either way as it featured 13 ties and five lead changes before Goshen finally edged past its hosts.

Melanie Meyer paced the Maple Leafs by registering ten of her team’s 32 kills. GC finished with a .190 hitting percentage while HU registered a .078 hitting percentage behind eight kills from Brittany Rooze and Josie Beaver. Beaver along with Danielle Gurwell each tallied two blocks.

Emily Hubby and Annie Pizzo handed out 15 and ten assists respectively while Kate Cobb and Katie DePew posted similar numbers with 14 and 13 digs respectively.  

Goshen is currently sitting in 7th in the league standings while HU is in 9th. The Foresters have six league matches remaining to move up at least one spot in order to qualify for the Crossroads postseason tournament. 

HU travels to Grace College on Friday for a 7:00 p.m. match-up with the Lancers.



Beaver named to Big Guns Classic

By Lamont Neal
Monday, October 13th, 2014

Freshman middle blocker Josie Beaver had a big weekend at the St. Francis (IL) Big Guns Classic and for her efforts was one of six players to be named to the All-Tournament Team.

The rookie from Huntington North, currently ranked 5th in the nation in blocks per game (1.32), was her team’s spark plug at the net where she recorded 40 kills and 25 blocks over four matches.

Despite big numbers from Beaver, the injury-laden Forester volleyball team went winless over the weekend to drop to 4-14 on the season.

HU opened up with a 3-0 loss, 25-22, 25-17, 25-15, to Roosevelt University on Friday. Emily Hubby and Annie Pizzo dished out 15 and 14 assists respectively to pace a balanced attack that included ten kills from Beaver, nine from Brittany Rooze and eight from Danielle Gurwell. Katie DePew finished with 16 digs.

Against Missouri Valley later that night, the Foresters won the first set before the Vikings came charging back to win the next three for the win, 18-25, 27-25, 25-18, 25-14. Beaver finished with a career night of 14 kills and 11 blocks. Hubby and Pizzo combined for 31 assists while DePew racked up 27 more digs.

The Vikings logged ten serving aces but posted just as many errors while the Foresters also struggled with consistency behind the line where they tallied eight errors to three aces.

It was another 3-1 decision, 26-24, 25-11, 22-25, 25-22, on Saturday against Graceland with Rooze handling the bulk of HU’s offense with 13 kills and a .429 hitting percentage. Beaver added five kills to go along with seven blocks. Hubby dished out 13 assists while Pizzo handed out 11. DePew topped the team with 27 digs. Hitting errors plagued HU as they managed only 30 kills while committing 25 errors.

The Foresters wrapped up the classic with a 3-1 loss, 25-17, 25-16, 21-25, 25-18, to St. Francis. Beaver finished with a team-high 11 kills and five blocks. Audrey Mallers added seven kills as did Heather Medich. Medich also posted 11 digs. Pizzo and Hubby registered 17 and 11 assists respectively while DePew collected 20 digs.

Huntington jumps back into conference action on Wednesday when they host Goshen College at 7:00 p.m.



Vikings dominate Giants

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, October 12th, 2014

The concern of the Vikings travelling to Marion on Friday night was letting the Giants gain some confidence. They have some athletes and they have some speed but have struggled to have much success on the football field.

The first play of the game concerns came to light as the Giants Will Collins got outside and flew up the Giant sideline for a 65 yard touchdown run and before you could blink it was 7-0 Giants.. All concerns were erased on the following kickoff as Drew Fawcett would take the kickoff pick up a couple of blocks and split the coverage for a 86 yard kickoff return to tie it up 7-7 after the Alex McCutcheon extra point. The first play was about it for the evening for the Giant offense as the Viking defense would shut them down from there.

With the defense shutting down the Giant offense the Viking offense was exerting its will against the Giants defense. Adam Woods would break off a 54 yard touchdown run and Alex McCutcheon’s leg was just getting warmed up putting the Vikings up 14-7. After the Viking defense forced another three and out the Viking offensive line would take over as they pounded the ball down the field ending with a Carson Wright 4 yard touchdown run and the route was on 21-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter Alex Beal would get into the action with a 3 yard td run putting the Vikings up 28-7 and Adam Woods would rumble for another long run of 59 yards putting the Vikings up 35-7 as McCutcheon remained perfect on extra points.

In the third Jack Doughty would punch one in from 1 yard out and Adam Woods would get one more td with a 1 yard plunge so at the end of three quarters it was 49-7 and most of the starters had seen their last action.

The reserves picked up where the starters left off with Parker Thompson punching in a 2 yard run and Dakota Johnson connecting with Seth Thompson for a 28 yard touchdown pass to get us to the 63-7 final score.

Viking quarter back Lucas Long would go an efficient 5 of 7 for 55 yards but it was the Viking runners wo did all the damage. Adam Woods would pick up 187 yards on 12 carries and 3 touchdowns as the Viking runners would combine for 345 yards and 7 touchdowns behind a dominate performance of the offensive line.

After the first play the Vikings defense shut down the Giants with a total team effort allowing 40 yards rushing and 95 yards passing and shutting them out. Corbin Clarke led the Vikings with 9 tackles but was the only down side of the evening was Corbin being carted off the field with a leg injury.

The Vikings are now back to 4-4 overall and 4-2 in NCC play. Friday Night the Vikings will wrap up ther regular season as they host Lafayette Jeff.

Help Keep Catch Basins Clear

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, October 18th, 2014

With the coming cool weather and the falling of leaves, the City of Huntington Utilities would like to enlist the assistance of the property owners in keeping the city’s catch basins clear.
It is important to keep catch basins clear to prevent storm sewer blockages and minimize the amount of pollutants entering storm sewers which may eventually discharge into local streams and waterways. Clogged catch basins can also result in the ponding of water along streets and parking lots causing a nuisance to motorists, pedestrians and businesses.
How you can help:
When you are clearing your sidewalk or driveway, dispose of waste in trash receptacles instead of sweeping it into the street, gutters or catch basins.
If leaves or other debris are blocking a catch basin near your house or business, remove and dispose of the debris properly. In addition, during the winter months, try to maintain the openings to catch basins by clearing away any snow or ice.

Visiting Executive Seminar Oct. 24

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Huntington University will host a Visiting Executive Seminar on Oct. 24 to discuss the impact of the world’s changing demographics.

 

These seminars, held twice per year, invite business professionals to join students for a discussion on business issues that have a direct personal and economic effect on people’s everyday lives. Attendees are invited for breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by the program from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., both in the upper level of Habecker Dining Commons, and concluding with an optional lunch in the lower level of Habecker Dining Commons

 

Leading the seminar will be Jim O’Donnell, Executive-in-Residence, emeritus standing, as well as Troy Irick, assistant professor of business.

 

The event will explore two perspectives on demographics. The grimmer picture is painted by a review of a book by Jonathan Last, senior writer for the conservative Weekly Standard. He wrote, “What to Expect When No One is Expecting,” a sobering look at what he calls, “America’s coming demographic disaster.” The review was written by Bruce Thornton of The Hoover Institute at Stanford, as featured on the political website Real Clear Politics

 

The other article was authored by Michael Teitelbaum from Harvard University and Jay Winter from Yale University whose views are expressed in their recent book “The Global Spread of Fertility Decline.” Their work does little to refute the evidence of the world’s future demographic problems and instead claim people can live better lives today, less constrained by the “risks of marriage and the inconveniences of raising children.”

 

Attendance is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.

 

RSVP to Linda Schmitz at (260) 359-4042 or at lschmitz@huntington.edu.

 

Myers Funeral Home is serving as a sponsor for this event.

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.

Carroll to retire from Police Department

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, September 13th, 2014

The Police Chief of the Huntington Police Department, E.J. Carroll, announced his plan to retire from the Police Department effective October 1, 2014.  Chief Carroll, a 21-year veteran of the Huntington Police Department, has served as Chief of Police since 2012.

“It has been with great pleasure and pride that I have had the honor to serve the Huntington Police Department and the residents of Huntington for more than 21 years,” said Chief Carroll.  “I have been committed to this community as an officer appointed to uphold the law, but also as a citizen, giving back to the community.  While my role with the Police Department will come to an end, my commitment to this community will not.  I would also like to thank Mayor Fetters for allowing me the opportunity to lead the Huntington Police Department.”

Carroll has served the community as the D.A.R.E. officer for more than 20 years and previously served as the school resource officer for Huntington County Community School Corporation for 10 years.  Carroll began his career as a Deputy Marshal for the Town of Warren.  Following retirement, Carroll will join the newly formed Parkview Health Police Department as Deputy Chief of Parkview Huntington and Parkview Whitley Hospitals.

Huntington Mayor Brooks L. Fetters said, “I am sad that E.J. will be leaving the Huntington Police Department, but I am excited for him as he proceeds with this great opportunity. I am very proud of E.J. and his outstanding leadership as a member of the Huntington Police Department.  He has been at the forefront of his Department’s efforts to eradicate drug use and prevent crime all while tirelessly serving the citizens of this great City.  He is well respected by his peers and deeply appreciated by the citizens of Huntington.  I wish E.J. the best of luck as he travels down this new path.”

Fetters also stated, “I am I the process of interviewing several very qualified candidates to be the next Chief of Police of the Huntington Police Department.  I expect to make that appointment on or before October 1, 2014.”

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.
