WOMEN`S BASKETBALL
The Huntington University women`s basketball team dropped a conference road game to the #11 Marian University Knights, 65-75, on Saturday afternoon.  The game tipped-off the second half of Crossroads League regular season play.

With the win, Marian completes the two-game season sweep over HU, who drops to 14-6 overall and 5-5 in conference matchups.

The #20 Foresters entered the game coming off an impressive upset of the #7 Saint Francis Cougars, and the competition level didn’t get any easier as they faced an athletic and talented Marian squad.

Huntington opened the game with a basket from Kelsey Hubble to take an early 2-0 advantage, which would be their only lead of the contest as the Knights dominated the first frame on both ends of the court.

The Foresters` backcourt had to battle being face-guarded and shot just 39-percent from the field in the first half. However, the Knights, who boast the second-best field goal percent in NAIA Division II (48.5%), posted a remarkable 56-percent from the field.

Marian`s stifling defense forced eight first-half Forester turnovers of which they converted seven of them for 14 points.

 

HU maintained a single-digit deficit until the halfway mark of the period. Six Knights scored in the last ten minutes, however, to help send the hosts to the locker room with a 16-point advantage.

 

Marian`s Hasser-Smith nailed a three to start the second half, but the Foresters soon began chipping away at the Knights` lead. Junior Kelsey Hubble scored 10 of her 16 points in the second half as she spearheaded the Foresters` main surge. In a two-minute span, Hubble knocked down back-to-back treys to bring her team within nine.

Amelia Recker, Amelia Echemann, Hubble, and Allyson Trout each scored in HU`s following possessions to shrink the deficit to six. However, Hasser-Smith silenced the Foresters` comeback by connecting on back-to-back triples of her own to double her team`s lead. The Foresters continued to fight on both ends of the court but weren`t able to cut the margin to single digits the rest of the game.

Though Huntington outscored their opponents 39-33 in second half, they struggled to overcome a poor first half thanks in large part to the defensive efforts of Marian.

The Blue and Gold held HU`s two top scorers, Miranda Palmer and Recker, to a combined 15 points, nine of which came from the free-throw line. Marian also won the rebounding battle, 36-29.

Courtney Baker led the Foresters with a season-high 17 points. Baker and Jaclene Bonnema each collected 7 rebounds. Bonnema also had a season-high 4 blocks.

Hasser-Smith finished with 25 points to guide the Knights, while Faith Reece and Jessica Almeida chipped in 12 and 11 respectively. 

The loss nearly evens the two teams` series record on Marian`s home court, as the Foresters now have a slight 15-14 advantage.

With nearly half of conference play remaining, the Foresters sit in sixth place in the conference standings. They will look to regroup against Spring Arbor on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. HU previously defeated the Cougars in their first Crossroads League road game of the season, 56-44, on December 3.

MEN`S BASKETBALL
The HU men`s basketball team led for only two seconds of Saturday`s contest against  Marian University (14-8, 5-5) but timing is everything as Austin Clark`s put back with two ticks remaining and an ensuing pair of free throws by Kyle Pipenger led to a 65-61 Forester win at Platt Arena.

With this win, Huntington completes the regular season sweep over the Knights with their first victory, a 58-53 decision, coming back on November 25. The win also snaps a five-game losing skid for Coach Platt and crew.

It was a flurry of activity leading up to Clark`s go ahead bucket as the Foresters had to battle back from a ten-point deficit just eight minutes prior. Down 52-42 at the 7:47 mark, Daniel Woll ignited the comeback with an old fashioned three-point play on his way to scoring seven of HU`s next ten points.

During Woll`s scoring spree, Pipenger accounted for the other three points by way of a long ball. Derek Hinen then reeled off his team`s next seven points to pull HU within two, 61-59, with 1:47 to go. After the Knights came up empty on their next trip down the court, Pipenger calmly sank two freebies with a minute remaining to deadlock the score at 61-61 and set the stage for Clark`s big second chance bucket.

Pipenger`s final two throws, the result of a technical foul on Marian Head Coach Todd Lickliter, sealed the deal as HU moves to 13-9 overall, 3-7 in Crossroads action.

Despite shooting 37.0 percent (10-for-27) to Marian`s 60.9 percent (14-for-23) through the first twenty minutes, the Foresters never let their deficit stretch to double digits as they headed into break trailing 32-24. The Knights would go on to take a ten-point advantage on four different occasions in the final stanza with the last coming at the eight-minute mark before HU finally mustered its impressive comeback.

Hinen finished with 20 points to go along with a game-best nine boards. Woll added 17 points and three assists while Tyler Ault tossed in nine points for HU.

Jason Riley also scored 20 points to share game-high scoring honors with Hinen. Caleb Begle posted 16 points as Marian`s only other double digit scorer.

The Foresters knocked down 60.9 percent of their field goals in the second half to finish the game 24-for-50 for 48.0 percent while the Knights went 10-for-24 in the last twenty minutes to finish 24-for-47 for 51.1 percent for the game. 

Next up for Huntington is Spring Arbor. The Foresters will hit the road on Tuesday to take on the Cougars at 7:00 p.m.

HU To Open New Student Ice Rink

By pam sherman
Sunday, January 25th, 2015

HUNTINGTON, Indiana — Huntington University will celebrate the first day of the spring semester with a grand opening event for its new ice rink at 7 p.m. on Jan. 26. The public is invited to attend the event.

The new portable ice rink covers the outdoor basketball court in front of the Merillat Complex Fieldhouse and will remain in place during the winter months. The Athletics Office has purchased skates as well as hockey sticks and pucks for student use.

The Fort Wayne Komets are the lead sponsor of the new facility, and representing them at the grand opening event will be Kaleigh Schrock, team captain; Mike Embach, lead scorer; Icy D. Eagle, mascot; and Ian Thornson, game operations/account manager.

 

`The Komets are proud to partner with HU on this student-led ice rink project and many other productive and engaging opportunities,` said Scott Sproat, executive vice president/co-owner of the Fort Wayne Komet Hockey Club. `Both our desire to support the growth of ice sports and our focus to continually improve our greater Fort Wayne community made this a no-brainer for us. We`re just proud to be a part of the project and look forward to Huntington students gaining a greater appreciation of the joys of hockey and skating outdoors. Many thanks to Huntington University for being exactly the kind of partner that helps us to help the greater Fort Wayne area.`

 

Junior Tyson Kalischuk, an accounting, business management and economics & finance major from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, presented the idea to Student Senate as an entry in the Think Tank competition in November. His ice rink proposal was voted students`favorite idea to improve the campus, and he was awarded $700 to help fund the project.

`Growing up in Canada, I frequently went skating and played ice hockey,`Kalischuk said. `One of my personal dreams has been to have a skating rink on the Huntington University campus that is accessible to all students.`

 

Since winning the Think Tank competition, he has embarked on a fundraising campaign for the remaining resources he needed to purchase and maintain the ice rink. To date, Kalischuk has raised $6,850, $675 more than the projected amount needed to cover the cost of the ice rink, building materials and sporting equipment.

He solicited and received additional funds from student organizations, including the Student Activities Board and Multicultural Activities Council. Various campus offices, including the Student Life Office, also contributed to the project. In addition, Kalischuk successfully sought outside funds from the Fort Wayne Komets, Beacon Credit Union, MacAllister Rentals and an anonymous donor.

`This truly was a student-led, student-executed project,` said Mark Schenkel, HU`s director of community relations and major gifts officer who also serves as a mentor to Kalischuk. `Tyson did all the work of writing proposals and meeting with prospective donors with minimal input. The Advancement Office is very proud of what he`s accomplished.`

The ice rink is open for use to Huntington University students, faculty and staff.

 

`I believe that this opportunity for students will impact them greatly this winter,` said Kalischuk. `It will provide them with something to do outside in the winter, which will better their HU experience, and will provide many students with a new cultural experience.`



HU Awarded 2 Grants Totaling $50,000

By pam sherman
Sunday, January 25th, 2015

HUNTINGTON, Indiana — The Huntington County Community Foundation has awarded two grants to Huntington University: $20,000 toward startup costs for the new Institute for Agricultural Studies and $30,000 for capital improvements to Forest Glen Park.

 

`We are grateful for the foundation`s support of these two significant endeavors at Huntington University,` said Vincent Haupert, HU`s vice president for advancement. `The foundation clearly understands and values the benefits of a new academic program and an enhanced athletic facility in Huntington County.`

 

In all, the Huntington County Community Foundation received 30 proposal for grants, and accepted proposals were funded through a Lilly Endowment Matching Grant. Proposals were chosen because their goals `improved the quality of life for Huntington County residents,` according to a letter from Michael Howell, executive director of the foundation.

 

Established in the fall of 2014, HU`s Institute for Agricultural Studies promotes a Christian perspective on agriculture, which recognizes a responsibility to be good stewards of God`s creation and to examine questions of sustainability and justice. 

 

HU`s agribusiness program, set to enroll students in fall of 2015, is intended to meet the growing need for agribusiness professionals and includes concentrations in agrimanagement, agrimarketing, agrieconomics and finance, agrientrepreneurial small business management, crop production, communication and public policy, and ministry and missions.

For more information about the program, log on to www.huntington.edu/agriculture.

 

On Dec. 18, the Huntington University Advancement Office announced the launch of a $700,000 campaign to renovate Forest Glen Park. To date, $313,158 has been raised through leadership pledges and gifts through `Friends of Forest Glen.`

 

The project will include the construction of a two-story brick building behind home plate to include a press box, restrooms, umpire changing room, concession area and training room. Additional enhancements include new dugouts and a backstop. The most compelling feature of these renovations will be elevated bleachers from dugout to dugout to include stadium seating behind home plate.

 

For more information regarding the campaign, visit www.fundingforesters.com.

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, and Forbes.com has listed the university as one of America`s Best Colleges. Additionally, Princeton Review has named the institution a `Best Midwestern College.`Founded in 1897 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Huntington University is located on a contemporary, lakeside campus in northeast Indiana. The university is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).

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.
