Monday, March 2nd, 2015

TRACK & FIELD
The official qualifiers for the 2015 NAIA Men`s and Women`s Indoor Track & Field National Championships have been announced by the national office and among the list of qualifiers are four Foresters.

Looking to build on his success last season, junior Jake Nash (Lebannon, Ohio, Dayton Christian) will make a return trip to indoor nationals where he is seeded seventh in high jump. Nash earned his spot at nationals with a mark of 2.09 meters at the Don and Riley Zimmer Classic hosted by Trine University on January 30. Last year the leapster finished sixth to earn All-America honors.

Making his first trip to the national stage is sophomore Brooks Gerke. The Auburn native (Lakewood Park) will be competing in the heptathlon as the 16th-seed having qualified at the Findlay Indoor Classic back on January 23.

Sophomore Christine Sparks is heading back to indoor nationals for the second time in as many years in the 1,000 meters. She punched her ticket at the DePauw Indoor Classic on February 21 where she posted a 3:03.83. Last year the Bloomington South High School product (Bloomington, Ind.) clocked in at 3:03.12 at nationals to finish 13th.

Rounding out the crew of Foresters heading to nationals is Christiana Hicks (Fort Wayne, Ind., Snider). She will represent HU in triple jump. The sophomore qualified on February 7 at Ohio Northern`s Joe Banks Invitational with a mark of 11.29 meters. She will enter the event seeded 20th.

The 50th annual men`s and 35th annual women`s events will take place March 5-7 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.

Stretch Internet, the NAIA`s official video streaming company, will be broadcasting all sessions of the national championships. Packages can be purchased for $10. For more information, click here.



HU Womens BBall vs. Indiana Wesleyan

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

WOMEN`S BASKETBALL
It was an unbelievable night for the 4th-seeded HU women`s basketball team as they not only upset top-seeded Indiana Wesleyan University for the second time this season on their floor, but did so convincingly this time around by a margin of 21 points. The 77-56 loss is the largest margin of defeat the Wildcats have suffered since March 12, 2011, when they lost to Northwestern, 79-58, in the Elite Eight of the NAIA National Tournament.

The win sends the Foresters to the championship game of the Crossroads League tournament on Monday night where they will face 2nd-seeded Marian University at 7 p.m. in Indianapolis. The winner of Monday`s contest will be crowned the Crossroads League tournament champions and receive the league`s second automatic bid to the big dance.

Less than 30 seconds into the game, Amelia Recker slid up and under her defender to kiss a shot off the glass to give her team what proved to be a permanent lead. Little did anyone suspect that that two-point advantage would do nothing but grow over the next 39 minutes as the Foresters never trailed to the fifth-ranked team in the nation.

Fueled by a field goal percentage of 50.0 percent (27-for-54), Huntington built its first double digit lead of 24-14 by the 7:18 mark of the first half and never looked back. Recker scored 11 of her game-high 24 points in the first twenty minutes to send the Foresters into break with a 37-26 advantage.

The Wildcats would erase the lead to seven, 37-30, within the first 60 seconds of the final period but Recker and Kelsey Hubble weren’t about to let their team`s lead dip any lower. After Recker`s jumper and two freebies, Hubble drained back-to-back triples to quickly pad the lead to 17 at 47-30.

It was the beginning of the end for IWU as Huntington had their way with the Wildcats after that. Two possessions later, Miranda Palmer spearheaded the next HU spurt when she sandwiched two Recker free throws with HU`s third long ball of the stanza and an acrobatic layup to extend the lead to 22 with just over 14 minutes remaining.

Thirteen points would be as close as the Wildcats would get the rest of the way as the Foresters never let IWU string together more than an 8-0 run.

In addition to Recker`s 24 points, Palmer and Hubble chipped in 20 and 17 points respectively. The tandem accounted for eight of their team`s nine triples as Palmer dropped in three and Hubble drained five.

Courtney Baker logged a unique double double of 14 rebounds and ten assists to go along with three steals.

Most telling of HU`s impressive win was how well they worked to find an open teammate as 23 of their 27 field goals were assisted. The Foresters also dominated the boards 44-23 and got to the line 16 times where they converted 14 of their attempts for 87.5 percent.

Erika Isham came off the bench to pace IWU with 15 points while Emma Stahl pitched in 12. Huntington limited the league`s player of the year in Katrina Blackmon to just four points. They also held Carlee Cottrell to three points after the sharp shooter punished HU for 24 points last time these two teams met.

The Foresters improve to 22-8 while the Wildcats drop to 27-5.

Seven HU Students Earn Media Awards

By Pam Sherman
Thursday, February 26th, 2015

The Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters (iNRB) has recognized seven Huntington University students with awards for outstanding examples of radio, TV and film production with one team taking the “Film Award of Excellence.”

 

The students, all from HU’s Digital Media Arts Department, received the honors at the iNRB Student Production Awards Ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday.

 

Juniors and film production majors Cassie Kasicki of Rockford, Illinois, and Eric Luce of Salina, Kansas, won first place in the documentary film category for their entry titled “XO: What Defines You?” Their project also received the “Film Award of Excellence” within all the film categories.

 

Junior Eric Luce and senior Brianna Santiago, a broadcast-fusion media major from Goshen, Indiana, won first place in the TV/video: student production category for their “FDN News” entry.

 

“I was very excited to learn that both of the submissions I entered won first place in their category,” Luce said. “‘XO’ [the documentary] was a full semester’s worth of work, and FDN News has been an ongoing process that I’ve been involved with ever since I came to HU. It was very encouraging to have them recognized because it justifies all of the late nights that it took to put them together.”

 

Seniors and film production majors Rachel Larson of Lakeville, Minnesota; Luke Myers of Franklinville, New York; and Ethan Burch of Bloomington, Indiana, won first place in the film: short film category for their entry titled “Infamy.”

 

“I’m incredibly thankful that ‘Infamy’ is being recognized for all of the hard work that was put into it by HU students,” Burch said. “It was one of my favorite projects to work on in my four years here, and I feel truly blessed that it is leaving an impact on the audience in one way or another.” 

 

Senior Carissa Taylor, a film production major from Angola, Indiana, won second place in the TV/video: web production category for her entry titled “Thankful.”

 

`I am so proud of our students and how much work they put into their projects,` said Dr. Lance Clark, department chair and professor of digital media arts, film and communications. `Broadcast-fusion media students have stepped up their game with FDN News, and our Film Production student film `Infamy` is a great, heartfelt story about forgiveness and moving on set in the post-World War II era. It shows an excellence in our digital media arts program and that our students can compete and win at the national level in film production and broadcast news.`

 

First-place winners in each category were awarded $150 in prize money to be divided among team members plus the opportunity to attend the 2015 NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to prize money, all first-place winners received a trophy and a certificate along with $300, divided among team members, to cover transportation costs to the convention. Second and third-place winners and their schools received a certificate.

 

Twelve students traveled to the NRB convention this year along with Dr. Lance Clark and Dawn Ford, associate professor of digital media arts. All of the students competed in an onsite 24-hour media contest in film, TV news and public relations. Participants included the following:

 

·        Film team: Ethan Burch, Cassie Kasicki and sophomore Emerald Leong, a film production and film studies major from Honolulu, Hawaii

·        TV news team: freshman Abby Frisco, a film production major from Enola, Pennsylvania; junior Kelsey Kruse, a broadcast-fusion media major from Auburn, Indiana; and Eric Luce

·        Public relations team: junior Jacob Cross, a broadcast-fusion media major from Jackson, Michigan; freshman Logan Hunt, a broadcast-fusion media major from Indianapolis, Indiana; senior Victor McCarty, a broadcast-fusion media major from Westfield, Indiana; and junior Justin White, a broadcast-fusion media major from Clymer, New York

 

The Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters organization is committed to promoting excellence, integrity and networking opportunities in media. The organization seeks to provide a forum where members can network together to share ideas and goals.

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

The Automotive Technology program at Ivy Tech Community College Northeast has once again received accreditation from the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation.

The foundation is the educational branch of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, which provides the industry standard certification.

`The accreditation means we`re teaching industry-recognized material that meet the needs of local employers,` says Nick Goodnight, an automotive technology instructor at Ivy Tech Northeast.

Graduates from the program will have a degree that carries more weight than it would from an unaccredited institution, and employers will know the quality and rigor of the program because of the certification.

Part of the foundation`s requirements for certification include meeting 12 standards, including:

·         The automotive technician training program should have clearly stated program goals, related to the needs of the students and employers served.

·         An officially sanctioned program advisory committee must be used to provide input on program goals.

·         Equipment and tools must be of the type and quality found in the repair industry and must also be the type needed to provide training to meet the program goals and performance objectives.

`By utilizing standards established by industry, NATEF examines the structure, resources and quality of training programs with the goal to improve the quality of training offered at secondary and post-secondary, public and proprietary schools,` according to the foundation`s website.

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.
