Letter: What's going on, America?

Meat prices are skyrocketing. In 2012, massive droughts led to the highest prices for corn and soybeans in history. Ranchers were forced to bring their cattle to market because they couldn't afford to feed them. With summer season here, the demand for beef has escalated while the cattle population has reached a 60-year low.

Ranchers blame the lack of feed for their cattle on the 2012 drought and on the federal mandates requiring 27 percent of the U.S. corn crop to be used to produce 7.5 billion gallons of ethanol, according to the National Corn Growers Association. We are literally throwing our food into our gas tanks. That said, there are "plenty of oil resources" available within our borders but our government has irresponsibly refused to pursue this avenue based on bogus globalist influences.In recent years foreign ownership of America's farmland has doubled. According to information from examiner.com and other sources, foreign ownership is gobbling up U.S. farmland. USA Today recently reported "a Chinese company's planned $4.7 billion buy of Smithfield Foods, the nation's largest hog producer and processor ..."Further, there has been an increase in natural disasters. The annual number of natural disasters in the United States — earthquakes, floods, fires, hurricanes and more-has more than tripled since the 1980s and it continues to escalate.Let me be candid. As one proceeds into this decade, one better have a close relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. People are going to need it more so than many realize at this time.

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
