An appeal for organic farming

To me, the most important occupation in the world is farming. Where would we be without farmers?

I want to make an appeal to all the Indiana and Illinois farmers to watch the video below. I have also provided the website of Will Allen’s organic farm in Vermont. He is able to feed thousands from his 40-acre farm. He started in California in the ’70s and moved to Connecticut 16 years ago and is educating people about organic farming.

This video at this link covers how to convert an old tractor to solar, the use of beneficial insects, the greenhouse effect, how toxic meat is, GMOs and how many people die each year from food-borne illnesses.

He will travel 200 miles to help a farmer change over his land to healthful food and soil. He is willing to help all farmers with this process. Please take a look at what this amazing, conscientious farmer has done and is doing for the good of mankind.

If the government ever decides to make farmers clean up their soil of arsenic and all the other chemicals and pesticides that are used, everyone will go bankrupt. Most farmers get cancer and autoimmune diseases from farming. So please, consider this alternative and help people from their toxic diseases. Thank you.

Kesler best choice for judge position

Experience matters.

I am writing to endorse John A. Kesler II for judge of Vigo Superior Court Division 2. I have known John for several years as a lawyer and friend. John has always been family and civic minded. He is a lifelong resident of Vigo County and shows a love of this community with many hours of volunteer service.

John’s experience as a lawyer is just what Vigo County needs in a judge. He has experience in the courtroom at city, county and federal levels. He has served as judge pro tempore, which gives him the knowledge and experience to be a great judge for our community.

When you step back and look at John A. Kesler II for judge and all his experience, you will see that we have no choice but to elect him on May 6.
