Standing up for rural postal delivery
Post offices are crucial anywhere, but especially crucial in rural areas that depend on the postal service to stay connected through news delivery, services crucial to businesses and, in some communities, a link to prescription drugs and other services.
The mail service is a national treasure that has been in operation for 240 years. Every day, the Postal Service provides affordable, universal mail service to all - without using taxpayer dollars for its operation.

Kids and carrots
Nothing says happy and healthy like an image of children gardening, harvesting and eating carrots, beets, cabbages, cucumbers, etc.
The Summer "Out of School" Program students in Fremont, Nebraska, got to do just that when they helped create an After School Garden at Linden Elementary School there.
With the support of the school district and the Linden administration, and the help of local volunteers, two raised bed gardens were constructed. The students took ownership over the work of caring for the garden.

Planned Parenthood and politics ...
Health Access and Privacy Alliance (HAPA) is disappointed that Indiana's two U.S. senators, Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly, voted to defund Planned Parenthood based upon attacks by a group dedicated to destroying Planned Parenthood and completely banning access to all abortion care.
This is not the conversation lawmakers in Indi­ana need to be having about the health of women, children and families.
In many communities, a Planned Parenthood health center is one of the only places some women can turn to for affordable care, including family planning services and basic health care.

... Spewing disengenuous fodder
Over the last month, the world awakened to a steady stream of videos showing top officials at Planned Parenthood haggling over the price of aborted baby organs and casually discussing how those organs are harvested.
"Why don't you start by telling me what you're used to paying," says Mary Gatter, the bedical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena when asked what she would expect to get paid from someone buying fetal tissue. She goes on to say that at her clinic, doctors alter their abortion procedures to preserve an unborn child's kidneys, lungs and heart if they know those organs can be sold. Similar statements are repeated by Planned Parenthood executives throughout a series of videos.
Listening to these conversations was both gruesome and heartbreaking. As I watched Planned Parenthood executives sip wine and eat lunch while putting a price tag on human life, I thought to myself, "When did this become acceptable in our culture? As a society have we become this numb to atrocity?"

Honoring Hoosier farmers
In the great state of Indiana, farming has been a way of life for generation after generation. In fact, since our state's inception, this industry has been key to our livelihood, contributing $44.1 billion to the Indiana economy - even during the devastating drought of 2012.
Needless to say, these farms do not run themselves, and I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the tireless dedication of the Hoosier farmer.
