They are Deborah Hines, Steven Nishibayashi and the Rev. Deborah Jackson.Each candidate must receive a majority of votes to be elected to the committee. The second ballot will open on June 15.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Kron Says Engaged Members are the Key to the Future of Farm… Previous articlePurdue Animal Sciences Project Already Years in the MakingNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt Today Hoosier Ag Today concludes its profiles of the candidates for Indiana Farm Bureau President. Kron Says Engaged Members are the Key to the Future of Farm BureauRandy KronRandy Kron is currently the Vice President of Indiana Farm Bureau, but is hoping that in two weeks delegates will choose him to move into the President position. He is a grain and soybean producer in Vandenberg County, “Agriculture and farming have always been in my blood. In high school, I knew the joy of being involved in 4H and FFA. I received a degree in agriculture economics from Purdue University. Not long after, my wife and I served as the Young Farmer representatives on our county board; and, from that point on, we have been working hard to advance agriculture in the State of Indiana. We believe in the role of the Farm Bureau in agriculture and want to take the next step in our involvement. On our farm, it’s a family affair that includes my wife, Joyce, and I; and recently our son returned to help keep the tradition alive. I hope to help other families realize that same joy.”Kron says membership is a key issue for Farm Bureau but, more importantly, it is having engaged members, “We have to show them that showing up at the Statehouse or attending a County Commission meeting bring value back to their farm and rural community.” Kron believes in strong support of county farm bureaus, “Without the hard work and dedication of our county membership, there is no farm bureau. So the most important step farmers can take is to be a part of Indiana Farm Bureau and join us as we work together to bring a united voice to our work all across the state.” He is also a strong advocate of the Farm Bureau Insurance company.Kron says the biggest challenge facing agriculture is communications with consumers, “They have questions about how their food is produced, and we must answer those questions. We have to reach out and tell our story.” In addition, Kron said a strong Indiana agriculture sector is good for our state, “Agriculture means jobs. It means jobs on the farm; it means jobs at grocery stores, in retail establishments. It means jobs at ethanol production facilities. The more time, energy, and dollars we invest in agriculture the more we get in return.”Kron wants Farm Bureau to be at the forefront of telling agriculture’s story and to be a unifying factor to bring all of agriculture together, “Agriculture is a minority, but a united minority can always be more powerful than a divided majority.” He added this is one of the driving reasons he want to become Farm Bureau President, “I believe in Farm Bureau and want to keep agriculture a strong and viable occupation so that the next generation will want to return to our family farms. Since Indiana Farm Bureau is a general farm organization, we can bring all the commodity groups together to create a strong voice for the agriculture industry.”Listen to the complete conversation with randy Kron Kron Says Engaged Members are the Key to the Future of Farm Bureau Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Nov 10, 2015 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE

Unemployment rates skyrocketed, leaving cash-strapped renters struggling to make ends meet and landlords lowering rates in the hopes of keeping their tenants, and local economies, afloat. Rent increases slowed sharply from an average of 2.9% in the first quarter of 2020 to 1.7% in May and 1.4% in June.”“Increases in single-family rent prices slowed dramatically this spring as the nation began to face the economic impact of the pandemic. As job losses slowed in July, rent growth steadied,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic. “However, increases in rents should remain sluggish until the economy starts to experience employment gains.”At 4.7%—and for the 20th consecutive month—Phoenix, Arizona, experienced the highest year-over-year hike in single-family rents in June. That said, compared to its average growth rate of 6.5% in Q1 2020, rent growth there has begun to decelerate. Phoenix was followed by Tucson, Arizona, which inched up 4.1% in rent price growth in June, followed by Charlotte, North Carolina at 3.4%.Meanwhile, CoreLogic reports that areas that traditionally depend on tourism to help shore up their economy saw annual declines in their rent prices: Honolulu, Los Angeles, Miami, and Boston all saw declines, with Honolulu experiencing the worst drop at -1.3%.CoreLogic studies a quartet of tiers of rental prices for a precise look at prices of single-family rentals. In June, prices took a hit across all tiers, with a sustained widening gulf between the low-end and high-end tiers. In June, the national single-family rent growth across the four tiers, and the year-over-year changes, were as follows:Lower-priced (75% or less than the regional median): 2.5%, down from 3.7% in June 2019Lower-middle priced (75% to 100% of the regional median): 1.5%, down from 3.1% in June 2019Higher-middle priced (100% to 125% of the regional median): 1.4%, down from 6% in June 2019Higher-priced (125% or more than the regional median): 1%, down from 2.5% in June 2019 Previous: Mortgage Connect Earns Place on Financial Services List Next: Industry Webinar Spotlight: Mitigating Risk, CWCOT Changes Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe

(company running Republic TV and R Bharat channels) against Times Now anchor Navika Kumar, for making allegedly defamatory remarks against Republic TV and its Chief Arnab Goswami, in connection with the TRP Scam case. The Court of ACMM Chander Jit Singh has fixed the matter for pre-summoning evidence on June 8, 2021, after hearing Advocate Vijay Agarwal (for Republic TV) through video conferencing. In its complaint under Section 499/ 500 IPC, ARG Outlier has alleged that Republic Media Network has been the target of a vicious, vindictive and malice driven exercise under the Maharashtra Government and that Kumar, as a part of a planned scheme and to take advantage of the ongoing deep-seated malice intends to further her own corporate interests. It is stated that the entire matter relating to alleged TRP manipulations is being investigated and pending consideration before the Bombay High Court. Regardless, it is alleged, in a telecast dated 18 January: “By misusing, misconstruing and distorting the documents from the Mumbai Police’s chargesheet in the TRP Scam, mainly the WhatsApp Chats, and without regard to the matter being sub judice both before the lower courts at Mumbai and the Hon’ble Bombay High Court, the Accused Person has gone on a reckless spree to spew grossly defamatory material mentioned below that has been telecast, published, circulated and disseminated on the TV Channel Times Now as well as the internet in various portal such as the Youtube.” The company has urged that Kumar cannot be permitted to steal a march over the adjudication process and pronounce the channel guilt by elevating itself a parallel adjudication forum. “Two charge sheets have already filed but investigation is still ongoing. Trial has not yet begun, and Complainant Company is factually innocent and also presumed innocent until proven guilty. The matter will be decided in accordance with law and no third-party interloper can be permitted to preempt the process of law,” states the complaint. In the complaint, ARG Outlier has gone on to say that Kumar is jealous of the manner in which Arnab Goswami launched Times Now and made it a thriving news channel within a year, and thereafter launched Republic TV, which has also gathered attraction. “The Accused is jealous and the lack of ability of the Accused to match the success of the Complainant company, has caused this defamatory show to be aired,” states the complaint. It is alleged that Navika Kumar made “rabid and unrounded claims” accusing Arnab Goswami of endangering national security and leaking state secrets; such allegations “an utter falsehood” and “outright falsehood”.Next Story
Linn County Sheriff’s Office(LEBANON, Ore.) — Authorities have found 14 dead horses on a property in Oregon and seized another 34 after spending months trying to work with the owners to improve conditions for the animals.On Wednesday, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office seized the horses after serving a search warrant at the home of Carol Davidson, 69, and Edward Davidson, 66, on Berlin Road just outside Lebanon, Oregon, according to a press release.The Linn County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control was first alerted to the property in December after it received complaints of horses standing in muddy conditions, and has been trying to work with the property owners ever since, authorities said. At that time, the state of the horses’ well being was not a concern, Linn County Sheriff’s Lt. Michelle Duncan told ABC Portland affiliate KATU.“Some animal owners, either they’re not capable or they get overwhelmed with what they’re taking care of, so we always try to work with the owners,” Duncan said.But, those efforts were unsuccessful. In January, Linn County Sheriff’s Deputy Corey Putney observed several horses still standing in muddy conditions as well as a dead horses that had not been disposed of properly when he drove by the property, authorities said. Putney also noticed that the horses were starting to show signs of poor health and had lost an unhealthy amount of weight since he saw them the month before, according to the release.At that time, Putney cited Carol Davidson for placing an offensive substance near a waterway, highway or property, and failure to license dogs, but continued to work with the property owner to improve the conditions the horses were kept in, authorities said. Carol Davidson was “cooperative” and “made some changes to address the conditions,” but those changes were “minimal and not sustained,” according to the release.Putney checked on the horses periodically in the months that followed, but the sheriff’s office continued to receive several calls regarding the property, and earlier this month, authorities received another report of dead horses on the property, authorities said.When deputies responded, they found some of the living horses standing in “septic” mud and water full of urine and feces, authorities said. The mud was up to the horses chests in some places, and another 13 horses were found dead, KATU reported.Putney also found that the health of the still-living horses was deteriorating, and took action to seize them, authorities said. They were “skinny,” with their ribs and hip bones showing, and did not have access to clean drinking water or food, according to the release.Sheep and several dogs that were found on the property appeared to be in “adequate health” and were not seized, authorities said. The sheep were kept in a separate area from the horses, according to the release.Carol Davidson suffered a medical emergency while deputies were serving the search warrant and had to be transported to the hospital, authorities said. Criminal animal neglect charges are pending for both Carol Davidson and Edward Davidson, according to the release. Because of the number of horses, the charges qualify for a Class C felony, Duncan said.ABC News could not immediately reach the Davidsons for comment. It is unclear if they have retained an attorney.The horses were transported to the facility for Sound Equine Options, a nonprofit that rescues horses, to be evaluated and receive veterinary care, authorities said. They will then be fostered out to other locations.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
mbbirdy/iStockBy LAUREN LANTRY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Nineteen years ago Friday, nearly 3,000 American lives were lost when planes were hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.But as the U.S. commemorates that day of infamy, it is simultaneously grappling with the coronavirus.About 191,000 lives have been lost in the United States so far — some 60 times more than on 9/11.Due to the pandemic, ceremonies that normally take place to commemorate this tragic day are starkly different this year.In New York City, families of the victims of 9/11 and survivors have still been invited to the site of where their loved ones died, but they have been required to wear masks.In prior years, names of those who died have been read aloud by family members and friends in the plaza. But this year, according to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the reading of those names has been pre-recorded to be played out on speakers.Members of the general public have been discouraged to attend and pay tribute.The Pentagon is holding a ceremony at which Secretary of Defense Marker Esper and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley will both give remarks. But the audience will consist solely of Defense Department senior staff and officials. Family members of those who lost their lives will be allowed to visit later in the day but will not be in the audience for the ceremony.On Capitol Hill, House members, wearing masks, gathered for a moment of silence on the East Front Steps of the U.S. Capitol at 8:46 a.m. and then sang a verse of “God Bless America” as they memorably did the evening of the attacks.Both former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump were attending private ceremonies at Shanksville.As of Sept 1., 2020, 1,642 of the 2,753 victims of the attack on the World Trade Center have been positively identified, according to the NYC Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Nineteen years since the attacks, a total of 1,111 victims have not been positively identified.More than 1,400 Sept. 11 survivors and responders have contracted the coronavirus so far, according to data from the World Trade Center Health Program.Due to their compromised immune systems from surviving Sept. 11, especially their ailing respiratory symptoms, many have fallen ill. As of Aug. 21, at least 191 have been hospitalized and 44 have died.John Feal, a former construction worker who has suffered long-term health damage from working at Ground Zero after 9/11, told ABC News that he remembers the nation’s unity after the attacks.“If we were to bottle Sept. 12 and we learned to live like everyone did that day, the pandemic would go away a lot faster,” Feal said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
