Page 2 Wednesday, June 5, 2013 The Adams County Record Ed00.'r I'm Proud of our sheriff Dear Editor, I'm proud of our sheriff in Adams County. ! know there are prob- lems like budget, per- sonnel, equipment, and unforeseen daily situa- tions that make being sheriff a full time job, but there is a non-money and non-time-consum- ing aspect of the job that means more to me than anything. That's the sher- iff's oath stating he will uphold the constitution of the United States. An oath our sheriff fully intends to keep. Our sheriff knows our freedom lies within the constitution, and that it's the people's document. I appreciate my freedom more than anything. Do You? r rold Pe__de.r Son Famines of Pharaoh Dear Editor, Famine... famine of food, famine of opportu- nity, famine of hope and famine of security; one begets another and one begets all the others. The first record of famine was found carved on a six thousand year old tomb on Sahal Island in Egypt's Nile River. All through the time of man, he has suffered hunger and death when he didn't plan for the bad days while he had the good days. Although he walked with- out fear through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, when man failed to plan, man planned to fail; it was that simple. In Darfur, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and too many other locations to men- tion, people are starving to death every day in this sad old world. From the Catholic Relief Services: "More than i billion people are suffering from hunger. Hunger causes the deaths of about 5 million chil- dren each year. About 17 million children ate born underweight annually, the result of inadequate nutri- tion before and during pregnancy." One can make a cynical case around ignorant, poor and hungry people con- tinuing to have children. One can consider that those suffering in Darfur, the DRC and other war- torn locations just hap- pen to be on the wrong side. One can consider self-imposed wounds with respect to those people who left their small family farms because of drought and moved to feeding cen- ters for those who would otherwise starve to death. One can rationalize, from our secure perspective, the cause of someone's hun- ger and pain; where the only thing that matters is to feed them, nothing else. After all the applied men- tal guilt and blame from the more fortunate of us, they are real human beings and they will certainly die without our help. That is absolutely all that matters! The "dust bowl" of the 1930s was coincident to the Great Depression. Coincident to the present depression, we again have what may become a multi- year drought. Our drought and inability to contribute to the world food supply will cause famine, hunger and death to some people in this world! "From a distance we all have enough and no one is in need' "From a dis- tance we are instruments, marching in a common bandy "From a distance there is harmony and it echoes through the land. It's ,the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace; it's the voice of every man." ("From a Distance"--Julie Gold) Ed 3"ameSom Free Fishing Day events FROM IDAHO FISH & GAME The following are the locations and times of Free Fishing Day events on June 8.
