Page 2 Wednesday, June 20, 2012 The Adams County Record Who do you believe? Dear Editor, Do you believe? Simple question, but the answer is far from easy. Do you believe in Vampires? In Werewolves, the walking dead, ghosts, what about the Holy Ghost? Do you believe the never-ending com- mercials that promise you health, happiness, and prosperity and great food that is healthful to you if you buy their product? Do you believe the promises and words of political sur- rogates? I received four appeals for money to support the election campaign of Mr. Mitt Romney because 'He has less money then Barack Obama. The read- ers will join me in some confusion when you hear there are over 20 billionaires supporting him. Mitt is just an aver- age guy whose personal wealth is only about 800 millions. On querying money solicitors about what to expect if he were elected, the only thing they will say is that Barack Obama would no longer be President. Inquiries about what specifically he proposes were left unan- swered. I guess they are soliciting because of faith. Mr. Romney's campaign has been marked with an absence of specifics about the problems that affect us all: a polarized politi- cal system, unemploy- ment resulting from ship- ping jobs overseas and an unfair tax code that favors the very wealthy. He has offered a very weak, poorly considered pro- posal for school vouch- ers that if affected would probably destroy educa- tional opportunities for the less wealthy. He offers no solution for Medicare solvency problems, and only vague hints about eliminating Medicare. Run Paul, I respect him, offered many specific sug- gestions about foreign policy - something that Mr. Romney has avoided. I digress overly long about Mitt Romrey. Do you believe? Belief is based on trust. Who can and do you trust and believe? We are being asked to elect a man who basically says noth- ing. Will you vote for Mr. Romney because your parents were Republican, or because you agree with what you hope will be his policies? If you believe in Vampires and Werewolves and politicians, have I got a deal for you. For a mod- est amount of money, that I will use to supplement my Social Security check, I will arrange a trip you will never forget to Skull Island. You will sail in luxury on the good ship Baron Munchhausen. On Skull Island you will be housed in typical native homes, or huts, Yodu will witness sacred native dances and possibly even see Kong himselfl Coz ,.; / Corrections & Clarifications In the article reporting on New Meadows City Council that ran in last week's edition, the correct title for Mac Quail is Clerk-Treasurer. The article seemed to imply that Mr. Quail had become the City Manager, a position that was eliminated earlier this year. Thank You Dear Editor, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to putting on the summer day camp at Council Elementary School. My kids loved each and every activity they participated in, and were all smiles at the end of each day. You truly made for a productive and FUN week for the kids! Melanie Vining @ Dear Editor: The TEA Party folks would like to express their appreciation to the community for their support of our Bake Sale and Lemonade Stand on June 13th. Virgil Butler of All About Wood donated space for our booth; many folks donated baked items; and many more folks came to buy, some of them donating more than the price of the yummy stuff they bought. As a result of your generosity the TEA Party took in $338 of which $56 went to the Record for our advertising leaving $282 that we could present to the Republican party delegates to help with their expenses in representing Adams County at the Republican State Convention in Idaho Falls from June 21-23. Thank you, Council, for all your help! @ Dear Editor, We would like to thank everyone who helped to create and erect the Charlie Stovner Memorial at the rodeo grounds. These include: Ray Groves, Bill Johnson, Dallas Smith, Verl Cate, Cambridge Metal Works, Cambridge Lumber, Justin Getusky and Jamie Gibleau. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

Editor's Notebook Red Meat Unhealthy? Linda Taylor's article on Triglycerides mentions red meat and dairy products, and also lists Omega3 as a way to counteract the negative effects of eating fed meat and dairy products. Before human populations exploded and ways to produce mass quantities of meat and other food became what it is now, animals raised for meat and milk ate a lot more grass and hay. Today, meat animals 'are "finished" on a diet consisting a 1 m o s t exclusively of grains (corn, barley, etc.) As this change in meat animal diets shifted, heart disease increased dramatically.. An argument for why this happened, and one that makes perfect sense to me, is that animals fed green plant material produce meat containing Omega-3 fatty acids. Animals fed a grain diet produce much less Omega-3. That's why grass-fed beef is so much better for our hearts and arteries. And I assume wild game is also better. So, the theory goes: it's not red meat that is unhealthy, but the way it is produced from animals lacking green feed and therefore lacking Omega-3s. I'm not up on how dairy products fit into the equation, but a similar principle applies. Fuk , 7 RIVERS LIVESTOCK t, t COMMISSION Check our website for details on upcoming sales.
