Upset about traffic stop treatment

(Continued)

While farming makes a significant impact on the Hoosier economy, today less than 2 percent of the population lives on farms, putting farming in the spotlight usually only when droughts or floods make the news. The Glass Barn will feature a history of farming progress, and hands-on opportunities that give a real look into the family-farming experience as a business, a science and part of Indiana’s history.

The Glass Barn is more than just a new building. It’s an investment by the Indiana Soybean Alliance to help tell the story of how farmers in Indiana operate today, and how we’re committed to growing food that is safe and healthy for Hoosiers and the environment. And as part a farming family myself, I hope visitors to the Glass Barn will walk away with a clear idea of how technology helps family operations like our own work smarter, and do more for Indiana and the great Hoosier families that live here.

Upset about traffic stop treatment

Dear Editor:

My daughter was stopped by one of your fine men in blue last night (7/23); she had forgotten to put on her seat belt after taking my grandson to McDonald’s. This was around 9:30 at night. She was on Highway 52.

When the officer ran the plate it came back belonging to her other car. Her other car had broken down on her and when she purchased her current car we thought that she had 30 days to transfer plates.

Well, the officer decided that the car needed to be impounded. This fine man decided it was OK to leave her out on the highway with two children (ages 2 months and 5 years).

My daughter is a hard worker and doesn’t take anything off the government. She actually went back to work after only two weeks of having my granddaughter because she had to be able to pay her insurance. She has worked since she was 15, not because she had to but because she wanted to. Her current job involves a lot of walking, in all types of weather. She has been going in early so that she can finish because of the heat. Plus, she takes care of her babies, as well as her house. I’m dang proud of her.
