Exercise Your Right – Vote

No sunshine across the Cornfield is forecast tomorrow as voters head to the polls. Rain will dominate along with dark, gray clouds dot the sky.

I will take advantage of my right to make my voice heard. In so doing, I retain the right to both criticize and boast over the next two years.

Though a struggle, I will walk across the street to the Ruritan Building to cast my ballot. For whom, I have yet to decide at the top of the ticket. For the down ballot races, I am pretty confidant which lever to pull.

As usual the squeakiest wheels are from both the far left and the far right. Will extreme liberals and ultra conservatives determine the outcome or will those more toward the center be the deciding voters?

There is nothing wrong with being a liberal if you apply common sense. There is nothing wrong with being a conservative as long as you utilize common sense. The same goes for moderates.

There are examples of the detriment of both fringes. Kansas shows the devastation on the people of ultra conservatism. Detroit is a study in how extreme liberalism can lead to demise and destruction.

The most skillful governors, legislators, mayors, council members and commissioners understand that to govern effectively, you must govern from the center, not too far right nor too far left.

This is why every vote counts.

From the Cornfield, exercise your right – vote!

I am Mark Ivy, a born and bred Hoosier.
I am father to two wonderful sons, Dave and Kev, of whom I am very proud;
two terrific daughters-in-law, Anna and Hailey; three beautiful granddaughters, Dylan, Alaina and Amelia.

On May 9, 2017, my lung specialist hit me with the news I had maybe six months to live if the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the damage caused by the histoplasmosis described below, ran its normal course. I am now on hospice at home. Content and ready to cross over the river to the other side.

On September 2, 2014, I was diagnosed with disseminated histoplasmosis, a fungal infection, discovered by a biopsy of my larynx.
The infection is fatal if left untreated. For 2 1/2 years I lived under a death sentence being misdiagnosed
with a non-specific bacterial infection which left my right lung a “dried up sponge” and non-functioning.
I was aggressively treated for the infection with antifungals.
The treatment ended October of 2015 and fortunately did not take two years.

I suffer from chronic Horton’s Syndrome. The effects vary widely causing various problems.
Statistically, Horton’s affects only 0.1% of the population. Major depression also attacks me regularly.
