I hate to point out the facts....but this is the Unofficial tally from the Board of Election:
County Commissioner Total
Number of Precincts 32
Precincts Reporting 32 100.0 %
Times Counted 9043/18224 49.6 %
Total Votes 8847

Theresa Allen 3844 43.45%
Brice S. Beaman 5003 56.55%

No matter how many times you count it, Ms. Allen got beat. I observed about 12 different polling locations today. It wasn't exactly a bunch of "rich farmers" that turned out to vote.. Lots of elderly and working class people. Her message obviously didn't carry well with the voters that showed at the polls. In fact, Democrats in the welfare community that is Hardin County got owned.

Now lets see if the next bunch can do any better.

I'm sorry, but I think that the votes here in Hardin County are rigged. Look at Hart and Bacon. Nobody ran against them and I'm sure not one person on here agree's with them being in their position. As for Beaman I hope he does create jobs here in Kenton. Only wish that their was more commissioner and public jobs up for re-election.

Anybody could have ran against them. All it takes is filling out the paperwork and getting involved in the process. The other thing to consider is tha most people I have talked to Republican, Democrat, or Independent/Third Party seem to feel Bill Hart and Mike Bacon have done an OK job. Everybody loves to bitch about the judicial system in Hardin county, but it's nothing close to REAL corruption. And before you all start in with your stories about how you were screwed by the judicial system, save it. I'm sure you were innocent, just like all the cons in the local and state and Federal pen.

I wholly agree we need more candidates running for these jobs. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.. Letting the light in is the only thing that will solve the few big problems we have.

As far as the polls being rigged, I don't think so. Believe me, there are organizations and lobbies that regularly observe polling places (even right here in little old Hardin county). I know some of them. Spent some time with one of them the last few elections. One of these outfit's would love to prove voter fraud in Northwest and West Central Ohio but the evidence just isn't there. I spent some tome in Chicago. You havent seen anything around here.

I think it is sort of odd that so many here in Hardin County criticize the local farmers. Most of the farmers we have would be considered Family farms. They often have a regular job and farm as a second income. I only know of a few that have holdings that would qualify them to be considered in the big league. I also find that the definition of "rich" in Hardin County is applied to so many only in the middle class income range. Judgement is often passed on people for the car they drive and the house they live in, I guess they do not understand that you can buy nice things on credit if you work and apply yourself. This does not mean that you had the $50 k to pay for that deluxe dually diesel , it means you have convinced someone you have the integrity of making the payments by working hard to earn it. The overhead on a farm is astounding, payments on machinery alone could and does bankrupt many on a bad year. Jealousy is often the motivation behind some statements, If you look at many of the Career Farmers of our County ,you will find they support all kinds of Civic and community minded things. Farmers really are for improvements, they live and raise families here too. There is not enough land to add any more farm families so they understand the need for jobs. Open your minds and think... it is not the equation that we see nationally...

We also find that they LOVE those government welfare checks they ALL get. I think they call it subsidy-it is actually welfare though, farmers welfare. And those checks can be very, very large.I no one guy who all his subsidy combined is over twice what I make in a year.

Do you realize that not all farmers are eligible to receive those? Making this blanket statement about farmers here is like saying all Hardin County Citizens are drug addicts. I have a small Farm... I receive none.I have 5 other farmer friends they do not either. I know 4 with set aside ground. I do not believe in subsidies, but they are not as lucrative here as you are led to believe. perhaps someone could contact the Extension Office and get some figures. I am not even sure what subsidies are available now other than Government set aside...(which is not much more than cash rent, I think $200 per acre per year but do not hold me to that) The Farmers most referred to in reguards to subsidies are the Mega Farms in the western US , the biggest Farmers here would be Pip Squeaks to them... Hardin County has a limited number of tillable acres... it will never increase, the farms we have here could do one of two things. Stay the small family farm like we have, or be swallowed up and turned into a megafarm. The latter has no care for its neighbors...

I am sure someone will post soon with "see, those farmers are on welfare!"

Before you do keep in mind none of that money is guaranteed to be profit.

Just kidding , Shaun

In the United States, farm subsidies are kept alive by the Farm Bills passed every few years. They not only guarantee a price floor for a particular crop, but also assure farmers get an extra amount per unit of food item.

The 2008 Farm Bill an extra payment of 52 cents per bushel (Wheat). If the price of wheat is $3.50 per bushel, farmers may be guaranteed a set price of $3.55 per bushel as well as an extra 52 cents per bushel. Therefore even though the price of wheat is $3.50 per bushel, farmers get $4.05 per bushel.

Advocates of farm subsidies argue that they serve as a buffer against international crises, war, bad weather and other external factors that may jeopardize world food prices. In theory, farm subsidies strengthen the domestic agricultural sector and assure domestic food supply.

Rarely anymore is that the case. But if there was a subsidy available to your income, would you turn it down? I can't blame anyonewho is eligible for taking advantage of whatever is availablr. Remember, the original idea was to keep the breadbasket of the world producing food even thought there was an excess in supply.

I can tell you there are a hell of a lot of small farmers in this county who recieve nothing or very little to subsidise their operation.
