This county is in another year of drought. Many of the farmers who put food on your table and clothes on your back are facing losing everything. Some have been farming for generations. Their struggle is manifesting in despair, depression, suicide, poverty and worse. In many cases all they can do is watch the sky in desperation as their crops don't take and their livestock perish, while they remain powerless.
How can we sit back on New Year's Eve and watch millions of dollars literally go up in smoke for a few minutes of our viewing pleasure when this money could do so much toward helping these farmers, the backbone of our county, live to fight another day?
