Reader questions youth's priorities
From: Rona L. Hankin
Your article on 4-H livestock auction with a heading saying, "Raising livestock for slaughter pays off for young businessmen" [The Howard County Sun, Aug. 16] really upsets me.
One of the big campaign platforms is for family values. What kind of values does a 16-year-old who learns that money is more important than anything else in life? The article states that when the animals are sick they must be cared for and they must be exercised for good muscle tone. Are these children learning respect for life or as the article states, "...Lesson is learned in an art many corporate executives pay good money to grasp: time management."
