Purdue economists said “The middle income consumers, $5,000 to $25,000, have apparently had a superior mix of assets and debts for hedging against inflation. The concentration of assets and debts in the hands of high-income consumer-investors, $25,000 or more, has probably not benefitted this group relative to others during the recent “inflationary periods.”

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
