Last Tuesday, after years of court battles, Vernon "Hughie" Bowman, a small farmer from my hometown of Sandborn, took his fight against one of the nation’s largest corporations to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Hughie Bowman is a great example of what is possible if you keep trying. Here’s a small farmer from a small town in rural Indiana who stuck to his principles and refused to back down.

Hughie’s fight is an inspiration for all those who stand up to seemingly insurmountable odds.

Hoosiers will continue to face struggles and frustrations as some misguided politicians in the Indiana Statehouse place greater emphasis on singling us out rather than bringing us together. Like Hughie, we can’t give up – no matter the odds.

So as the now second most famous person from Sandborn, Ind., I ask my fellow Hoosiers to stay in this fight and protect our shared values and principles for this and the next generation of Hoosiers. If Hughie can do it, so can we.

- John Gregg, 2012 Democratic nominee for governor, Sandborn, Ind.
