Many people in Adams County know what Jay Gould has been doing the past 45 years as an advisor and an aide to local farmers at two United States government agencies.
However, almost no one knows what Gould was doing in 1962.

"If he is running for president, it would be an interesting and novel strategy. We could call it the Win Indiana Strategy!"
