Proposed Rail Merger is Major Concern for Farmers

first_imgJohn Long, a soybean producer from Newberry, South Carolina, and President of the American Soybean Association has expressed the concerns of ASA’s 29,000 producer members to Congressman Pat Roberts (R-KS) regarding a proposed merger of Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroad lines.”The impact of this merger will be felt across the entire soybean producing region. Soybean producers are concerned the merger will result in a lack of competitive rail service for moving grain and possible total loss of service in some rural communities,” stated Long.The rail issue is of vital importance to U.S. soybean producers who rely on the rail system to transport crops to domestic processing plants as well as barge facilities and seaports for shipment to international markets. One-half of the 2.2 billion bushel U.S. soybean crop is exported to foreign customers.This year’s U.S. agriculture crop is projected to contribute over $60 billion to the U.S. balance of trade. Not only will the international marketing of soybeans be affected if the merger occurs, there will also be an impact on domestic marketing practices.”We have learned discussions between Union Pacific and Southern Pacific suggest even more line closures, which could result in the loss of competitive pricing for all markets along existing routes,” concluded Long. Long’s comments included a request for Congressman Roberts to contact the Surface Transportation Board regarding the merger.last_img read more

ASA Urges EU Commission to Find Practical Solution for the Low Level

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) this week urged the European Commission to find a workable and commercially viable solution to the EU’s zero tolerance for the low level presence of EU-unapproved biotech events. European livestock and feed industries, along with U.S. growers, all have been advocating for a workable solution due to the EU’s slow and politically-influenced biotech approval process that results in European biotech reviews and approvals taking over twice as long as science-based reviews and approvals in the rest of the world, including the United States.The ASA and European feed and livestock industries believe a partial practical solution to this problem is for the EU to permit the low level presence of a biotech trait that has undergone regulatory review and received safety clearances in the country of export. The other part of the solution is for the EU to greatly improve the timeliness of its approval system and ensure that its approval process is wholly science-based. The EU is the fourth largest export market for U.S. soybeans, representing sales of more than $1 billion in 2007. To avoid disruption of trade and resulting negative impacts on EU livestock production, ASA is advocating practical and sensible tolerance level solutions be found to ensure that there are no unwarranted barriers to trade.Since 1994, ASA has carried out numerous missions to the EU on biotechnology issues. In the course of the past six months, ASA has held many meetings in the EU on the asynchronous approvals and zero tolerance issues. In almost all of these meetings, ASA has been asked about zero tolerances (and in particular very low-level tolerances such as 0.1 percent) by concerned EU industries from the feed and farming sectors.In a letter to Paola Testori Coggi, Deputy Director General, DG SANCO, European Commission, ASA President John Hoffman, a soybean producer from Waterloo, Iowa, said, “We have made it very clear that ASA views low level tolerances of 0.1 percent as wholly impractical for commodity soybean crop production and imports. Given the complex nature of commodity production and exportation involving millions of metric tons of soybeans grown by hundreds of thousands of growers on millions of acres/hectares, a tolerance of 5 percent should be a minimum starting point.”Hoffman also pointed out that the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development) standards for certified planting seed are set a 99 percent purity level. These rigorous OECD standards have been developed with the strong participation of EU Member State governments and industry to apply to planting seeds, not general commodity production. As such, the required purity standards for commodity imports should be lower (i.e., less than 99 percent purity) than that which the OECD, European governments, and industry have determined should apply to planting seeds.”U.S. soybean growers have exported soybeans to Europe for more than 50 years and want to continue to do so,” Hoffman said. However, both we and our European customers in the feed and farm sectors recognize the urgent need for a sensible solution to the wholly impractical zero tolerance law. This is especially crucial given the increasing number of biotech soybean events that have either gained authorization from functioning regulatory systems in many other countries or are very close to commercialization.”last_img read more

3 kids aided locally in child prostitution raids

first_imgWASHINGTON — Declaring child prostitution a “persistent threat” in America, the FBI said Monday that authorities had rescued 105 young people and arrested 150 alleged pimps in a three-day sweep in 76 cities.More than a dozen state, local and federal agencies in the Vancouver-Portland area searched for individuals profiting from the sexual exploitation of children under Operation Cross Country last week.The FBI credits these local agencies for participating in the operation:o Clark County Juvenile Detention Center.o Vancouver Police Department.Authorities, working with the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, conducted the operation Friday and Saturday and recovered three children, including a baby, in the Vancouver-Portland area. Thirteen adults, likely to face prostitution charges, along with four pimps and a suspected fifth were also arrested.Farther north, three children were recovered and nine adults arrested by authorities in the Seattle-Tacoma-Everett area through the nationally coordinated operation.Each child was provided with counseling, mental health services, medical assistance, housing and advocacy resources by law enforcement and social service providers, according to a news release from the FBI’s Portland division.The young people in the roundup, almost all of them girls, ranged in age from 13 to 17.The largest numbers of children rescued in the operation were in San Francisco, Detroit, Milwaukee, Denver and New Orleans.The operation was conducted under the FBI’s decade-long Innocence Lost National Initiative.

Maj Hasan Evidence will show I am the shooter

first_imgFORT HOOD, Texas — The Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood targeted fellow soldiers in a meticulously planned attack that included stockpiling bullets and researching Taliban leaders calling for jihad, a military prosecutor said Tuesday during the opening day of the long-awaited trial.Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan spent time at a shooting range and purchased a pistol and extender kit to hold more ammunition before carrying out his plan to “kill as many soldiers as he could” while avoiding civilians, Col. Steve Henricks told jurors. The shooting, which killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others on the sprawling Texas military base, remains the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.Henricks alleged that Hasan didn’t want to deploy after getting his orders about three weeks before the shootings, and that “he came to believe he had a jihad duty to murder to his fellow soldiers.” The American-born Muslim later told a doctor at the base that, “`They’ve got another thing coming if they think they are going to deploy me,”‘ Henricks said.But when it came time for him to speak, the 42-year-old Hasan — who is acting as his own attorney — countered prosecutors’ detailed portrait of the attack with a simple statement: “The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter.”In writings and in previous court statements, Hasan indicated he wanted to argue that he carried out the shooting to defend the Taliban from American attacks — but the judge denied that strategy. During his 2-minute opening statement Tuesday, he touched on his religion, saying: “We are imperfect Muslims trying to establish the perfect religion. … I apologize for any mistakes I made in this endeavor.”last_img

Court commissioner bars release of Seattle university shooting video to media

first_imgSEATTLE — A King County Superior Court commissioner on Thursday issued a restraining order barring local media outlets from obtaining a copy of the Seattle Pacific University surveillance video taken when a gunman stormed the campus last month and killed one student and wounded two others.Commissioner Carlos Velategui accused the city’s four TV news stations of seeking the graphic video to boost ratings. One citizen, Arthur West, also put in a public-disclosure request for the video.“What we’re doing here is not of concern to the public,” Velategui said during the hearing. “The only possible interest of the public is their eyes will be glued to the screen to watch someone get shot.”Aaron Rey Ybarra is accused of walking into Otto Miller Hall on the SPU campus on the afternoon of June 5 and shooting three students with a shotgun before he was tackled by 22-year-old student Jon Meiswhile as he paused to reload.In addition to the shotgun, police say, Ybarra was armed with a hunting knife and carried more than 50 rounds of ammunition.Ybarra, 26, of Mountlake Terrace, has pleaded not guilty to one count of premeditated first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of second-degree assault.

Pridemore hired as CEO of mental health services nonprofit

first_imgFormer state senator and recent Clark County commissioner candidate Craig Pridemore has landed a new job as the chief executive officer of Columbia River Mental Health Services. The nonprofit is one of the county’s largest providers in the region of mental health services. In the past, Pridemore has served on its board of trustees and as its interim director. “He has a lot of familiarity with the organization and the issues,” said Jamie Howsley, president of the board of trustees. “The board wanted someone with a strong financial background and also strong ties to the public and political world.”He said the nonprofit is facing changes that will likely impact how it is funded, and Columbia River Mental Health Services needed a “forward-thinking, strategic person that could not only forge relationships within the organization but outside” to face those challenges. Howsley said the whole system of mental health funding is undergoing changes. The nonprofit currently relies on money that comes from the state and is then sent to the county, which doles out contracts to providers. Howsley said that could change, though, and there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding what the new funding structure will look like.last_img read more
