Letter asks USDA for Disaster Declaration for Over Half of Indiana…

first_img Letter asks USDA for Disaster Declaration for Over Half of Indiana Counties Home Indiana Agriculture News Letter asks USDA for Disaster Declaration for Over Half of Indiana Counties Previous articleNPPC Joins in Request for Delay of WOTUS RuleNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Wickard on disater letterIndiana has officially requested that 53 Indiana counties be included in a secretarial disaster declaration by USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack. The request was made by Governor Mike Pence in a letter also signed by Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann and Indiana FSA Executive Director Julia Wickard. Wickard explained what farmers affected by crop damage and losses from this year’s flooding and excessive rain can expect if disaster is declared.“As part of the 2014 farm bill that was passed a part of that language allows that in any county of a secretarial disaster designated county that producers in that county could be eligible for low interest emergency loans.”She said it’s important that there was a joint effort by the state and federal government in making the request. FSA is an agency of USDA. How quickly can the request be granted?“Well we certainly alerted our national office before this process began that we thought we would be seeking some assistance,” she told HAT. “We wanted to give them appropriate notice that something would be coming but we also know that we have areas of the country that are experiencing wildfires and other areas of our Midwest have flooding issues, so we know their hands are full with a lot of different requests that have come in, but I’m confident that we have supplied them the appropriate documentation that we can get something turned around relatively shortly for assistance to be available to our farmers in the state.”In 50 counties, reported crop damage and losses have met or exceeded 30 percent of a crop, and three counties have experienced a significant number of damages and losses to multiple crops. Under the disaster designation, low-interest emergency loans will be made available to all producers suffering losses in that county, as well as in counties contiguous to a disaster-designated county.Wickard encourages farmers to continue to submit crop damage reports to their county FSA offices as the disaster event is ongoing and continued monitoring is necessary to determine if additional counties should be added to the declaration request.“Recent and unprecedented heavy rainfall across our state has had a significant impact on the yield of Indiana crops and our Hoosier farmers,” said Governor Pence. “As promised, our administration has been closely monitoring this situation and, in coordination with the Indiana Farm Service Agency, has determined federal emergency loan assistance is both prudent and warranted. Hoosier farmers can be assured that we will continue to keep a close eye on the long-term effects of this year’s heavy rains and, as needed, work to identify additional help for those in our state’s agriculture industry.”“The record-setting rainfall this summer throughout much of Indiana has caused many Hoosier farmers to experience significant crops losses,” said Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann. “Fields are flooded by overflowing streams or covered by standing water from drenching rain.  We are very grateful for the strong cooperation of the Farm Service Administration in expediting this special Secretarial disaster declaration request.”Indiana counties included are:AdamsAllenBartholomewBlackfordBooneBrownCassClayDearbornDelawareFountainGibsonGrantGreeneHendricksHenryHowardHuntingtonJacksonJasperJayJeffersonJenningsJohnsonKnoxKosciuskoLakeLaPorteMadisonMarionMarshallMiamiMonroeMontgomeryNewtonOhioPikePorterPulaskiPutnamRandolphRipleyScottSt. JosephStarkeSullivanSwitzerlandTippecanoeVigoWabashWashingtonWayneWellsJoe DonnellyAlso Friday Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly, who serves on the Senate Agriculture Committee, sent a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary of Agriculture Thomas Vilsack urging USDA to grant the disaster declaration for 53 of Indiana’s 92 counties impacted by excessive rainfall. Donnelly wrote the letter in strong support of the joint request from the state and Indiana FSA office.Donnelly wrote, “Much of Indiana has experienced excessive and prolonged rainfall, beginning in May and continuing to fall at record-breaking rates through the present. The extreme levels of rain have caused irreparable damage to planted fields and rendered others unplantable throughout the state… Thousands of farmers in Indiana are going to experience significant financial losses this year and this will be a particularly difficult time for young and limited resource farmers. I would appreciate your immediate and favorable consideration of a disaster declaration for these counties so that resources can be made available to help deal with these crops losses.”Donnelly’s letter comes after he visited Merritt Farm in early July in Peru, Indiana, to get a first-hand view of the effect excess rain is having on crops and farmers.Full text of the letter to Secretary Vilsack follows. July 31, 2015The Honorable Thomas J. VilsackSecretary of AgricultureUnited States Department of AgricultureWashington, DC 20250Dear Secretary Vilsack,I am writing to express my strong support for the joint request from Indiana’s Governor, Lt. Governor, and Executive Director of Indiana’s Farm Service Agency for a disaster declaration for 53 of Indiana’s 92 counties. Much of Indiana has experienced excessive and prolonged rainfall, beginning in May and continuing to fall at record-breaking rates through the present.The extreme levels of rain have caused irreparable damage to planted fields and rendered others unplantable throughout the state. Tens of thousands of acres still have living plants, but will only produce a portion of the typical yield due to poor root development and interruptions to fertilizer and herbicide application patterns.Thousands of farmers in Indiana are going to experience significant financial losses this year and this will be a particularly difficult time for young and limited resource farmers. I would appreciate your immediate and favorable consideration of a disaster declaration for these counties so that resources can be made available to help deal with these crops losses.Sincerely,U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 3, 2015 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Freedom of expression is not limited to the freedom to reassure or please readers.” RSF is concerned about the overall situation of the media in Croatia, where journalists are often the victims of harassment or violence, and where defamation, “humiliating” comments, and insulting “the Republic, its emblem, its anthem or its flag” are criminalized.

IS IT TRUE MAY 4, 2017

first_imgIS IT TRUE it looks like were being forced to file a Freedom of Information Request with the city to find out how much are the yearly utilities costs at the Ford Center?  …we shall also ask the powers that be who is responsible for paying for the utilities at the Ford Center?IS IT TRUE we wonder if corporate citizen Vectren could help the Evansville Park and Recreation Department  to replace the damaged and obsolete lighting bollards along the downtown riverfront walkway?IS IT TRUE that this week in Indianapolis Indiana Senate Bill 309 was passed into law?…this law essentially establishes a timeline for changes to net metering practices for electricity in the State of Indiana?…net metering is one of two tools used in states that are concerned with consumers being able generate their own electricity through solar panels or with wind power?…passing this bill follows other jurisdictions in the United States but some believe it signals that the State of Indiana is dedicated to the proposition that all monopolies are created equal and that they have nothing to fear from residents who are interested in making investments in renewable energy on their own properties?…that some believe this is a short-sighted piece of legislation that will blunt the returns of people interested in minimizing their carbon footprint with solar energy for a while yet supporters of the bill believe it provides certainty for those wanting to invest in private generation as they will be grandfathered and receive a very favorable compensation rate for the power they generate for 30 years?…when battery storage prices come down as solar panels have, Hoosiers will have options to decouple from the grid completely?…that customers interested in installing private generation have the next five years to connect their devices and still be grandfathered, like existing net metering customers, at the favorable compensation rate?…. and for those who install after five years will be paid a compensation rate that is a premium price of 25% above the wholesale price for energy?…customers who are considering net metering should act now…the clock is ticking? IS IT TRUE that on the heels of having a regulated utility governed by the Indiana Utilities Regulatory Commission, Vectren is also asking for permission to bill their customers for over $500 Million in capital investments in grid improvement technology?…the price increases associated with this $500 Million increase will come in the form of annual increases in fixed charges over a number of years?…this means if you turn your power off and maintain a connection to Vectren’s grid that you shall not escape the fees?…it is important to realize that the fees will amount to roughly half of what the Billion dollar fix to the Combined Sewer Overflow problem will cost?…between these two increases, one of which is a federal EPA mandate and the other which is has been proposed as system upgrades to ensure reliable electric service, living life in Evansville and its immediate Indiana surroundings is going to be costing several dollars more per month for the average homeowner?…that rising utility costs, healthcare costs, the recently passed gasoline tax and other cost of living pressures will be a challenge for Hoosiers, many of whom are not seeing their monthly incomes keep pace with inflation?IS IT TRUE we have been told by reliable sources that former County Councilman Ed Bassemier is going to run as a Democratic in the upcoming City Council race?  …over the years Mr. Bassemier has proven to be an extremely popular vote getter?  …last year Mr. Bassemier lost re-election to the County Council by only a few votes?  …the main reason why he was defeated was because Republicans running on the national and state ballots had long political coat tails which contributed to his unexpected defeat?  …Mr. Bassemier will be running as a Democrat on the At-Large primary ballot for City Council?  …we would highly recommend that the two (2) At-Large Democratic council members presently serving on City Council beware of a well known political figure named Ed Bassemier?IS IT TRUE another person that shall be running in the At-Large Democratic primary is a highly educated female with good moral compass?…she’s telling people the main reason why she is running for the City Council At-Large seat is to send Jonathan Weaver packing because she feels he lacks the moral compass to serve another term of council?IS IT TRUE we are pleased to hear that the newly elected Democratic party Chairmen of Vanderburgh County, Scott Dank’s just announced that he shall not endorse any political candidates running in the Democratic primary?  …we say; “three cheers for Chairman Dank’s for doing the right thing”?IS IT TRUE we are hearing that some disgruntled voters of the 3rd Ward are looking for a replacement for City Councilwoman Ann Hargis- CPA?  …she promised the 3rd Ward voters if elected to Council she had the educational skills to be a fiscal watchdog for the people of the that area?  …so far she has proven to be a political lap dog for the Mayor and not a fiscal watchdog for the voters of the 3rd Ward? IS IT TRUE Democrat Missy Mosby won her last primary re-election campaign by a mere 12 votes over a little known opponent? …we can’t wait to see how she does against a well funded and known political opponent?  …it looks like Ms. Mosby wii be experiencing the biggest political battle of her career?FOOTNOTES: TODAYS “READERS POLL” question is: Are you disappointed in the Evansville City Council for not being more concerned with the contract between Thunderbolts/VenuWorks and the City?We urge you to take time and click the section we have reserved for the daily recaps of the activities of our local Law Enforcement professionals.

Subway grows with suppliers as its expansion continues

first_imgSandwich chain Subway is predicting it will sell 150 million submarine rolls in the UK and Ireland and in continental Europe in 2006, as its rapid expansion continues.The chain sold 53.3m sticks in its 617 stores in the UK and Ireland in 2005 and 46.6m in its 500 continental European outlets, said Bryan Griffiths, MD of the European Independent Purchasing Company (EIPC), which manages the buying for Subway’s franchises for those markets. “For Subway, 2006 will be all about increasing store numbers and making strides towards our growth goals,” Mr Griffiths stated. “We want to have 2,010 stores in the UK and Ireland by the year 2010.”The sandwich chain sources its bread for the UK and Ireland from frozen and chilled bakery supplier Evron Foods, based in Portadown, Northern Ireland. In the last 12 months, EIPC has enlisted a bakery supplier in Eastern Germany, which supplies all bread to Subway in continental Europe, he said. As the chain grows, EIPC is increasingly working collaboratively with its suppliers, Mr Griffiths added. “We are sharing store and volume growth information with them, developing joint business plans. You can’t hit your stores goal if you don’t get your supply chain right. We need to understand the costs so that everyone in the chain can be profitable.” The company is also making investment decisions with its suppliers, he said. “For example we can tell them that we know that, by 2007, they would need another production line installed to keep up with our projected store growth.” Mr Griffiths told British Baker: “As we are doubling in size, we are finding some suppliers have the capacity to expand and we are growing with them. In other cases, we are bringing other suppliers on.”Subway offers suppliers long-term contracts of between one year and five years as it grows with them, he said. The stability of prices is important, Mr Griffiths said: “We will not change retail prices based on what’s happening in the market.” The EIPC has rolled out centralised leasing, insurance, cleaning chemicals and equipment buying functions to franchisees over the last year, as it cuts costs out of the Subway operation, he added. Mr Griffiths said the key challenges Subway faces in the UK are rising energy and transport costs. He commented: “Energy costs are, without a doubt, a challenge in the UK in particular. Fuel costs are higher and there is more congestion. There is a prevalence of parking fines here, which is reflected in costs.”last_img read more
