Soy Growers Praise Biodiesel Support from Farm State Senators

first_imgAmerican Soybean Association (ASA) President Ray Gaesser, a farmer from Corning, Iowa, praised Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), for speaking up in support for biodiesel. In a press conference on Wednesday, the senators highlighted the need for reinstatement of the biodiesel tax credit and for EPA to increase the proposed 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volumes for biodiesel. The senators, and others representing biodiesel and feedstock producers, outlined the negative impact that the lapse of the credit has had on the burgeoning industry and the additional uncertainty resulting from the EPA’s 2014 RFS proposal. Gaesser had this to say on the issue:“The biodiesel industry is a significant and growing market for the soybeans my fellow farmers and I produce, and for many years, we’ve been working with the recognition and the investment of our federal partners in the form of the Biodiesel Tax Credit. Now in the absence of that incentive, many of our producers are scaling back their production and risk hampering the broad and sustained success of the biodiesel industry.”We appreciate and echo the sentiments from these six Senators today, and call to attention the positive impacts that the RFS and the Biodiesel Tax Credit has on the production of biodiesel—a clean, domestic and commercially-available biofuel. This results in benefits to farmers and rural communities, the economy, consumers, and the environment.“So many in Congress and in the Administration talk about exploring all options in our nation’s quest for energy independence, yet we are hampering those viable solutions created by farmers right here at home. Thank you to those Senators who have realized and stood up for the potential of biodiesel in this effort. Our industry will continue to pursue our goal of establishing biodiesel as the go-to source for clean, domestic renewable energy and we urge each of our members to contact their Senator to support the continuation of the Biodiesel Tax Credit and the adjustment of the RFS to higher levels in 2014 and beyond.”last_img read more

Senators to Froman Push EU on Ag Barriers in TTIP

first_imgA bipartisan group of senators last week urged U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman to ensure the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) included a strong framework for agriculture, including resolution on both tariff and non-tariff barriers.The U.S. market share is increasingly deteriorating due to tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade in the EU—one of our most significant trading markets and top importer of food and agriculture products. In 2015, the U.S. had a $16 billion surplus in agricultural trade globally, yet in the EU, U.S. agricultural exports saw a record $12 billion trade deficit. T-TIP would help expand U.S. agriculture exports in the EU.“A final agreement that does not include a strong framework for agriculture could have a negative impact on Congressional support for this deal. It is imperative that tariff elimination on all products – including beef, pork, poultry, rice, and fruits and vegetables – remain a priority,” the senators state in the letter. “The EU must be willing to work towards liberalization in all sectors of agriculture. A premature conclusion of the T-TIP negotiations threatens to undermine the negotiating position of the U.S. in resolving long­ standing regulatory barriers such as hormone use in U.S. beef, maximum residue limits in fruits and vegetables, and dairy certification requirements.”The senators also point to the EUs failure to approve imports of new biotech products in a timely manner.“Approvals of some products have been delayed even after positive evaluations by the European Food Safety Agency, and currently there are at least three products that have been awaiting import approval since 2011 and 2012. The inability to implement existing regulations and provide certainty based on sound science related to agriculture policies raises questions about the success of new obligations and commitments established in the T-TIP,” the letter states. (Click here to read the entire letter).The American Soybean Association (ASA) supports negotiation of T-TIP between the EU and U.S., provided such an agreement takes into account the unique needs of soybean farmers and works to eliminate barriers to agricultural trade in Europe and establishes an aggregate approach for certifying U.S. compliance with the sustainable land use requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED).last_img read more

EPA Announces Biodiesel and Advanced Biofuels Volumes

first_imgThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that the biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuels volumes will be increased above previous year levels, which is good news for the soybean industry. The increase, however, is mitigated by the absence of reallocation of the significant gallons that were waived under exemptions issued previously by EPA to refineries.The final rule sets the 2020 requirement for biomass-based biodiesel (BBD) volumes at 2.43 billion gallons, a 330-million-gallon increase over the 2018 and 2019 levels. Total advanced biofuel volumes, which are largely filled by biodiesel, are increased to 4.92 billion gallons.American Soybean Association (ASA) President John Heisdorffer, a soybean producer from Keota, Iowa, acknowledged the progress, saying, “We welcome this increase, as it helps a growing market for soybean oil. We are glad to see EPA acknowledge that biodiesel can play a larger role in our nation’s fuel supply.”While ASA appreciates the increased biomass-based diesel volumes for 2020, Heisdorffer reiterated the ability and capacity for additional growth. “As ASA communicated to EPA during the rulemaking process, soybean farmers and our biodiesel industry partners can meet these targets, and we have the production capacity and feedstock to reasonably achieve even further growth.”ASA and its biodiesel industry partners also remain concerned that EPA has not reallocated the previous year volumes that have been waived through exemptions granted to refineries by EPA. The agency’s data shows that the retroactive small refinery exemptions reduced demand for biodiesel by more than 300 million gallons in 2018.“The biodiesel industry supports agriculture by creating jobs, diversifying fuel sources, and reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil. EPA is moving in a better direction, but we urge the Administration to address the waived volumes and support the full potential of U.S. soybean farmers and biodiesel producers.”last_img read more

Man charged with assault of monthold son

first_imgA Vancouver man is in jail for allegedly assaulting his month-old son in September.Byron S. Frazier, 37, was arrested Nov. 16 on a warrant alleging second-degree assault of a child. He made his first appearance and was arraigned the following day. Clark County Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis set bail at $20,000 and appointed attorney David Kurtz to represent him.Trial was set for Jan. 10.Investigators were called to Southwest Washington Medical Center in the early morning of Oct. 1 after Frazier and his son’s mother rushed their baby to the emergency room with bruising and swelling on his body, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed by Deputy Prosecutor Scott Jackson. Jackson said the injuries were not life-threatening.A detective said the baby, Zaden, who was born on Aug. 27 and was 34 days old at the time of the assault, had a large bruise on his abdomen in the shape of an adult hand. He also had bruising and swelling in his genital area, the detective said.When questioned by a detective, Frazier said he was watching his son at a residence in the 4300 block of East 17th Street the previous evening, when he placed the baby on a couch to get a clean diaper, according to the affidavit. When he returned, he saw Zaden falling off the couch and ran to grab him to prevent him from hitting the floor.Emergency room doctors said Frazier’s account wasn’t consistent with the infant’s injuries.Later, Frazier wanted to talk with the detective again, confessing that he had an anger and drug problem and had allegedly slapped his oldest son several years ago but was never investigated, according to the affidavit.last_img read more

Lawmakers wrap up session chip away at deficit

first_imgOLYMPIA — State lawmakers wrapped up their special session work Wednesday, chipping away at the state’s $1.4 billion shortfall even though Gov. Chris Gregoire had called for them to cut deeper.The Legislature adjourned shortly after the Senate approved the new budget plan by a 42-6 vote. Gregoire had called for $2 billion in changes and a fully revamped budget by Christmas, but lawmakers settled on a plan that provides a $480 million fix through a combination of cuts, transfers and delayed payments.Budget negotiators said it was impossible to get full consensus on a plan during a session that would last a maximum of 30 days. “We did the best we can in a very short period of time to craft something that we can get agreement on,” Sen. Joe Zarelli, R-Ridgefield, said.Democratic Sen. Ed Murray said the pact provides a down payment on the problem and will allow lawmakers to deal more quickly with the spending plan in the new year. He said he was willing to take any blame from those who might argue that the Legislature didn’t do enough.“We got some important things accomplished,” said Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane. “We haven’t solved the whole problem. The more difficult decisions are still ahead of us.”last_img read more

Reports NY in hunt for Azalea computer plant

first_imgALBANY, N.Y. — Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday he may soon make a major economic announcement for upstate New York, as published reports said a computer plant code-named Project Azalea was in negotiations to create 1,000 jobs. Numerous reports have speculated that competition for that plant was between Oregon and New York, with some early speculation that the WaferTech site in Camas was a possible contender.“I don’t know if it will come to fruition or not,” Cuomo said Wednesday at a news conference. But “we may come up with a big economic development piece.”Cuomo, a Democrat, refused to say anything about the project at which he hinted. He said he has assigned top staffers to the issue. On the task are Secretary to the Governor Larry Schwartz, who is Cuomo’s top representative, and Budget Director Robert Megna, who could create a tax-incentive deal.In February, The Oregonian newspaper quotedOregon’s economic development director as saying that state was competing with upstate New York and other states for Project Azalea. Camas was considered a possible site because of industry speculation that WaferTech’s parent company, Taiwan Silicon Manufacturing Co., was considering construction of a new fabrication plant. While TSMC’s plans for a possible new plant in Camas are not known, it now appears that possible expansion in Camas is unrelated to Project Azalea.The Oregonian said New York was offering “tens of millions” of dollars to win Project Azalea, a tax package Oregon probably couldn’t match.last_img read more

Health homes Effort aims to improve care for Medicaid clients save money

first_imgState health officials have launched a new array of services for Medicaid patients with complex medical needs.The goal is to not only improve those individuals’ care and health outcomes, but to also save the state money by reducing the number of preventive hospitalizations and emergency room visits, said MaryAnne Lindeblad, Medicaid director for the Washington State Health Care Authority, which oversees the program.About 62,700 people across the state — including about 4,100 Clark County residents — are eligible for the new program, called “health homes.”Contrary to the name, health homes aren’t actually brick-and-mortar homes. Instead, they’re a collection of services administered by state-selected companies.Health homes are designed for individuals with chronic illnesses who are at significant risk for health problems that lead to unnecessary use of hospitals and other expensive institutional settings. The Health Care Authority uses a risk modeling system to identify those who are at significant risk.Essentially, the health homes coordinate and manage the many services — physical health, behavioral health and substance abuse treatment — those individuals need, Lindeblad said.An example of a person who would qualify for the services is a middle-aged individual with diabetes and hypertension and who has been diagnosed schizophrenic. He or she would have many health care needs being met by more than one delivery system and would also likely be in and out of the hospital because his or her diabetes is unstable.“It’s somebody who has pretty complex behavioral and physical health issues,” Lindeblad said.To be eligible for health homes, individuals must also be eligible for Medicaid, or both Medicaid and Medicare.The program is a component of the Affordable Care Act, which gave states the option to provide the new service to Medicaid clients. The program launched in Clark County and 13 other Washington counties on July 1 and will roll out in most other counties later this year.Currently, the federal government and the state government split the cost of Medicaid services about 50-50. Through the Affordable Care Act, the federal government will boost its share to 90 percent for the first two years of the new program. After two years, the split returns to 50-50, Lindeblad said.last_img read more

Woodland man arrested in connection with child sex crime investigation

first_img Police arrested a Woodland man and former Vancouver school janitor Friday evening on suspicion of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. Robert Leonard, 58, allegedly talked online and on the phone, and exchanged photos, with a minor who lives in Robertsdale, Pa., according to Woodland police Sgt. Brad Gillaspie. The victim was 13 when the alleged communication started.Police say that during their investigation, Leonard admitted to having sexual relationships with at least two boys from the Vancouver area. Both relationships began when the boys were 13, and they would now be age 16 and age 18 or 19. Leonard worked as a janitor for Vancouver Public Schools, working on a custodial support team at various district locations, but he is no longer employed by the district, said district spokeswoman Kris Sork.He was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail and is expected to make his first appearance in court Monday.

Group cites police killings in support of I594

first_imgSEATTLE — A group pushing an initiative that would require background checks for private gun sales in Washington state released a study Friday finding that many of the police deaths here since 1980 have come at the hands of people legally prohibited from having firearms.Everytown for Gun Safety said it used FBI data and news stories to review the 32 killings. Four officers were shot with their own weapons. Of the remaining 28, at least 17 were killed by people likely prohibited from having firearms because of criminal histories, serious mental illness or past domestic violence, the report said.The group isn’t suggesting that Initiative 594 would have prevented all of those deaths because some of the guns used had been stolen and it’s not clear how many of the shooters obtained the weapons.But supporters said it could prevent some questionable transactions and make it more difficult for criminals to get guns. They pointed an earlier review of FBI statistics showing that the 16 states that require background checks for private gun sales have lower rates of police being killed by weapons that aren’t their own. Under federal law, background checks through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, known as NICS, are required for purchasing firearms from licensed gun dealers, but not at gun shows or for private transactions. I-594 would require that such sales or other transfers be conducted at a licensed dealer, with background checks being conducted as if the licensed dealer were selling the weapon.last_img read more

Bryan wins top award Lambert shines at CMAs

first_imgNASHVILLE, Tenn. — Miranda Lambert was the reigning queen of Wednesday’s Country Music Association Awards, but Luke Bryan marked a long-earned breakthrough by winning entertainer of the year.The win was Bryan’s first CMA, despite his multiple hits, top-selling albums and top-grossing tours.“Well, first of all, I never met Garth. Hey Garth,” Bryan said, hugging the legend, who presented the top award.“I hope I can have enough time to say everything that’s on my mind,” an emotional Bryan said, thanking God, his fans, and his teary-eyed wife in the audience at the Bridgestone Arena. “I have some angels in heaven, my brother and sister are making this night possible for me.”Wednesday night marked a breakthrough for Bryan, who was also snubbed at the recent Grammy Awards.Still, Lambert, who was nominated in nine categories, was the night’s big winner: The fiery singer took home four trophies, including album of the year for “Platinum” and single of the year for “Automatic.” She stole the night with fashion choices that were winners, too, and performances. She sang twice onstage, including a country-tinged version of “All About That Bass” with breakthrough singer Meghan Trainor, where Shelton looked up and bopped his head.Lambert won her fifth consecutive female vocalist of the year, and Shelton repeated the record for male vocalist of the year.“Let me just say that before I say, I really thought Luke was going to win this,” he said. “This means so much to me … this is a big night for my family.”The night featured a number of collaborative performances: Shelton sang with Ashley Monroe; the Doobie Brothers performed with Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes; George Strait and Eric Church performed “Cowboys Like Us”; and pop diva Ariana Grande sported a mini top and skirt as she sang the hit “Bang Bang” alongside Little Big Town, who won vocal group of the year.last_img read more

Fort Vancouver alumnus travels with Clowns Without Borders

Everett St. Learn more at www.clownswithoutborders.org.• Read more about Curtis Carlyle’s and Clowns Without Borders’ Project Haiti 2014: www.clownswithoutborders.org/project/project-haiti-2014.As he traveled through devastated parts of Haiti in the company of charitable clowns, Curtis Carlyle had nothing to give but joy.Because he knows that food and medicine might heal the body, but a smile can soothe the soul.The 34-year-old professional juggler and Fort Vancouver High School graduate traveled to Haiti for two weeks in November on his first trip with the international nonprofit Clowns Without Borders, which sends performers to crisis areas with the mission of bringing some happiness to the communities there. While other relief organizations fulfill the important function of helping places such as post-earthquake Haiti rebound by providing supplies and aid, the comic entertainers who volunteer with Clowns Without Borders strive to bring a different kind of relief: a burst of light in dark times. What Carlyle experienced during his trip across Haiti with fellow clowns, artists and musicians touched his heart.“It was eye-opening. It was great to see the ways that other people live and adapt and survive in the world,” said Carlyle, who now lives in Portland and has performed thousands of times in myriad settings including a Broadway production, at corporate gigs and for charity. “It was very nice to see so many people who appreciated clowning and juggling.”Donning a red leather nose to match his light red hair and bushy mustache, Carlyle entertained children and others in need of a laugh at various stops in Haiti, using juggling and comedy skills he’s been perfecting ever since deciding to become a performer in his early 20s.last_img read more

Clark County mulls charter implementation

first_imgClark County councilors on Wednesday delayed action on a proposed agreement on how to implement the new form of government voters approved last year.Meanwhile, the document’s author, Councilor David Madore, said the proposal is intended to outline how county leaders will work together to implement the charter in an orderly way — not to complicate or undermine the process.“It’s meant to convey a spirit of cooperation,” Madore said.Voters approved a home-rule charter form of government in November. Among other changes, the charter will replace the three county commissioners with a five-member council, and shift executive authority to the county manager. Some of those changes, including the transfer of executive power, already took effect Jan. 1. Two additional councilors will be elected later this year.Madore first floated his “charter implementation process agreement” last month. The proposal describes how “the council, with input from the county manager, will develop an orderly process” to make all necessary changes to county rules and ordinances and complete the transition by next year. At the bottom of the document are spaces for the signatures of all three county councilors and Acting County Manager Mark McCauley.The proposal has been viewed warily by charter supporters. In a lengthy response sent to county councilors, county resident Chuck Green noted that the agreement takes the form of a contract, which could violate the charter’s separation of the executive and legislative branches. The proposal also locks out the two future council members who won’t be seated until 2016, Green wrote.last_img read more
