Indiana Loses National Soybean Leader and Farmer

first_img Indiana Loses National Soybean Leader and Farmer Facebook Twitter SHARE Jim Schriver passes at 73A longtime leader in Indiana agriculture passed away unexpectedly Monday, and he leaves many current board members of the Indiana Soybean Alliance and other farmers missing their reliable sounding board. Jim Schriver farmed near Bluffton and he died at the age of 73.“Not only in Indiana but from coast to coast, Jim was a great statesman for soybeans and all commodities,” said Dave Lowe, the current president at Indiana soybean. He spoke with HAT from his combine Wednesday. “He was involved in animal agriculture as well. He’ll be dearly missed, a wealth of knowledge and experience.”Schriver was serving his second term as a director for the United Soybean Board and he was president of the Indiana Soybean Board in 2004 and 2005. It was then that he started the task force to merge the two soybean organizations at that time, the Indiana Soybean Growers Association and the Indiana Soybean Board, into what is now the Indiana Soybean Alliance.Lowe told HAT Schriver was a great statesman because of his uncanny ability to communicate about the business of agriculture.“Obviously Jim had a way with words for whatever audience was in front of him, whether that be a fellow farmer or a senator. And Jim had such a wealth of information that he could speak intelligently on any different topic.”Lowe said Schriver was a master at being politely persuasive, and always with the facts. He was always prepared and that’s the greatest lesson Lowe learned.“One thing I learned from Jim especially is that your opportunity to speak will come. Just make sure you’re ready and make sure you’ve got the right facts. He will be dearly missed, no question.”Jim Schriver is survived by his wife Jayne, and leaves the farm in the hands of his two grandsons. Visitation is Friday and prior to a Celebration of Life service on Saturday.

The bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Aniruddha Roy ordered thus after noting that current mental age in terms of intellectual functioning of the Man is around 9 years and 9 months. The bench was hearing the case of one Dipak Joshi, who was arrested on 12th May 1980 and has already undergone a period of more than 40 years in custody. Nepali Man In Custody For 40 Years: Calcutta High Court To Examine If The Prosecution Be Terminated In Suo Moto Proceedings On the basis of the materials on record, the Court observed that after the assessment of his mental status (sometime in January 1982) when he was found to be not mentally fit to stand trial, there had been no contrary report at any point of time even as of now before the Court of Session where the case is pending trial. Thus, in the exercise of authority under Section 482 of Cr.P.C. and Articles 226 and 227 of the Constitution of India, the Court ordered his release after noting, “In the aforesaid view of the matter, we do not see that any useful purpose will subserve the ends of justice by continuing to detain UTP Dipak Joshi @ Jaisi @ Jaishi in the Correctional Home.” The Court ordered that the Man (housed in Dum Dum Correctional Home) in connection with Sessions Case No.31 of 1981 in the First Additional District & Sessions Judges, Darjeeling is released from the Correctional Home and entrusted to the custody of Prakash Chandra Sharma Timsina. “It is impossible and impermissible to direct the UTP to execute any bond in view of the deficit in his mental capacity. Ends of justice will be satisfied if his release is supported by a simple bond executed by the aforementioned, Prakash Chandra Sharma Timsina in favour of the Registrar General of this Court undertaking to produce the UTP as and when directed by this Court”, the Court added. Lastly, the Court directed all Statutory Authorities to facilitate the transit of UTP Dipak Joshi @ Jaisi @ Jaishi to Nepal under the aegis of the Consulate General of Nepal in India at Kolkata upon his release.

Skanky food sees Chinese fined

first_imgAn Oxford restaurant has been fined £17,000 for the filthy conditions in which its food was prepared. The Liasion Chinese Restaurant in Castle Street was reviewed favourably by Cherwell just two weeks ago, which admired its “mess and fun.” Upon hearing about the prosecution one student regular vowed never to eat there again, despite promises from the management that standards had long since improved. Environmental Health Officers inspecting the establishment in July 2003 found numerous serious breaches of Food Safety Requirements. Cooked egg fried rice, cooked noodles and pork meat were being stored outside in an alleyway, with no protection from contamination. Mould and cobwebs were found on the roof covering this food. Inside the restaurant the walls were smeared with grease and the floor covers were torn and hard to clean. A set of cracked, broken weighing scales and a rusty tray were used for food preparation and storage. Charles Tsang, owner of the restaurant, pleaded guilty to seven offences under food safety regulations. He was charged £17,000 and ordered to pay £2,000 court costs. Tsang, who has extensive business intersts in Oxford, told Cherwell that hygiene had long since greatly improved: “I am the Managing Director of the company, and I sacked the manager of the restaurant on the day of the inspection. We’ve changed a lot since then and they wouldn’t prosecute me now.” He was also keen to point out that he was very wellknown and respected in the Chinese food trade. Questioned about the financial implications of the hefty fine, Tsang said that he was seeking new legal advice. “I don’t want to say anything yet,” he said, “but I may fight back.” The damage to the restaurant may be even more costly. One Christ Church undergraduate, said that he was “very, very shocked” by the news. “I used to go there a lot with my parents,” he said, “I won’t now.” This publication had no such reservations. Just two weeks ago Cherwell extolled the virtues of this small restaurant. “It is so refreshing to find a restaurant in Oxford that is truly authentic,” it was decided. “Socially this is top draw; with lots of mess and fun.”ARCHIVE: 3rd week TT 2004last_img read more

Speech: David Mundell addresses Cycle to Syracuse participants in New York

first_img“As I said when we hosted a reception at Edinburgh Castle a couple of weeks ago, Colin and I met over a year ago at the King’s Arms hotel in Lockerbie and to come from the King’s Arms in Lockerbie to the centre of New York City is quite something. I’m sure they do have some similarities but I’m not sure what they obviously are at this moment.“I am tremendously supportive of this initiative. I think it is really really important that not only do we respect and pay homage to the families of the 270 people who lost their lives on the 21st December 1988 and everybody else who has been caught up in those events over the last 30 years but also that we do look forward. That’s very much what the Cycle to Syracuse has been about. It is about combining those two important elements, remembrance, respect and looking forward and strengthening and deepening our relationship and friendship with Syracuse University, with the wider community there and indeed with all relatives of the 270 victims. I’m really pleased this year to learn the ribbon ceremony which I am hoping to be part of tomorrow that there will be ribbon for each of the 270 victims because to me Syracuse University has become so much an emotional centre for those events. A place of comfort for relatives and a place where people can reflect on those events but also for new and positive relationships, new friendships and I think that is a really really important role that Syracuse is playing.“I do feel a little bit of a fraud in relation to the efforts of the guys because I waved them off in Lockerbie on a very wet day and then I met them again at Edinburgh Castle never having set foot on a peddle. I’m here at this halfway point in the journey likewise never having set foot on a peddle and I know you’ve done the hard work. I know from the reports back from Oliver how well received you’ve been by relatives, by friends, by people who want to know more about these events and want to make sure that they are marked in a proper and respectful way.“I think this Cycle to Syracuse will have been for many very cathartic in terms of just being able to deal with issues, of being able to speak about some of those events. I know back home in Lockerbie, speaking to some people before I came out, for some people this is the first time in 30 years they have been able to speak about events which happened to them that night or immediately thereafter. I think that that is a really positive thing, an opportunity for people really to, as I say, in terms of the Syracuse motto, look back but act forward.“I think that the cycle has done something on so many different levels. It has been an appropriate and respectful marking of the 30th anniversary of these events. It has been an opportunity for the community in Lockerbie to move forward to a certain extent. It has been an opportunity to strengthen and deepen our friendship with Syracuse University. It has been an opportunity to celebrate the 58 young people from Lockerbie who have already had the opportunity to come to Syracuse and look forward to many more coming to the university. I want myself without having any focussed thought to use it as an opportunity to strengthen those bonds between our community, Syracuse and indeed the friends and families of all of the 270 victims.“On that basis it gives me a great deal of pleasure to wave the guys off on this next leg. I’m heading myself up to Syracuse but because we need to ensure that the UKG has a budget I will require to return before you arrive unless you’re extremely speedy and move ahead of schedule.“I just want to conclude by saying it has been an honour and privilege and I know my son Oliver who is our MSP, Lockerbie member of the Scottish Parliament shares this, it has been an honour and a privilege for me to associated with this project. It really really has. So thank you guys. “last_img read more
