Bi-Lateral Negotiations Labeled “Frank and Good” by Japan Economy Minister

Mary Kay Thatcher with Syngenta Government Relations told Hoosier Ag Today why a deal with Japan is so critical.“Japan is such an important market and with Japan cutting a deal with the Europeans, we already know if we look at markets like wheat and dairy that they’re going to move away from the US to these places where there are no tariffs simply because it’s a better financial deal. So, I think the administration understands that.”President Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on his first day in office. The new TPP that excluded the U.S. was enacted in December of last year. USDA Under Secretary for Trade Ted McKinney on the current relationship between the U.S. and Japan.“I’ve been there several times and I know the relationship between our countries, generally speaking, is very strong. It is very strong. It’s like a blood brother or a blood sister; that’s tough to separate them. If we can come to an agreement sooner than later, I think we can avoid loss of market that’s the result of TPP being enacted.”There were no official statements released after day one of talks on Monday, but Japan’s Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi told reporters that most of the three-hour meeting with Lighthizer was “frank and good”, and mostly centered on goods.All this with Japan amid trade negotiations with China that are reportedly progressing. There remains debate though about the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement.In testimony to Congress in February, Lighthizer warned, “There is no trade program in the United States if we don’t pass USMCA. There just isn’t one. What it says is that we don’t have a consensus and that we don’t want to stand up for our workers and our farmers and ranchers. I think there’s no less than that at stake.”He added that there would be no credibility with China, or any other trading partner, if USMCA does not pass.

Trial for Lansing man charged with rape to begin this week

Contact her at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @bykelseyoconnor. More by Kelsey O’Connor Tagged: Matthew Pinney, Scott Walters, Tompkins County Court A trial has been delayed while the appellate court decided who should prosecute the case: Tompkins County District Attorney Matthew Van Houten or Joseph Fazzary, district attorney for Schuyler County. The case was initially assigned to a special prosecutor due to a potential conflict of interest of the Tompkins County District Attorney’s Office prosecuting a sheriff’s deputy who regularly worked with the office, court records state.Attorney Edward Kopko, who is representing Pinney, argued in an appeal that a special prosecutor should not have been assigned, but the court did not agree. In January, an appeals court ruled that Fazzary’s appointment was appropriate.Walters has been on paid administrative leave since the initial charges in December 2017, according to Sheriff Derek Osborne. According to SeeThroughNY, which lists the salaries of public officials, Walters made $71,727 in 2018.Pinney and Walters are technically charged under different indictments and will therefore have separate trials, but each indictment alleges that they acted with the assistance of the other defendant, according to Fazzary. He said Walters is expected to face trial in September.Jury selection in Pinney’s trial begins at 8:30 a.m. Thursday at the Tompkins County Courthouse. ITHACA, N.Y. — The trial for Matthew Pinney, who was indicted in late 2017 on charges of rape and sexual assault, begins Thursday with jury selection in Tompkins County Court. Pinney will stand trial for rape along with Tompkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Walters, who will face a separate trial later this year, for an incident that allegedly occurred at Walters’ residence in 2013.Pinney and Walters’ cases are finally moving forward after an appeal was denied earlier this year. Though the case involves Tompkins County defendants, it will move forward with a special prosecutor from neighboring Schuyler County, District Attorney Joseph Fazzary. A special prosecutor was assigned due to Walters’ status as a Tompkins County deputy.On the left is Deputy Scott Walters while Matthew Pinney is on the right. (Provided photos in 2017)Pinney and Walters were charged in December 2017, but the charges stem from an investigation into an incident on Feb. 2, 2013. According to the accusations in court records, the two men allegedly raped and sexually assaulted a woman who could not consent “by reason of being physically helpless” while at Walters’ home in Lansing. According to court documents, the woman had a sexual assault evidence collection kit done after the incident because she believed she’d been drugged. The men have denied the claims against them.Related: Court documents: Tompkins deputy accused of rape appeared ‘visibly nervous,’ denied claims last_img read more

I told him I was sure I could get $8 for it and his response was that he should have just taken it when he saw it sitting outside the store.

We greatly need and appreciate those donations. But, there are some people who undoubtedly think since the items are donated, they can just come by and take them.”May said taking the donations that are left outside the building on weekends and at night is stealing and is taking money from those the Salvation Army is trying to help.
