Dave NatzkeEditorProgressive DairyEmail Dave Natzkedave@progressivepublish.comadvertisement Read: Dean Foods files Chapter 11 bankruptcy, negotiating with DFA.advertisementadvertisementOnce filing for bankruptcy, financial transactions must be approved by the bankruptcy court. Among the dockets posted, Dean Foods filed a motion seeking permission to pay “critical vendors” to facilitate their ongoing operations.According to a court document (search dockets for #29) filed on Nov. 12, Robert Matson, senior director of dairy procurement for Dean, urged approval of a motion allowing the company to pay dairy farmers for their milk. He noted failure to approve the motion could lead to irreparable harm to its dairy farmer milk suppliers and to Dean as farmers go out of business or leave for any potential alternative milk markets.The docket noted Dean Foods acquires about 85% of its milk from cooperatives and is a single-largest milk buyer for some of those co-ops. The remaining 15% of the milk comes from about 600 independent family dairy farms.In general, Dean Foods pays an advance for milk to be supplied in a given month around the 25th day of that month and then pays the balance owed around the 15th day of the following month.For example, for October 2019, Dean Foods paid advances of $124.2 million on Oct. 25, 2019, and owed approximately $163 million on Nov. 15 for the balance of the payment owed for milk delivered in October 2019.advertisementSources said remaining payments to dairy farmers for October milk deliveries could begin on Nov. 18.The court granted Dean Foods interim approval to access up to $475 million of the $850 million in committed debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing from its lenders, which along with cash on hand and operating cash flows is expected to be sufficient to support the company’s continued operations during this process. Among other things, the court authorized Dean to continue paying employee wages and benefits without interruption and making payments to suppliers and vendors in full under normal terms for goods and services provided on or after Nov. 12, 2019.“We appreciate the swift action by the court to approve these motions, which will enable us to continue operating as normal,” said Eric Beringause, president and CEO of Dean Foods.As of early Nov. 18, more than 205 legal dockets had been filed in the court. Court filings and other information related to the proceedings are available on a separate website administered by the company’s claims agent, Epiq Corporate Restructuring LLC. Additional information is available on the restructuring page of the company’s website.Last week, the Tennessee Farm Bureau provided an advisory to its members who market milk through Dean Foods. The advisory recommended producers should carefully read any communications received from Dean Foods and consider consulting with an attorney and/or professional competent with bankruptcy proceedings. Dean Foods announced that it has received approvals from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas for the “first day” motions related to the company’s voluntary Chapter 11 petitions filed on Nov. 12, 2019. Among those approvals was a motion to pay dairy farmers for milk.
(Photo by Emmele Photography) West Florida softball goes 1-2 in second day Share FLORENCE, Fla. – The University of West Florida softball team went 1-2 in the second day of the weekend’s softball action. The Argonauts started the day off with a 3-2 loss against North Alabama in conference play and then fell to Indianapolis 3-0 in the first game of the UNA Softball Invitational. West Florida bounced back with a comeback win against Truman State after the Argos scored seven runs in the fifth inning to lead them to a 10-7 victory. UWF is now 6-10 on the season and 1-2 in Gulf South Conference play.In the first game, the Argos held a one run lead for most of the game but after a two run home run by the Lions in the sixth inning UNA came out with the 3-2 victory. The Argos were held to only five hits in the game and freshman Rebecca Hein (Vestavia Hills, Ala.) was credited the loss after she went 5.1 innings pitched and gave up three earned runs on eight hits.The Argos would next open up the UNA Softball Invitational against the University of Indianapolis. West Florida struggled to find hits in the game and were held to only one hit. Senior Taylor Bailey (Austin, Tex.) threw a good game for the Argos but earned the loss after UWF failed to produce offensively. Bailey went six innings and only gave up four hits and struck out a career-high 11 batters.West Florida would hope to pick up their first win of the day when they faced Truman State in the final game of the day but another slow start from the plate looked to stop the Argos and UWF quickly fell behind 0-7 in the first four innings. However, West Florida used a seven run fifth inning to tie the game at 7-7. The Argos would then go on to score three runs in the seventh to take the 10-7 victory. Sophomore Lauren Register (Vernon, Fla.) earned the win after she pitched 3.2 innings in relief and held opponents to just one earned run, two hits, and tallied seven strikeouts. Three different Argos had multiple hits in the game, including senior Caroline Kaston (Niceville, Fla.) who went 2-for-5 and totaled three RBI in the game.The Argos will wrap up this weekend’s play when they take on McKendree tomorrow, Feb. 15 in a doubleheader set to begin at 10 a.m. CT.

Masuk dalam Divisi Regional (Divre) III Palembang, stasiun ini tidak melayani penumpang dan rencannya hanya melayani bongkar muat. Pada tahun 2015, PT Kereta Api Logistik (Kalog) akhirnya memutuskan membuka gudang baru di Keramasan sebagai lanjutan dari masterplan.Pembangunan gudang itu sendiri untuk meningkatkan pengangkutan sebesar dua hingga lima juta ton batu bara dan gudang yang berdiri diatas lahan seluas enam hektare tersebut akan terintegrasi dengan moda laut yakni kapal tongkang.Stasiun Keramasan sendiri merupakan stasiun baru yang selesai dibangun pertengahan tahun 2017 kemarin. Meski menjadi stasiun barang, layanan pertama stasiun ini adalah RailClinic, yakni kereta klinik milik PT KAI yang sering melakukan bakti sosial di stasiun-stasiun kecil.Untuk diketahui, pertengah tahun 2018 lalu, Divre III Palembang menggelar bakti sosial dengan pemeriksaan kesehatan gratis di RailClinic yang hadir di Stasiun Keramasan. Kehadiran RailClinic tersebut untuk membantu masyarakat yang tinggal di sepanjang lintasan kereta api.Kepala Divre III Palembang, Hendy Helmy mengatakan, operasional RailClinic akan mulai pukul 08.00 WIB hingga 15.00 WIB. Pelayanan RailClinic sendiri akan hadir di Stasiun Keramasan satu kali dalam tiga bulan.“Paling cepat kita operasional kereta ini kembali paling cepat 2 bulan satu kali dan paling lama tiga bulan satu kali, Rail Clinic ini akan beroperasi bukan hanya di Keramasan saja, akan tetapi di pemukiman masyarakat yang dekat di sepanjang rel,” kata Hendy.Baca juga: Jalur Kereta Lampung-Palembang, Sinergikan Lintasan Penumpang dan BatubaraKehadiran Stasiun Keramasan juga untuk menggantikan kereta batu bara yang berhenti di Stasiun Kertapati.

The borough will introduce the resolution to amend the current policy at their meeting on November 20. If adopted the assembly intends to amend the policy to broaden the scope of eligible invocation providers to better reflect the diversity of beliefs in the borough. The borough has been wrestling with the invocation policy since August 2016 when an invocation invoking the name of Satan was given during an assembly meeting. In 2016 the borough assembly changed their policy in an attempt to be inclusive of all religious groups. However, after an atheist, a member of the Satanic Temple and a member of Homer’s small Jewish community were denied their applications to offer an invocation, the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska took the issue to court. The resolution will look at two major questions; who is allowed to lead an invocation, and should the borough appeal an October court ruling declaring its current invocation policy unconstitutional? Dr. Hamilton spoke at the borough assembly meeting on October 23 saying he agrees with the current policy how it’s written:“On behalf of many faith based groups, churches, and individuals I believe the most recent policy in giving invocations is credible and meets the first amendment clause correctly.” An invocation will be offered at the meeting on November 20 by Dr. Keith Hamilton from Alaska Christian College. In October, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that the borough’s prayer policy violates the State Constitution. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will once again look at a resolution to amend the policy regarding invocations before assembly meetings.
GRENOBLE, France: Goalkeeper Sydney Schneider impressed, though not enough of her teammates did in the end. Head coach Hue Menzies pointed to a lack of self-belief as Jamaica crumbled to a 3-0 defeat to heavyweights Brazil in their first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup match yesterday. Almost 18,000 fans – the majority of them supporting the Reggae Girlz filled the Stade des Alpes on a cloud-filled afternoon, as the Jamaicans struggled to find their rhythm against a Brazilian team that was desperate to get their campaign off to a good start following a run of nine straight losses, stretching back to August 2018. Player of the match Cristiane – a 34-year-old striker from São Paulo – did the damage in the absence of the talismanic Marta, scoring three goals, including a sublime free kick in the 64th minute, to send the South Americans to the top of Group C following Italy’s 2-1 win over Australia in the group’s other game in Valenciennes. Menzies welcomed the lessons from the defeat but believes his players did not back themselves enough throughout the game. He said he is confident, however, that they can make the necessary adjustments to bounce back against Italy on Friday in Reims. TOO MUCH RESPECT “When we first started the game, we showed too much respect for them. We talked about getting after them, getting behind them, and I think in the second half, we improved,” Menzies said after the final whistle. “That second goal came too soon for us when we were trying to push forward. We were getting numbers forward; I think Chinyelu [Asher] came in and settled down the game for us, got us forward a little bit. Defensively, she was much better. Chantelle Swaby also had a great game; I think she covered a lot of ground, and she’s 20 years-old.” STARTED ON THE BACK FOOT Jamaica started the match on the back foot, struggling to clear their lines as the Brazilians looked to establish the tone of the contest after winning four of their 10 corner kicks in quick succession. Andressa’s tight effort from the back post teased the goal before ending up back into the danger area with seven minutes played, and Debinha, who found herself with green grass and the Jamaican custodian between herself and the goal, would have put the Brazilians ahead a few minutes later had it not been for decisive goalkeeping from Schneider, who raced off her line to gather at the toes of the 27-year-old US-based striker. Much of the pre-match commentary centred around prolific Jamaican striker Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw. She got her first sight of goal in the 13th minute but fired straight at goalkeeper Barbara at the near post after cutting inside from the left channel. Just two minutes later, Cristiane would make the Jamaicans pay for that miss, freeing herself from Deneisha Blackwood and captain Konya Plummer in the Jamaican defence and rising high close to the penalty spot to head the ball into the back of the net for her first goal for Brazil since April last year. Ten minutes later, Schneider, who, by all accounts, triggered a Google frenzy in Brazil, and who received praise from her counterpart Barbara, produced another brilliant save, rushing out to close her angles and diving low to keep Debinha off the scoresheet. Barbara also had to earn her per diem in the 30th minute, tipping a ferocious effort from Shaw over the crossbar after the striker collected a sweet pass from Havana Solaun in stride before letting fly. Schneider, 19, was again called upon to save the Jamaicans, this time from the penalty spot, extending herself to the right to somehow get her gloves on Andressa’s spot kick after German referee Riem Hussein pointed to the spot for a handled ball by Allyson Swaby. The Brazilians would, however, get their second in the 50th minute, and again, it was Cristiane who arrived sliding in at the back post to convert a shot-turned-cross from the right side despite the desperate efforts of Plummer. Cristiane and Brazil’s third arrived in the 64th minute from a centrally positioned free kick just outside the penalty box. It was really after conceding a third goal that the Jamaicans came out of their shell, closing down play with more fervour and running at their opponents with more purpose. Still, the young Schneider was forced into another save before the final whistle, showing good reflexes to deny substitute Geyse with another big stop. “I believe I had a few really good saves, but there were also three goal,s so I wish I could have helped my team some more, but I was just doing my job and being there for my team,” Schneider offered. Menzies is expecting his team to react against the Italians and believes that the jitteriness of playing in their first match at this level has now subsided. “Overall, we have a lot of lessons to learn from this game, and we have to go back to the drawing board and get things right for the next game,” said Menzies. “We just have to fix the things that are fixable. Some of the mistakes today are fixable. It’s their first game of the World Cup ever, and that was a tight squeeze on some of these kids. We got through this game, we got the first game behind us, and now we have to look forward to the next game. “We have been in this situation before where we had a big game that we had to get results,” he added. The Reggae Girlz’s journey to this point has been one filled with adversities. They must show some of that resolve if they are to really make an impression here and meet their target of advancing from the group.
