Dear Editor:Since January of this year, there has been serious erosion of civil rights in our nation. The Republican president, unchallenged by the Republican majority in congress which has quietly sat by as the following occurred:Muslims were targeted for travel, legal permanent residents were detained from returning home, transgender military members were banned by the president from serving, the Justice Department tried to remove protections for LGBT citizens, the Education Department ordered reducing protections for victims of sex abuse on college campuses, bills to destroy health care were introduced. The president said that some of those who marched among Neo-Nazis in Virginia are “fine people” and he ordered the “Dream Act” suspended for almost one million residents. Rather than support millions of Americans in Puerto Rico, faced with the worst disaster in their history, this president would rather fight with sports teams.In almost all cases, the Republican majority in congress said nothing, in effect, agreeing with the president.In our upcoming elections we have seven candidates who have been identified as Republican: Joshua Einstein, Michael Flett, Jen Giattino, Jason Ellis, Laini Vogel-Hammond, Angelo Valente and Karen Nason.While our election is non-political, can any thinking Hoboken voter support people who are members of the party of hate? We have to think that if they were in congress, they would support the ugly agenda of the president and his cabinet. And what would be their agenda if elected to office in our city?I call upon my friends and neighbors to vote against these individuals and to support non-Republican candidates. Sincerely,Alan H. Cohen
Warburtons has announced a long-term extension to its UK milling wheat contract with farmer-owned business Openfield, as it continues to maintain its support of British wheat.The extension of the contract, now in its 12th year, will see the supply agreement reach its 18th year, and will be worth an additional £140m to British wheat farmers. The contract has already been worth £172m to Openfield members – with over one million tonnes of contracted wheat delivered for Warburtons flour – and is expected to rise to £312m before the end of 2016.“Top-quality milling wheat and traceability are at the heart of both our bread-making process and British farming, so we are delighted to announce this contract renewal,” commented Warburtons’ group purchasing director Bob Beard.Openfield group commercial director Graham Lacey added: “Many farmers have been committed to producing Warburtons’ wheat since the contract began; this has helped them to secure some exceptional returns from their wheat.“The contract is, however, about far more than just volume, as we’ve worked together to ensure that not only fair prices have been paid to growers each year, but also that as much as possible of the contracted wheat can be used by Warburtons – even during more difficult harvests.”Any growers interested in supplying Warburtons as part of the new contract should contact their Openfield farm business manager.
