DETROIT – Chrysler Group will offer some of its 49,600 hourly U.S. workers at select plants up to $100,000 to leave the company as part of a recovery plan announced earlier this month. The company, which lost $1.475 billion in 2006 and said it expects losses to continue through 2007, said on Feb. 14 that it intends to shed 13,000 jobs, including 11,000 hourly positions and 2,000 salaried, as it tries to further shrink itself to match reduced demand for its products. A company document obtained by The Associated Press outlines an early retirement program for those near retirement age and a buyout program for those with at least one year of seniority with the company. The offers were reported earlier Tuesday by The Detroit News. Under the buyout offer, workers would receive a pretax lump-sum payment of $100,000 plus six months of medical and vision coverage in exchange for their departure. The early retirement package includes a $70,000 payment, health care benefits and whatever pension a worker was eligible for based on age and years of service. According to the document, the United Auto Workers union and DaimlerChrysler AG’s Chrysler Group reached agreement on the offers, which are not as lucrative as some made to workers leaving Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. under restructuring plans. “UAW members are once again stepping forward to make hard choices,” union President Ron Gettelfinger said in a statement. “Now it’s up to DaimlerChrysler to move the company forward, by using the skill and dedication of our members to deliver quality vehicles that customers want to buy.” The offers come as Chrysler tries to reduce production by 400,000 vehicles per year. Early retirement and buyout offers will go to facilities targeted for cuts, including a plant scheduled for closure in Newark, Del. Depending on how many take the offers, Chrysler could make more at plants not affected by production cuts. Of the production job cuts, 9,000 are in the U.S. and 2,000 are in Canada. All the cuts will take place during the next three years. Chrysler’s 10,060 Canadian workers were given separate offers earlier this month.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Early marketing studies by Cook Hill have found that single-family detached homes would be the most profitable for the city. Rogers said estimates of the proposed 1,000 residential units that PXP plans to build on the property will generate anywhere from $5 million to $7 million annually in redevelopment revenues . The market prices for the homes, depending on their size, are estimated to range from $400,000 to $2 million, Witt said. There will be no affordable housing as part of the project because the city has an excess of affordable housing, he added. “There are other places in the city for \ housing,” he said. Residents expressed concern about increased traffic that the new homes would generate. “I question the traffic study that’s been presented,” said Linda Strong, co-chair of the Save the Montebello Hills Sierra Club Task Force. “We have gridlock now. There’s going to be more on San Gabriel Boulevard, which will upset people in Rosemead.” Witt said that a revised traffic study is under way. The additional families, Strong said, will have school-aged children who will have a major impact on local schools that are already overcrowded. The development does not include new schools, Witt said. But, developers are in talks with the local school districts to mitigate the affect on the schools. Another topic discussed was the fate of the gnatcatcher – a bird that is on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s endangered species list – and inhabits the hills that sit atop the northern end of the city. Coastal sage, which is on the natural habitat of the species, is part of the development. Rogers, who has done work before involving the gnatcatcher, said that the project includes language that will protect the bird in perpetuity. Currently, there are anywhere from 26 to 60 pairs of gnatcatchers on the property, he said. “It’s not all about the birds,” Strong said. “This is one of the last open space for us to enjoy and it should be saved primarily for Montebello residents and our neighbors.” Another member of the task force, Michael W. Popoff, who lives one block south of the hills, said he was not as opposed to the project as he thought he would be before the meeting began. “This is all new information,” he said. ” I have to think about it.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “We are in the very beginning of the planning,” said Norman Witt, senior vice president of Cook Hill Properties, LLC – the developer hired by PXP. “We are making the best decisions based on science and what is in the best interest of the city,” said Susan Lindquist, community development director for Cook Hill. Witt told residents the project would not infringe on their lifestyles. He said the natural and manufactured open spaces will serve as buffers. “There will be buffer zones in excess of 300 to 1,000 square feet from all neighborhoods,” Witt said. Mark Rogers of TRG Land, a hillside planning and design company, said all of the details of the project have not been completed yet. MONTEBELLO – About 50 local residents showed up Tuesday for the latest in a series of meetings by the owners and prospective developers of one of the last prime pieces of open space left in Los Angeles County. It involves about 480 acres of raw land in the Montebello Hills. Officials from Plains Exploration and Production Co., owners of the land, presented the latest information on the proposed development of the property, located on the northern tip of the city. The meeting, held at the Holy Cross Armenian Apostolic Cathedral’s center, was one in a series of meetings to inform neighborhoods surrounding the land of the plans. There will be at least a half dozen more meetings.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Our family camp-and-fish vacation out West from which we recently returned was a much-needed break and bonding time for me and mine. The trip was a working vacation for me, as I will be featuring it in a future issue of AAA Home & Away magazine, documenting our 18-day drive-and-camp adventure with a rental Airstream trailer in tow. We visited Glacier and Yellowstone national parks, as well as other destinations along the 4,500-mile route. Highlights included watching a grizzly bear cross our path on a hike out of Avalanche Lake in Glacier and watching my son Ethan land two huge cutthroat trout in the Yellowstone River with bison and active thermals venting steam in the background.Unexpected highpoints included feeding trout at the D.C. Booth Historical National Fish Hatchery in downtown Spearfish, South Dakota, the unexpected beauty of Flathead Lake in Montana, and discovering the dramatic geography of the Dells region of Wisconsin. The pre-trip concerns I had about sharing a campground with bikers attending an annual motorcycle rally in nearby Sturgis, SD, were unfounded (they were a reasonably quiet, pleasant bunch), even if the bowfishing trip I had arranged probably was more fun for 16-year-old Ethan and me than for Maria, who spent the 8-to-midnight Wisconsin River excursion taking photos and swatting insects attracted by the halogen lights used to spot the carp, buffalo and quillbacks we targeted.Our first long-distance camping vacation forced us out of our comfort zone in several ways, and more than once I caught gazes lingering on Fairfield Inns we passed along the route. The hikes to mountain lakes we shared in Glacier and Yellowstone were grueling (and wet) at times, but the reward of hooking a cutthroat trout, standing in the chilled spray of a glacier-fed waterfall and watching a wild grizzly bear at eye level more than made up for the effort. And the conversations that ensued between mother, father and son during such off-grid periods were worth gold.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Ben Brown, Program Manager for the Ohio State University Farm Management ProgramRallies in grain markets, especially soybean meal, have increased feed costs for hog producers that did not lock in contracts when prices were low. Higher input costs along with a decline in pork prices erased many of the margins hog producers experienced in the first quarter of 2018, but prices rebounded in May. Large increases in hog production in Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Nebraska have contributed to the low prices. The national average for fed hog prices was $52.50 in January but fell to $45.3 by April. Prices have rallied in recent weeks, but still below 2017 levels at this same period. Prices reached a peak in July of 2017 at $67.30. Markets for the nearby July futures contract signal horizontal movements in price. Current prices would suggest a per head return of $2 to $5 as a national average for 2018. With higher feed costs expected in 2019, negative margins could return.Exports to international markets will be a large factor in the hog outlook. Exports of U.S. pork were lowered 35 million pounds in the May WASDE report on concerns around Chinese demand. With the implementation of a 25% tariff on U.S. pork, exports to China have lagged. Increased exports to emerging markets like South Korea and the Dominican Republic will be important in offsetting decreases to China and increased domestic supply. Exports make up roughly 22% of U.S. pork production with the largest markets being Mexico and Japan. However, U.S. pork exports to Mexico decreased in the first quarter of 2018, substituted by large amounts of turkey imports. The USDA forecasts even higher pork production in 2018. The key question will be levels of domestic and international consumption of pork with competition from potential substitutes like beef and poultry. If China backs away from U.S. pork, negative margins could return in as early as this year.
