Buyer beware!”That’s the warning coming from Don Robison in the Office of the Indiana State Chemist about predatory hemp seed vendors known to be active in the state.This is the first year that hemp will be grown in Indiana as a commercial crop and not a research crop.“There are suppliers, some- definitely not all, but some suppliers in that market who are taking advantage of the lack of an overall market awareness from some of these new buyers.”Robison says a list of permitted suppliers is available on the Office of the Indiana State Chemist website. Purchasing from suppliers on that list could save some headaches that others have dealt with.“We’ve had situations where somebody will demand payment upfront and then not deliver the seed. We’ve had situations where people will just outright lie about what they’re selling and will actually sell a grower marijuana seed because that’s what they have to sell and then tell them, ‘No, it’s a compliant hemp seed.’”And Robison warns if the crop is “hot”, meaning it has over the legal limit of THC, there are other legal issues that could arise.In addition to the warning about predatory seed vendors, Robison continues to warn growers that they must have a market prior to growing a hemp crop.“There is 2018 and 2019 crop stored in barns and obviously 2020 crop stored in barns. There are only 7 processors, or handlers, in Indiana. Not all of them are taking on additional crop at this point. If you don’t have a firm, solid, legally checked contract, you’ve got no business growing this crop.”Robison urges growers to contact their office if they’ve had issues with their hemp seed vendor, even if they are on the permitted list.

first_imgThe Palm Beach County non-profit health care center, FoundCare has been swamped with COVID-19 test requests and has to suspend the drive-thru service on Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach.Here is their statement:Effective immediately, FoundCare, Inc., a nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Center, is no longer taking appointments for its COVID-19 drive-through testing station in the parking lot of its location at 2330 South Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach. The site was set up to test Palm Beach County residents for COVID-19 with a prior appointment only. FoundCare has been overwhelmed with calls for appointments, and individuals have been showing up without following required screening protocols and confirmed appointments.“Currently, we have scheduled appointments through April 10,” said Yolette Bonnet, CEO of FoundCare. “Until we receive additional test kits, we are unable to further schedule any testing appointments. We ask for the public’s understanding during these uncertain times. We will announce if we are able to resume testing as soon as those kits become available. In the interim, we will not see anyone for testing if they do not have a confirmed appointment. You will be turned away.”FoundCare announced its testing operations on Sunday, March 15 and by Monday, March 16 they had received more than 6,000 calls requesting an appointment. The West Palm Beach based FQHC was clear that patients must call for a prior appointment and answer screening questions in order to be scheduled. Patients who did not meet those requirements were turned away from the testing site.“For those patients who have an appointment to see us, we will proceed with testing as long as our supplies remain,” said Bonnet. “We hope to receive additional supplies soon and will communicate that information at www.foundcare.org. In the meantime, we encourage patients to contact the Florida Department of Health for other options for testing.”FoundCare, Inc., celebrating 35 years in the community, uses a sliding fee scale based on household size and income, and no one is turned away for inability to pay. With several locations throughout Palm Beach County, FoundCare offers such one-stop services as pediatric and adult primary care, new women’s health services, chronic disease management, behavioral health services, dentistry, pharmacy, laboratory services and x-rays.For more information about FoundCare visit www.foundcare.org or call 561-HEALTHY (432-5849).

first_imgThis Sept. 30, 2013, file photo shows Miami Heat basketball player player LeBron James posed during the team’s media day in Miami. Four years after their messy breakup, the Cavaliers and James are at least talking about a reunion. Cavs officials met with James’ agent, Rich Paul, this week about the free-agent superstar’s possible return. The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night, July 3, 2014. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter, File)MIAMI (AP) — Before LeBron James makes his next decision, Pat Riley will get a chance to convince him to stay in Miami.Two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press late Sunday night that James will meet with the Heat president this week before making a decision about where to play next season. The time and location of the meeting were still being scheduled, said the people who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the Heat nor James announced their plans publicly.“In the next two or three days,” one of the people said.Monday would seem difficult, unless James’ schedule changes. He has a commercial shoot planned and was expected to travel to Las Vegas later in the day for his annual camp with some of the nation’s best young basketball players, an event that opens Wednesday. James also has been planning a trip to Brazil for the World Cup final on July 13.There’s urgency from the Heat perspective as well. NBA players can begin signing new contracts Thursday, with some deals already having been agreed upon and plenty of others likely to fall into place in the coming days, so it would clearly benefit the Heat to know James’ plans sooner than later.USA Today Sports first reported the plans for James and Riley to discuss matters.The news of the planned Riley-James meeting came toward the end of a wild Sunday, sparked by news that one of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s private jets was heading to South Florida. And the plane did land at an airport in Fort Lauderdale around 6:40 p.m., albeit at a different facility than the flight plan indicated, for reasons that were not made clear.The plane stayed for about 3½ hours. It was unknown who was on the plane.Still, the mere notion of a James-Cavaliers reunion seems to have Cleveland — the team the Akron, Ohio, native spent his first seven seasons with before leaving for Miami — on anxious edge.James opted out of his contract with the Heat last month, as did fellow Miami stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. James’ agent, Rich Paul, met with the Cavaliers, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks while the four-time NBA MVP was vacationing last week.James’ decision would figure to set off a wave of other deals. If he stays in Miami, that would almost certainly help convince Wade and Bosh to stay with the Heat. If James returns to Cleveland, the Cavaliers would more than likely have to make a trade of some significance to open up salary cap space.Riley and the Heat won over James with their sales pitch four years ago — and Miami has been to the NBA Finals all four years that it has had James in uniform, winning two championships. When James made the highly expected move to opt out and become a free agent this summer, Riley said through the team that he looked forward to having an opportunity to meet with him and discuss their futures together.Now, it would seem they’ll be discussing if they’ll actually have a future.The Cavs are hoping they can impress James with a young roster that includes No. 1 overall draft picks in Kyrie Irving, Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. In the early hours of free agency last week, Irving agreed to a five-year, $90 million contract extension the All-Star point guard is expected to sign Thursday.Cleveland also has room under the salary cap, but will need to clear more space to offer James a max deal.One stumbling block for the Cavs could be the fractured relationship between Gilbert and James. When James left in 2010, Gilbert wrote a scathing letter to Cleveland fans, condemning the four-time league MVP. He also told the AP he felt James quit in playoff games.While James has been out of the country with his wife, Savannah, and their two sons, Paul has been working on the four-time MVP’s future. Unlike four years ago, when teams flocked to Cleveland to make presentations to woo James, the courtship of him this time has been low key and rather business-like.The Cavs have waited patiently for their chance to try and convince the Akron, Ohio, native to come home. In the past few weeks, the Cavs have hired new coach David Blatt, selected Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick and gotten All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to agree to a five-year, $90 million contract extension.Now, they’re working on bringing back James, who has never ruled out the possibility of a return.Two years ago, James was asked if he could ever see himself playing for the Cavs again.“I don’t know. I think it would be great,” he said. “It would be fun to play in front of these fans again. I had a lot fun times in my seven years here. You can’t predict the future and hopefully I continue to stay healthy. I’m here as a Miami Heat player, and I’m happy where I am now, but I don’t rule that out in no sense.“And if I decide to come back, hopefully the fans will accept me.”Cleveland fans, most of them anyway, have gotten over James’ infamous “Decision,” when he announced he was leaving on a nationally televised special. He was booed mercilessly in his first games back with the Heat, but in recent years he has been received more favorably. Maybe that’s because the Cavs haven’t been to the playoffs since he left and Clevelanders know he might be the only chance they have to see a championship in their lifetimes.Cleveland hasn’t won a title in any of the major sports since 1964.If he were to come back, James could repair the damage he did to his image when he left.But that remains a big ‘if.’In order for James to play again in Cleveland, he and Gilbert would have to have some sort of reconciliation. Gilbert’s letter — famously typed in comic sans font — was a blistering attack on James, who had carried the Cavs to the NBA Finals in 2007 but failed to deliver on his promise of a championship. Gilbert had guaranteed the Cavs would win a title before James, but later regretted the prediction.“Looking back now, that probably was not the most brilliant thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Gilbert said.He and James may get a second chance together.___AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  Leave a CommentThe opioid crisis is devastating countless communities across the state, as Ohioans are now more than two and a half times as likely to die from a drug overdose than a car accident. In fact, Ohio ranks third in the nation for opioid overdose deaths with more than 5,000 Ohioans dying from overdose in 2017 alone.Healthy, drug-free residents are important to a thriving community and economy, which is why Ohio Farm Bureau has joined the Opioid Education Alliance. The alliance, which is composed of more than 40 business, civic and government organizations, has a mission to spread opioid misuse prevention messages through its Denial, OH campaign. The Denial, OH campaign features public service announcements that are set in the fictional town of Denial, Ohio, where residents are “in denial” that their children could become addicted to opioids.Check out the PSAs, and educate yourself, your family and friends on proper prescription opioid use and disposal.Welcome to Denial, OhioPeople in Denial, Ohio  Leave a Commentlast_img read more
