Petersburg Cold Storage broadens customer base

first_imgFisheries | Southeast | SyndicatedPetersburg Cold Storage broadens customer baseJanuary 5, 2016 by Ed Schoenfeld, CoastAlaska News Share:Petersburg’s nonprofit cold storage plant is serving a wider group of customers than it did when it began about 10 years ago. It’s still mostly freezing fish for big processors but it’s also taking in groceries and sport anglers’ catches.Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Seafood is frozen at Petersburg Community Cold Storage, which is in its 10th year of operation. The plant is serving different customers than it did when it was built. (Photo courtesy Petersburg Economic Development Council)Petersburg Community Cold Storage holds up to a half-million pounds of product at a time and during its decade of operation most of that product has been pink salmon from big processors.But that’s been changing.“It’s kind of extended beyond just the idea of having seafood in there,” said Liz Cabrera, coordinator of the Petersburg Economic Development Council, which owns the plant.She says it’s freezing and storing fish from smaller processors, as well as local businesses.“The restaurants and the grocery stores and even some of the remote lodges will bring things in. And even the canneries will store groceries there,” she said.It’s also being used more by hunters, charter operators and sport anglers without enough freezer space. Cabrera said one person brought in a moose.Petersburg’s cold storage plant continues to give priority to its anchor tenant, Ocean Beauty.“If they get a large delivery or large run of fish they can’t really handle at their plant they can bring it over and freeze it and hold it at the facility. They can also do freight consolidation so maybe they don’t have a container load yet of something they’re providing to a certain market. So they can hold product until they have a full container load,” she said.The plant, on Petersburg’s waterfront, a half mile south of downtown, plays a somewhat different role for smaller seafood processors.“They’ll hold frozen product there until maybe later in the season when they have time to smoke it or do some value-added processing. If they’re doing custom processing or maybe they don’t have enough room in their storage areas, they’ll bring excess over and hold it there until their customers can pick it up,” she said.Boxes of seafood are stacked in the cold storage holding room. (Photo courtesy Petersburg Economic Development Council)She said the economic development council has heard from some direct marketers interested in adding different types of processing to the facility.They’re exploring options but she said it’s hard to do more in the same amount of space when there are no plans for expansion.Cabrera says the public cold storage is already juggling smaller customers’ needs with those of the anchor tenant.“Sometimes we’ll prioritize floor space and … have to block in maybe some of our other users in order to be able to accommodate our larger user and we’ll try to move them out as fast as we can, so we can get to things that are stacked up behind,” she said.Volume – and income – is better this year than last. Smaller fish runs from July 2014 to June 2015 brought in gross revenues of about $125,000. July, August and September of last year alone brought in 90 percent of that amount.It’s representative of the ups and downs the facility has seen, as the salmon catch ebbs and flows and producers close or change hands.Cabrera says overall, the operation has paid its own way.“We try to even it out on the good years and save the money for the year we know is going to be a down year,” she said.Good years included 2009 and 2013.Along with the customers, the species frozen and stored have changed. Pink salmon still make up much of what’s in the facility. Unlike the early days, fish aren’t just blast-frozen and put into a shipping van.“I think we see a lot more chum and eggs that we’re processing or holding in the facility than we did initially and then just holding more product for additional processing later on,” she said.Petersburg Community Cold Storage construction was funded by the state Fisheries Economic Development Program and the Petersburg Economic Fund.Its latest addition is a couple big totes to hold ice for sport and commercial fishermen, offered at no cost.Share this story:last_img read more

‘Another broken promise’: Tribes say feds ignored their input on Roadless Rule exemption for Tongass

first_imgAlaska Native Government & Policy | Federal Government | Southeast | Timber‘Another broken promise’: Tribes say feds ignored their input on Roadless Rule exemption for TongassOctober 16, 2020 by Jacob Resneck, CoastAlaska Share:Portions of the Tongass National Forest, seen from Ketchikan’s Rainbird Trail. (KRBD file photo)Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Changing a federal rule isn’t simple, but the Trump administration is on the verge of doing it. Last month it started a 30-day clock to completely exempt Tongass National Forest from the 2001 Roadless Rule. The rule restricts — but does not prohibit — road building and resource development on some national forestlands. Critics say it locks up natural resources. To change it, the federal government is required to consult with tribal governments. And it did — nine Southeast Alaska tribes in all, whose traditional homelands are now part of the country’s largest national forest.Bob Starbard is administrator of Hoonah Indian Association. When the federal government started its consultation, the tribe was the first to sign on as a cooperating agency. And he says at first it seemed like U.S. Forest Service officials were listening.“The Tongass, which we sit in the middle of, is part and parcel of being Tlingit. We are people of the land,” Starbard said. “It became clear at the very end, however, that the game had already been fixed.”By that he means the meetings, hearings and public comment periods — which were dominated by Alaskans who favor of keeping the rule intact — didn’t move the Forest Service. It recommended lifting the rule completely and is expected to make it official before the end of October.“It’s just another broken promise to tribes as far as we’re concerned,” Starbard said.The nine tribes said as much in an Oct. 13 letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Forest Service chief Vicki Christiansen.The three-page letter is unequivocal, with one sentence in boldface: “We refuse to endow legitimacy upon a process that has disregarded our input at every turn.” The letter demands an updated environmental impact statement reflecting that the tribes have withdrawn their cooperation.Marina Anderson, administrator of the Organized Village of Kasaan on Prince of Wales Island, says is was clear that for the federal government, tribal consultation was not taken seriously.“It was apparent that our participation — requested by the federal government in the throes of this rulemaking process — was a form of box checking, a form of the government saying that they had consulted with us properly and they met with the Indigenous people properly,” Anderson said. “And all of the information that was really relayed to the Forest Service from the tribes, in my perspective, that information was disregarded completely. And really, it distracted us from a lot of other things that we needed to focus on with our time as well.”In a statement, USDA spokesman Larry Moore wrote that the tribes’ input “was integral to the agency’s analysis during the rulemaking process.”Alaska’s congressional delegation has long chafed against the Clinton administration-era Roadless Rule.Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has been one of its most vocal critics. She addressed the Alaska Federation of Natives but didn’t mention this milestone during her 18 minutes of remarks. “We’ve ensured access to the Tongass by enacting legislation like the Sealaska lands bill and the mental health trust land exchange. We’ve got more on the way,” Murkowski said.Republican Rep. Don Young applauded the rule change at a recent forum hosted by the Resources Development Council.“I’m happy to say for those in the area, you know my position I’ve been there I’ve worked there. We’ve got it done. So let’s open up Southeast to the communities for their economic well being,” Young said.It’s not just Alaska’s congressional delegation that wants to see the Roadless Rule repealed. Elected officials from across the spectrum have spoken out against it. Gov. Mike Dunleavy has applauded the Trump administration’s rollback. But it was his predecessor and political opponent — Gov. Bill Walker — who got the ball rolling. But Anderson says elected officials in Alaska have not listened to the majority of residents who oppose the rollback of the Roadless Rule.“Alaska’s delegation, this entire time, has had industry’s best interest, and they’ve been in full support of the exemption,” she said.Share this story:last_img read more

Colorado business confidence remains positive going into first quarter, says CU Leeds School index

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Colorado business leaders’ optimism is modest going into the first quarter of 2013 with uncertainty surrounding the country’s political and economic environments, according to the most recent quarterly Leeds Business Confidence Index, or LBCI, released today by the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business.For the first quarter of 2013 the LBCI, conducted by the Leeds School’s Business Research Division, posted an overall confidence reading of 51.3, down slightly from 51.6 in the fourth quarter of 2012. A reading greater than the neutral mark of 50 indicates positive expectations and one less than 50 indicates negative expectations going forward.Business leaders are optimistic about all of the metrics of the quarterly index except for the national economy and industry hiring plans. The other categories measured include the state economy, industry sales, industry profits and capital expenditures.“For months, drags on the national economy have included the European debt crisis, the slow rate of employment growth and the resolution of the federal debt crisis,” said economist Richard Wobbekind, executive director of the Business Research Division. “While Colorado business leaders have stronger confidence in the local economy than the national economy, they’re proceeding very cautiously.”Confidence in the state economy, which is at 55.5 points for the first quarter of 2013, outstrips that of the national economy, which posted a reading of 47. The outpacing of confidence in Colorado’s economy compared to the national economy is a 30-quarter trend, based on LBCI results.Business leaders’ sales expectations for the first quarter rose to 54.4, up from 53.2 last quarter, and are buoyed by 44.1 percent of LBCI respondents who anticipate an increase in the first quarter versus only 25.2 percent who predict a decline. Meanwhile, leaders’ profit expectations fell to 51.6, down from 52.2 for the last quarter of 2012.Hiring expectations have slipped into negative territory at 49.3, down from 51 in the last quarter of 2012, while capital expenditures remain close to neutral at 50.1.The LBCI first-quarter report for 2013 is available at For more information about the Leeds School’s Business Research Division visit Richard Wobbekind, executive director of the Leeds School’s Business Research Division, presents at the 48th annual Colorado Business Economic Outlook forum held on Dec. 3, 2012.

MTN brings in CEO earlier, denies Nigerian wrongdoing

first_img MTN eyes $6B valuation for money unit Related New MTN chief Rob Shuter will take the helm early, as the group looks to exit a turbulent period.Shuter, a high-ranking Vodafone executive, was hired in June, but with a long lead time to taking the top spot by 1 July 2017.He will now join as group president and CEO on 13 March 2017, an improvement for the group over the previous arrangement.More Nigerian woesThe group may have settled its massive regulatory fine in Nigeria, but now faces another allegation of wrongdoing in the country.  It faces a parliamentary investigation into whether it unlawfully repatriated $14 billion in funds between 2006 and 2016.The company said MTN Nigeria and its bankers are cooperating with the investigation. In the interim, the country’s central bank has instructed the banks to suspend any remittance of dividends until further notice.MTN Nigeria said it is committed to a payment of the NGN 330 billion ($1.08 billion) fine related to the late disconnection of improperly registered SIMs, and as a result has not declared a dividend since April 2015. MTN Nigeria has no intention to make any dividend payments over the next six months, it added.“MTN Nigeria continues to refute the allegations that MTN Nigeria had improperly repatriated funds from Nigeria. Consequently MTN Nigeria will strongly defend any action that would be prejudicial to its interests,” said a statement.Iranian funds releasedThe company also said in its quarterly update that repatriation of funds from MTN Irancell to MTN Group has commenced. The group, which holds a 49 per cent stake in the Iranian operator, has previously said easing of Iranian sanctions would enable it to receive about $1 billion in accumulated dividends and a loan repayment from its Iranian unit. It expects the repatriation to conclude over the next six months.In another piece of positive news, the group said its South African unit delivered a “pleasing” quarter-on-quarter improvement in both revenue and margin. There was a “marginal” decline in subscriber numbers over the same period, although this was attributed to churn of lower revenue-generating prepaid users.And MTN Nigeria almost stopped the rot in terms of year-on-year revenue decline. After falls of 6.2 per cent and 3.3 per cent in Q1 and Q2, respectively, the unit’s decline was only 1.2 per cent. The company said it was confident of positive YoY revenue metrics in Q4.

Facebook faces another US competition probe

first_img Diana Goovaerts Asia Legal officials from eight US states and the District of Columbia launched a joint investigation to determine whether Facebook engaged in anticompetitive behaviour and put user data at risk.New York attorney general Letitia James said in a statement the probe is focused on Facebook’s dominance in the market and potential anticompetitive conduct stemming from that position.She added the coalition will use “every investigative tool at our disposal to determine whether Facebook’s actions may have endangered consumer data, reduced the quality of consumers’ choice or increased the price of advertising.”James is working alongside the attorney generals of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and the District of Columbia.In a statement to CNBC, a Facebook representative said the company will work “constructively” with investigators and insisted it faces significant competition both in the US and around the globe. “People have multiple choices for every one of the services we provide” and can “easily leave our platform,” the representative said.The announcement increases pressure on the social media giant, which revealed in July it is the subject of a separate antitrust investigation by the US Federal Trade Commission. The company is also a likely target for a big tech competition probe launched by the Department of Justice.Google is expected to face similar scrutiny from state officials. The Wall Street Journal reported a coalition led by Texas attorney general Ken Paxton is expected to launch a probe into the search giant’s impact on digital advertising markets next week.
