key nfl committee poised to put raiders' las vegas move to vote


an influential joint committee of nfl owners "is inclined to recommend" that the raiders' application to move from oakland to las vegas be put to a vote of the entire ownership group at the annual league meeting later this month in phoenix, according to a person familiar with the league's inner workings.the joint committee, consisting of owners on the stadium and finance committees, has not yet made a formal recommendation that owners should ratify the raiders' relocation, according to that person, who cautioned that work remains to be done but added that such a recommendation could be made before the matter is put in the hands of the full ownership body.the raiders' proposed move would have to be approved by at least 24 of the 32 owners. the owners are scheduled to meet march 26-29 at a p

hawaii bill would ban licenses for some foreign fishermen


honolulu (ap) — hawaii lawmakers are considering a proposal with the potential to cripple the state’s commercial fishing industry after an associated press investigation found foreign fishermen confined to boats and living in subpar conditions.a 2016 ap investigation found that some fishermen earned less than $1 an hour and worked without most basic labor protections while catching premium seafood. the boats often have crews of fishermen from southeast asia and pacific island nations, and the men are restricted to their vessels when docked in honolulu because they lack proper documentation to enter the u.s.a bill in the hawaii legislature aims to change rules for how fishing licenses are issued to foreign crew members that make up the majority of the state’s commercial fleet.now, boat owne






the gop healthcare bill would be good for small business


eight years ago, the obama administration promised that the affordable care act would drive down costs. small business owners, in particular, were told that they could take advantage of new tax credits, and that new exchanges would give owners and employees alike new options to purchase coverage. but by the time president obama signed the bill, it was abundantly clear that the law would do more to harm small businesses than help them.the affordable care act, or obamacare, was perfectly misnamed. it failed entirely to make insurance affordable for small business owners and millions of other americans. on the contrary, obamacare has driven up costs for small business owners, who are hit with higher payroll taxes, taxes on health insurance products, the employer and individual mandate penalti

business optimism back to pre-recession levels


small business owners are as optimistic as they were before the great recession.that’s the finding of a quarterly survey by wells fargo, whose small business index rose 20 points from three months ago to a reading of 100. that’s the highest level for the index since it reached 100 in the third quarter of 2007, a few months before the official start of the recession.the survey is in line with others taken since the election that have shown owners are more optimistic. more evidence that owners are upbeat came wednesday, when payroll provider adp reported that its small business customers added 104,000 jobs in february, up from an average of 43,000 a month during the previous six months.in the wells fargo survey, which questioned 602 owners in early february, 29 percent said they planned to h

booze bill raises ethics question in kentucky’s legislature


frankfort, ky. (ap) — wesley morgan, owner of four liquor world outlets in kentucky, was pleased when a state legislative committee approved a bill to let liquor store owners transport alcohol across county lines.but unlike most liquor store owners, morgan has a direct say in whether the bill becomes law. a republican state representative, he sponsored the bill and wants house colleagues to pass that and six other measures he wrote that would affect liquor store owners.the kentucky legislative ethics commission says morgan’s bills don’t violate state ethics laws because they would impact all liquor store owners equally. but richard beliles, chairman of the watchdog group common cause kentucky, says the bills are improper.it’s an issue that vexes citizen legislatures around the country.most






reusse: in players vs. owners, ed garvey was the labor side's best


ed garvey died two weeks ago with minimal attention in the national media, considering his status in the battle to obtain economic rights for nfl players. he was my all-time favorite on the labor side of the never-ending competition between players and owners in major american team sports.the most oppressive foes in those battles always have been nfl owners, and garvey was both fierce and funny in his duel with those parasites. he was a young lawyer at lindquist & vennum in minneapolis in 1970 when baltimore colts tight end john mackey, the president of the nfl players association, came to the firm seeking representation for his downtrodden union.the players went on strike for two days in july 1970 and earned these kingly new concessions in a four-year collective bargaining agreement: mini

nfl vote on raiders' move will be "yes" — but "yes" to what?


the nfl owners’ vote will be “yes” on monday. we pretty much understand that now.but “yes” to what?sunday afternoon, self-important nfl owners will begin assembling in arizona to decide the fate of humanity and the raiders, which are basically the same thing in the eyes of many oakland fans.monday morning, following some committee reports and discussions, a vote of the 32 team owners will be conducted on whether raiders’ owner mark davis should be permitted to pack up his football team and move to las vegas in 2019 or 2020.at this point, the vote’s outcome is all but guaranteed.  for the resolution to pass, 24 of the 32 owners must vote “yes.”  numerous credible reports from league sources, including one i trust from the raiders, suggest that the support is there for davis. this makes sens

business owners: protect their rights


i wonder how many local rental units will exit the market due to laws restricting the rights of the edmonds landlord and other rental-property owners. the article immediately reminded me of the ongoing flap regarding the same-sex wedding flowers.in this country potential purchasers of a product or service have the freedom to choose a provider based on religion, race, sexuality, legal status, family or any other bias they may have, as they should be able to. on the other hand, business owners have no such freedom and are forced to deal with anyone who chooses them.perhaps recent election results indicate that many people are getting sick and tired of the socialistic, politically-correct, anti-business left’s continual theft of our freedoms in this country.gary t. mcgavran, bellevuemost read
