  • Is Operation Choke Point to blame for bank account closures?

    first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Lauren SaundersPawn brokers, payday lenders, gun dealers, and others claim that the Department of Justice’s Operation Choke Point and bank regulator pressure are forcing banks and credit unions to close the accounts of legal businesses. But most of those account closures have more to do with the Bush Administration’s 2001 USA Patriot Act than with Operation Choke Point. Banks also close accounts all the time for a variety of other reasons.Complaints about bank account closures and “de-risking” go back a decade, to implementation of the post-9/11 reforms to deny criminals access to the banking system.The National Pawnbroker Association is now blaming Operation Choke Point. But in 2006, pawnbrokers were complaining to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) about the Patriot Act and related anti-money laundering efforts: “Pawn industry members have lost longstanding lines of credit as well as demand deposit relationships in most parts of the country since 2004.”FiSCA, the trade association representing many check cashers, money transmitters, and payday lenders, had the same complaint in 2006: “For the past six years banks have been abandoning us – first in a trickle, then continuously accelerating so that now few banks are willing to service us ….” continue reading »last_img read more

He fills the role vacated by Donald Steel last month. Alistair is Chairman of Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire and the President-elect of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon (BB&O) Golf Union. He said: “I am both delighted and honoured to be appointed Chairman of GTC. The committee plays an important role as an independent organisation representing UK golf club employers and greenkeepers. “Its purpose is to support all golf facilities in England, Scotland and Wales in making the most of their golf courses by ensuring their greenkeeping teams have access to the best possible training.” Fiona Lyttle, GTC Manager said: “We are delighted Alistair has accepted the role and we look forward to working with him as the GTC continues to develop.” Having been in consumer and business electronics for a large part of his working life, Alistair sold his business in 2008 and became heavily involved in the golf industry.

  • Dale Minyo wraps up another fun county fair season

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Kayla HawthorneDale Minyo wrapped up the 2018 county fair season last week at the Fairfield County Fair in Lancaster.Minyo is a farm broadcaster with Ohio Ag Net. He is often the voice behind the morning and midday radio broadcast. Throughout the fair season, Minyo attends 22 to 25 county fairs in the Ohio Ag Net truck and Kalmbach Feeds Studio, where he records the midday broadcast. His summer work days get started around 3 a.m. and go until the last of the days events are concluded and he can make the drive home. At the Fairfield County Fair Minyo stayed to announce the truck and tractor pulls in the evening, making for a very long day.“The fairs are always different. But at the same time, we do the same thing with different people,” Minyo said. “They all have unique things about them.”For the broadcasts from fairs, Minyo interviews independent sponsors, fair kings and queens, and sometimes the showmen of champion market projects. Minyo believes that being at the events help to promote and remind people of county fairs in their areas.“I would like to always make sure we’re doing a good job at featuring and highlighting what makes that fair unique,” Minyo said. “There’s always going to be an opportunity to tell someone’s story.”Minyo often meets people that he grew up with or generations that he watched grow up. He has interviewed several people when they were exhibiting in country fairs and now sees them in adulthood mentoring the youth.“Who knows where you might run into them again?” Minyo said. “The biggest challenge is to not talk to too many people and still get your work done.”With his busy schedule and long summer hours, Minyo often passes up on the fair food, though he has some do-not-miss stops throughout the summer. When he does get fair food, he said that he likes to sit down with the venders to hear about their stories.“I do have favorite ice cream places that I go,” he saidThe selection of the fairs Minyo and the Ohio Ag Net attend is based on sponsorship. In 2018, AgriGold sponsored 10 county fairs, usually different counties every year, FIC Dealerships sponsored five and others are from independent sponsors. JD Equipment of Lancaster was the independent sponsor for the Fairfield Country Fair. At the end of a long summer of almost daily travel to fairs, field days and often other evening events, Minyo is ready for the comparatively slower schedule during harvest (and maybe a nap).last_img read more
