Are wise consumers of gasoline being pushed to use a fuel that doesn’t work in their boats, lawn equipment, and other small engines? A June 24 statement from the Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA) blames current high gasoline prices on volatile markets and calls for more ethanol at the gas pump to lower gas prices. However, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) says that smart consumers have learned that corn-based ethanol has not lived up to its expectations as America’s green fuel and that higher ethanol blends – those being encouraged by the MCGA – are incompatible with outboard boat motors, generators, lawn mowers, motorcycles, and so many other engines.

North Carolina NAACP and Others Challenge State’s Voter Suppression Law in Federal Court
On behalf of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, today a legal team will begin arguments in a federal hearing to stop the worst effects of H.B. 589, North Carolina’s restrictive voting law. Attorneys from Advancement Project, Kirkland & Ellis, as well as North Carolina attorneys Irving Joyner and Adam Stein, are seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent the law from disenfranchising voters in the November 2014 midterm election. Alleging that the measure violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, along with the 14th and 15th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, they will demonstrate how the measure disproportionately impacts North Carolina’s African-American voters – intentionally burdening these communities’ right to vote.

Safety first, the Paramus Parade was postponed one day due to concerns about Hurricane Arthur. Fortunately, we were bypassed for the fury of Arthur and the 5th was a gorgeous day drawing crowds along the way. Participants had to scurry around, adjust schedules, yet it came off well. Mayor Rich LaBarbiera started the parade off and had a big following. Among the politicians seen there were Freeholders Jim Tedesco and David Ganz, New Jersey Assemblymen Tim Eustace and Joe Lagana, US Senator Scott Garrett, Councilwomen Maria Elena Bellinger, Jeanne Weber, Councilmen Pat Verile, Joe Garcia and Steve Sullivan. Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenburg came back from vacation to participate with Deputy Chief Robert Guidetti and lots of marching members of the Paramus Police force.
