DES MOINES — The Iowa Department of Agriculture says an agreement that is designed to help small-size meat processing facilities is moving ahead.Iowa Ag Secretary Mike Naig says it involved lockers with fewer than 25 employees. “We’ve got a new cooperative interstate shipment program that will allow them to sell products across state lines for the first time,” according to Naig. “They’ll remain a state inspected locker — but they’ll be able to sell across state lines. And we think this is just a great opportunity that will have a long-lasting impact for these folks.”Without this agreement meat processed at a small-town butcher shop would have to be inspected a second time by federal inspectors before it could be marketed anywhere beyond Iowa’s borders. Naig says the deal has been in the works long before the COVID-19 issues with the meat supply chain. He says the process started last June as small meat lockers and processors came to him asked about it. Naig says then they started working with the U.S.D.A. on it.Naig says the current coronavirus impact on the supply chain has helped push this forward as livestock producers are trying to be creative for marketing their livestock. The capacity of the large processors dropped with COVID-19 outbreaks and that has led to some producers euthanizing their animals as they have no place to take them.“It is not terribly widespread yet — but each day that the plants don’t run at full capacity is a day that we are adding to that backlog,” Naig says. “The situation continues to improve with our packing plants, I think as of Wednesday, we are running right around 72 to 73 percent of our normal capacity. So, it’s going to take us some time to get back up to that normal capacity that we know we need.”Iowa is the seventh state, to enter an agreement. Those lockers that enter the agreement will still have periodic visits from federal inspectors.

The couple are expecting their fourth child.Rooney was given a warm welcome at Old Trafford on his return to former club Manchester United on Sunday but it ended in disappointment with a 4-0 defeat for Everton.Everton manager Ronald Koeman said earlier this month the matter would be dealt with “internally”.Rooney made a successful start to his second Everton spell following his return to the club from United, scoring on his first two Premier League appearances.His form moved England manager Gareth Southgate to offer him an international recall, but he decided to call time on his England career.Share on: WhatsApp
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Oly Town ArtesiansBellingham United capitalized on three of their four power play opportunities and killed an Oly Town Artesians power play late in the fourth quarter to hang on to a hard fought 9-8 win on Saturday night. The Artesians scored four times in the fourth quarter and had numerous opportunities to equalize with a man advantage over the last 2:24 of the game but just couldn’t quite sneak one past Hammers keeper Riley Liddle. Willie Spurr scored twice for Oly but it was Brady Ulen’s goal with 5:10 left that proved to be the game winner for first place Bellingham. It was a physical, testy game that featured 23 total fouls, eight blue cards, one yellow and numerous other plays that could have easily resulted in cards of a variety of colors and left many scratching their heads. The Artesians scored on two of their four power play opportunities. The first came with just six second left in the second quarter when Jamie Barnwell slotted one home. Then Matt Herrera cut a three goal deficit to two with a goal in the fourth quarter after a tripling penalty on Bellingham’s Richard Henderson.Moments after Herrera’s goal, Spurr scored his second goal to make it 8-7, but Ulen answered back to make it 9-7 Bellingham with 5:10 left to play. Herrera scored again on a feed from Spurr to bring the Artesians to within a goal late in the game and it looked like the late game heroics at The Pavilion would continue when Bellingham was whistled for their 12th foul of the game and were shown the blue card. But the Artesians were unable to break through and fell to 3-3-1 overall this season. Goalkeeper JJ Olson scored his first goal of the season on a bouncing shot that Liddle was fooled on to open the fourth quarter of play. JT Meyer and Tom Kemennu each got into the act with first and third quarter goals respectively.Bellingham opened each half quickly. Rene Caro scored just a minute and a half into the game and a ball along the wall got caught up in one of the referee’s feet to begin the second half, resulting in an Artesians turnover and an easy look for Chris Jepson with just 17 second gone in the third. Connor Moe paced the Hammers with a pair of goals and Ivan Colin, Henderson and Nick Cashmere each added goals of their own.The win puts Bellingham (6-2-0) in command of first place in the WISL. Oly, meanwhile, has dropped two straight and sits in third place just two points ahead of Sporting Everett and the Snohomish Skyhawks and three points ahead of their next opponent, the Tacoma Stars Reserves.Oly travels to Tacoma next Saturday to take on the Stars Reserves. First kick at the Tacoma Soccer Center is set for 7:30 PM. The Artesians return home on Saturday, February 4 to face the Snohomish Skyhawks at 6:00 PM.

The Philadelphia Eagles have fired defensive line coach Jim Washburn after their 38-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night.According to the team, Washburn was “relieved of his duties” following the team’s eighth straight loss. The Eagles defensive line gave up 123 rushing yards compared to the Cowboys 183 rushing yards, which does not seem to be the reason behind his firing.“Jim is a fine football coach and we appreciate the efforts he gave to this team over the past two years,” coach Andy Reid. “However, I determined that it was in the team’s best interest that we move in a different direction in terms of trying to maximize the production of that position group. We look forward to having Tommy Brasher back on board to work with the defensive line.”Brasher was the Eagles defensive line coach in 1985 and from 1999 through 2005.One the determining factors that played into Washburn’s firing was that he had become a “cancer” around the team, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. His attitude took a turn for the worse when defensive end Jason Babin was released last week and picked up off of waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars.Washburn was hired by Reid in Jan. 2011 to improve his pass rush defense. He brought his wide nine scheme to the Eagles, which aims to sack the quarterback at the expense of a run defense. The Eagles only managed to sack Tony Romo Sunday night one time for an 11-yard loss.The Eagles have 46 sacks on the season, but that was not enough for Reid nor the Eagles front office.Washburn built a reputation with the team for being outspoken about his thoughts. Last November, he was involved in an argument with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg on the sideline during a game.He also expressed his frustrations to players about former defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, who was fired earlier in the season by Reid. Washburn has also complained about new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.With a few more weeks left to go in the season, Reid has potentially seen his last days as the Eagles head coach and could possibly receive his pink slip soon.
