Supply chain problems may hit Christmas decorations

Supply chain problems may hit Christmas decorations

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WXIN) — Christmas may still be three months away, but some business owners say they are already running into issues stocking their shelves.

“We’re definitely seeing supply chain issues,” says Lisa Bennett, owner of Black Sheep Gifts in Indiana. “We’re just not getting our inventory in, certainly not in a timely manner.” Right now, Black Sheep Gifts is loaded with various Halloween gifts and décor, but behind the scenes, the Christmas hustle has already started.

“If there’s things that you want for the holidays, that you know that are on people’s holiday list, you need to get it while you can,” says Bennet. “Because if we run out, I don’t know when or if we’ll be able to get more in.”

Bennett says the pandemic has brought on a series of supply chain issues. She says that rising shipping costs and labor shortages have been a problem for months, so she placed her Christmas inventory orders months in advance hoping they would arrive in time. “Our November-December sales typically make up about 35%-40% of our annual sales, so it’s a big deal for us to make sure that we can capture those big holiday sales,” explained Bennett.

At Sullivan Hardware & Garden, Christmas trees, wreaths, and garlands are just some of the items running low due to pandemic-related supply chain issues. “The skyrocketing price of a (shipping) container is shocking, just shocking,” says owner Pat Sullivan.

Sullivan says he is paying more than three times the typical cost for artificial Christmas trees this year due to rising shipping costs. He says that, generally, the retailer fronts most of the extra costs, but some of that cost will lead to higher prices. “People might have their heart set on a 10-foot tree and might have to take a 9-foot, you know, because all of them might not make it. We’re just not sure yet,” says Sullivan.

Other items, Sullivan says, will not be worth the higher cost and simply will not get stocked at all. “If what’s on the container—you just have to look at it—if it pushed the price too high, you just don’t bring it in,” he says.

Both Sullivan and Bennett agree that it’s an issue that’s only gotten worse as the pandemic drags on, so shopping early is your best bet. “Typically, people come shopping, and we’ll hear around Halloween, ‘Oh, I’ll have to come back at the holidays,’ but if you come back at the holidays, there’s just no guarantee that you’re going to find anything,” says Bennett.

Ex-Vermonter arrested in Alaska, charged with threat to kill local relatives

(NEXSTAR) – A DiGiorno customer’s complaint about finding the wrong pies in a box labeled as pepperoni pizza has led to the recall of roughly 27,872 pounds of pizza.

Nestle USA Inc. is recalling the frozen DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust pies because they may actually contain a different type of pizza – DiGiorno’s “three meat” frozen pizza –  which is made with a textured soy protein that is a known allergen, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

New York moves forward with $15 minimum wage despite labor shortage

New York moves forward with $15 minimum wage despite labor shortage

NEW YORK (WWTI) — New York State is continuing with its plan to implement its $15 minimum wage. The New York State Department of Labor announced on Monday that the state’s minimum wage phase-in will continue. The next steps are set to take effect on December 31, 2021.

According to the DOL, this next phase will require the minimum wage to be increased to $15 per hour on Long Island and Westchester, matching the minimum wage already set in New York City. All other areas will be required to raise the minimum wage to $13.20 per hour based on economic factors and indices.

Below is the general minimum wage scheduled for New York State.

12/31/16 12/31/17 12/31/18 12/31/19 12/31/20 12/31/21
NYC- 11 or more employees $11.00 $13.00 $15.00 $15.00 $15.00 $15.00
NYC- 10 or fewer employees $10.50 $12.00 $13.50 $15.00 $15.00 $15.00
Long Island and Westchester $10.00 $11.00 $12.00 $13.00 $14.00 $15.00
Remainder of New York State $9.70 $10.40 $11.10 $11.80 $12.50 $13.20

This announcement follows a required report by the Division of the Budget, which found evidence of pressure for wages to rise in the midst of the ongoing labor shortage.

“Companies, particularly those that employ low-wage workers, are already raising wages and in some cases offering incentives to hire amid a labor shortage that is showing no sign of abating, and it makes sense to raise the wage floor now and continue supporting New York’s families while providing a predictable path forward for businesses,” Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon said in a press release. “With today’s action, we are continuing the work of building back with equity and justice.”

Findings from the Division of the Budget’s Minimum Wage Report included that the low-wage sector was the most impacted by the pandemic. The report stated that 57.2% of the private sector losses were in retail trade, health care and social assistance, leisure and hospitality. Additionally, results from the Survey of Consumer Expectations suggested that the pandemic has caused some workers to reassess the value of their labor.

The DOL stated that future increases in the remainder of New York State will be based on an indexed schedule. This will be set by the Director of the Division of the Budget in consultation with the Department of Labor following an annual review of the impact.

Suicide Prevention Awareness Month centers breaking mental health stigma

Suicide Prevention Awareness Month centers breaking mental health stigma

(WFFF) — September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and the Department of Mental Health and Vermont’s advocacy groups want you to know how to make a difference. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among Vermonters ages 15 to 34.

Even so, Laurie Emerson, executive director of NAMI Vermont, says conversations about mental health have grown more open and accessible. “We’ve been more open about it, and we’ve realized we all have mental health, and we all need support,” she says.

Emerson says those discussions can take many forms, whether it’s a conversation with a friend, visiting a community mental health center, or calling the Suicide Prevention Hotline during a crisis. Emerson added that next year, there will be a new lifeline, which can be reached by dialing 988.

NAMI Vermont is also pushing for mobile crisis teams in Vermont. “Let’s be able to meet people where they’re at to give them the support that they need,” Emerson said. “What we really want to do is keep people out of the emergency room to ensure they’re getting the help that they need when they need it.”

Alex Raeburn, the Vermont Department of Mental Health’s data and outreach coordinator, says there’s been a particular focus on helping employees create work environments free of mental health stigma. “There’s a lot of opportunities to just really check in, be mindful of where everyone is, and how their mental health is being affected,” Raeburn said. “Not just by these extreme circumstances we’ve all been dealing with for the last year and a half, but also just to make this a norm.”

Emerson also highlighted the importance of support groups. She first got involved with NAMI Vermont by going to meetings with a family member. Although it might not be a preferred method for some, there can be strength in numbers.

“I was able to connect with other families who were going through the same experiences I was going through, and we were able to talk to each other very openly and honestly,” Emerson said. “Sometimes talking with people other than family is really helpful, because they understand what you’re going through.”

On October 9, NAMI Vermont will host its annual NAMIWalks event. The fundraiser will be an in-person event and a virtual experience. Participants will meet on the lawn of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington for a walk and a BBQ.

Meeting in Poestenkill Monday night to discuss PFOA found at local school and homes

Meeting in Poestenkill Monday night to discuss PFOA found at local school and homes

POESTENKILL, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A community meeting will be September 27 at 7 p.m. in Poestenkill to discuss PFOA found in the drinking water at a local school and nearby homes. PFOA is a toxic chemical which can cause serious health problems.

PFOA was found in drinking wells at Algonquin Middle School in Poestenkill and in nearby residential wells. The school has shut off water fountains since learning of the drinking water problem.

It was standing room only Monday night at the Poestenskill VFW where residents shared their concerns to members of the Poestenskill Town Board, the Rensselaer County Health Department, the NYS Department of Health and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.

The Poestenkill Town Board says they are in the early stages and no major decisions have been made yet.

Residents say they want to get forever chemicals out of their water. Poestenkill Town Board Member Eric Wohlleber says action needs to be taken.

“They need to be doing free testing in Poestenskill and they need to be doing free testing in Poestenkill tomorrow,” said he.

The town is working the state on addressing frequent testing, as well as finding the source.

“We need to know what the source is, we need to know where the plume is and we need to know where the plume is not,” said Wohlleber.

The town says they have long term goals put in place such as Troy water connection or getting EPA grants such as the Clean Water Act.

Residents say they just want some answers.

“We need more testing in local areas, they need to put the filters on the wells that need them and let us know that we are safe or not safe, so I can go on living my life,” said Evan, a resident in Poestenkill. 

This chemical was also found in drinking water in Hoosick Falls and Petersburg, also in Rensselaer County.

Speakers include:

  • Bob Brunet, Poestenkill Public Health Coordinator
  • NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
  • NYS Department of Health
  • Rensselaer County Health Department (invited)
  • Judith Enck, former EPA Regional Administrator and resident of Poestenkill
  • Michele Baker, NY Water Project and resident of Hoosick Falls

The meeting will also be available on Zoom. Participants on Zoom can enter comments or questions in the chat portion of the meeting.

The NYS DOH will be holding a drinking water quality council meeting on October 5, 1:30 – 4 PM.

Due to current COVID-19 precautions, the meeting will be held via live Webcasting only at the following link.

The public may write and submit comments during the meeting through a portal on the live webcast. The comments will then be read into the public record.

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Bloom Ink Studio is not your average tattoo shop. The shop, located at 455 Broadway, specializes in microblading and paramedical tattoos including things like areola restoration for cancer patients, scalp micro-pigmentation and scar camouflage.

In order to celebrate, the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District is celebrating the shop’s grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 30 at 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Hunger-Free Vermont aims to make free school lunches the norm

Hunger-Free Vermont aims to make free school lunches the norm

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WFFF) — Vermonters are working to make free, universal school meals permanent in the state.

“It’s just a basic equity issue when it comes to education,” says Teddy Waszazak, campaign manager with Hunger-Free Vermont. “Kids cannot learn well if they cannot eat well.”

During the pandemic, the need for universal school meals grew, prompting the USDA to issue temporary waivers for free breakfast and lunch regardless of families’ incomes. But Waszazak says these waivers are set to expire at the end of the school year. “The campaign is advocating to make the universal school meal system permanent in Vermont,” he says.

Since 2011, he and his colleagues have tried to make universal school meals the norm in Vermont. Last year, their bill made it through the Senate. In January, they plan to meet with lawmakers again to get it passed.

“I remember as a kid buying lunch tickets, and ‘Did I bring my money?’” said Burlington resident Jessica Savage. “And, ‘Oh shoot, I didn’t!’”

Savage is a mother of two young children. She says she’s glad to see her daughter’s school work to reduce the stigma around school meals. “It’s part of what being in the classroom is for these children, she says. “My kid especially, she needs that in order to focus on anything.”

Wazazak says he remembers the challenges he faced at lunchtime and is determined to change that narrative for Vermont’s students. “I’ve been on my own since I was 15. I often did not eat in school because I didn’t have parents to fill out the paperwork and could not afford to buy the meals on my own,” he says. “We need to be providing for them, because I know personally what it’s like to have to go without those things, and then also be expected to perform well in school. And it’s frankly impossible.”

He encourages Vermonters to get involved in the campaign and sign the support card.
