LANSING — Gov. Rick Snyder's Relentless Positive Action is on a collision course with Relentless Partisan Action in the Republican-controlled Legislature. And the form of RPA that prevails at the end of this wild and contentious lame-duck legislative session could ultimately cement Snyder's legacy as governor — a tenure bookmarked by sweeping business tax cuts, Detroit's bankruptcy and nascent rebirth and Flint's disastrous water crisis.The businessman-turned-governor's often mystifying relationship with Republican legislators is facing its biggest test yet as GOP legislative leaders try to push through an aggressive set of bills to scale back the executive branch powers of an incoming Democratic governor, attorney general and secretary.Like much of his tenure in office, Snyder is frustrating Republicans, Democrats, lobbyists and reporters alike in his final weeks in office with noncommital answers to questions about what will be his last hurrah."I don't think about … [Read more...] about Analysis: In lame duck, a partisan town is still trying to figure out Rick Snyder
By Jim Alexander | [email protected] | The Press-EnterprisePUBLISHED: December 7, 2018 at 10:27 pm | UPDATED: December 7, 2018 at 10:27 pm ANAHEIM — It has taken time, and the Ducks have the battle scars from earlier in the season to show for it. But they seem to have developed an identity, work in progress though it may be. It’s not necessarily the one they foresaw coming into the season, when not only they but the entire NHL seemed obsessed with getting faster. But it’s one the Ducks’ marketing department should latch onto. “Blue-collar hockey,” Randy Carlyle said Friday afternoon, a few hours before the Ducks’ 4-1 loss to Carolina at Honda Center. “Good defensively, effective on our breakouts, win the special teams battle, create a strong forecheck, don’t play trade-chance hockey. Very simple.” Have we said it’s a work in progress? The Ducks, who hadn’t given up a third-period goal in six games, … [Read more...] about Alexander: Maybe Randy Carlyle coined a Ducks marketing slogan?
By Paul Gackle | [email protected] | Bay Area News GroupPUBLISHED: December 7, 2018 at 12:22 pm | UPDATED: December 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm DALLAS — As the Sharks continue their search for fourth line consistency, head coach Pete DeBoer is leaving open the possibility that the team could seek help on the trade market if things don’t change quickly. The phrase “rolling four lines” got embedded into the brains of Sharks fans shortly after DeBoer took over coaching duties in 2016. Four line play is central to DeBoer’s brand of hockey. But the Sharks have struggled to put that idea into practice over the first 29 games of the season, which could inspire general manager Doug Wilson to go shopping for his coach if the problem persists. “I think the ingredients are in our room, but we’re 30 games in now. We have to get that established consistently,” DeBoer said. “We have to be a four line team and we have to be confident in that … [Read more...] about Sharks could look to trade market for fourth line help
The Resnicks and Jerry Meral are leading advocates for the construction of the Delta Tunnels, a massive public works project that opponents say will destroy the Delta ecosystem and West Coast fisheries. Meral, in a moment of candor, infamously said in 2013, “The Delta cannot be saved.” Stewart and Lynda Resnick, the Beverly Hills billionaire owners of the Wonderful Company, and many of the same agribusiness interests that promote the Delta Tunnels are now funding the campaign to pass Jerry Meral’s water bond, Prop. 3, on the November ballot in California. The Resnicks’ Wonderful Orchards LLC has donated $100,000 to the campaign to date. The Resnicks, who are known as the Koch Brothers of California by activists, contribute many hundreds of thousands of dollars to candidates from both sides of the political aisle and to proposition campaigns so they can continue selling back public water to the public at a huge profit while promoting … [Read more...] about Big Ag billionaires Stewart and Lynda Resnick donate $100,000 to Yes on Prop. 3 : Indybay
