State stops sale of cheap milk
Advocate [Baton Rouge], by Michelle Millhollon

For Lafayette stockbroker Kenneth Daigle, buying a gallon of milk is no longer the bargain it used to be on Tuesdays at Fresh Market. The upscale supermarket chain yanked milk from its $2.99 once-a-week promotion after a state auditor objected to the low price. A gallon of whole milk was priced at $5.69 Thursday at the Fresh Market in Perkins Rowe. State Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain said Fresh Market violated state regulations by selling milk below cost as part of a promotion.

Sounds like a bigger problem than that--where does the gov´t get off telling a merchant what he can sell his wares for?

I´m stunned by these prices. How can a gallon of milk cost more than double in LA than in IL?

I can remember growing up on the farm when I was a kid. We traded eggs for milk with our neighbor. Soon, we will be back to bartering for goods, until the Gov tries to outlaw it of course...

Found this fascinating since my state, PA, has exactly the opposite. I can walk into any convenience store and get milk for the same price as at the supermarket. (On the other hand, supermarkets can sell milk for less than the capped price and recently have done so. Maybe the law has been changed and I am ignorant of that.) It has something to do with the protection of our big dairy industry but not logical to me unless neighboring states would charge more for milk that they exported to PA than the cap if allowed.

This is beyond what the government can do, what does Bobby Jindal have to say about this?

Big Brother is watching you...

I certainly hope that Governor Jindal is aware of this and takes action. He tends to be a very consistant conservative, and this afront to free market capatism sounds far more like something coming from the Øvomit administration than from the state level of government...

Pennsylvania´s Milk Marketing Board regulates the sale of milk here in the state.

A few years ago they went after Pa. milk producers who put ´not made from cows treated with BHT hormone´ on labels.

The MMB [at the behest of BHT using dairies] said that this would give those putting this disclaimer on their packaging an UNFAIR advantage over milk producers who DID used BHT hormone .......... even though the state and FDA said that consumption of milk from BHT cows was ´safe´ to drink.

As far as I know NONE of the milk now sold a local markets comes from BHT using dairies. ............... no one here would but it.

It cost $3 just to walk near a Fresh Market. They are by far the most expensive store I´ve ever been to. I go only for the unusual items they have. But the local Kroger is starting to put a challenge in that category without the premium pricing.

$5.69 for a gallon of milk???? What is it packed in, gold cartons??? GEEZ! We can still get a gallon of milk here for under $4--which I still think is ridiculously high. Why is the price of milk so high anyway? Is it all the government intervention? No opportunity for competition? Sickening...

Come to Canada to see the awesome things a Milk Marketing Board can do for free trade (not).
There´s a good reason for the brisk cross-border trade in milk (and cheese) being purchased in the USA by Canadians who live close enough to the border to do it.

It doesn´t matter. There are enough people with milk allergies or lactose intolerance that the nanny state will eventually get around to banning it altogether. A group of leftie doctors has already asked the USDA to ban milk from schools -- not just full-fat or chocolate milk, but all milk.

This problem existed in Louisiana a few decades ago. A popular local supermarket owner, John Schwegmann, successfully fought against milk price-fixing. He had prior experience--in 1948 he fought against price-fixing on liquor, and won.

Back to milk--it took John eight years but he won the case against milk price-fixing in the early 1970s.

It seems that those who don´t believe in free competition, as John did, have gone back to their old unfair trade practices.

(I came to know then-Senator Schwegmann through work in animal welfare. He was a kind man as well as a great businessman. I showed him around a notorious parish dog pound--he had no idea of its deplorable condition, was overcome and tears rolled down his cheeks. Thereafter he helped us pressure the parish to build a new facility with humane staff. John owned several well-loved dogs found abandoned in his supermarket parking lots.)

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued. The gun was fired during the struggle, but police

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100. From January to February, the price index for uncooked ground beef rose from 248.864 to 258.323, its highest level ever. The 258.323 price index also indicates that the

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
