[Bearbeiten] Outsiders pump $146K into Senate District 19 race
The stakes are high for partisan interests. More than $146,000 of outside money most of it benefiting the Democratic hopeful, Eloise Vitelli of Arrowsic has flowed into the race for the Senate District 19 seat as of today.
The seat was last held by Richmond Democrat Seth Goodall, who resigned in June to head the New England offices of the federal Small Business Administration. A win for the Republican hopeful, Paula Benoit of Phippsburg, who was elected to the seat in 2006 and beaten by Goodall in 2008 by 162 votes, would be a setback to Democrats as they gear up for a likely 2014 gubernatorial race between Gov. Paul LePage, 2nd District U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, their presumptive candidate, and independent Eliot Cutler. A third candidate, Green Independent Daniel Stromgren, is a social worker who describes himself as a moderate Green. The election could greatly affect legislative work: If Benoit or Stromgren win, Democrats' majority in the 35-member Maine Senate would be down to 18, the smallest number needed for a majority, making their proposals harder to pass. To gird against that possibility, Democrats and their allies have spent more than $96,000 in independent expenditures to bolster Vitelli's bid with campaign literature, ads and other campaign infrastructure, more than $78,000 from the state party committee itself as of today. Republican interests have countered, but they haven't kept pace, spending nearly $51,000 to help Benoit's campaign. More than $46,000 of it has come from the state party. Democrats, who had a 559-person edge over Republicans in the district in November,, have taken out more absentee ballots than Republicans. Still, the race looks close. Chief Deputy Secretary of State Barbara Redmond said 757 Democrats,wholesale nfl jerseys china, 705 Republicans, 36 Greens and 318 unenrolled voters requested absentee ballots as of this afternoon. Benoit and Vitelli mostly stick to party lines, highlighting their experience in business. Benoit says the state's welfare system is too large and crowding out funding for other priorities of government, echoing many legislative Republicans and LePage. Vitelli says workforce development, expanding health care access and supporting public education not the education-reform platform LePage is known for are her main priorities. Stromgren, the self-described moderate Green, says he's focused on solving Maine's problems,Pandora online radio drops listening limit for fre, not simply on saying what's wrong. Republican Paula Benoit Benoit, a former senator who has owned a Bath gift shop and co-owned a hair salon, said her experience tells her Maine has a shortage of qualified workers,Boldin white Elite Jerseys, largely because of a bloated welfare system. The federal Census Bureau said Maine in 2011 had the highest percentage of state and local government spending more than 23 percent. Benoit said that's created a generation of young people who don't know how to work. I've had people apply for jobs in my business where I knew I couldn't hire them, she said. They had never worked, and that's a burden on the business owner to have to pay them to train them how to even have decent manners with the clientele. In Augusta, she said her priorities will be on veteran issues and enhancing property-tax relief programs. Earlier this year, the Legislature repealed the Maine Residents Property Tax and Rent Refund Program, known as the circuit breaker, replacing it with a smaller credit. Since then, Mainers have complained to lawmakers that refunds have diminished dramatically. Benoit said she's seen that impact on the campaign trail. Those are real people, she said. It's hard to see that when you go door to door. (Continued on page 2)

[Bearbeiten] Small tea shop owner finds big support in efforts to rescue
ATLANTA A month after appearing on Fox News Channel, the owner of a small tea shop has received an outpouring of support in her grassroots effort to rescue young girls from the sex trafficking industry in India.
"I think I received around 600 emails within the first hour that the Fox piece aired," said Katrell Christie, owner of Dr. Bombay's Underwater Tea Party. "We sold more tea in the first four days than we sold in four years."
Since 2009, Christie has been selling tea from India's Darjeeling region and using the proceeds to help young women living in poverty. She calls it "The Learning Tea," because her program covers the girls' tuition through college in addition to funding basic living costs,Indianapolis Colts Jerseys China, such as food and safe dormitory housing.
During a 2009 trip to visit Darjeeling's tea plantations, Christie encountered a group of girls who were about to reach their orphanage's maximum age limit of 16. With limited education, these girls had few options in a region with widespread poverty and a rampant sex trafficking industry.
When Christie returned to her Atlanta tea shop and shared the girls' story, loyal customers chipped in and have helped her support 11 young women. But Christie hopes to help many more now that the story of her grassroots project has gone viral.
"I think it reached out to so many different kinds of people, women's issues, people who are in the food and tea industry,, small business owners, people who grew up and used education to get out of a life of poverty,What Are The U.S. Options In Syria- - Parallels - NPR," she said.
Over the past month, Christie has been contacted by businesses, church groups and individuals wanting to help out by buying her tea, selling it or helping her build additional centers for young women.
The owners of Chai Pani, a restaurant in nearby Decatur, have pledged to send at least one employee to India each year to assist Christie. The couple say they were inspired to help after watching her story.
"It speaks to how much of a difference one person can truly make," Molly Irani said.
"She's not just writing a check," added husband Meherwan Irani, who's originally from India. "She's actually reaching out and pulling somebody across that divide, especially those who are the least empowered and the least fortunate."
