One group of fishermen are trying to fill up a 53 foot trailer full of donations for hurricane Michael victims. So far, they’ve collected about four pallets worth of donations.

The group was overwhelmed by the devastation in the area and felt an urging desire to help.

"It was so many people offering to help and there were people we didn't even use as we were trying to make this happen. So it's been pretty cool," said Gabe Tibmore, with Alabama Fleet.

They’re collecting non-perishable food, water, non-carbonated drinks, diapers, formula, cleaning supplies, buckets, brooms, shovels, rags, paper towels, napkins, and first aid supplies.

You can drop off items at Nexus Cinema at 7070 Bruns Drive, in West Mobile. They are collecting Sunday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Anyone is welcome to donate. If you donate something when going to a movie, you can get a free popcorn.

Reduced Tariffs on Forestry Products

From The National Hardwood Lumber Association

The Trade and Tariff situation with China has moved to phase three.

On Monday, President Trump announced that the U.S would impose tariffs of 10% on approximately $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the United States effective Monday, September 24, 2018. Tariffs will rise to 25% on January 1, 2019. Following in this newsletter is the press release from the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). This action is the final step in imposing a third set of tariffs announced on July 10, 2018. Tariffs already exist on $50 billion in Chinese goods.

On Tuesday night the Chinese government announced they would proceed with retaliatory tariffs on U.S. products in response to the Trump Administration's imposition of 10% tariffs, including a variety of hardwood and hardwood products. Retaliatory tariffs will be imposed on $60 billion worth of U.S. exports at either a 5 percent or a 10 percent rate, starting the same day - Monday, September 24, 2018 starting at 12:01 a.m.

China's latest list of retaliatory tariffs does not appear to be changed from the proposed list released in early August. What has changed is the tariff rates on hardwoods which have reduced from a high of 25% proposed in August to 10% for most hardwood lumber and logs. Forest product numbers begin with 44 and start on page 11. Initial review indicates that tariffs will be applied as follows:

A 10 percent rate would apply to products originally slated for tariffs of 20% and 25%

A 5 percent rate would apply to products originally slated for tariffs 10% tariff and 5%

Please note that China has threatened to increase the rate back to 25% on by January 1, 2019 if the Trump Administration follows through with its threat to increase the rates on the latest round of tariffs on Chinese imports from 10%-25%. And, of course, there is nothing to stop the Chinese from increasing the rates earlier than January so the situation remains very fluid.
