Chattanooga Pedicabs Going Out of Business

by Chloe' Morrison, Nooga.com 

Buzz Chattanooga Pedicabs is going out of business, the owner announced Tuesday afternoon.

In a prepared statement, owner Christian “Thor” Thoreson said lack of support and cooperation from city leaders and local businesses contributed to the closure.

"For the last year and a half, we have been battling the city of Chattanooga, the city traffic engineer and the City Council members over the many restrictions on our business that will not allow us to better serve the residents as well as the many tourists to our city," according to the statement.

"Add to that the many Chattanooga businesses that have been unwilling to participate in advertising on the cabs, including the businesses in Chattanooga that are in the business of bringing tourism to our city, in the business of revitalizing the downtown area, and in the business of promoting commerce in the city," Thoreson said, according to the statement.

Thoreson also said that business leaders kept the company's dispatch busy for pickups and deliveries, but they would not advertise to support the service.

"So we are throwing in the towel," according to the statement. "The fight is not worth it anymore. We are in need of focusing our energy on something more positive."

Thoreson said business leaders might regroup and come back in the spring or move to another city. Or he might just sell the bikes.

The statement thanked those who supported the business.

"It has been an eye-opening experience of the narrow-mindedness of our city leaders as well as those responsible for the edification and growth of the city of Chattanooga," Thoreson said. "I wonder now, how is that Chattanooga has come so far already, and really how much further along could it really be by now?" Chattanooga Pedicabs Going Out of Business

ECONOMY-THE DAY AHEAD

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Investors will gain some insight into the housing market during the first half of the week.

Today, the National Association of Realtors will release existing home sales for August.

On Wednesday, the Commerce Department will report on new home sales for August.

SIEMENS-DRESSER-RAND

HOUSTON (AP) -- German engineering company Siemens AG has reached a deal to acquire oilfield equipment maker Dresser-Rand for $7.6 billion.

Under the deal announced early Monday in Germany, Siemens will pay $83 per common share of Dresser-Rand Group Inc., $3.09 more than the company's closing share price Friday. The deal includes assumption of debt.

Dresser-Rand's board of directors unanimously recommended the offer to shareholders, and Siemens expects to close the deal by summer, according to a statement from the company.

Dresser-Rand, based in Houston and Paris, has annual revenue of around $3 billion. It said in a statement Siemens will operate the company as its oil and gas business under the Dresser-Rand brand and retain its executive team. It said the oil and gas business will be based in Houston.

GAS PRICES

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) -- A national survey says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline has dropped another 9 cents over the last two weeks, to $3.37, bringing the decline to 34 cents over the last 13 weeks.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that falling crude oil prices drove the declines, but the drop was also heavily impacted by a crash in prices of ethanol and the fact that winter-grade gasoline costs less to produce. If crude prices don't rise, the average prices at the pump may drop a few more cents.

Jackson, Mississippi, had the lowest price among cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states, with $3.03 a gallon. San Francisco had the highest at $3.79 a gallon.

The average price for a gallon in California is $3.67, down 8 cents from two weeks ago, with Fresno the low average in the state at $3.56.

The average price for a gallon of midgrade gasoline was $3.59 a gallon, and premium was $3.74.

GENERAL MOTORS-RECALL

DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors is recalling 221,558 Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Impala sedans because the brake pads can stay partially engaged even when they're not needed, increasing the risk of a fire.

The recall involves Cadillacs from the 2013-2015 model years and Impalas from the 2014 and 2015 model years. There are 205,309 vehicles affected in the U.S.; the rest of the vehicles are in Canada and elsewhere.

GM says the electronic parking brake arm that applies pressure to the back of the brake pads may not fully retract after use. If the brake pads stay partially engaged with the rotor, excessive brake heat may result in a fire.

GM says it knows of no accidents or injuries related to the defect.

GM will notify owners and repair the vehicles for free.

CHRYSLER RECALL

DETROIT (AP) -- Chrysler is recalling nearly 189,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos in the U.S. to fix a fuel pump problem that can cause the SUVs to stall.

The recall covers some 2011 models with 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8 engines. Chrysler says a relay can fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

Chrysler traced the problem to a spring that can deform because of heat.

The vehicles also might not start, and the fuel pump could keep working even when the engine is shut off. The company says that as of Aug. 25 it's not aware of any crashes or injuries from the problem.

Dealers will replace the fuel pump relay for free starting Oct. 24.

CHINA-SUSPECT MEAT

BEIJING (AP) -- A U.S. meat supplier is laying off most of the workforce of a Chinese subsidiary accused of selling expired meat to KFC, McDonald's and other customers.

OSI Group said Monday it will lay off 340 employees of Shanghai Husi Food Co., which has been under investigation since a Shanghai TV station reported in July it supplied expired meat.

Six employees were arrested in August on suspicion of producing substandard products.

OSI Group said a small number of employees would be kept on in Shanghai while the investigation is underway. It said production was unlikely to resume in the near future. It said the company suffered "significant financial and customer losses."

CLIMATE EMISSIONS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Scientists estimate that the world spewed far more carbon pollution into the air last year than ever before.

That was mostly because of increases from the three biggest polluters -- China, the United States and India.

The reports released Sunday come as world leaders gather at the United Nations to talk about how to reduce heat-trapping gases.

According to the calculations, the world pumped more than 39 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the air last year by burning coal, oil and gas. That was 2.3 percent more than the previous year.

The International Global Carbon Project team published their reports in the scientific journals Nature Geoscience and Nature Climate Change.

CLEAN AIR VEHICLES LAWS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law several bills designed to boost use of clean-air vehicles in his state.

One bill signed Sunday allows 15,000 additional electric and partial zero-emissions vehicles, or 70,000 total vehicles, to get green stickers that allow driving in carpool lanes even when solo.

Another requires freeway high-occupancy toll lane operators to allow clean air vehicles to drive for free or reduced rates. Such roads exist in Orange and Riverside counties, and the San Francisco area.

Another bill requires a property owner, rather than the person leasing it, to install an electric vehicle charging station and its infrastructure in most cases.

California makes up 40 percent of the nation's electric vehicle sales and the governor's press office says it surpassed more than 100,000 sold earlier this month.

G20-FINANCE MINISTERS

SYDNEY (AP) -- Finance chiefs from the 20 largest economies say they are close to reaching their goal of boosting world GDP by more than $2 trillion over the next five years.

Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey is the host of the Group of 20 meeting in the northern Australian city of Cairns. He said on Sunday that the G-20 finance ministers and central bankers had agreed to more than 900 policy initiatives to meet the goal they set earlier this year.

The G-20 said an analysis of those initiatives show they should boost the combined gross domestic product of member countries by 1.8 percent above levels expected for the next five years. That's just short of the group's target of 2 percent.

LEAR PLANT-STRIKE

HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) -- Workers at a Lear Corp. plant in northwestern Indiana that makes automotive seats have approved an agreement that will end a two-tiered pay system.

The United Auto Workers said Sunday evening that members of Local 2335 had "overwhelmingly" approved the four-year contract. It did not give a specific vote count.

Workers at the Hammond plant make seats for the Explorer and Taurus models produced at Ford's Chicago Assembly Plant. The workers went on strike Sept. 13, but returned to work the next day after the tentative deal was reached.

The contract will end a system that locked newer workers into lower wages, and raise the top wage to $21.58 an hour.

Local 2335 President Jaime Luna says the deal could help thousands of autoworkers across the country.
