Full story: Monterey County Herald

Sara Lee is cutting the apron strings on its unit that bakes bread, selling it to Mexican bakery giant Grupo Bimbo for $959million as it looks to concentrate more on its coffee and meat businesses.

Where is the Federal Government when we need them? Who is enforcing the Sherman Antitrust Act?

How is it the #2 bakery in the US, although foreign owned, can buy 3rd largest bakery in the US and no-one says a word about the massive monopoly in the baking industry they are creating.

Who will protect the consumers? Where are our electeds? It's way to quiet. Bye bye to more American jobs.

These large bakeries should stop changing and cheapening the recipes that made them famous. The BrownBerry brand simply is non existent.

Not even close. do your homework on Bimbo, too much real work for cartels and margins at 1/10000000th of the drugs. Let's assume this was a joke.

Police-abuse panel falls prey to Norristown infighting. A year after Mayor Ted LeBlanc agreed to form the committee to field complaints, it has yet to meet. By Jeff Shields A three-member panel established last year to channel police abuse complaints in Norristown has never met, despite continuing tensions between police and critics within the community. Rochelle Griffin Culbreath, a member of Borough Council; Doris Smith Starks, a community volunteer; and Albert Jarman, pastor
of Ebenezer Methodist Church, were named to the committee by Norristown Mayor Ted LeBlanc in January 2003. Since then, the group has not addressed any reports of police
brutality. It has not taken in any formal complaints. Local NAACP president Lana Shells said she had never heard of the group. "We really didn't do anything," Starks said last week.
The committee came into being after angry residents held a rally for Shondra Comfort and Donovan Love, who were arrested in November 2002 after a scuffle with police. Montgomery County
District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. cleared the officers involved in that case, but residents still seethed at the way the couple were treated.
At that rally, DeLacy Davis, a police sergeant from East Orange, N.J., and founder of the group Black Cops Against Police Brutality; and Rochelle Bilal, secretary of the Philadelphia NAACP, complained that the Police Department's system of
taking complaints was intimidating to some. On the spot, LeBlanc agreed to form the committee. But now the members say that the failure of the committee is a direct result of Norristown's dysfunctional political situation.
Still happening today with police intimidateion.

ILuvMexMen and Desert Dust Devil haven't been on these threads in a long time and now I know why, they both work at the "BIMBO" factory.
Their jobs are to suck on the bread machine nozzles to free them of sticky dough. Bimbo picked the right pair for this job!! The one thing the two asked for was for the nozzles to be painted brown so they would feel right at home doing their jobs.

Here in Mexico I enjoyed the Sara Lee cakes, if I don't remember bad, something like 15-10 years ago, I bought them almost every weekend ( I gained a few kilos because of that ). Then they stop selling them in Mexico, I don't know why.

Hopefully with this, Sara Lee will return to Mexico.

Regards.
