Federal Forfeiture: Law, Policy And Practice, Greg Warchol, Dennis Payne, Brian Johnson

Greg Warchol

The purpose of this research is to first describe the origins and current state of federal asset forfeiture law, then examine of how property seized under the forfeiture laws for drug law violations is proceeded against by the federal government. The methodology, which is primarily exploratory, utilizes both qualitative and quantitative data. A sample of over 6000 federal administrative and judicial drug forfeiture cases are described and analyzed to construct a profile of the federal government's use of this policy. Findings raise questions about the use of forfeiture and the government's intent. Implications and suggestions for future research ...

The Family In The City, Frank F. Furstenberg Dec 1999

The Family In The City, Frank F. Furstenberg

Departmental Papers (Sociology)

Almost by definition the concentration of poverty is associated with the concentration of family problems and less well functioning communities. Researchers have had no problem documenting that crime, drug abuse, mental health problems, and school failure are all disproportionately located in the poorer communities in the United States, especially in very poor neighborhoods. However, for the author, that correlation of low income communities and problem behavior or low achievement among children does not necessarily demonstrate that families and children behave differently because they grow up in low income communities.


Zoning Ordinances And "Free Speech", Alan C. Weinstein Dec 1999

Zoning Ordinances And "Free Speech", Alan C. Weinstein

Law Faculty Articles and Essays

Over the past two decades there has been a marked expansion in legal challenges to local land use regulations claiming violations of the free speech clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. First Amendment claims can arise whenever government enacts or enforces zoning or other regulations that deal with uses such as billboards or adult entertainment businesses. This article discusses why this litigation is taking place, provides an overview of First Amendment law, and offers local officials some guidelines to help avoid potential legal challenges.

Employment Change In The Nonmetropolitan South: An Overview Of Recent Trends And Future Prospects, David L. Barkley Dec 1999

Employment Change In The Nonmetropolitan South: An Overview Of Recent Trends And Future Prospects, David L. Barkley

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Employment growth in the nonmetropolitan South exceeds the national average, yet job losses are the norm for many counties in the region. In addition, the earnings per job differential between workers in the rural South and the nation has widened. Recent changes in the economic environment promise new challenges for many southern nonmetropolitan communities. The new economy is characterized by continued growth in service-reIated activities, the rapid adoption of new technologies and production organizations. corporate restructuring and industry clustering, and enhanced competitiveness resulting from globalization of markets. The implications of these changes for labor demand in rural areas will vary ...


The Geography Of New Manufacturing Technology: Implications For The Nonmetropolitan South, David A. Mcgranahan Dec 1999

The Geography Of New Manufacturing Technology: Implications For The Nonmetropolitan South, David A. Mcgranahan

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Despite the growth in services, manufacturing remains an essential part of the nonmetropolitan South's economy, responsible for 25 percent of total personal earnings. But low-education nonmetropolitan areas, which gained more than their share of manufacturing jobs in the 1970s and 1980s, lost jobs in the 1990s. Their manufacturing base is threatened not only by low-wage competition from abroad, but also by the spread of new technologies, which is raising the demand for production worker skills. Data from the Economic Research Service Rural Manufacturing Survey (RMS) show that labor quality is a central problem for adopters, particularly in low-education areas ...


Functional Skill Requirements Of Manufacturing Employment In The Rural South, Timothy R. Wojan Dec 1999

Functional Skill Requirements Of Manufacturing Employment In The Rural South, Timothy R. Wojan

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This analysis compares the functional skill requirements of manufacturing employment in rural and urban areas of six Southern states. The General Educational Development-Reasoning Scale provides information on the cognitive requirements of various work tasks while Specific Vocational Preparation provides information on the time of training needed for average performance in a job. The analysis identifies three distinct patterns of comparative skill requirements. Traditional Rural Production is characterized by substantial low-skill employment in both rural and urban areas-the modest number of high-skilled workers are found predominantly in urban areas. Spatial Division of Labor Production is characterized by a large share of ...


What Does The Future Hold? What Globalization Might Mean For The Rural South, Amy K. Glasmeier, Robin M. Leichenko Dec 1999

What Does The Future Hold? What Globalization Might Mean For The Rural South, Amy K. Glasmeier, Robin M. Leichenko

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper considers the implications of economic globalization for rural communities in the U.S. South. Despite significant gains in average incomes and educational attainment in the South over the past 30 years, the paper finds that the rural South's longstanding reputation as the nation's low-wage, low-skilled region remains largely intact. In particular, manufacturing wages in the rural South have remained stagnant relative to the rest of the United States. Furthermore, as dominant sectors such as textiles and apparel continue to experience price competition and international pressure, there will likely be additional downward pressure on wages in low-skill ...


Spatial Labor Markets, New Economic Geography, And Urban-Rural Linkages: Implications For The Rural South, Mark S. Henry Dec 1999

Spatial Labor Markets, New Economic Geography, And Urban-Rural Linkages: Implications For The Rural South, Mark S. Henry

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

To reach the levels of prosperity in the urban South, rural leaders have a three-fold challenge: to improve human capital, to improve local amenities, and to identify the niche of rural communities in the new economic regions of the South, in other words, spatial labor markets will play a key role. The article first reviews key problems facing rural communities in the South that are likely to cause rural earnings-per-worker and employment opportunities to lag behind those in urban centers. Next, examples are given of the types of empirical and conceptual work needed to examine the role that space plays ...


Industry Clusters And Rural Labor Markets, G. Andrew Bernat Jr. Dec 1999

Industry Clusters And Rural Labor Markets, G. Andrew Bernat Jr.

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Along with the recent resurgence of interest in the agglomeration and clustering of economic activity, there has been increasing interest in industry clusters as a potential economic development strategy. Ultimately, the question of whether or not clusters are an appropriate focus of economic development strategies for rural areas depends on the relationship between clusters and local economic growth. The primary purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the issues involved in measuring the relationship between clusters and rural economic growth. Preliminary evidence of a positive association between industry clusters and rural earnings growth are presented, supporting the notion ...


Service Industries And Employment Growth In The Nonmetro South: A Geographical Perspective, William B. Beyers, Peter B. Nelson Dec 1999

Service Industries And Employment Growth In The Nonmetro South: A Geographical Perspective, William B. Beyers, Peter B. Nelson

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Service employment has grown rapidly in the nonmetro South in recent years, accounting for 87 percent of overall job growth in the 1985-1995 time period. This pace has been sustained in nonmetro areas that are adjacent to metro areas, as well as in more remote nonmetro areas that are not adjacent to metro areas. Retail, health, and producer services account for the largest share of service employment growth. In contrast to the United States as a whole, which experienced declines in manufacturing employment, the nonmetro South has had increases in manufacturing employment. This growth of manufacturing has stimulated the local ...

Bowls Everywhere But None To Match The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1999

Bowls Everywhere But None To Match The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

I entered a state of deep depression recently when I learned that the folks at Poulan are no longer sponsoring the Independence Bowl. The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl is no more. The irritating, loud and stupid relative of all the bowl games is gone. The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl has whacked its last weed.

Ddasaccident315, Humanitarian Demining Accident And Incident Database Dec 1999

Ddasaccident315, Humanitarian Demining Accident And Incident Database

Global CWD Repository

The accident occurred at 10:45 on December 24th 1999 during the manual demining of power lines between Maputo and Komatiport at the 88th tower about 8km from Moamba Town. The deminer was injured in an area considered to be densely mined during an attempt to enlarge the cleared area from 20 square metres to 40 square metres. While trying to cut some shrubs he made a "false move" and activated a mine outside his lane with his left foot. The mine was outside the "ring" and below a tree.


John Rocker's Si Interview, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1999

John Rocker's Si Interview, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

It wasn't all that long ago that John Rocker was complaining about being stereotyped by Met fans and New Yorkers. He said that New Yorkers seemed to think that everyone from Georgia had one tooth and married their cousin. The self-styled good old boy resented this sort of sweeping generalization about Georgians and Southerners.


New Immigrants Echo Nation's Diverse History, Chester Smolski Dec 1999

New Immigrants Echo Nation's Diverse History, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Having just eaten our way through Thanksgiving and having watched our school children do a variety of activities dealing with Indians and English settlers sharing the first bountiful harvest, we sometimes think that the English were the first Europeans to settle in what is now the United States. Nothing could be further from the truth."

Notre Dame On Probation: The Cost Of Selling Your Soul And The Ncaa As Judge, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Can we say that the final blow to the concept of intercollegiate athletic integrity has now been delivered? With the announcement Friday that Notre Dame has been placed on two years probation and lost two football scholarships, seemingly the last bastion of intercollegiate athletics has been tarnished. A sense of shame walks the campus beneath the Golden Dome.
