Cranberry wars continued

29 Nov

I’ve heard from two different sources (and the website confirms) that the judge has ruled on Ocean Spray’s motion to release the names of the John Does that are suing Ocean Spray in Massachusetts court.  My understanding is that the judge ruled that the names have to be released, but the document isn’t available to be downloaded, so I don’t have that proof, but I believe my sources.  So, there you have it, the names will have to be released for the suit to go forward.  I’m betting that at least some of the original plaintiffs are willing to go forward.  We will see.

Ocean Spray’s exceptional cranberry

27 Nov

So I saw this on Facebook and had to laugh…because I love the guys in the bog and it’s funny.  But this is serious stuff…and Ocean Spray is taking the lead on this war on sugar.  We should all give them a big thanks.
