Crime Stoppers Car Show This Saturday

The 6th annual Amarillo Crime Stoppers Car Show is coming up on Saturday.
 
This year it comes with air conditioning, after previously being in the parking lot of Amarillo ISD. Corporal Sean Slover, coordinator for the Crime Stoppers program explained to KGNC why they made the move.
 
"Last year we were down in numbers and that was one of the reasons why we moved to an indoor facility. This year, our registration is up, matter of fact the highest they've ever been," Slover said. 
 
And you might want to get there early.
 
"Providing we don't run out of room, we're still trying to work on exactly how many cars we can fit. I think we can fit about 150, 160 cars," Slover said.
 
There will be lots of different classes to look at, like a street rod, foreign, special interest, and 2 classes of Corvettes. Doors open to the public at 10 in the north and south exhibit halls of the Amarillo Civic Center. $5 to get in and children under ten are free. All proceeds benefit Crime Stoppers and Student Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers Fugitive of the Week

Amarillo Crime Stoppers is asking for help finding their fugitive of the week.  
 
Daniel Lee Ainsworth has a parole warrant for delivery of a controlled substance and a bond surrender warrant out of Potter county for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  
 
If you have any information on Ainsworth, call Crime Stoppers at 374-4400 or submit a tip online at amapolice.org. A reward of up to $300 is being offered if your anonymous tip leads to his arrest.

Boys Ranch Rodeo and Adventure Fest

Cal Farley's will host their biggest event of the year this weekend.
 
The Boys Ranch Rodeo and Adventurefest celebrates its 70th year and Cary Varnado said they'll have all the same events, with a little extra.
 
"Folks in the Texas panhandle area are used to some of the traditional favorites at the rodeo: mutton busting, stick horse racing, the bronc busting, but with it being an anniversary year we're going to be introducing a few new events this year," Varnado said.
 
Your $10 ticket let's you in to Adventurefest which starts at 10, the BBQ lunch held at noon, and then the rodeo. There will also be a raffle with prizes valued at more than $41,500, including a 2014 Dodge Ram.
 
You can grab tickets by calling 1-800-687-3722 or at the gate. Admission for 6 year olds and under are free.
 

Buffalo Stadium Bridge Detours

Football fans going to high school and WT games this season will see detours in and out of Kimbrough stadium.

TXDOT has closed the Buffalo Stadium bridge over US 87, which is the main road into and out of the stadium. The overpass is being replaced because of structural deficiencies found in the bridge during a routine inspection.  

The estimated cost of the project is $2 million and should be finished by late November.

Farm Bill Decision Aid

It will be at least a couple months before enrollment begins for the new Farm Bill programs PLC and ARC. But for farmers who would like some preliminary information about how the two programs will work, a decision aid has been created by the Agricultural & Food Policy Center at Texas A&M University.

Beef Grading May Change

We’ve all gotten used to grades for beef like prime, choice, and select. But there might be changes in the offing as USDA is seeking public input on possible revisions to the grading standards. USDA says it is considering changes because there have been a lot of improvements and trends in animal raising and feeding during the tme since the standards were originally adopted.  For more information about this subject and how you can comment on proposed changes, go here http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/ams.printData.do?template=printPage&navID=&page=printPage&dDocId=STELPRDC5108681&dID=203169&wf=false&docTitle=USDA+Seeks+Input+on+Revisions+to+Beef+Grading+Standards

  

Cotton Program Sign-Up

Farmers can now enroll in the Cotton Transition Assistance Program. CTAP will provide cotton farmers in the 2014 crop year with interim payments until USDA can begin offering the new insurance product known as the Stacked Income Protection Plan, which was created in the new Farm Bill. For more information, go here

CRP Changes Proposed

With the new Farm Bill, some changes are coming to the Conservation Reserve Program. The Farm Service Agency of USDA says the changes include some that are intended to make CRP more flexible when it comes to emergency haying and grazing in drought-designated areas. Other changes are aimed at getting more of what is considered environmentally sensitive land enrolled in CRP. FSA is seeking input from land owners and producers on the proposed changes.

Water Regulation Proposals Controversial

Many in agriculture are concerned about what is commonly referred to as “The Waters of the U.S. Rule.” This “rule” involves the Clean Water Act, and what many fear is an attempt by EPA to reinterpret the Act in ways that would make even small bodies of water like ditches and ponds subject to regulation and thereby impose new restrictions on common agricultural practices like fertilizer and herbicide application. A public comments period regarding the Clean Water Act proposals is open through Oct. 20.
