Center for Rural Affairs: Senate farm bill takes steps to level playing field for family farms

LYONS, NEBRASKA – Today, the Senate passed its version of the farm bill, with a 86-11 vote. In response, Center for Rural Affairs Senior Policy Associate Anna Johnson said the farm bill represents a “step in a positive direction for family farms.”

From The Desk Of Walters City Manager Shawn Strange

Dear Citizens,

Each year the Walters Volunteer Fire Department is required to obtain a permit from the State Fire Marshall’s Office. This allows the City of Walters Fire Department to set off Class B fireworks outside their jurisdiction for the 4th of July celebration.

This year, when it was time to apply for the permit, the land west of Sultan Park where the Fire Department normally sets off the fireworks was up for sale. At that time the Fire Department was unable to secure written permission for use of the land.

Technology, from robotics to ghost ships and unmanned fighter jets, can change the face of war, says AMAC

WASHINGTON, DC, June 8 – The robot soldiers of the future, so-called “battle bots,” are still in basic training.

“Being able to take soldiers out of harm’s way and accomplish the mission is a very attractive option to any commander,” according to Lt. Col. Jesse Curry, commander of the 82nd Brigade Engineer Battalion. Curry, participated in a recent joint American-British military exercise in Germany, designed to test what the army calls, the Robotic Complex Breach Concept.

“The exercise, which used robotic vehicles, proved the value of technology in warfare, paving the way for the development of humanoid robotic soldiers. The idea of replacing infantrymen with androids is a concept that may be in its infancy, but it is an attainable goal. Battlefield drones that can be armed with sniper rifles, machine guns and grenade launchers, already exist,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].
