Soaking rain likely for south Texas Panhandle

AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) - Isolated PM T-Storms will be possible in the Northeast Panhandles Friday evening but a large soaking rain event this weekend is a bit more appealing to the eye. Latest model guidance has started to trend south with the disturbance this weekend and that in turn will likely drag the best rain chances south as well but still anticipating a big rain event for the southern half of the High Plains.

Cannon Air Force Base ducking public meetings about ‘forever chemical’ risk, neighbors say

Dairy farmers and advocates near Cannon Air Force Base say officials there are stonewalling their call for transparency and more public forums to discuss PFAS contamination. In October 2018, representatives from the military base just outside of Clovis approached Art Schaap, a dairy farmer on more than 3,500 acres adjoining the base, and told him that they’d detected per- and polyfluorakyl substances in the water he used to sustain 5,200 cows. Known as “PFAS” and deemed “forever chemicals,” the substances are linked with various cancers in people and do not break down naturally. They are often found in the fire-fighting foam used regularly since the 1970s on military bases for firefighter training and to suppress fuel fires.

Cream of the Crop

A Clovis family blends Dutch excellence into their dairy products. FREANNA FRISIAN YOGHURT spells its product name the European way, with an “h.” That’s because the Clovis-based family business came to New Mexico from the Netherlands, where milk from Frisian cows produces a thin, pourable yogurt, which the company sells in plain, honey, and agave flavors. In 2003, seventh-generation dairy farmers Sjierkje and Andle van der Ploeg moved to Clovis; nine years later, they introduced Sjierkje’s beloved yogurt recipe to the marketplace. (Consider using the plain variety to make probiotic-rich salad dressings, and the slightly sweeter ones to gussy up granola.) “It’s the natural product, with nothing added,” says Karla, their daughter and marketing director. “In my dad’s mind, the cows are top performers. You need to feed them right, just like athletes.” The family empire includes the Freanna Farm Store, in Clovis, which sells yogurt, cream-top milk, and Andle’s homemade berry jam. Look for the van der Ploegs to continue expanding: Last year, son Jeroen opened the Milkshed, in Portales, a farm-to-table store that focuses on locally produced foods.
