Navarro County Crimestoppers began advertis- ing with Henderson County media outlets late last week, saying someone in the western portion of the county, might have information about the crime. Police officials could not verify whether a tip to Crimestoppers led to Boelter. Drought (Continued from Page 1) Speakers included Dr. Jason Cleere, Extension Beef Specialist; Dr. Ron Gill, Extension Livestock Specialist; Dr. Larry Redmon, State Extension Forage Specialist; and John Reeves, Henderson County Farm Service Agency. "This is what the Extension Service does," said Henderson County Extension Agent Rick Hirsch, talking abom the wealth of information the sem- inar provided for producers. About The seminar covered such topics as culling herds, pasture management, drought man- agement, feeding alternatives, stretching hay supplies, and government relief programs. Hirsch said if a producer wasn't among the throngs at the seminar Thursday, they can get the information needed to manage the drought at the local Extension Office in Athens, 903-675-6130. Just how bad is the drought? According to the latest fig- ures from the Extension Service, estimated drought losses tbr the state have reached $4.1 billion - almost double the $2.1 billion lost in 1998. The losses include $2.5 bil- lion in crop losses and $1.6 bil- lion in livestock losses, ,according to a report released in August by Texas Cooperative Extension econo- mists. Earlier in the week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture annotmced that $780 million will be made available to assist producers around the country' to fight the effects of drought. A free Hay and Grazing Hotline is available to help livestock producers locate hay tbr sale and pastures tbr lease in Texas and out-of-state. The Hay and (3razing Hotline lists are on the Texas Department of Agriculture Web site at www.agr.state.tx.us under the "What's New" sedion. There is also a list of organ- ic hay suppliers, hay n'ans- porters, the weekly Iexas Hay Market Report and links to other hay sites and out-otZstate hay directories. ta3t #. nlot i)lt-ntcl, ix "We are your convenient neighborhood hardware & rental store" We're stocking our inventory for youl HARDWARE LINIE Falmmtm Pammts Lawn & Garden Automotive Builder Hardware Paint & .a. esr rles Nuts & 6ol -ASE & Metric tlect cai Mobile Home & RV Supplies Traclms Brush llog Treudu!n Mini F.zcavator Chain Sam tog spum Coacrete Plumbing Supplies *" Jadlhammers ?:: ~?i~il;: ?ill (Continued from Page 1) ' included think she really blows her gwammar and punctuation better than the letter below suggests, l printed it just as it came. I thought # really captw'ed her excitement and wonder at her first trip abroad So yesterday, we all went to London on a group excur- sion! It was not what I expected it to be like at all it's much different from what they show on the movies though it is beautiful!! It is so a huge city it really is and in some ways dirty! I only took a little pictures because we traveled a lot around in the bus touring so i couldnt get a lot of good shots and besides i will be going back later and will get better stops then. I did get some good stories for ya'll though. So our day started at the British LibraD' (which isn't a library at all it's a museum of different things, but of course we couldn't take pictures inside) which is very' sad. Things that i saw in there the original Beowulf literature, the origi- nal CanterbuD, Tales, tons of original works done by Beethoven, Mozart, and Chopin I even saw the deed to Shakespeares' home, Shakespeare's original sonnet book (that was amazing) other shakespear works, documents from british histo,old bible works and my personal favorite ( be sure to let Gary. know about this one morn) was the display on the Beatles!! It was a ease full of papers that they had wrote their first draft of lyrics on, signed records, pictures, all sorts of things, and they had a listening device next to it that you could listen to things they said and listen to their music t loved it!! I wasjammin!! After the British Library our bus driver took us on a tour of some cool things around London, like the London bridge, Parliament, Big Ben, etc He then let us off at some huge art gallery that Amanda and i went into for a little bit but neither one of us is huge art fans so we didnt stay but instead went down the road back to Parliament and Big Ben and hung out there for a little bit where we took pictures ,and just had :fun realizing that we were in London. It was cool because as I was standing in front of Big Ben the thought of J(mathan maybe being in that same spot two years ago at this time went through my head and it was so cool!! For dinner we were on our own so Amanda and I went to a pub that was really cool! We just had caesar salads and water but it was still pretty fun after dinner anaanda and i went into some gift shops just to look around killing time and we had so much fun we found the big police hats that we both wanted so bad but we didnt buy so we just took pictures instead!! We then had to meet back at the bus to head to (guess where?) Yes the Globe Theatre (can you believe that?) Shakespeare's Globe Theatre aghhh I was in heav- en it was amazing and we didnt just go see it we got to watch an actual play there. It was so cool we saw "Anthony and Cleopatra" l loved it but it was 3 hours long so we were all pretty tired by the end we finally got back to oxford around I in the morn- ing here and then we all crashed. But what an amazing day we had i hope y(m can enjoy these pictures even if they are somewhat crappy!! Oh i almost forgot to tell you next to the british library well down the street from it is Kings Cross Train Station (which was made famous from Harry Potter) our teacher told us we could go down there if we wanted to so Amanda and I hightailed it first thing when we got off the bus and to our amazement found yes you guessed it Plattbrm 9 3/4 you know from Harry Potter (it was so cool) and yes i took pictures with it (enjoy it!) Oh my gosh just getting to do that made my whole day really plus of course the globe theatre!! Enjoy again !!
