Triplett named National Champion

Triplett named National Champion

DeKalb High School’s Cole Triplett was crowned National Champion at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. Triplett competed in the Ag Science Fair competition where he chose to tackle a problem in his family’s own flock of sheep. “My brother began a sheep operation several years ago, which now includes our entire family”, said Triplett. “One of the biggest problems in our flock is the protozoa called Coccidia. I learned this when our local vet taught me how to conduct fecal counts on our sheep”, said Triplett.” Coccidia can cause diarrhea, dehydration, starvation, and damage to the G.I tract of a sheep. Triplett added, “During the first year, we had lost several sheep to Coccidia and I knew to prevent further death loss I wanted to find a more efficient way to treat Coccidia. I realized that I could turn this into a science fair experiment and help spread the word about it and tell people about this more effective way to treat Coccidia.” After Triplets’ realization he decided to compete in the Agriculture Science Fair competition.

Tornado leaves path of destruction across New Boston

Tornado leaves path of destruction across New Boston

A strong frontal boundary made its way across Northeast Texas Friday night, spawning a tornado outbreak that wreaked havoc all across the region, including here in Bowie County. According to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, Damage assessments in our area have confirmed seven total tornadoes (1 EF-3, 3 EF-2, and 3 EF-1s) so far. Damage surveys will continue in all four of our states today. Those seven conformed tornadoes include the EF-3 that hit near Clarksville and continued for 58 miles on into McCurtain County, Oklahoma. It also includes the EF-2 that hit near Cason in Morris County, an EF-1 conformed near Pittsburg, and what is tentatively labeled as an EF-2 here in New Boston that had a 13.5 mile track. The ongoing damage assessments could change those reports in the coming days. As the storms fired up late Friday afternoon, the first tornadoes were seen to the southwest of Bowie County as tornadic winds created large swaths of destruction in several different towns including Hughes Springs, Cason, Clarksville and the Paris area.
