Board plans 2060 Hot Spot meetings to discuss water conservation
Agriculture producers, water providers and interested citizens residing in and around 12 “Hot Spot” planning basins — those determined to have the most significant water supply challenges within the next 50 years — will be offered an opportunity to shape actions that could collectively satisfy future water demands and thus avoid substantial water shortages projected in those areas.
The meetings, presented by the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, will be March 11 in Goodwell at the Hughes Strong Auditorium on the Oklahoma Panhandle State University campus, March 12 at the Quartz Mountain Resort (north of Altus) and March 13 in Duncan at the Simmons Center. Each meeting will start at 6 p.m.

Cowboys return to ‘Amazing Race’
The Cowboys are back.
Brothers Jet and Cord McCoy of Tupelo return to prime-time television for season 24 of the reality series “The Amazing Race,” which airs at 7 p.m. Sundays on CBS. The All-Star Edition’s premier is this Sunday.
“We continually hear from fans that they want their favorites back, and we listened to them,” host Phil Keoghan said in a recent interview.
The brothers finished second last spring in season 16 of the reality program; they were knocked out of the competition after nine weeks during season 18. During the two spring seasons, the cowboys were recognized as fan favorites, which is why they were invited to be part of the All-Star Edition.
