EPA approves Sorghum Oil Pathway

WASHINGTON, DC—Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler approved sorghum oil as an eligible feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard during a signing event at EPA headquarters in Washington, D.C., with National Sorghum Producers leadership and Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Congressman Roger Marshall (R-KS).

The EPA’s announcement marks a significant step toward leveling the playing field for ethanol plants extracting oil from sorghum. NSP worked closely with the EPA for over two years to establish a biofuels pathway for sorghum oil in the RFS, and this announcement provides new market access for the crop.

Fair weather, keen competition marked the Pawnee County 4-H Fair

By Ray Kappel

Wasn’t that an exciting 4-H Fair? We were blessed with good weather and a lot of spirit around the Fairgrounds. The whole week was filled with keen competition and drama. For instance, there was the conclusion of the Beef Show.

4-H veterans Clay Schaardt and Dana Christen squared off with their animals for the title of Supreme Champion Market Beef. Schaardt had a Charolais mix steer that had an end weight of 1288 while Christen had an Angus heifer that had an end weight of 1308. As they turned their animals to walk past the judge you could see he had a tough decision to make.

Silent film daredevil comedian honored on 125th birthday

By Sharla Sitzman

Were you at the silent movie at the Burchard Lodge last Saturday night? It was Get Out & Get Under, a Harold Lloyd movie about a young man and his beloved car. It was so clever, the audience laughed, caught their collective breath, exclaimed, and clapped. And Marty Mincer of Hamburg, Iowa played ragtime piano just like in the old days, shifting gears as often as the car.

You weren’t there? You wish you had been? Too bad! It was a unique opportunity, part of a celebration of Harold Lloyd’s 125th birthday put on by the Harold Lloyd Museum and its owner, the Pawnee County Promotional Network. Marcia Borcher, president of PCPN, says that the museum was founded in 2003. It is in the house where Harold Lloyd was born.
