Feral hogs continue to be a major problem in Arkansas, causing more than $19 million yearly to the state's agriculture industry alone, according the Arkansas Department of Agriculture.

Thunderstorms brought abundant lightning and rain to Central Oregon on Saturday.

Cherry growers are trying to stop the spread of a disease that can decimate their crops, known as “little cherry disease.” Trees with a little cherry disease produce a small, pale, lower-sugar fruit that can’t be sold.
