GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IN A STUNNING TURN OF WHAT MANY THOUGHT WAS A SURE THING--THE HOUSE VOTES AGAINST A NEW FARM BILL.

IMMIGRATION:

ON THE SENATE SIDE OF THE CAPITOL IMMIGRATION REFORM TOOK CENTER STAGE,
REPUBLICAN SENATORS SEARCHING FOR COMPROMISE ON AN IMMIGRATION BILL HAVE ANNOUNCED AN AMENDMENT TO DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF AGENTS ALONG THE BORDER. THE AMENDMENT WOULD ALSO REQUIRE 700 NEWS MILES OF FENCING AND INCREASE THE USE OF HIGH-TECH TOOLS, LIKE DRONES.

SPIDER BITE TEST:

IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPIDERS - AND WE KNOW MANY OF YOU DON'T - THIS NEXT STORY MAY GIVE YOU THE SHIVERS. FOR DOCTORS, IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WHETHER YOU'VE BEEN BITTEN BY A BROWN RECLUSE. BUT AS IT TURNS OUT, A COMMON PREGNANCY TEST FOR CATTLE MAY HELP IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM. UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI CATTLE RESEARCH IS HELPING DOCTORS DEVELOP A BETTER TEST TO DIAGNOSE SPIDER BITES. KENT FADDIS WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI EXTENSION HAS MORE ON THIS RESEARCH.

PROFIT BRIEFING:

THE GRAIN MARKETS - ESPECIALLY CORN AND SOYBEANS - ARE SHOWING SOME MIXED SIGNALS. PART OF THAT MAY HAVE TO DO WITH THE UNCERTAINY OF CROP CONDITIONS AND ACREAGE.

AIRPLANE RESTORER:

FLOWN BY OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DURING WAR OR USED FOR CROP DUSTING, TRANSPORTATION EVEN GATHERING THE HERD, AIRPLANES ARE WOVEN INTO OUR NATION'S HISTORY. AND FOR ONE FAMILY IN TEXAS RECLAIMING THAT HISTORY IS THEIR LIFE'S WORK. TEXAS COUNTRY REPORTER BOB PHILLIPS INTRODUCES US TO THE MEN BEHIND THE MAGIC AT EZELL AVIATION.
