DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. PROTESTS AND THREATENING  LANGUAGE OVER A GOVERNMENT APPROVED PIPELINE IS CAUSING SOME NORTH  DAKOTA FARMERS TO ARM THEMSELVES - FEARING FOR THEIR LIVES, THEIR  FAMILIES AND THEIR LIVEHLIHOOD. THE DEMONSTRATION BEGAN TWO MONTHS AGO IN RESPONSE TO THE "DAKOTA  ACCESS PIPELINE". TEXAS-BASED "ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS" IS BUILDING  THE PIPELINE FROM NORTH DAKOTA TO ILLINOIS. THE STANDING ROCK SIOUX TRIBE OPPOSES THE PIPELINE. THEY SAY THE ROUTE  CROSSES SACRED SITES AND BURIAL PLACES. THEY ALSO WORRY ABOUT POLLUTED DRINKING WATER IF THE PIPELINE  RUPTURES. 27-ARRESTS WERE MADE MONDAY, THE SINGLE HIGHEST TOTAL SINCE  DEMONSTRATIONS BEGAN. OVER 100 PROTESTERS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED SINCE  AUGUST. THIS WEEK'S PROTESTS WERE DESCRIBED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AS A RIOT.   OTHERS SAY THE ACTIONS OF THE ACTIVISTS WERE PEACEFUL.  MASKED PROTESTERS CONFRONTED A NEWS CREW FROM OUR AFFILIATE IN  BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA - KFYR-TV.  ACCORDING TO THE T-V STATION, OTHER  DEMONSTRATORS THREATENED THE CREW WITH BODILY HARM AND FORCED  THEM TO LEAVE A PUBIC ROADWAY. THE CONFRONTATION - WITH STRONG LANGUAGE - WAS ALL CAPTURED ON  CAMERA. "WE ARE HERE TO STOP THIS PIPELINE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY."  KANAHUS MANUEL FREEDOM,  BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA "WHO SAID YOU CAN COME IN HERE?" "OUR CAR IS OVER HERE."  "YOU GUYS NEED TO GO TO YOUR CAR AND GET THE F**K OUT OF HERE THEN."  PROTESTER "DON'T TALK TO US LIKE THAT SIR.  THERE IS NO NEED TO TALK TO US THAT WAY."   "I DON'T CARE, YOU DON'T NEED TO POST BULLS**T, KEEP IT MOVING."  PROTESTER "THERE WERE SITUTATIONS WHERE PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE, LEGITIMATE MEDIA, THAT WAS THERE TO  FILM IT WERE BEING STOPPED.""DO YOU HAVE A PRESS PASS?" "WERE BEING QUESTIONED AS TO THEIR CREDENTIALS." "PUT YOUR HAND IN FRONT OF HIS CAMERA."  PROTESTER "WHO ARE THEY TO ASK THIS?  THEY'RE ON SOMEBODY ELSE'S PROPERTY."  "SHUT THE F**K UP, IF YOU KEEP TALKING DUDE I'M GOING TO F**KING KICK YOUR ASS BRO."  FARMERS BRINGING IN THE 2016 CROP NEAR THE PROTEST SITE HAVE HAD TO  WORK AROUND THE CONFLICT.  BUT NOW SOME FARMERS ARE FEELING THAT  THEIR LIVES COULD BE IN DANGER. KFYR'S CLIFF NAYLOR SAYS SOME  PRODUCERS ARE TAKING EXTREME MEASURES TO STAY SAFE. WHEN JARED ERNST HEADS OUT TO WORK HIS FIELDS, HE'S CARRYING AN  EXTRA PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. I'VE BEEN CARRYING A SIDEARM ON  ME EVERYWHERE I GO.  I HAVE A SMALL REVOLVER THAT I CARRY, MY WIFE HAS  STARTED CARRYING, A BUNCH OF THE NEIGHBORS HAVE STARTED CARRYING  FIREARMS IN THEIR VEHICLES.  I THINK THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE CARRYING  ON THEM LIKE I AM, YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.ERNST SAYS HIS DECISION TO ARM HIMSELF DATES BACK TO AN INCIDENT THAT  OCCURRED WHEN HE SAYS DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE PROTESTERS DROVE  THROUGH HIS ALFALFA FIELD TO UNLOAD A TRAILER OF HORSES. WHEN THEY WERE IN THE FIELD I HAD ASKED THEM TO GET OFF  THE FIELD, THEY WERE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THEY WERE TRESPASSING.   ONE OF THE INDIVIDUALS SAID IT IS NATIVE LAND AND THAT I NEEDED TO LEAVE.   THERE WERE A FEW THAT CAME UP SWINGING LARIATS, KIND'A MAKES A GUY  NERVOUS. ERNST SAYS THE CONFRONTATION ENDED WITHOUT INCIDENT, BUT HE'S NOW  ERRING ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION.  CODY HALL, THE SPOKESMEN FOR THE RED  WARRIOR CAMP SAYS NONE OF THE DEMONSTRATORS ARE VIOLENT. WE DON'T HAVE A WEAPONS SO THOSE THAT ARE ARMING THEMSELVES IN A WAR ARE BEING FEAR  MONGERED BY OFFICIALS. ERNST SAYS LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS WERE NOT PRESENT THE DAY HE  ENCOUNTERED PROTESTERS. IT'S A LAST MEASURE, FIRST STEP IS IF ANYTHING HAPPENS, CALL  LAW ENFORCEMENT.  I VISITED WITH A COUPLE OF DEPUTIES THIS MORNING,  THEY SAID BY ALL MEANS CARRY. PROTECT YOURSELVES, IF THERE'S AN  ALTERCATION CALL THEM, AND IF IT ESCALATES TO A POINT WHERE YOU'RE IN  FEAR OF YOUR LIFE, DO WHAT YOU NEED TO, TO PROTECT YOURSELF. HALL SAYS ANYONE WHO IS ARMING THEMSELVES IS OVER REACTING. WE'RE A VERY COMPASSIONATE, LOVING PEOPLE AND THAT  CONSISTS OF EVERYONE AT THE CAMP. "CAN'T DRINK OIL, KEEP IT IN THE SOIL. WATER IS LIFE."  "NOT A PEACEFUL PROTEST, NOT A PRAYERFUL PROTEST.  THEY SAY THAT BUT THEY DISQUISE THEIR  CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR BEHIND IT."  CASS COUNTY SHERIFF PAUL D. LANEY "I ASK YOU TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS."  PROTESTER "YOU GUYS TENSIONS ARE HIGH HERE. IT'S PROBABLY BEST TO LEAVE." "WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?"  IN ADDITION TO ARMING THEMSELVES, ERNST SAYS AREA FARMERS ARE SENDING  DECOY VEHICLES DOWN COUNTRY ROADS BEFORE THEY MOVE COMBINES FROM  FIELD TO FIELD TO ENSURE THEY ARE NOT STOPPED.  HE SAYS PRODUCERS  ALSO DRIVE HEAVY EQUIPMENT HOME TO THE YARD EVERY NIGHT BECAUSE  THEY FEAR IT WILL BE VANDALIZED IF IT IS LEFT UNATTENDED IN THE FIELD. I'M CLIFF NAYLOR REPORTING FOR AGDAY .   THE U-S ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS APPROVED THE PROJECT THIS PAST  SUMMER. BUT CONSTRUCTION CAME TO A HALT WHILE THE COURTS REVIEWED  THE TRIBE'S COMPLAINTS. JUST LAST WEEKEND, A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT  RULED IN FAVOR OF THE COMPANY FOR THE PROJECT TO CONTINUES.

VILSACK ON AGRITALK
TOM VILSACK STEPPING AWAY FROM HIS DUTIES AS SECRETARY OF AG, TO  SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN. HE SPOKE TO MIKE ADAMS ON AGRITALK THURSDAY...INCLUDING THE TRANS  PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP. HIS CURRENT BOSS--PRESIDENT OBAMA--SUPPORTS THE 12 NATION PACT. SECRETARY CLINTON HAS BEEN VOCAL IN HER OPPOSITION. SAYS ADMITS ITS DISAGREEMENT WITH CLINTON BUT SAYS ULTIMATELY, IT'S  CONGRESS' DECISION TO PASS IT. WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY AND ITS RULES, VILSACK BELIEVES A CLINTON ADMINISTRATION WILL CLARIFY WATERS OF THE  U.S. "THAT HAS BEEN THE PROBLEM WITH WATERS OF THE U.S. I THINK IT'S BEEN AN INABILITY TO  COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WHAT IS AND ISN'T AND SOMETIMES IT'S DIFFICULT WHEN YOU'RE DEALING  WITH FARMLAND. 26 IS THAT DITCH IN OR OUT? I THINK WHAT YOU WOULD SEE FROM A CLINTON EPA IS AN  EFFFORT TO HAVE IMPLEMENTATION OF REGULATIONS WHERE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BETTER UNDERSTANDING  AND CLARITY OF WHAT'S IN AND NOT IN."> <"I THINK YOU'VE PUT YOUR FINGER ON A VERY SPECIFIC ISSUE AND ONE THAT CAN AND NEEDS TO BE  ADDRESSED IN FUTURE ADMINISTRATION WHICH PROVIDES CERTAINTITY. THAT IF FARMERS OR ANY BUSINESS  OWNER FOR THAT MATTER IN GOOD FAITH GOES THROUGH THE PROCESS, MAKES INVESTMENTS, THAT AT THE  END OF THE DAY, THEY RECEIVE SOME DEGREE OF ASSURANCE THAT ONCE THEY MAKE THOSE  INVESTMENTS THAT THE RULES AREN'T GOING TO BE CHANGED BEFORE THEY HAVE IN A SENSE BE ABLE TO RECOOP THAT INVESTMENT. THAT WAS IN A SENSE WHAT WAS DONE WITH THE ENDANGERED SPECIES  ACT,"VILSACK ALSO SUGGESTING IF CLINTON DOES WIN HE WILL NOT BE SERVING AS  SECRETARY OF AG--SAYING SOME TIMES CHANGE IS GOOD. TO HEAR MORE OF THIS INTERVIEW GO TO  AGRI-TALK.COM OR THE FARM  JOURNAL RADIO APP. 

CROP COMMENTS
CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES. MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW WITH A LOOK AT TODAY'S CROP COMMENTS. MIKE.  GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.  LET'S START OFF IN EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA.  KERRY BALDWIN IS WORKING ON CORN HARVEST. HE SAYS YIELDS ARE VERY GOOD.  MOISTURE CONTENT IS HANGING AROUND THE 18 PERCENT MARK..  HE FINISHED SOYBEANS AND IS HAPPY WITH THE YIELD.  USDA SAYS 10 PERCENT OF THE NORTH DAKOTA CORN CROP IS HARVESTED.  THAT'S 10 POINTS BEHIND THE 5 YEAR AVERAGE.  AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS. 

TEASE
COMING UP OUR PARTNERS AT PROFARMER ARE HERE WITH FRESH ANALYSIS OF  THE LATEST SUPPLY DEMAND REPORT INCLUDING A LOOK AT COTTON. AT FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE - WE'LL TALK ABOUT WEED MANAGEMENT. . .AND  WHY THE JOB IS AS IMPORTANT AS EVER BEFORE. PLUS WHAT DO YOU THINK OF FAIR FOOD?  MEET A TEXAS MAN WHO THINKS IT'S  SO POPULAR THAT PEOPLE WILL WANT HIS FRIED FOOD - EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT AT  THE FAIRGROUNDS.

AGRIBUSINESS
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.  COTTON RALLIED AFTER WEDNESDAY'S SUPPLY DEMAND REPORT. USDA PROJECTING 2017 COTTON SUPPLIES TO BE 12% SMALLER THAN  PREVIOUSLY FORECAST.  CHIP FLOREY AND DAVIS MICHELSON JOIN US WITH MORE REPORT ANALYSIS IN THIS WEEK'S PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING. WELL CHIP USDA RELEASED SOME KEY REPORTS THIS WEEK. WE GOT A CROP  PRODUCTION. WE GOT SUPPLY AND DEMAND. WHY DON'T WE START WITH WHEAT  MARKET IN DESPERATE NEED OF SOME UPWARD MOMENTUM HERE. ANYTHING  FOR US THERE? YOU KNOW THEY ADDED TWENTY FIVE MILLION BUSHELS TO THE WHEAT EXPORT  ESTIMATE. I THINK THAT WAS A PRETTY IMPORTANT MOVE FOR THIS MARKET  WE'VE BEEN SEEING GOOD EXPORTS AS SALES WEEKS BUT NOTHING THAT'S  REALLY BLOWN THE MARKET AWAY. NINE SEVENTY FIVE MILLION BUSHELS ON  WHEAT EXPORTS I THINK THAT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO. BUT LOOK  AT THEM ALL COMBINED. WHEN YOU ADD CORN AND SOYBEANS, WHEAT  TOGETHER, IT'S OVER FIVE POINT TWO BILLION BUSHELS OF EXPORTS. I MEAN  IT'S A PHENOMENAL NUMBER AND WHEN YOU START GETTING INTO THAT, BOY  YOU REALLY REALLY NEED TO PUSH HARD OK LET'S RUN THE TABLE HERE AND  HIT COTTON. YEA I DON'T I YOU KNOW THE THE COTTON CROP ESTIMATE, THE  YIELD WAS OFF FIVE POUNDS PER ACRE FROM LAST MONTH. I THINK THAT'S A  REAL UNKNOWN FACTOR FOR THIS COTTON MARKET GOING FORWARD BECAUSE  OF SOME OF THE RAINS WE'VE HAD SINCE THAT YIELD SURVEY WAS DONE IF  THERE'S ANY OF IT AT I WOULD SAY THAT THERE'S MORE DOWNSIDE RISK TO THE  COTTON CROP. AND THEN ON THE EXPORT SIDE ADDED A HALF A MILLION BALES  TO THE EXPORTS, GOT IT UP TO TWELVE MILLION BALES THAT'S A PRETTY  IMPRESSIVE NUMBER. AND AGAIN IT'S KIND OF A PROVE THAT WE CAN DO IT TYPE  ATTITUDE. ANY SIGN OF A OF A ROADBLOCK TO GETTING TO TWELVE MILLION  BALES INS CAN BE NEGATIVE FOR THE MARKET . OK SO SOME LOFTY EXPORT  PROJECTIONS IN THIS OCTOBER'S REPORT FROM USDA. FOR ALL THE EDITORS  HERE PRO FARMER ITS DAVIS MICHAELSEN WITH CHIP FLORY. YOU'RE A FARMER.  AND YOU ARE RELENTLESS.  WE'RE RELENTLESS TOO.   VISIT MYCOGEN-DOT-COM, OR YOUR LOCAL MYCOGEN SEEDS DEALER TO LEARN  MORE ABOUT OUR RELENTLESS DEDICATION TO YOU.  

NATIONAL WEATHER
WELCOME BACK AGDAY AND HERE'S YOUR FRIDAY FOOTBALL FORECAST. MIKE, IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE  SOME GOOD GAMES THIS WEEKEND. YEAH, IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL HAVE SOME BIG ONES. WE'LL START  OFF WITH ALABAMA AT TENNESSEE. THAT'S A KICKOFF AT 3:30 P.M. IT LOOKS VARIABLY CLOUDY AND  THERE'S A CHANCE OF A SHOWER-THUNDER SHOWER FOR THAT GAME. SO, KEEP THAT IN MIND. 74 FALLING TO SIXTY EIGHT DEGREES. OHIO STATE AT WISCONSIN AT SEVEN P.M. AT CAMP RANDALL, CHANCE  OF SHOWERS THERE. IT'S VARIABLY CLOUDY BUT IT SHOULD STAY PRETTY STEADY IN THE MIDDLE SIXTIES.  AND A GAME THAT I'LL BE AT. THAT'S IOWA AT PURDUE. KICK- OFF THERE WILL BE NICE WEATHER. PARTLY  SUNNY AND MILD. SIXTY NINE AND A KICKOFF SEVENTY FOUR DEGREES BY THE FOURTH QUARTER. NOW  TAKING A LOOK OF THE DROUGHT MONITOR, YOU CAN SEE IT CONTINUES TO BE VERY DRY IN MUCH OF THE  SOUTH EAST, MUCH OF THE NORTHEAST AND WE'VE SEEN THIS AREA EXPAND WESTWARD. SO LET'S GO  BACK A MONTH. AND YOU CAN SEE IT WASN'T TOO BAD, SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY BUT AS WE  MOVE THROUGH THE LAST FOUR WEEKS WE'VE SEEN THAT AREA EXPAND TOWARD THE DRY AREA IN  CENTRAL OKLAHOMA AND SO THAT'S A CONCERN IN THAT AREA. ALTHOUGH I DON'T THINK WE'RE LOOKING AT  A A DRY PERIOD COMING UP BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION AND YOU CAN SEE THE AREA IN  WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA HAS ACTUALLY IMPROVED A LITTLE BIT. IT'S STILL VERY DRY CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN  CALIFORNIA. BUT THERE'S A LOT OF RAIN COMING IN A NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. YOU CAN SEE THAT RIGHT NOW THAT FIRST SYSTEM COMING THROUGH SHOWERS AND EVEN SOME  THUNDERSHOWERS THERE. SPOTTY THUNDERSTORMS IN SOUTHERN PLAINS WITH THIS A LINGERING  STATIONARY FRONT OTHERWISE A COOL HIGH PRESSURE MOVING ACROSS A GREAT LAKES TODAY. MOVING  EASTWARD AND RIGHT BEHIND AND IT'S A PRETTY NICE WARM UP IN THE PLAINS STATES LATER ON TODAY.  NOW THE NEXT SYSTEM IS GOING TO BE VERY POWERFUL LOOKING JUST WATCHED A MAP OF THE LIVE ON  THE WEST COAST HIGH PRESSURE A BUILDING IN BEHIND THE FIRST ONE WILL JUST GIVE YOU A SLIGHT  REPRIEVE FROM THE RAIN IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES. STILL SOME SPOTTY SHOWERS AND THUNDER FROM  CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE SOUTHEAST. HEADING THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AND THAT  STATIONARY FRONT KIND OF OUT LINGERS IN THE SOUTHEAST BUT MOST OF YOU WILL STAY DRY SOME SHOWERS DEVELOPING THEN AS YOU CAN SEE OUT AHEAD OF THAT FIRST COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH  THE NORTHERN PLAINS INTO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES AND THIS IS A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM. IT'S  GOING TO BRING A LOT OF RAIN TO THE WEST COAST. ALREADY HAS OVER THE PAST THIRTY SIX HOURS YOU  SEE SOME OF THE HIGHER AMOUNTS ADDING ON THE NEXT THIRTY SIX, WILL GET A FEW SPOTS IN THE  SOUTHERN PLAINS INTO THE SOUTHEAST MIGHT GET AN INCH OR SO BUT MOST AREAS YOU'LL SEE LESS  THAN THAT. BUT OUR COMPUTER MODELS ACTUALLY SHOWING SOME AREAS GETTING OVER SIX INCHES OF  RAIN OVER A THREE DAY PERIOD THERE, MIGHT EVEN BE A LITTLE MORE THAN THAT FROM NORTHERN  CALIFORNIA UP THE COAST TO WESTERN WASHINGTON. TAKE A LOOK OF SNOWFALL, NOT A LOT HERE  OBVIOUSLY BUT SOME SPOTS IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES, HIGHER ELEVATIONS MIGHT GET A FEW INCHES  OF THE WET STUFF. OR IT'S THE WHITE STUFF.  I SHOULD SAY REALLY WET SNOW TEMPERATURES IN THE  EIGHTIES THIS AFTERNOON, WESTERN PLAINS AND THE SOUTHEAST. OTHERWISE COOL FOR THIS TIME OF THE  OTHER GREAT LAKES INTO THE NORTHEAST. AND YOU CAN SEE, IT STAYS MORE MILD NOW ACROSS THE  PLAINS AS WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING. AND THEN,TAKING A LOOK AT TOMORROW AFTERNOON,  THAT WARM AIR JUST KEEPS EXPANDING NORTHEASTWARD AGAIN BRINGING IT BACK TOWARD NORMAL FOR  MOST OF THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY. THERE'S A JET STREAMING SAVE CAN AND GONE TO A ZONAL FLOW.  WE DO SEE THE TROUGH OFF THE WEST COAST BRINGING IN STORM AFTER STORM FOR A FEW DAYS AND  THEN THAT DEVELOPS IN THE EASTERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY BY LATER NEXT WEEK.

REGIONAL WEATHER
THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL, SPOKANE, WASHINGTON  WINDY WITH CLOUDS AND SHOWERS HIGH JUMP FOR UP TO A FIFTY EIGHT DEGREES. DENTON, TEXAS MAY BE A MORNING THUNDERSTORM, OTHERWISE A MIX OF CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. HIGH OF EIGHTY ONE AND  FRANKFORT, KENTUCKY A BIG DEAL OF SUNSHINE AND PLEASANT.. THE HIGH ROUND SEVENTY ONE.

GREAT AMERICAN BARNS
TODAY'S GREAT AMERICAN BARN HAS A FIERY PAST. THIS BARN IS LOCATED IN  THE VILLAGE OF ALASKA, WISCONSIN. THAT'S ALONG THE SHORES OF LAKE  MICHIGAN. THE OWNER, NORM RAY, SAYS THE BARN IS NOT IN REAL GOOD  SHAPE.  BUT IT HAS AN INTERESTING PAST. IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE  TIMBERS INSIDE THE BARN, YOU'LL NOTICE THERE ARE SCORCH MARKS. NORM  SAYS TO THE BEST OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE, THERE WAS NEVER A FIRE IN THE  BARN. SO WHY THE SCORCH MARKS. THEY THINK THE WOOD MAY HAVE COME  FROM TREES THAT BURNED IN THE "GREAT PESHTIGO <PESH-TIH-GO> FIRE OF  1871. YOU MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THAT FIRE. THAT'S BECAUSE IT STARTED  ON THE VERY SAME DAY AS THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE - OCTOBER 8TH OF 1871.  THE PESHTIGO FIRE WAS MOSTLY OVERLOOKED. EVEN THOUGH THOUSANDS OF  ACRES OF FOREST LAND BURNED AND AS MANY AS 24-HUNDRED PEOPLE DIED.  THE FIRE WAS SO BIG, THAT EMBERS ACTUALLY JUMPED ACROSS THE GREEN BAY  - THE BODY OF WATER, NOT THE CITY - AND STARTED FIRES.  OUR THANKS TO NORM RAY AND FAMILY FOR SHARING THIS GREAT AMERICAN  BARN. AND DON'T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US - JUST LIKE THE RAY  FAMILY.
