MARCHING BAND:

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE PRECISION OF A MARCHING BAND AS THEY STEP IN UNISON DOWN THE STREETS OF TOWN OR THE FOOTBALL FIELD. BUT FOR ONE NORTH DAKOTA MUSICIAN, TAKING THOSE STEPS IS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE OF A CHILDHOOD DISEASE. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN SHE CAN'T TAKE PART IN THE PARADES AND PAGEANTRY. CLIFF NAYLOR FROM AGDAY AFFILIATE KFYR-TV HAS THE STORY OF A CLARINET PLAYER WHO HAS SIDE-STEPPED NUMEROUS CHALLENGES SO SHE CAN MARCH WITH HER FRIENDS.

OKLAHOMA CLEANUP:

OKLAHOMA HAS HAD ITS FAIR SHARE OF CHALLENGES RECENTLY. HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS DESCENDED UPON THE STATE TO HELP FARMERS WHEN NUMEROUS FIELDS BECAME UN-INTENTIONAL DUMPING GROUNDS FOLLOWING THAT MASSIVE TORNADO IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA. THAT SAME STORM KILLED TWO DOZEN PEOPLE, DESTROYED 11-HUNDRED HOMES AND LEVELED TWO ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. SEVEN CHILDREN DIED IN ONE OF THOSE SCHOOLS. FIELDS WERE LITTERED WITTH SHEETS OF TIN, SPLINTERED WOOD, INSULATION.

EVERYONE HAS THEIR FAVORITE AS LONG AS IT'S MADE IN THE LONE-STAR STATE.  FOR MARY MOORE IT'S THE ONE MADE IN HER OWN KITCHEN.  JESSICA DOMEL WITH THE TEXAS FARM BUREAU CONDUCTS A TASTE-TEST OF MOORE SALSA.
