California’s wildfires continue, and as the smoke somewhat clears, the impact of those fires on the state’s agricultural industries is becoming more apparent. We have an update. Hurricane Laura’s impact on the Louisiana-Texas coastline last week decimated some of that areas biggest crops, including one that Sacramento Valley farmers are very familiar with. We have the details. Rural post offices in California are an important lifeline for residents and farmers. We take a look at the funding struggles to keep them operating efficiently in the current political environment.
