Senate Minority Leader Asks USDA to Extend Hemp Comments Period

The Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, has requested the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to prolong the public comment duration for the newly released draft hemp rules. He said the reason for his request is because he is concerned about some prohibitory rules included therein.

On Wednesday, Schumer visited a hemp farm in New York, Miller Organics; while there, he discussed the economic potential of industrial hemp and its derivatives. In the month of October, the USDA released draft rules for the crop and although some stakeholders believe they are headed on…

Dec 6, 2019

DENVER — Fourth-year quarterback Brandon Allen sparked Denver's stagnant offense, throwing for two touchdowns in his first career NFL start and leading the Broncos past the stumbling Cleveland Browns 24-19 Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles run over Buffalo Bills in 31-13 win

Dec 6, 2019

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Lane Johnson isn't sure what the Eagles proved except to silence their critics for one week after their run game and defense trampled the Buffalo Bills. "What are we, 4-4? It looks like we're average," the starting right tackle said, injecting a profanity into his comment for emphasis. "We needed a damn win. That's really what it all boiled down to. It felt good to get one." Having spent the past week listening to how awful and soft they were following a 37-10 loss at Dallas, the Eagles responded by snapping a two-game skid with a...

Missed PAT sends Falcons home empty from long trip

Dec 6, 2019

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Atlanta Falcons mounted a massive second-half comeback, rallying from 17 down to pull within a point of tying Arizona. All they needed was an extra point to tie the game and hopefully send it to overtime, possibly pull out a much-needed win. When Matt Bryant's try sailed wide left with 1:53 left, the Falcons fell flat again, adding another way to lose in a season quickly spiraling away from them. Of all Atlanta's 2019 missteps, Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Cardinals may hurt the worst — and possibly be the final act of coach Dan Quinn's...
