Dan D'Ambrosio Free Press Staff Writer Published 10:00 p.m. UTC May 29, 2018 CHARLOTTE -- "Empty, empty. Empty, empty." Longtime dairy farmer Clark Hinsdale murmurs these words to himself as he surveys the vacant main barn at Nordic Farms from a catwalk high above hay-strewn floor. Sparrows flit among the steel girders of the expansive structure, the only other sound breaking the silence where once hundreds of dairy cows milled about, mooing and snorting. Thousands of schoolchildren, college students and dairy farmers traversed this catwalk since the barn was built in 2004 by Hinsdale and his father as a showcase of modern dairy farming. Robotic milkers were part of the draw. Busloads of farmers came from as far as Kentucky to witness the wonders of Nordic Farms, Hinsdale said. The barn was alive with nearly 300 cows then, roaming freely rather than constrained to stalls as they lined themselves up to be milked by the laser-guided robots. Hinsdale often played country music … [Read more...] about Vermont dairy is in crisis: 4 years of bad prices take a toll even on industry leaders

By Katie Dowd, SFGATE Updated 10:25 pm, Sunday, March 4, 2018 Now Playing: An FBI video soliciting help from the public in finding the Golden State Killer, a rapist and murderer who targeted the Sacramento area, Bay Area and further south from 1976-86. Media: San Francisco Chronicle When he broke into the Goleta condo of Robert Offerman and his girlfriend Debra Alexandria Manning on Dec. 30, 1979, he’d already committed dozens of rapes in Northern California. He was pathologically meticulous. Law enforcement knew he stalked his victims, usually choosing single women who lived in one-story homes. In previous cases, he’d broken into the home when it was unoccupied to prep the scene, removing bullets from guns, disabling lights and learning the layout of the house. But something went wrong that night. Offerman, whose hands were bound, managed to break free. Police think he attacked the intruder. He shot both Offerman and Manning dead. When police … [Read more...] about The sadistic Golden State Killer terrorized California 40 years ago. Is he still out there?
