Man Shot, Horse Killed In Prather

Glenn Champ has been arrested.

Tulare County sheriff's deputies found Champ just south of Goshen.

He will be turned over to the Fresno County Sheriff's Department.

Fresno deputies were looking for Champ in connection with a shooting in Prather.

Deputies say he shot his neighbor on Lynx Road following an argument.

Champ ran for California governor last year.

The man he's accused of shooting was shot in his stomach and was airlifted to the hospital.

The victim's son was reportedly there when his father was shot.

Deputies say Champ then shot and killed a horse for unknown reasons.

Champ is facing charges for attempted murder, child endangerment, and animal cruelty.

The shooting victim's condition was not known at the time of this report.

Porterville Courthouse Expands Services

Starting January 21, the South County Justice Center in Porterville will begin accepting filings for Domestic Violence restraining orders. Only those filings that do not involve minor children will be processed and heard in Porterville.

All other filings involving minor children will continue to be filed and heard in the Visalia Division.

Due to budget constraints, the South County Justice Center does not have the resources necessary to staff a Family Court Services office to mediate cases involving minor children as required under the Family Code. The court hopes to expand services to include custody and visitation matters in the future.

Cotton Plowdown Dates Set

Cotton Plowdown Dates Set

It’s that time of year again!

All cotton stalks must be shredded, uprooted, and plowed by December 20, 2013. Starting on the 20th, the staff of the County Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer’s Office will be citing fields that are not in compliance with the regulations. Fines for non-compliance are set at $500 plus $5.00 per acre.

Cotton growers are required to comply with the Cotton Plowdown Regulations.The regulations were established in 1967 to combat the threat of spreading populations of Pink Bollworm, a worldwide pest of cotton.

This means anyone planting cotton in the San Joaquin Valley must shred and uproot cotton stalks, and then mix the debris with the soil. Doing this was shown to kill overwintering Pink Bollworm larvae.
