Sonny Perdue Sworn in as 31st U.S. Secretary of Agriculture
(Washington, D.C., April 25, 2017) – Sonny Perdue was sworn in as the 31st U.S. Secretary of Agriculture by fellow Georgian and Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Clarence Thomas in a brief ceremony today at the Supreme Court building. The U.S. Senate confirmed Secretary Perdue by a vote of 87-to-11 on Monday evening. After Secretary Perdue took the oath of office, he addressed employees at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) before getting to work on his first day. Also this morning, USDA launched his official Twitter handle: @SecretarySonny .

“The only legacy that I seek is the only one that any grandparent or parent seeks – to be good stewards, and to hand off our nation, our home, our fields, our forests, and our farms to the next generation in better shape than we found it,” Perdue said. “Making sure that Americans who make their livelihoods in the agriculture industry have the ability to thrive will be one of my top priorities. I am committed to serving the customers of USDA, and I will be an unapologetic advocate for American agriculture.”

Truck Talk with Nate Brekken
It’s time for a brake check everyone!

Preventive maintenance has always been top of mind for us at Strictly Diesel and with summer towing season just around the corner, we’re wondering - have you had your brakes checked recently? I have had to do a lot of driving on Phoenix roads lately. Stop lights and or signs don’t seem to mean what they used to! Whether it’s blatantly going through red lights, or not even trying to slow down on the yellows - we all seem to be in a hurry these days.

No matter where you go—there you are! LOL
There is an old story I am reminded of which goes like this: A new plant opened in this particular town and they were hiring. Folks from several neighboring towns were moving there in search of employment.
One day, this old man, who had a little country store on the edge of town, was lounging on his front porch. The new plant's manager sat with him to observe people as they came into town.

The Interview - with Al Dunning
The Interview - with Al Dunning

TELL US ABOUT THE ALMOSTA RANCH AND WHY YOUR PROGRAM HAS BEEN SPECIAL FOR SO MANY YEARS?
In 1970, John Hoyt and I moved to the Almosta Ranch on McDonald Drive and the canal bank in Scottsdale. A developer bought the property, bought out my lease, and I was able to purchase property near 108th St and Shea Blvd in 1973. At that time, that property was about 12 miles from any store and the city grew out to us. In the mid-1990s another developer came in and bought that property which had grown to 25 acres. I bought 40 acres of property on Jomax west of Scottsdale Road, which I intended to move the Almosta Ranch to in the future. That property seemed too close to town so I was able to sell it and acquire a 30-acre property on 160th St south of Rio Verde Drive in 1996, which at that time was still 12 miles to the nearest store. We moved out in 1999. On the 30 acres, I have developed one of the premier training facilities for all western events.

Now I know Northern AZ, you guys normally have to tie yourself down in April, but not the Valley of the Sun….. I think I seen Toto flying… You know, the dog from “Wizard of OZ” LOL….

Johnson Juggles Barrel Racing with Business
A rodeo arena and a tennis court may seem worlds apart for most people. But for Scottsdale barrel racer Barb Johnson, the two venues represent the two halves of her world, a unique blend that combines her passion with her commitment to family.

Johnson grew up in Arizona, the daughter of a Phoenix-raised cowboy and a Canadian, George Johnson. She inherited her love of riding from both parents and began by following in her late mother’s (Susan Johnson) footsteps into English disciplines like dressage and eventing.

But soon it was her father’s passion for rodeo, as well as an environment more friendly to Western riding, that had her picking up a barrel saddle. Her father rode bareback horses and bulls as well as team roped and Johnson followed his path to rodeo, buying her WPRA card by the time she was 20.
