An unusual sight in Worcester Wednesday morning – a moose wondering the streets of the city. The moose was captured on King Street and has now been relocated to the woods. At one point, the moose trots into the road, gets clipped by a car, gets back up and scampers off. A short time later, he was corralled and tranquilized. Witnesses say it was surreal. "I'm just glad he's alright, you know? Kids were all going to school at that time of the morning, and we were like kind of panicking, trying to tell people just waking up and coming out to their porches for their morning coffee, I'm like, 'Stay on your porch! There's a big animal.' It must weigh about 2,000 pounds or more. He's a big boy," said witness Dan Antonucci. Massachusetts Environmental Police tranquilized the moose, then Fisheries and Wildlife trucked the moose back to the woods.

The nation's most populated state has the most senior rights to river water. While the reservoir on the Nevada-Arizona border is key for those three lower Colorado River basin states, Lake Powell on the Arizona-Utah border is the guide for Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah in the upper basin.

Farmer David Armstrong recently finished planting what is likely the most challenging crop his family has ever cultivated since his ancestors started farming in 1865 - 20,000 coffee trees. Except Armstrong is not in the tropics of Central America - he is in Ventura, California, just 60 miles (97 km) away from downtown Los Angeles. "I guess now I can say I am a coffee farmer!" he said, after planting the last seedlings of high-quality varieties of arabica coffee long cultivated in sweltering equatorial climates.
