(HILL CITY,Kan.) — The heat and dry conditions don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon leaving anyone who uses water with a big problem. To get a firsthand look at some of the most drought-stricken areas in the state Governor Sam Brownback is trekking around on what he calls a “drought tour”.
“I am always amazed by the hope and resilience that people have”, says Governor Brownback.
Each day Governor Sam Brownback gets to hear tales of hope and resilience from people who are suffering in this drought but are trying to keep their spirits high.
Brownback had lunch with locals at a Mexican restaurant in Hill City on Tuesday…just one of many stops on his drought tour.
Rancher and farmer Brad Trexler says his Hill City farm is taking a beating this summer, he adds that coming out and sitting down with the governor as well as other local farmers helped him learn more about what can be done in dry times.
