Delta County Emergency Management Coordinator Monty Hobbs discusses recent activity in his office.  He says the county's grants from the Federal Emergency Management Center (FEMA) have been cut by 63 percent this year, and he's trying to get the county and the city of Cooper to make up the difference.  Also, Hobbs says he's attempting to develop an emergency operations center for the county.  On another subject, Cooper Review editor Cindy Roller discusses what has been a bumper cotton crop for Delta County.
