ROCKY FORD — With apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein: Oh, the farmer and the farmer should be friends. That was the theme of a far-ranging meeting of the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District Wednesday. About 40 people from well augmentation groups, ditches and other farm interests attended the meeting. State Engineer Dick Wolfe and John Stulp, water adviser to John Hickenlooper, also attended the meeting.
