KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

Two people arrested in south-central Nebraska in January are facing possible prison time for hauling over 100 pounds of marijuana on Interstate 80, where a separate traffic stop on Monday, yielded the seizure of another 100 pounds of pot.

As theKearney Hub reports, authorities say a motorist saw and then picked up a package of marijuana that fell from a flatbed trailer being pulled by a pickup on I-80 on Jan. 19.

A Nebraska state trooper later discovered a false compartment on the bottom of the trailer containing 122 pounds of pot, with an estimated street value of $366,000.

The trailer was being pulled by 49-year-old Charlie Red of Sedalia, Colo. and 29-year-old Damaisy De La Caridad Rodriguez of Miami, Fla., who on Friday, pleaded no contest to felony distribution of marijuana. They face up to 20 years in prison.

According to the Grand Island Independent, 32-year-old Princess Smith of Elizabeth City, N.C., was charged with felony drug charges on Tuesday following Monday's traffic stop on I-80 that resulted in the seizure of 101 pounds of pot, with an estimated street value of $303,000.
