This lady loves demolition derby competition

By Ray Kappel
 
Glenette Kohake is one tough lady. So it shouldn’t surprise us that she is about the only female engaging in demolition derbies around the area. This Seneca, Kan. resident entered her first demolition derby Saturday in Blue Rapids, Kan. She got third and a standing ovation from the crowd.

Fair Queen, what the county fair means to her

By Joslyn Sharpe
 
Ribbons, friendships, and a whole lot of fun. These are all things that come to mind of me when I think of the Pawnee County Fair. The Fair has always been the biggest part of my summer. For me the fair is friendships, opportunities, and the continuation of a legacy. Being in 4H and participating in the fair has connected me to so many friends over the years. Showing during shows have given me the ability to talk to different kids who go to other schools in which I probably would not have had the pleasure of meeting.

NK Pullers ready to put on show

Look for the NK Pullers 7 p.m. Friday at the Pawnee County Fair, July 22. They will be making their first appearance as the reformed NK Pullers that was organized in the 1980s and then disbanded. NK Pro-Stock was originally organized in the late 1980’s The economy and other factors later phased out the group. A few years ago many pullers started to show an interest again The pullers started again as a non-sanctioned group to see if there was any interest. The group continued to grow. When there was enough interest, the NK group was reformed into an organization under a version of the old name NK Pullers Association. NK stands for Nebraska/Kansas, which represents much of this organization’s membership from both states. However as they continue to grow there are now many members joining from Missouri also.

Some changes for County 4-H Fair

By Ray Kappel
 
We’re on track. That’s the word of Karly Black, UNL Extension Educator of Pawnee County, about the 4-H part of the upcoming County Fair, July 20-23. New this year is a change in the livestock schedule. Swine will be shown Wednesday morning, July 20, at 8:30 a.m. It was moved to this date because last year, larger swine numbers made for a long day for competitors. They could have shown swine early in the morning last year and still be going at 6 p.m. as the livestock show progressed.
