Article Image Alt Text

The Table Rock Fair is for kids of all ages. The Community Club abandoned fire works in favor of a strolling magician, barbershop singers, two flow artists, a balloon twister, and a juggler. There will be face painting by Daisy and Lollipop. They are clowns! And Dizzi Da Clown will be there with her bubble show. The Flint Hills Outlaw Gang may walk the streets of Table Rock, too. Looking for someone or someplace to rob. One will wear a marshal’s star. Who will be arrested? How much will be their bail? And what the heck is a flow artist! Come to Table Rock on August 10 and see for yourself!

Check the schedule in your paper to see the many things going on. The show and shine car show will provide some beautiful vehicles to ogle, from Noon to 4. During the car show, there will be a fun competition amongst the littlest kids on the Giddy Up . After the parade, the older kids can do the pedal tractor pull. There are bounce houses, too!

A library is a vital part of a community

Americans love their libraries! In a national survey by Public Agenda, almost half the respondents gave libraries an “A” – higher than public schools or the police. More than 6 in 10 marked “strongly agree” that public libraries are essential for “maintaining a productive community.”

Many of us think of a library as a place that houses and checks out books. Libraries certainly do that, but they offer much, much more to the communities they serve. Libraries are central to healthy communities and are sometimes known as the “living room” of the community. Everyone is welcome in the library, and all are free to pursue their individual interests.

Libraries offer Internet connectivity to everyone in the community; they provide a safe space for children and teens; they offer reading choices in a wide variety of formats; they preserve local history and make it accessible; and they contribute to the local economy.

Enroll in Conservation Reserve Programs by August 23rd

Farmers and ranchers with expiring contracts with the Conservation Reserve Program, or who are interested in enrolling land in the Continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CCRP) should take note of an upcoming deadline. The U.S. Department of Agriculture - Farm Service Agency has announced the deadline to enroll in either the Conservation Reserve Program - Transition Incentive Program (CRP-TIP) or CCRP is set for Aug. 23, 2019.

CRP-TIP is a farm bill program that seeks to support landowners and new farmers at the same time. Landowners with CRP contracts expiring this year are eligible to enroll in CRP-TIP and receive two additional years worth of payments. To enroll, they must rent or sell the land exiting CRP to a beginning, sociallydisadvantaged, or veteran farmer or rancher. That farmer or rancher in turn must have a conservation plan in place for the land. CRP-TIP offers new farmers and ranchers a path to access land, and supports landowners in offering it.

The story of our Juggler coming to the Table Rock Fair

Article Image Alt Text

Somewhere in Kansas City lives a seven-year-old boy named Braeden. His father juggles knives and fire sticks, stuff like that. His mother paints faces. She’s a clown. Braeden calls them mom and dad, but the public knows them as Blipey and Annie Mae Allure. Blipey & Annie Mae do much more than juggle and paint, too, but Braeden is blah about it.. Would you like a balloon giraffe? Son, shall we go to the park and toss nine balls in the air and keep them there? No thanks. There may be some seven-year-olds who come to the Table Rock Fair who are much more excited about what Braeden’s dad can do than Braeden is. Braeden and his mom are headed for a different event, so kids here will have Blipey all for themselves.

Erik Pratt, for that is the true name of Braeden’s dad, will join the busy slate of street performers at the Table Rock Fair

Demise of a Home

Article Image Alt Text

The house at 610 Pennsylvania in Table Rock was built in 1925. It was then just a few doors down from the grand home and hospital of Dr. Edward McCrea which sat at the corner and was only a few years old itself. Many people made a living getting that house built. A roofer laid out a shake roof. Plastering was spread over lathes, usually a two and even threeperson job. A carpenter carefully installed dark walnut trim around the windows and doors and made a room divider with columns and bookcases. Somebody wall papered or painted or both. Somewhere in a factory, people earned money making a sofa, a chair, a kitchen table, a sink, a mattress, a dresser, a rug, a set of dishes, a tablecloth, curtains.
