Co. Fair icon Opal Rule named parade Grand Marshal

By Ray Kappel

Opal Rule never allowed her kids to use the word “hate”. She got that lesson from her mother who would scold her children whenever they said they hated someone. That lesson carried over to Opal’s family.

She said she really enjoys people, but the one thing that makes her sad about today’s people is their name-calling of each other.

Shelby Wilcox named Pawnee Co. Fair Queen

By Ray Kappel

One of the most competitive 4-H’ers was named Pawnee County Fair Queen recently. Shelby Wilcox, daughter of Mike and Deb Wilcox, was named to that honor.

If you have watched horse events at the County Fair the past few years, you will have noticed her name toward the top in several categories. She took Senior Showmanship last year, among several ribbons, and we expect when the 4-H part of the fair comes around she will again be among the winners. She also shows other animals.

The County Fair is in two parts this year to accommodate the Carnival. The regular Fair runs July 5-7 and the 4-H’ers will be competing July 23-28.
