It’s a family affair at the fair

OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE | AUGUST 30, 2018

BY LAURA KNOWLTON REPORTER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET — Harper, Wyatt and Bristol, brother and sisters, from Tonasket, are excited to be entering a steer, pig, bunny and chicken in this year’s Okanogan County Fair. The fair is something that is very important to the family. The children’s mother, Karen Latimer, has been involved with the fair since she was two-years-old. Latimer says that teaching her children the responsibility of raising animals that are completely dependant on them and how to manage their money, while reaping the rewards of their hard work, are all values she wants to teach her children through the experience of the fair. “The kids spend most of their summer days in with their animals in the pens. Whether they are working with them or feeding them. They always go out first thing in the morning and again in the evening before they eat their own dinner,” said Latimer. Along with raising the animals, the children have learned perse-

According to the children’s mother, waiting for fair to arrive is hard for the kids to understand. The kids love dressing their chickens and bunnies and making creative costumes for their animals. Raising animals brings lots of adventure and fun moments for the kids. “Early this spring, while having their cousins over, the piglets’ gate had been left open and the

tiny little things escaped. It was a wild race to capture them. It was hilarious watching the kids trying to get them back in their pen,” she said. The fair is a family event and one the Latimer family looks forward to every year. The kids are already thinking of what they want to take next year. “We love the fair, it’s a great learning experience for the kids and we look forward to it year round.”

Cory siblings are fair veterans BY LAURA KNOWLTON REPORTER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET — The brother and sister duo, Grace Cory and Lucas Cory, love this time of year, and are excitedly ready for the 2018 Okanogan County Fair. Grace, a junior and Lucas a freshman are part of FFA at the Tonasket High School. They are taking their pigs, Fiona and Gina. Prior to high school the two children entered their livestock through the Junior Open program. The children have always been apart of the fair, also taking jams, and entering photography. The Cory family said that Fair is a big part of their

life and they look forward to it every year. According to the Cory’s, routine is key for success when raising pigs. “We are learning to be independent, how to get up early, get the feed and start cleaning the stalls and be done before a certain time,” said Grace,“ I have learned a lot about responsibility from raising and showing pigs over the six years that I have participated in fair, I have only ever taken pigs, no other animal.” Lucas, who is also a wrestler for the Tonasket High School, is a bit more quiet than his sister Grace. According to his mother, Jenny Cory, he is less social and has grown

to be more outgoing and confident through the process. “Lucas is not at all, an all eyes on me kind of person, so being in the ring has been a huge deal for him,” said Jenny, “The fair has been very good for him.” Grace says that this is her fifth year and her family helps to make Fair experience possible. “Our family pushes us through so that we do good, and make us do everything ourselves, so that we can do it without them,” Lucas shared that there’s a lot of pressure building, as the fair gets closer, the pigs need to weigh in at least 230 pounds.

“Mine is fine but Grace’s pig is a bit behind,” said Lucas. The last time the kids weighed their pigs, which

was a sixteen day span between weigh ins, each pig had gained thirty five pounds. Both kids said that their

pigs have a very friendly personalities and are easy going and while it’s s a lot work and commitment, it’s worth it all.

Kylar Anderson readies ‘Copper’ for the fair

OKANOGAN VALLEY GAZETTE-TRIBUNE | AUGUST 30, 2018

BY GARY A. DE VON EDITOR@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE — Last year Kylar Anderson made the transition from raising a chicken to exhibit at the Okanogan County Fair to a pig. This will be her second year of showing a pig at the fair. Having won a Reserve Champion for her chicken in the past, she followed up in 2017 with a Reserve Grand Champion with her pig. She has high hopes again this year with her new pig, Copper. But first, Copper needs to go on a diet. “He was within two pounds of not being eligible,” said Kylar, who was making sure her hog wasn’t getting into any of the other pigs feed and only got to eat his own. For now her pig and a couple others are being

boarded near Lake Osoyoos — they’ve even gotten to go for a swim in the lake on a hot summer day. In addition to making sure the pigs get fed and groomed, she also trains with them, getting them ready for the show ring.

Kylar, who paid for the piglet she bought in Curlew, also has to also pay for the pig’s feed herself, according to her mom, Kindra Anderson. For now, says Kylar, the pig is eating “regular” feed. It will be switched to
