Something for everyone

Western Underground performs live

Watch cars crash into each other. Buy a lamb or pig. See a python or alligator, eat cotton candy and sample some soda, ice cream or a funnel cake. It’s all part of the Park County Fair. All it takes is to be passing through Powell the week of July 24-29. This year’s fair theme – “Where Traditions Remain and Memories Begin” — is a nod to the Wyoming State Fair’s centennial celebration in Douglas in 2012. Some competitions take place early in the week, such as horse classes for both mini and regular equines, a cat show and the 4-H Fashion Revue, but the Park County Fair really gets under way with free admission and an evening of raucous pig mud wrestling on Tuesday, July 24, in front of the grandstand. The Royal West Amusements carnival officially opens on the midway Wednesday at noon and will continue daily from noon to midnight through Saturday. Monster trucks take to the arena on Wednesday, July 25, a new fair event this year. Thursday night features the second annual Park County’s Got Talent Show. Acts audition for a chance to be in this home-grown talent show. On Friday evening, the country band Western Underground takes the stage with opening act Charley Jenkins. The late Wyoming singer Chris LeDoux formed the “rodeo rock and roll” band Western Underground in the late 1980s. After his death in 2005, the band members decided to continue performing on their own. “There’s nothing slick about Western Underground,” according to the band’s website. It’s “just a love for clean, hard drivin’ rodeo rock and roll, and a desire to carry on the great music of Chris LeDoux, while we create some music of our own.” The six-man band is on tour — or as they say, “on the trail” — this summer, performing in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana, see Fair, Page 3

Fair: Continued from Page 2 including performances at the Wyoming and Montana state fairs. Saturday is parade day at the Park County Fair. The kids’ day parade will fill main street in downtown Powell Saturday morning, followed by the main fair parade in all its color and pageantry. The ever-popular demolition derby closes out fair week on Saturday night. The crash ‘em up action is co-sponsored in a partnership between the fair and the Powell Lions Club. As always, the Park County Fair will also feature a wide variety of continuous entertainment by musicians, cloggers, a ventriloquist, a caricaturist and others on the free stage. There will be a wonderful selection of foods from dozens of vendors and buildings filled with exhibits — from canned goods to cucumbers and culinary to clothing. Like all good county fairs, this one will host non-stop 4-H and FFA contests revolving around dogs, cats, poultry, swine, sheep, rabbits, goats, cattle and horses. Daily gate admission is $5 per person — children 12 and younger are admitted free. Weekly passes are available for $10. Daily parking passes are $5, and weekly parking passes can be purchased for $10.

Fair entries top 9,000 Your neighbors have been busy. The 2012 Park County Fair will display more than 9,000 entries created, produced, harvested or owned by people who live throughout the county.

Fair director Jennifer Lohrenz was excited to learn from her staffers last week that fair entries totaled 9,160 to date. “Rock on,” she said. “We just beat last year.” That number could still grow, since people can bring in floriculture and horticulture entries (plants) for judging on Tuesday, July 24. Lohrenz said the 2011 fair featured about 8,800 entries.

Park County’s Got Talent

By randal HoroBik Tribune Sports Editor

I

t will be a little bit of old and a whole lot new when Park County’s Got Talent raises the curtain on its second summer as a grandstand event at the Park County Fair. Thirteen acts from around the region will square off in competition. Patterned after the hit television series “America’s Got Talent,” the Park County version was a late addition to the fair lineup a year ago. It proved wildly popular and packed the grandstand. This year’s version looks to be even better. For starters, the number of people auditioning for a coveted spot on the performance stage nearly doubled this year as more than 30 acts tried out. From that pool, a total of 13 will take the stage for the fair performance. This year’s acts range from dancers, singers showcasing everything from modern music to numbers dating back to the 1940s. A harmonica-playing comedian and a piano player are also among the night’s performances. In all, 10 of this year’s performers will appear in their first Park County’s Got Talent performance. Three will be returning from last year’s show. “We’ve got almost the entire Big Horn Basin covered,” said Christi Greaham, who organized the event for the second summer. “We’ve got participants from Powell, Cody, Greybull, Basin, Lovell, Byron, Deaver and Burlington.” Those taking the stage will range in age

from 8 to 78 years old. The showcase of locally-grown talents should run just shy of two hours. Performers are battling for cash prizes

and trophies, which will be determined based on a formula that weighs the judges’ vote at 75 percent of the value. The remainder of the decision is based upon the

audience’s reaction to each of the acts. Similar to last year, admission to Park County’s Got Talent will be free. The show starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 26.

It’s not a typical petting zoo. These guys might best be seen from far away. Danny Conner’s Reptile Adventures, a free act during the Park County Fair, will give folks a chance to see some animals that don’t come to the fair very often: pythons, anacondas, vipers, cobras, crocodiles and alligators. Conner was born and raised in Houston and now lives in the Texas Hill Country. His traveling companions are not for the squeamish and also include scorpions, spiders, lizards, turtles and tortoises. Conner brings more than 30 years of experiences with reptiles to the Park County Fair. The fair board has long hoped for a show like this. “I’m really excited about the reptiles,” said fair director Jennifer Lohrenz. “I know the board’s thrilled too.” She said board members had discussed bringing a reptile show to the fair in the past. “The opportunity came up and they just jumped on it,” she said.

just right: in an hour, she can zip through drawings for 20 to 25 people, which is an average of about one drawing every three minutes. If you unfamiliar with the work of a caricature artist, here’s a definition from Grant Wright, contained in his 1904 book “The Art of Caricature”: “A caricature is a pictorial representation in which the beauties are concealed and the peculiarities or defects exaggerated to make the person or thing ridiculous, while a general likeness is retained.” In the introduction, Wright wrote that caricature is “good drawing, refined and controlled to produce a humorous effect.”

10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H HCELEBRATION! HHHHHHHHHHHH Royal West Amusements Inc. is bringing its carnival to the Park County Fair again. The company, in business nearly 50 years and based in the western region for 40 years, provides family-based fun to events throughout the western states and comes to Powell on a mid-summer swing through Butte, Wolf Creek, Shelby, Lewiston and Sidney, Mont., and Riverton. The company is also sending its attractions to Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Texas this .24.11 year. 9.11 to 7 d thru 7.1 at noon The carnival officially Gooopens Wednesday, July 25. Special deals on ride wristbands may be available at the company’s website, www.carnivalmidwayfun.com. The carnival features a different assortment of rides each year, but perennial favorites like the merry-go-round are sure

to appear. Fair director Jennifer Lohrenz said she’s put in a request for a traditional Ferris wheel, but there’s no guarantee it will appear on this year’s midway. Safety is a prime factor for the company, which completes full safety inspections before the carnival opens at noon daily. A second inspection is scheduled for 6 p.m., before the evening session. Lohrenz said local fairgoers have expressed their happiness at the clean midway that the carnival workers maintain.

Youth livestock classes heart of Park County Fair The youth of Park County and their livestock are at the heart of the fair. For many kids, the fair culminates in the Junior Livestock Sale on Saturday at 1 p.m. Kids who belong to 4-H and FFA show a wide assortment of animals during the fair, including steers, horses, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits and poultry. Monday, July 23 featured the 4-H dog and cat shows, miniature horses and youth horseback riding. On Tuesday, July 24, youth bring horses to the ring at 8 a.m. for showmanship and halter classes, followed by performance classes. All youth livestock arrives at the fairgrounds by 8 a.m. Wednesday. Horse events continue at 8 a.m. with performance and cattle events, followed by timed events. Market animal weigh-ins begin with hogs at 8:30 a.m., followed by lambs, goats, market beef and rabbits. 4-H swine showmanship begins at 5 p.m., followed by feeder hogs and market breeding swine. 4-H beef showmanship also begins at 5 p.m., with senior classes first, followed by intermediate, junior and beginner classes. On Thursday, poultry showmanship begins at 7:30 a.m., followed by rabbit showmanship and the youth and open meat goat show at 8 a.m.

At 9 a.m., beef come into the ring for the youth market beef show and the Park County Steer Futurity. FFA beef showmanship follows the market beef show. 4-H sheep showmanship takes the afternoon, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Youth breeding beef also show at 1:30 p.m. Swine showmanship fills the evening, with FFA members showing hogs beginning at 5 p.m., followed by the pee wee and market show. On Friday, July 27, FFA members start sheep showmanship at 7:30 a.m., followed by the youth market sheep show. Youth dairy goat showmanship begins at 8 a.m. and so does the youth dairy cattle show. Rabbits also show at 8 a.m. After lunch, little kids under 8 take to the arena for the pee wee sheep show, followed by any remaining breeding sheep classes. The small animal round robin for those who won showmanship classes with their rabbits, dogs, cats, miniature horses and poultry is at 3 p.m. The sheep lead contest (where handlers and sheep dress alike) is at 6 p.m. On Saturday, 4-H and FFA members compete in round robin showmanship at 9 a.m. Gearing up for the Junior Livestock Sale, the buyers’ lunch begins at 11 a.m. The sale follows at 1 p.m. in the sale barn on the north end of the fairgrounds.

In addition to regular maintenance, crews from the county buildings and grounds department, the fairgrounds and contractors have made a number of improvements over the last year. Tribune photo by CJ Baker

Fairgrounds upgraded for 2012 fair week Improvements to the Park County Fair will literally take center stage this week as the fair gets underway. Most notably, the open air pavilion — where free stage acts perform all afternoon and late into the night — now has a permanent stage structure that includes a dressing room and storage space. In another new twist for the free stage, a “dinner hour” has been penciled in each night where there will be no entertainment. Fair Director Jennifer Lohrenz said that’s intended for people who’d like a better opportunity to converse with friends. Though perhaps less obvious, there are many other improvements all around the fairgrounds that fairgoers may notice: • additional and upgraded RV pedestals on fairgrounds’ northeast end, and a new access road for RV parking

• the installation of cabling by TCT that will allow live video of the Junior Livestock Sale to be piped to TVs in the nearby beef, dairy and swine barns, giving participants and spectators more opportunities to stay in-the-loop • improved electrical service in the horse barns that should stop past overheating and short circuits • fresh paint in the bathrooms, on the entryways to the barns and on the ticket booths • the addition of a third horse arena on the grounds east end, and the addition of lighting to two of the three arenas • the removal of a dividing wall in the rabbit/poultry barn that will allow the space to be used more efficiently, plus new walls in the wool room • a greater emphasis on recycling, including a can crusher and bin at the beer gardens

PARK COUNTY FAIR TIMES

TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2012

Part-time Powell resident John Wasden turns a small block of wood into an egg and spinning top. It took less than 10 minutes for Wasden to complete both pieces. Wasden has been turning wood for more than 20 years. Using birch, ash, pine, aspen, cedar, fir, walnut, cottonwood and other woods, he creates everything from plates, bowls and cups to bottle stoppers, honey dippers and spinning tops. His work will be on display and entered into competition at this year’s Park County Fair. Wasden works on his projects between 16 to 18 hours a day. He arrives at his shop just after midnight and works until 6 a.m., when he stops to eat breakfast. He returns soon after and works until 10 a.m., takes a short break, and then resumes woodturning until early evening. Wasden’s wood shop houses six wood lathes, which hold and spin the wood while he shapes it with various tools. Wasden likes having multiple work stations so he can quickly and easily move between different projects.

Contestants at the Park County Fair demolition derby may be determined to smash their opponent’s car to smithereens, but an air of friendship prevails between drivers that have known each other for years. Tribune file photo

By giB maTHers Tribune Staff Writer

P

ark County Fair Demolition Derby fans may have noticed many drivers in the crash fest are related. Ron Chouinard and his family are no exception. Nor is Eric Parham, whose son, Colton, ran his first derby earlier this month. The fair demolition derby, sponsored by Powell Lions Club, starts at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Main Grandstand. “It’s just an adrenaline rush, really,” said Ron Chouinard, 44, of Powell who has been smashing and getting smashed in derbies for the last 18 or so years. “I’ve been around it most of my life,” Ron said. It began with his stepfather, Don Adams, who did derbies. Young Ron helped at the “Adams Family Garage” and started driving when he was 25 or 26 years old, he said. Ron cut his teeth at the Powell derby and, later, hit other

derbies around the Big Horn Basin. In recent years Ron has competed in Powell only. Ron is sitting this year out, he said. Don has retired. Ron has two sons, one daughter, one brother and nephews into derbies now, he said. His son, RJ Chouinard, won a heat and took two pins last year driving a pink Cadillac. Last year’s Powder Puff winner was his daughter, Kayce Chouinard, driving his Chrysler Imperial. RJ will compete at the fair this week in the same Chrysler, Ron said. The Chrysler is the same car Ron won the Grudge Match in last year. Travis Kovach was also a Grudge Match winner. In each of the four heats there are two winners. Likewise there are two Grudge winners. Pins (or flags) are captured in all heats and matches. On occasion, two drivers win pins in the same heat or match. Although a bit beat-up, the Imperial will enter the fray again this week, thanks to Don teaching his derby progeny how to make the old beaters last, Ron said.

PROUD SUPPORTERS of Park County Youth & the Junior Livestock Sale

His little brother, Jeremy Adams, takes leave from the U.S. Marine Corps to compete in the derby, Ron said. His nephews, Derrick and Dylan Hutzenbieler, 21 and 19, respectively, will be running cars in the fair derby this week, Ron said. Another nephew, Dawson Hutzenbieler, 15, entered the Lovell derby a couple weeks ago. And a niece’s husband, Brad Lauk, ran in Lovell last year and this year, Ron said. Now Ron’s son, Kalib, 12, who has been watching his father work on cars since he was a toddler, is taking interest. “He can’t wait until he gets old enough to derby,” Ron said. The family of derby successors will keep the sport alive, Ron said. Eric Parham, 36, of Powell, who will run the fair derby for his seventh year this week, has a son continuing the automobile-mashing custom. see derby, Page 18

Derby: ‘It’s kind of a tradition’ Continued from Page 17 Eric took second in the fair finals last year. He also snagged a pin and of course survived a heat to bash his way through the finals. Like father like son, Colton Parham, 15, hit the Lovell derby July 14. A lot of youngsters get their feet wet in Lovell, Eric said. Colton has a 1974 black Cadillac. A pink ribbon painted on the car said “Mom” in honor of his stepmother, Shanee Parham, who beat cancer. Pink flames decorated the hood and fenders, he said. Colton said he enjoys helping his father build the cars and watching derbies. Colton took a welding class in high school to better learn demolition car preparation, and Eric has been quizzing him about derby driving. This is the second year he helped Josh Lovelady beefup his car for the derby, Eric said. There’s little time to fret. “After the first hit you’re just going and having fun,” Chouinard said. He will use the car’s strengths such as a stout rear or front end to use for slam-

ming opponents, but that is about the extent of his tactics in the car-crunch-car world of demolition derbies. “If I see a good hit I’m going to take it,” Ron said. Bad blood is nil. “I know all the guys,” Ron said. “We’ve been derby-ing against each other for years.” Eric sees his opponents during fair week. After the derby, drivers congregate at the beer gardens, he said. “The derby has been a huge thing in Powell for years,” Ron said. “The fans are a huge, huge part of it too.” It’s a right noisy venue. Revving engines, screaming crowds and the sound of clashing metal like tanks slugging it out. Needless to say drivers are fully engaged in the arena dodging or smacking cars, but they know the loyal crowd is calling for them especially amid the cheers prior to each heat. “You can hear the people screaming for you,” Ron said. Ron’s advice is head-on: “Go out there, have fun, and hit some people hard.” “It’s kind of a tradition,” Eric said. “It’s fun.”

The Park County Fair Demolition Derby sponsored by the Powell Lions Club starts at 6 p.m. at the Main Grandstand

• Tickets are $20 for bleacher seats, $18 for box seats or $15 for grandstand seats. • The entry fee for drivers is $50. • First place is $1,500.

The comedy duo bills itself as the BlackStreetBoyz, claiming on its website to have been “brought up poor in a rough neighborhood in the ghettos of Beverly Hills, CA.” Later, they admit they are cousins originally from Denver, but “that’s another story.” They have performed on various televi-

sion shows, including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and several programs on Nickelodeon, including “Kenan and Kal” and “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper.” Also, they appeared “about a million times” on that network’s show “Roundhouse.” They have been featured in commercials for American Express, Pepsi, Bud Light and Sketchers and appear frequently on cruise ships. Alfred and Seymour is scheduled to appear on the free stage daily from Tuesday through Saturday.

hen Chris LeDoux died of cancer in 2005, members of his band, Western Underground, planned one last performance in his honor. “About three months after Chris died, they had a festival. They called and asked about doing a tribute, and ultimately, we decided to go ahead and do that,” band member and manager Mark Sissel said during a phone interview earlier this month. That led to another 10 or 11 performances with the intent “to kind of tip our hat to Chris and to his fans; he didn’t have a chance to do that. He had a really loyal group of fans,” Sissel said. By 2006, the band still was getting offers to do more shows. “The fans seemed to appreciate that we were carrying on that legacy,” he said. “That’s what it became, sort of carrying on his music.” Still active today, Western Underground will perform at the Park County Fair on Friday, July 27. Band members are drummers Ned LeDoux and KW Turnbow, Bobby Jensen on keyboards, Sissel on guitar and David See Western Underground, Page 26

Jenkins to Western Underground: ‘It’s all Chris LeDoux’ open for Western Underground Continued from Page 25

Lyle Evans on bass. Sissel said LeDoux’s show was a bigger production, with pyrotechnics and a bucking machine. While Western Underground concerts have a little less fanfare, the music remains the same, with a few additions. “We sort of moved forward,” he said. “We did our own record, ‘Unbridled,’ a few years later.” “Unbridled” includes a song Sissel wrote a few years before LeDoux’s death. “It’s kind of a Wyoming tip of the hat to Chris, expressing my feeling of running down the road with a country legend like him,” Sissel said. “He was an artist, a sculptor, and extraordinary person. “When people asked him, ‘What is it you want to be remembered for?’ his answer was, ‘A good father and a good husband. That’s what I want to be remembered for.’” Because LeDoux was from Kaycee, “Wyoming’s an important place for us,” Sis-

Charley Jenkins was raised on a farm in eastern Utah, where he learned to rope, ride and work hard, according to his online biography. He produced his first countryWestern album, “Greatest Hours,” with the help of his friend Jordan Allen. In 2001, Jenkins went to Nashville, Tenn., and soon he was working on Music Row for a song writing publishing company. While in Nashville, he released his second album, “Round Here.” He returned to Utah in 2004 to help with the farm and be with his family and his father, who was battling cancer. His song, “Hero at Home” on the “Round Here” album is a tribute to his father. “Coming home was an easy decision for me, and I will never regret it,” he said in the bio. Jenkins’ third album, “Hold On,” was released in 2009, and he has appeared on the TV series, “Nashville Star.” “Country is who and what I am,” Jenkins said in the bio. “It’s only natural for me to sing the songs that I love and relate to.”

sel said. “I don’t know if there’s a band that sings more about Wyoming. Chris had a lot of those songs, and we’ve added some of our own since then.” Another song on the “Unbridled” CD is “The Good ol’ Days to Come,” written by former lead singer Dustin Evans. Singer Lane Turner, a former Warner Bros recording artist, now fills the role of lead singer. “He fits in so well,” Sissel said. “He has the same values as Chris had. He’s a great, great person, and we’re really happy to have him.” Turner joined the band in fall 2010 when Western Underground was planning to perform in New York in “One Ride,” an all Chris LeDoux musical. “They took all Chris’ songs and created this whole story of a young man leaving home, heading down the rodeo trail. It told about how you seek to become a champion .. in rodeo or in anything in your life,” Sissel said.

“The singer for the band is really the narrator for the show. Lane had to walk in and learn all that material. Man, he just shined. He just stepped in and took that role.” With Turner at the microphone and playing guitar, Western Underground continues LeDoux’s legacy. “It remains a show to play his music. It makes us feel good; it makes his fans feel good,” Sissel said. “It’s all Chris LeDoux.” While some country Western artists sing “hurtin’, cheatin’, drinkin’ songs,” LeDoux chose not to sing them, Sissel said. “He said, ‘That’s just not how my life is, so I don’t sing about it. I don’t cheat on my wife, so I don’t need to sing about it.’ He was really singing about a lifestyle.” And that’s the legacy Western Underground strives to continue. “We’re not champion cowboys; we can’t do that. But we can still keep it positive. Mostly, it is keeping it positive, with a little tongue-in-cheek humor here and there. He had quite the sense of humor. “By the end of the show, everybody should be up; everybody should be a hootin’ and hollerin’ and having a good time.”

IF YOU GO Western Underground will perform at the grandstand at the Park County Fair on Friday, July 27. The concert starts at 6 p.m., with Charley Jenkins opening the show. Tickets cost $40 for the floor, $25 for the grandstand and $35 for box seats. Courtesy photo

Young ones have fun at Young Guns

r e — Young Guns Wild West Fun Park promy ises 1,600 square feet of fun for the little folks. s JC McDowell and his wife, Hilary, with s the assistance of other family members at times, bring their attraction to fairs in the l Rocky Mountain West during the summer In the winter, they live on a sailr months. boat on the Mexican Sea of Cortez.

r

PARK COUNTY FAIR TIMES

On his website, JC McDowell said he thinks the Young Guns Wild West Fun Park fills a niche. Traveling with his family to fairs with his former doughnut concession stand, “we noticed… that while all the fairs had a carnival as part of the attraction, there were always height restrictions.” With small kids excluded from some of the fun, “it made sense to build an attraction for kids 10 and younger with games specifically geared toward their height and age.” The Wild West theme draws on the popularity of rodeos and 4-H livestock events at county fairs, he said on his website. It’s been a career change for McDowell, who graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture and started a small handmade furniture

company before turning to a construction/remodeling company. The economic downturn hampered that business and the McDowells started looking for alternatives, he said, which led to their doughnut concession stand and then to Young Guns Wild West Fun Park. “It’s for all ages,” said Park County Fair director Jennifer Lohrenz. “You don’t have to be 2 to enjoy playing in the dirt.” Lohrenz said JC McDowell brought his doughnut concession to the Park County Fair a couple of years ago, so fairgoers may recognize him from that venture. But he and his family, which now includes small children, have switched gears. “They recognized a hole,” Lohrenz said, that “those families with children too small to get on the rides” could use some other fun diversions at the fair. The Park County Fair board members saw the need, too, Lohrenz said. “It was the first act the board booked at convention,” she said. “The board recognized the need for it and the desire for it.” The Young Guns Wild West Fun Park is part of the free entertainment on the grounds during the fair.

The Young Guns Wild West Fun Park is designed for kids up to about 10 years old. The attraction will operate at the fairgrounds throughout fair week. Courtesy photo

Beat the heat at this year’s fair

While walking on black asphalt in scorching July heat doesn’t sound too appealing, thousands of people gather at the fair each year, and some fair-goers may be susceptible to sunburns or heat-related illnesses. To avoid getting sick in the sun, here are some precautions and tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: • Make sure you drink plenty of water — that means water, not sugary soft drinks. Staying hydrated is very important, and drinking water is the best way. • Avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps. • Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 15, though SPF 30 is best, and wear a hat, lightweight clothing and longer sleeves. • Be especially sure to always put sun-

screen on children and keep them in the shade as much as possible. • Limit exposure to the sun. Don’t overdue the time you spend outside — take breaks throughout the day inside a cool place or in the shade. • Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle. According to the National Center for Environmental Health, warning signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomiting and fainting. If there is a sign of heat exhaustion symptoms and they continue to last or worsen, seek medical attention. Every year, the fair offers a first aid booth for people needing immediate medical attention.

‘Donate Life Wyoming’ booth promotes organ donation Park County fairgoers will have a chance to learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation at the Donate Life Wyoming booth under the grandstands. Folks can register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor. Booth visitors will have an opportunity to spin a prize wheel to walk away with a fun Donate Life giveaway. Recipients, donor family members and representatives from Donor Alliance, Wyoming Cares/Wyoming Shares

and the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank will be available to answer questions and share their stories of how donation and transplantation save lives. An advocate for organ donation, Patricia Thomas of Cody is helping organize the booth. Her daughter, Kathleen, died in 2008 at just 31. In her death, Kathleen gave life to others, helping 22 people so far. Kathleen was able to donate her heart valves, both corneas, bone and skin grafts.

Mud will fly Tuesday night at the Park County Fair while kids and adults compete for the fastest time in the 2012 pig wrestling competition. Tribune file photo by Kevin Kinzley

Pig wrestling WILD ADVENTURE IN A BARREL BY DANTE GEOFFREY Tribune Staff Writer

T

he term “pork barrel” is often used in a derogatory manner pertaining to politics and spending. But in regards to the pig wrestling event at this year’s Park County Fair, “pork barrel” conjures images of mud-covered competitors successfully corralling a slippery swine into a wooden barrel. Teams of four will have 60 seconds to catch a pig and wrestle it into an upright barrel in the middle of a mud-bottomed pen. Pigs must be put into the barrel butt first and without the aid of gloves or any other objects. The team to place the pig in the barrel in the least amount of time wins its division. There will be competitions within the five divisions. There are three youth divi-

sions, organized by age. There are divisions for ages 6-8, 9-12 and 13-15. The 6-8 division is the only division in which co-ed teams are allowed. The adult divisions are separated by gender. Anyone 16 or older is considered an adult. There will be no calcutta auction this year. In its place will be a 50/50 raffle that will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), a non-profit health agency that is dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, according to MDA’s website, www. mda.org. Half of the raffle money will be given to the person with the winning raffle ticket while the other half will go to MDA. The event will take place tonight (Tuesday, July 24) at 7 p.m in the main grandstands. All tickets are general admission and cost $5 at the gate.
