S.I.F. Night Life Friday, July 22nd “INTERNATIONAL ARTIST”

TERRY LEE GOFFEE THE “ULTIMATE” JOHNNY CASH TRIBUTE TICKETS: $6 10 AND UNDER FREE He looks like Johnny He sounds like Johnny Nobody does Cash Like Terry Lee Goffee In the spring of 1955 Johnny Cash walked into the legendary Sun Recording Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The music world was never the same. Not long afterward, I put my first Johnny Cash record on a turntable and my world was never the same. I have been a fan of Johnny Cash since I was 6. He and Elvis were my first two musical influences. I always felt Johnny’s music got better over the years. Cash’s songs addressed a lot of issues common to a lot of people, whether it was sensitive social issues or just some slice of life the average person could relate to. Having firsthand knowledge of others who were doing tributes and, wanting to honor my musical hero, I decided to start performing “Train of Love: A Tribute to Johnny Cash.” I wanted to make my show a little different and unique by portraying Johnny Cash in the first person, rather than just standing there singing the songs. Like an actor in a play I literally become my character, in this case Johnny Cash, from the moment I walk onstage until the end of the show. In June 2003, we took the “Train of Love” tribute to Nashville for two performances. Cash’s brother and sister attended the show and were very complimentary afterward. Since then we have performed countless shows in the U.S, Canada, Ireland, the UK and the U.S. Virgin Islands. “Train of Love” sprang from my appreciation and love, not only for the music of Johnny Cash, but for the man himself. A champion of the underdog, a voice for those who often have none, an “outlaw” before it became fashionable. If you come away from our show with a better understanding of who Johnny Cash is, I will have succeeded in my vision for this endeavor. Enjoy the Ride - Terry Lee Goffee

Abbie Wanders 2010 Southern Iowa Fair Queen Being crowned 2010 Southern Iowa Fair Queen was the highlight of my 4-H and FFA career. I have participated and showed at the SIF for over 9 years. It has been an honor and privilege to represent Mahaska County during the 2010 Southern Iowa Fair handing out ribbons, tropohies, and awards. The many new faces and friends I have met along the way, working with the SIF senior king and queen, participating in parades, the Iowa State Fair Queen contest, and working at the Beef Quarters at the Iowa State Fair have all been great opportunities that I have really enjoyed being a part of. I would like to thank the sponsors of the Southern Iowa Fair queen contest, they have helped to make this incredible experience possible. My friends and family who encouraged me, helped me, or cheered for me on along the way–you all are a blerssing to me. As my reign as the 1010 Southern Iowa Fair Queen comes to an end, I want to wish future queen and king candidates the best of luck. It is a truly rewarding and memorable experience that I will cherish always. Many thanks to the southern Iowa Fair and the fair board for making the Southern Iowa Fair the best experience a county fair can be.

2010 SENIOR KING & QUEEN

Max and Ann Ohms We were quite surprised to be selected as the 2010 Southern Iowa Fair King and Queen and felt very honored to have the title. The Fair really has a special meaning to Ann as that is where her parents had their first date. We have been going to the fair since 1970 when we moved to this area. We were both 4-H leaders; Ann has served on the 4-H youth committee and done some open class judging. Also our children: Roger, Beth and Caryn all exhibited at the fair, each for their nine years of 4-H. This has been followed by our grandchildren: Katie, Sarah, Benjamin, Paul and David - all exhibiting for their nine years as 4-H members. The 4-H program has been quite beneficial to our family for the many things they have learned and helped them to mature into responsible young adults. During the fair we had a fun time going each day to many of the activities on the grounds as well as in the grandstand. Everyone gave us special treatment and we were most appreciative of all the kindness extended to us. Many thanks to all who made our week of royalty such a pleasant experience and look forward to seeing you at the 2011 Southern Iowa Fair.

“Good Luck to all 4-H Exhibitors�

ANTIQUE TRACTORS & ENGINE DISPLAY SOUTH OF MAIN GATE For information contact Jerry Bruxvoort, Larry Bogaard, 626-3710, or Mike Hornick, 641-777-4163

2011 Featured Tractor 445 Minneapolis-Moline The event has grown to be the best County Fair show of antique equipment in the State of Iowa. The Southern Iowa Fair Board has been very supportive of the effort of many volunteers. The committee in charge is proud of the show and greatly appreciates all of the help and support. Every year we strive to obtain more tractors and gas engines. We will also have several Cub Cadet Lawn mowers on display. The owner of each piece of displayed equipment receives a free button and magnetic plaque for coming. We have not charged to display equipment, as we feel it is our privilege to have someone bring equipment to the show. The volunteers help make the show possible by serving ice cream. In addition, they serve over 400 ears of good Iowa sweet corn and bologna on Tuesday evening. Thursday evening, it is stew and cornbread. Our guests greatly enjoy 35 gallons of the best beef stew made over an open fire in a big black pot. The large hospitality tent seems to be a great gathering place during the Fair, with people drinking coffee and swapping tall stories. It is a nice place to just sit and relax. The committee has built an unloading dock at the fairgrounds to make it easier to unload and load equipment. They have also purchased tables and equipment to serve and eat at, a trailer to store equipment in, plus many other items to improve the display each year. You won’t want to miss this unique display of tractors, gas engines, and miniature displays of yesteryear. The featured tractor this year is the International. All tractors are welcome. The show is supported by freewill donations for the ice cream, food and drink. Your generous donations are appreciated to help provide a bigger and better display each year.

4-H EXHIBIT BUILDING REGULATIONS General Exhibit Rules

FAMILY & CONSUMER SCIENCE Superintendents.........Ruth Branderhorst, Marlene Maxwell & Deb Overbergen Judging.................................................Monday, July 18th, 8:30 a.m. — 2:00 p.m. GOAL - CENTERED LEARNING PHILOSOPHY a. The current exhibit classes help to strengthen the goal-centered learning philosophy of the 4-H program. Within many educational programs, the skill of goal setting is something we strive to teach and practice. Within an exhibit experience, members need to be an active participant in determining the criteria on which their exhibit will be evaluated. Knowing a 4-H ers goal, evaluators can structure a conference or focus on printed information that will provide positive feedback as well as identify ways in which the exhibit could be improved. The 4-H ers goals will serve as the BEGINNING point for judges in the evaluation process. ELIGIBILITY 1. Member must be re-enrolled in 4-H by January 3rd of the current year. New members must be enrolled by May 16 of current year (with club leader approval) to exhibit at the Fair, per the decision of the Mahaska County 4-H Youth Committee. 2. Exhibitors must have participated in the project or program from which the exhibit is an outgrowth. The exhibit must have been completed during the current 4-H year. 3. If a 4-H er has a set goal(s) that can be accomplished by both a classroom assignment and an outgrowth of a 4-H project goal, that s okay. The intent is that a predetermined 4-H goal has been set. Example: Class assignment was to design a banner. 4-H goal: to make the banner for use in Exhibitor s room. The 4-H er must realize that the evaluation criteria and exhibit guidelines


148 for each opportunity will be different and should prepare the required support information accordingly. 4. Exhibitors at the Southern Iowa Fair must have completed grades 4-12 (or that equivalent). Exhibits can be prepared by an individual 4-H’er, team of 4-H’ers or may be the result of a group effort. All 4-H’ers, individual or group, must meet these requirements (completed 5th grade through 12th grade (or that equivalent) or have passed their 10th birthday on September 15 of the previous year) to be eligible for Iowa State Fair consideration. Ideally, it is important that 4th graders have one year of County experience and the opportunity to process that with an adult before entering a State competitive arena. 5. 4-H members are expected to wear a clean shirt with a 4-H emblem on it at the time of participation/judging at the Southern Iowa Fair. GENERAL EXHIBIT RULES 1. Exhibit classes are broad categories. To plan exhibits, 4-H ers are encouraged to use project guides and manuals and program materials to determine goals and learning experiences. Some project manuals include specific exhibit suggestions and procedures. An exhibit can represent an idea, a part, or all learning involved in the respective project or program. 2. Exhibits that do not comply with the class description, size guidelines, copyright, safety, and approved methods will be disqualified and not put on public display. The exhibitor will receive written evaluation comments and an explanation on why the exhibit was disqualified. 3. Eligible exhibits are an outgrowth of the 4-H er s participation in the selected project or program. Exhibits can be done by an individual or group. Exhibits might be, but are not limited to, an actual product, poster, display box, report, notebook, model, videotape, audiocassette, etc. 4. The 4-H er s goal and applicable exhibit standards will form the basis of the evaluation process. Evaluation criteria will include demonstrated learning, workmanship and techniques, and general appearance and design. Exhibitors will receive (a) purple, blue, red and/or white Southern Iowa Fair exhibitor s ribbon(s). 5. A written explanation, an audiocassette, or videotape is to be included as part of each exhibit. The exhibitor should respond briefly to the following questions about the exhibit. a. What was your exhibit goal(s)? b. How did you go about working toward your goal(s)? c. What were the most important things you learned as you worked toward your goal(s)? Check for additional requirements in exhibit classes for food and nutrition, photography, visual art, and some home improvement. You may also pick up an Exhibit Form from the Extension office to help with the goal cards. Goal sheets can be found online at www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/projects. 6. Age for exhibiting at the Iowa State Fair: 4-H er who have completed 5th grade through 12th grade (or that equivalent.) 7. There is no limit on the number of exhibits per class as long as the exhibits are in completion of different project goals. (Exception - see Photography) 8. Exhibitors must have participated in the project or program from which the exhibit is an outgrowth. a) The exhibit is to be an outgrowth of work done to accomplish a goal(s) determined by the member or group during the current 4-H year.


149 9. No entry fee is required. 10. Each item in an exhibit must be securely labeled, including the name of the county, class number, and exhibitor s name. Labels should be placed on the back of posters, notebooks, and/or cards, on the bottom of jars, and in an inconspicuous place on other items. A completed Southern Iowa Fair entry tag should be securely fastened to the main item in each exhibit on or near the upper right corner or in an easily seen location. Be sure to include the exhibitor s grade and years of participation in the project/program. Entry tags will be available at the Mahaska County Extension Office and from club leaders. 11. Due to security, 4-H ers are discouraged from sending items that have special meaning and historical value as the exhibit or part of an exhibit. The Southern Iowa Fair and Iowa State University Extension will use diligence to insure the safety of articles entered for exhibition after their arrival and placement. However, they will not be responsible for damage or loss by fire, theft, water, etc. 12. When limited by exhibit space and size and nature of the exhibit, the departments Superintendents reserve the right to rotate exhibits for display. Exhibit displays should be in proportion to the main item or idea being displayed. If the exhibitor chooses a display to illustrate what was learned, the following maximum size guidelines apply: Posters may not exceed 24 x36 in size. Chart boards, graph boards, project presentation boards, model displays, etc., may not exceed 48 x48 in size. Maximum size is determined by measuring the flat (unfolded) dimensions. Display boxes may not exceed 28 x22 in height or width and 12 in depth. a. EXCEPTION: see rule #2 in Communications for Poster Art. b. EXCEPTION: see rule #9 for Food and Nutrition Exhibits. 13. Endangered and threatened plants and animals (includes insects) should NOT be used in any exhibit. Wildflowers taken from parks should NOT be used. It is illegal to possess songbird feathers or nests. Game animals legally taken , such as pheasant, goose, duck, or quail are acceptable. Purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) is a plant that should not be planted in gardens. It has the potential of becoming noxious in Iowa. Other dried established noxious weeds are acceptable to use in exhibits. 14. Duplication of copyright material or design should not be used in a 4-H exhibit that is presented as original work by the exhibitor. A copyright design cannot be displayed in a public setting (fair) without permission being granted from the owner of the copyright. When the owner of the copyright has granted permission, the exhibit will be displayed and labeled appropriately. Those without permission cannot be displayed. 15. All exhibits, activities and programs must represent appropriate safety procedures in the development of the exhibit and during the evaluation process. This includes static exhibits and activities revolving around the communications program. 16. Any exhibits that use alcoholic beverages, bottles, cans, labels, etc. will not be acceptable for exhibiting. A 4-H member is not of legal age to purchase such items, so the items may not be used in, for or as 4-H exhibits at the fair. 17.

WHY THE FAIR CLASSES CHANGED **2011** The fair classes have changed to line up with the new Hot Sheets that were created to assist 4-H members with their projects throughout the year. These classes have been created to simplify the exhibiting process. Even though some classes have been eliminated, youth may still exhibit them where they fit the best. Please make sure to read the class descriptions before selecting a class for an exhibit. For more information about exhibiting at the fair and what the judges are looking for, please visit www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/projects, then click on the project you are interested in. These pages contain the Hot Sheets, Tip Sheets and other very helpful information and resources that will benefit exhibitors. The Tip Sheets explain what the judge will be looking for and will prepare the exhibitor for the fair.
