Many turnout for Deweese Demo Derby despite heat

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

As the temperatures outside grew hot, so did the dirt track set up for the 41st Deweese Demo Derby Sunday, Aug. 12.

The drivers had a large crowd as they took their positions on the make-shift track, engines running and tires ready to fling dirt.

With the countdown, the sounds of engines flaring up broke loose, with cars slamming into each other, causing dents, popping tires and spilling antifreeze.

In the first heat of the 90s and New Old School, the usual scenery explained above showed as it came down to the top two drivers—Heidi Ploen, of Lemars, IA, and granddaughter of Keith Hansen, and Deweese-resident Jared Brockman.

Ranch Rodeo gives a taste of cowboy life

Clay County Fair brings in new event, large crowd during Thursday night’s slate of events

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

There’s a singular, collective beat before a rodeo begins.

A beat of four hearts; of a horse’s hoof against the ground; a click of the gate as the steer is released into the arena; and before the judge pulls down the red flag, signaling the go.

And then the beat is gone, replaced by the thundering sounds of four horses racing toward the loose steer, a cloud of thin dust being illuminated by the evening sun following behind.
