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.

Clay Co. Fair a place to call home

By Ashley D. Swanson

Every year, without fail, as soon as I step onto the dirt at the Clay County Fairgrounds, I’m engulfed in the feeling of home.

No matter what else may being going on with life, all of it drains away and my mind is refocused on the events, the shows, and the people of the Clay County Fair.

The time is now for your thoughts

By Tory Duncan

Traditionally I kind of wrap up the Clay County Fair while it is fresh in my mind, but this year, my county fair thoughts are going to have to stay fresh in my mind for another week, which I will share in next week’s paper when we publish our annual special salute to the hard working kids, parents, grandparents and all the amazing volunteers that make what is one of my favorite events of the year in the county.

This year, it is my position this week to ask YOU all for your feedback.

The ultimate road trip...in my book

By Tory Duncan

Traditionally this is the week that I lend my words to the Clay County Fair, and even though my thoughts aren’t directed that way, before I dig in to the Bull this week, be sure to support the kids and families that work their tails off to reach the point of the annual event.

It is, and always has been, one of my favorite events of the year!

This past week was to be my “little getaway” from the pace of a usual work week, but because of a few things here and there, it just didn’t work out to get away.

Push forward despite obstacles

By Ashley D. Swanson

When I was younger, and even into college, I was an avid writer. Now, I know how that must sound. I’m an avid writer now. But these things I was writing were stories, ones that came from my mind and usually spiraled down in a chaotic explosion…meaning I never finished these stories.

Being an avid writer now means finishing the stories, and having them come from real people with real stories in real situations.

Let me tell you a short story now, one that wasn’t made up, but is instead of how far a dream can go if you work hard enough to achieve it.
