[1"-- the Ryan Black family, The 4thof July is coming up and I hope everyone has a safe but fun time and gets a chance to spend some time with family and friends doing some- thing fun. On Saturday night Deweese will have some live entertainment, starting at 3:30 three great bands will start playing for the whole evening a nice way to kick off the 4th of July week- end. I Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey i i, I've finally joined the modern age, and have a computer online, so I'm going to be e-mailing my column from now on. That is, if everybody keeps their fingers crossed until I learn how to work this new,tangled machinery. On June 16, Ronn Simpson asked me to insert a note about his apprecia- tion of the action on Lonnie Knehans at the county courthouse. Ronn had gone there on business and noticed that the flag was tattered at the edge and was caught on the pole and whipping itself to pieces. He mentioned it to Lonnie, who "got right up from his chair," Ronn said, and "went out and replaced the tattered old flag with a brand new one." Ronn appreciated the prompt atten- tion to this matter, as he is a veteran and proper respect for our country's flag is important to him. The biggest news in town this past week was the horse show up at the Rocking R' Arena. Riders and their horses, from Franklin, Glenvil, Lawrence, Nelson, Harvard, Hastings, Deweese, Guide Rock and Mankato, ompeted in several events, including western pleasure, open walk-trot, rein- ing, horsemanship, pole bending, trail and various speed events. The"crow's nest," Bruce Ohmstede built for a judging stand looks very nice; makes Guide Rock's little arena 10ok just like some of the big rodeos. I have photos of some of the competi- tors, but couldn't figure out how to take them off my digital camera and put them into this new computer's e- mail program--maybe next'time. I have not managed to get in touch with Laura Ely, so I don't have any results of any of the events. I asked one competitor, as she was walking back from the arena, "How did you do?" She told me they didn't win anything. The horse was appar- ently rather unhappy about that, be- cause he shoved his head against me, like he wanted a shoulder to cry on because he didn't win. However, his rider told me that this was only the second time he'd been in competition, so she hadn't expected to win. There was a thoroughbred, named Giraffe, waiting to compete in the speed events. His rider, Michelle Blakeley of Hastings, told me Giraffe was a "res- cue" horse from a racetrack. She was keeping Giraffe out of the arena with the other horses, because like any trained race horse, he could no! tolerate another horse ahead of him. There were also several dogs there, just as spectators. One little border collie, named Megan, laid a six-inch stick at my feet and begged me to throw it for her. Since she was on a leash, we couldn't have a proper game of"chase the stick" but I did manage a few tosses for her until she grabbed the stick too hard and it broke. All told it was a fun day for all concerned. Both CPI and Ely Grain report"just the same old. same old." In other words,they're just spraying post-emer- gence corn, some soybeans, moving a bit of grain and waiting for wheat har- vest. Rod Ely expects that they will be starting this week for the earliest fields. On our way to Red Cloud the other day, I noticed a couple of fields look- mg pretty ripe, so it won't be long. Not much news in my column this week; I'm still on a learning curve with this new computer and didn't leave myself enough time to gather news before (attempting) to e-mail my col- umn to the newspapers. More next time, I hope. Highland By IvaLee Jacobitz Mr. and Mrs. Ron Porter attended the rehearsal supper at the Elks Friday for the wedding of Kayla Porter and Brady Grove.
