I was very disappointed to see that the coverage on this year’s fair was so minimal in this week’s paper. County fair is a big annual event for this county. It’s a way of not only showing off individual achievements but also what our county has to offer.
Also, the photographs that were in the paper for the livestock auctions only represented the 4-H members. Why were there no photos of the FFA kids from Ponderosa High? They worked just as hard on their animals as the 4-H kids and should have also been acknowledged.
If space was an issue, maybe there could have been less photos of the mutton busters. There were way too many of those. Hopefully, next year we will see better representation of all the activities and children that are part of the fair and this community.
