(Editor's note: There has been no attempt to offer a fair and balanced account of these proceedings :-)
Those politicians put up a good... well, they put up a fight, anyway. The score was Advocates 369, Public Servants, 35.
The newspaper took on a menagerie of local politicians in the Boyle County Fair version of Family Feud.
We won the game, but we didn't get $20,000. Maybe in next year's budget, Judge Wilder?
We were hosted and kissed by WHIR's Rick Schoebel. A clever and worthy host if there ever was one.
The fair did a fine job of setting the stage. There were name tags, tables and bells. I'd say it was as close to Hollywood as any county fair ever got.
Debbie Wagner, our publisher's right-hand gal, led our fearless team into battle with those politicos. Sports Editor Larry Vaught carried us. He knew all the answers to the, "Name a famous figure in the Old West" question.
