Bringing back rodeo heritage, Interior Frontier Days Rodeo

Grand entrance ... Ronnie Gartner, carrying the United States flag, was flown in to the rodeo arena. He then mounted a horse brought in by other mounted flag bearers. The armed services were honored before the 2011 Interior Frontier Days Rodeo.

Some of my most treasured childhood memories of the Fourth of July are of attending the rodeo in Interior.

This rodeo, which began in the 1920s, grew to be the second largest rodeo in the world. By the time I was born, the rodeo wasn't as grand as it was at its peak, however, it was still one of the most respected, well-run rodeos of the 60s and early 70s.

I wasn't aware of any of that. All I knew was it was a big day for my family.


German club returns from Europe

The Philip High School students who participated in this year's annual trip to Europe were Gavin Snook, Allison Stahl, Carl Poss and Brad Pfeifle.

They and their chaperones visited places such as the Rhine River, the Swiss Alps, the Berlin Wall, a salt mine and Dachau Concentration Camp. They also toured Neuschwanstein Castle, the palace that inspired Walt Disney to create his own Fantasyland Castle. They also visited King Ludwig's second castle, Linderhof.
