One for the history books


The 85th annual Ketchum Kalf Rodeo is now in the history books. Good crowds for both days enjoyed a lot of fun and excitement. Three much-loved cowboys—Fred Steinbach, Mark Wiltz, and Angel Murillo—were honored with empty saddle ceremonies both days. These cowboys are greatly missed by all who knew them, and the rodeo association was privileged to be able to honor them in this traditional way.

Congratulations to Kaedence Loomis of Toppenish for winning the Junior Barrels and taking home the Shawna Roberson Memorial buckle. Kaedence, the great-granddaughter of Bubs and Marlene Murray, flew around those barrels in great time and really showed off all the hard work she has put in preparing for this competition.

Marlene Dewey, one of the hardest working members of the rodeo association, was honored with the Hank Ladiges memorial buckle for her dedication and contributions to the rodeo.

“Glenwood kid” Hazel Parsons was named as this year’s parade Grand Marshal but was unable to attend due to a sudden illness that necessitated her hospitalization. Her son Eddie, grandson Jason, and little great-grandchildren rode in Dan Betters’ horse-drawn carriage to represent Hazel as she was honored during the parade. We all wish Hazel a speedy recovery and are sure she’ll be back for the rodeo and parade next year.

The Mt. Adams Community 4-H club worked hard at their pop stand, and the warm weather brought them many customers. They also worked hard Monday afternoon, picking up trash on the rodeo grounds and in the stands. Thank you, kids, for your community service.

The 4-H club had a special guest at their May 19 meeting, as reported by Jade McLean. They wish to thank Brad Gimlim and the Glenwood volunteer fire department for the exciting fire extinguisher demonstration. Before all the fun with fire, the meeting covered designing a new club banner for the club pop stand, planning for their rodeo parade float, and choosing a community project. The group chose repainting the Glenwood signs as their project for this year. Those nice signs at the entrances to our community have become quite faded and this project will be appreciated by all who live here.

A quick review of project activities revealed that the pig group, led by LeeAnn Burgin, had a pre-show on May 6, and all the pigs were tagged. Kay Carr and her cooking group made and served no-bake cookies for the meeting, which were delicious. Terry Arnold, one of the sewing leaders, is helping members get ready for the style review, which will be held in August. Terry reported that those working on sewing projects learn something new at each session. Finally, those in the steer group, led by Mike Woodward, recently had a weigh-in for their steers and have been work with those steers frequently.

Jade concluded her report by saying the fire extinguisher demonstration was definitely the highlight of the meeting and they were all excited to learn something new. Thank you, Jade, for this great report.
