Rain Keeps Attendance Light on Fair’s First Night


There was room to spare at the Wyoming County Fair after a round of afternoon showers, but the sun will come out tomorrow. The rain pulled away in time for a number of activities to take place, including the crowning of the new Wyoming County Fair Queen Paige Zone (second from right), accompanied here by (from left) first alternate Emma Loch, third alternate Riley Campbell, and 2018 fair queen and state alternate queen Madison Sickler.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
