eaglebeaky - \'Interview\' pulled after threat; U.S. says North Korea behind Sony hack - Quincy, IL News - Quincy
Well said, whiner1!!! Somebody at Sony Pictures Entertainment was desperately trying to be edgy and topical when they approved the production of The Interview (in spite of the fact that the creators of South Park already poked fun at North Korea a decade ago).

A public figure that did a good job mixing things up. I did not agree with him many times, but glad he was there to balance the board(he really does love the sound of his own voice). It is important to know when to exit the stage, I think he is doing that at the right time.

5th annual Ethan's Rodeo is this weekend

4 months, 1 week ago from Ethan's Rodeo committee

In memory of the late Ethan Weiman

David and Alicia Weiman are proud to announce that the 5th Annual Ethan's Rodeo will be held in the main arena at the Adams County Fairgrounds in Mendon, IL on August 15-16, 2014.  Ethan's Rodeo is named in memory of Ethan Weiman, a young cowboy who fought neuroblastoma - a childhood cancer responsible for 15% of all childhood cancer deaths - from 2007-2009.  Ethan's family and friends continue the fight by presenting this event to fund ongoing research of this terrible disease. 

Ethan's Rodeo features award winning contestants and livestock, professional rodeo clown Josh “Porkchop” Garrick, and pyrotechnics shows with each performance.  As part of the Outlaw Rodeo 2014 “Mission Impossible” tour, fans will enjoy bull riding, barrel racing, bareback and saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, and roping events.   Ethan's Rodeo is sanctioned by the United Rodeo Association and the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association.

Other highlights will include a stick horse parade before the rodeo each night (kids 10 and under) and a sheep chase during the rodeo (kids 6 and under).  The band Blacktop South will perform after the rodeo each night.

Ethan's Rodeo begins at 7:30pm each night.  On Friday, gates and concessions open at 5:30pm.  On Saturday, the gates and concessions open at 3:00pm for a full complement of family activities including a petting zoo, meet and greet with Porkchop, Broken Spoke Mounted Posse Mounted Shooting Contest, pony rides, bounce house, and much more.

Concession vendors include The Butcher Block, Prairie Farms, Pepsi, Bud Light, Gengenbacher’s Shaved Ice, Spirit Knob Winery, and Honey Creek Kettle Corn.

Tickets are available online at www.ethansrodeo.com, or at the Butcher Block in Quincy, the Barry Travel Plaza, and FS in Camp Point.
