Whatever Works
Whatever Works
As it always has been, the rules of the Crawford County Fair pig scramble require all participants drag a pig by the legs to a marked circle in the arena, but this young lady was also aware that style points don't count. She was one of few participants to drag a pig by one leg instead of two and drag it to the circle to claim the cash prize. Children of all ages and even some teenagers, including last year's Crawford County Fair Queen Carley Travis, took part in the night's festivities, which also included a rabbit scramble. Stay tuned to the Daily News for more fair coverage. (Blake Nash photo)

Fiscal saga lesson: We're in this together
I have a checkbook. It is not evil, nor is the money it calls out of the bank for me when I ask it to. My bank has some rules about its use that I sometimes find inconvenient, but I am not a child and understand them well enough to know why they are necessary. I can't write a check for more money than I have in the bank.
