Hometown Heroes honored at the Koochiching County Fair

Barely able to peek above the tables' edge, Kaily Liss stares at the 'veggie critters' created by youngsters at last weekend's Koochiching County Fair in Northome. Nearby, her grandmother Ione Uran Olson watched as Kaily tried to figure out what those "critters" were. More Fair pictures on our back page; Sinkhole Scramble results on page 10.1 / 2
"Flag troopers" got together to display flags from all over the country again this year in the Koochiching County Fair parade. The troop includes riders from all over the surrounding area. This is second year for the "Parade of State Flags" which is the brainchild of Betty Olson of Mizpah. Olson is also among the riders participating. Last year's parade featured flags from all 50 states. This year, however, only 12 states were represented.2 / 2
