The ceremony is Sat- urday at 4 p.m. The current Jewell County 4-H King and Queen, Shane Britt and Kendra EUedge, were named during the 2002 Jewell County Fair. Britt, a newcomer to 4-H, has been a member of the Mankato Eager Bea- vers for three years. He is the son of Randy and Becky Dean, rural Man- kato. He is attending Cloud Commu- nity College studying ag education. This will his last year exhibiting as a 4- H member at the fair. He is presently employed at Jewell County Feeders. Elledge, a third generation Jewell County 4-H member, was a member of the Webber Wide Awake Club, join- ing when she was 7. She is the @ugh- ter of Steve and Rhonda Elledge, Webber. She is attending Southeast Community College, studying nurs- ing. Elledge is presently employed at the Brodstone Memorial Hospital. She is no longer a 4-H member as she turned 18 after the first of January. Britt and Elledge were chosen last year from a field of seven candidates. They applied for the honors, were in- terviewed by a state 4-H office repre- sentative and their 4-H record books were viewed. As part of their duties as 4-H King andQueen, they presented ribbons and trophies at the fair and rode in the local parades throughout the year. In regard to being chosen king, Britt said, "I was honored, as I have only belonged to 4rH for three years and many had been members so much longer." "I was surprised," Elledge said. Elledge's mother and grandmother were both long time 4-H members of the Webber club. Her brother Nick, was also a member. "So joining 4-H was a natural thing to do," she said. Britt said he joined 4-H at the urg- ing of long time 4-H volunteer, Doug Ford. "He got me involved in showing beef and I am glad that he did." Elledge's favorite projects were fashion review, market steers and crafts. "I always got new clothes for the fash- ion review. I enjoyed working with Mom for the fashion review and en- joyed working with my dad with the marketing steer.'Ct~andmother was al- ways my craft lead&,/' Britt's favorite project was market steers. "That is always fun and chal- lenging." Britt enumerated his favorite things about being a 4-H member, '`The fun council meetings, making friends, the trips--everything about it." Elledge's list, "The stock tank and the friends that you make and keep for a life time." Elledge said Deanna Sweat and Gary Tordrup, county extension agents, always encouraged her and other jun- ior leaders to become better leaders and better role models to the younger 4-H members. Britt received the most awards throughout his 4-H years for beef daily gain and Elledge received the most awards in fashion review and over all market steer in 2001. Britt and Elledge often competed against each other in the market steer class and laugh as the]frecall some of those competitions. Both Britt and Elledge would en- courage youth to join 4-H. "It teaches you leadership," states Elledge. "I'm more able to converse with people be- cause of 4-H. It makes you more out- going," Britt said. Britt's hobbies and interests are solo singing and his job, Elledge enjoys han~in~ out with her friends. Elledge would like to see more people become involved with the fair and in- volvement in 4-H. Britt see more need to see what its all something time.

BUS~IP aS a Bee in 2003 see in animals. Recently, I wztnessed jealously in my miniature donkey, Joe. Sunday, July 13: I had driven Joe around the half section where we live and noticed the harness had rubbed a sore spot behind his left front leg. I applied salve to the sore every morning and evening and the sore was pretty well healed. I was in the vicinity of Joe's barn one afternoon and noticed he was just outside the corral. I decided to put some extra salve on his sore. I went into the corral and called to Joe. He was only 20 or 30 feet outside the corral and I could see his ears above the brome grass. I called to Joe but he would not come in. This is typical as he often plays "hard to get." Then Fibber, the old farm dog, came wandering into the corral. I leaned down and petted Fibber and said, "Fib- her is a good boy." That's all it took. Joe galloped to the corral, ran up to where I was bent over petting Fibber, reared up, knocked my cap off with his head and came down with his front hooves in an effort to stomp Fibber. When Joe came down, Fibber was not there anymore. He was trying to wiggle under the wooden, walk-in gate. He often wiggles under the gate but it isn't easy and usually takes some time. What Fibber did not have was time. Joe caught Fibber as he was about half- way under the gate and wallowed Fib- her with his head. I hollored at Joe and slapped him on the rump. This halted his brutal activity long enough for Fib- her to escape. I was amazed. Joe, the donkey, was jealous of my petting Fibber. For healthier house plants, sprinkle used tea leaves on the soil.
