The following is to correct errors printed previously in the Russell News:
Mike Beaty entered the 17th World Percheron Congress (around 800 Percheron's were entered) in Des Moines recently.
He won 1st Place for the Farm Vehicle division with Old Betsy, Chariton's vintage fire engine. Riding on Old Betsy were Chariton firemen Jim Larrington and Cody Smith and driving is Mike Beaty.
In other races: Feed team race (entered 4 times and placed each time), Walking plow-9th, Barnyard pull-6th, Sulky plow-6th, Log skid-9th, Gamblers choice (obstacle course)-6th. Job well done, Mike. Our sincere apologies for the errors.
