Lloyd crowned fair queen

It was a very surprised Tara Lloyd who was named Fair Queen 2000 last Thursday night before a packed house at the Donald Young School gym in Emo.

The 16-year-old—the daughter of David and Glenda Lloyd of Emo, swept the individual categories of the pageant—took first place in the fashion and entertainment categories, and sharing top honours in the banner and interview ones.

Draft horse show

This year’s draft horse show was as impressive as ever, but some might say it was even more so this year: for the first time in the fair’s history, yearlings were in the competition.

“I thought it’d be something different,” said Shane Brown, who showed his horses Chuck, 1 year, and Chester, 13 months.

Nuinsco completes airborne survey

Nuinsco Resources Ltd. chairman and CEO Douglas Hume was in the area last week to oversee airborne mineral surveys carried out by helicopter over Richardson township—the results of which won’t be known for about three weeks.

Residents in the Emo and Barwick area probably spotted the survey helicopter, flying with a large donut-like contraption on a dangling cable.
