Sports takes a different turn in August of each year. The summer baseball-softball routine is suddenly shattered by ropes flying through the air and calves trying desperately to get away. This calf roper was bearing down hard on his calf as part of the Barnes Rodeo at the Lyon County Fair last week. The rodeo is an annual event at the county fair. The rodeo runs two days during the fair ad is a big attraction for fair goers and the general rodeo population. Staff Photo by Byron Higgin.
