MOUNDRIDGE – Cheyenne Johnson will be heading back to the National Little Britches Rodeo Association (NLBRA) Finals this summer.

Johnson, age 10 and a fifth-grader at Moundridge Middle School, has qualified for the national event in both barrel racing and goat tying. The finals will take place July 9-15, 2018, in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

She is the daughter of Liz and Jay Johnson, of Moundridge.

To qualify for NLBRA Finals, competitors must finish in the top seven at five rodeos.

Liz said her daughter was usually finishing between third and fifth.

Cheyenne had qualified for nationals in 2016, her final year in the Little Wrangler Division. However, she did not make it to the finals in 2017, her first season in the Junior Division for 10- to 13-year-old youth.

“When I didn’t get in 2017,  I was bummed, but I didn’t want to give up,” Cheyenne said. “I knew I could l reach it. I didn’t want to quit it.”

INMAN – Volunteers with the Inman Chamber of Commerce discussed Live Nativity preparations during the Chamber meeting Friday, Dec. 1, at the Harvest Café.

Live Nativity will begin at 6-8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 16, at Lambert Park, in Inman.

Anyone can drive through the park and view the four scenes that tell the story of Jesus’ birth. There will be signs at the park letting drivers know the radio station they can tune in to in order to hear the Biblical story.

Barb Tuxhorn was still searching for volunteers to be characters in the story. She noted they were all non-speaking roles and people filled 30-minute shifts.

“We encourage people to dress warmly,” Tuxhorn said. “The costumes have a lot of room and people can dress in layers.

“It’s a memory makers for families,” she added.
