Six years ago if anyone would have told Brooke Wallace, Solomon, that she would be Miss Rodeo USA one day, “I probably wouldn’t have believed them,” said Wallace. “After becoming a rodeo queen for the first time, I then decided this was a true passion I had and I decided to continue on to ultimately one day be Miss Rodeo USA!” Setting goals and working toward them one step at a time has been critical in how Wallace has accomplished such a huge goal while representing her home state of Kansas. This year she has given a special gift to one special person who has taken the time to reach out to tell her their goals. This month she chose Carissa Lynn as the recipient of “My Dream Bigger award”. Carissa has goals of becoming a farrier in the near future and big plans on how to achieve her goals. Brooke is the daughter of Beloit native, Mark Wallace and the granddaughter of Jane Wallace and the late Don Wallace of Beloit.
The Buck Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happens on July 4-5, 2020. The buck moon is the first full moon of summer 2020. It is named, according to the Farmers’ Almanac, for the new antlers seen on young male deer at this time of year. The July full moon is also known as the thunder moon, hay moon or wort moon. Eclipses are harbingers of change — they usher in evolution. At a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Lunar eclipses as culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us.

Option D was to do nothing.
