Page 3 Adams County Commissioners Continued from front page Especially if the number of patrolmen is reduced, fewer cars will be needed to patrol the County. The Sheriff has been aggressively pursuing the State of Idaho to place inmates at his facility. The 2013 Budget is based on an average census of fourteen inmates. That number is much less than the current census of over 20 inmates per day, and if that rate holds up, the expected revenue from the State should easily exceed the $205,000 budgeted for 2013, an amount unchanged from the 2012 Budget. The Commissioners held the line on Department expenses with the hope that any additional revenue over that amount can be used to build up a cash reserve. The Sheriff Department will end Budget Year 2012 with zero cash reserves, a fact the Commissioners feel puts them at a disadvantage during the first quarter of the Budget year. Commissioner Mike Paradis is working with Sheriff Green to fine-tune the expenses to match the expected revenue. That process might result in some further expense cuts before the 2013 Budget can be presented fo the public later this month. Rodeo A Council Tradition Continued from front page -- stiff when wet, limp when cold. Competitive ropers using manila kept their ropes in burlap rope sacks that they could shelter from the weather, and maybe add moisture when necessary. The appearance of nylon ropes made a change in tactics necessary for ropers in certain situations, as they were almost unbreakable. For ranch work, dallying (wrapping the rope around the saddle horn) became more popular (and safer) than tying it hard to the horn. It seems like sparkly spandex pants were a must for rodeo royalty for hats that men wore year around. Panama hats and other styles were around long before straw cowboy hats. A few fads have come and gone for boots and shirts over the years. Ropes pretty much used to come in only one color. There were no nylon ropes in 1947 -- just manila, hemp or rawhide. Most North American cowboys used manila ropes. Mexican vaqueros seem to have clung to the rawhide reata more than U.S. cowboys. Manila was stronger than hemp or rawhide, but changed rapidly with the weather 51.000 CASH PRIZE RAFFLE GET YOUR RANCHER'S RESCUE RAFFLE TICKET NOW $1/TICKET or 25 FOR $20 Adams County Rodeo Queen Kyanne Hemenway speeding full tilt around the arena Saturday night. a while, around the 1970s. But the animals and the basics of what the competitors do, or try to do, on or with them, is pretty much the same. A recent change has been protective vests, helmets and face guards, especially for bull riders. And even though they may look less traditional, who can object to saving someone from a serious injury? For spectators, it's easy to underestimate the power and agility of the bucking stock. "l-he horses probably weigh at least 1,000 pounds, and a few of the bulls tip the scales at close to a ton. Being mounted on one of these animals is a humbling experience, and being run over by one is ... well, to be avoided. I hope you enjoy the pictures from the rodeo. Many of them were taken by Helen Glidden, from whom we will be getting more photos from time to time. I took the other photos. Neither one of us was experienced enough to know how to keep track of all the contestants' names and shoot multiple fast- action shots at the same time.
