Sunny and patriotic day for Fourth of July Parade in Bagley


This colorful patriot was riding in comfort and style as she enjoyed waving to the crowd during the Fourth of July Celebration Parade Saturday in Bagley. (Photo by Ted Pennekamp)

This cute pooch is adorned in a red, white and blue lei on a beach-themed float Saturday during the Bagley Fourth of July Celebration Parade.

A nice line-up of antique tractors was a crowd favorite along the parade route.

Rubby Ducky, you’re the one—on this bubbly and squeaky clean float.

Bagley may not have many swimmin’ pools or movie stars, but the Bagley Hillbillies are just as down home country as their more famous Beverly Hills brethren. Y’all come back now, hear.

Tiny houses are becoming all the rage, and this neat little unit looks quite homey and inviting.

RABAS saves Texan dogs on the verge of euthanization

By Rachel Mergen

 

As dogs have been filed into Houston shelters, approximately 60 to 80 being surrendered each day, euthanization lists have grown at an alarming rate due to lack of space for the many sweet abandoned dogs. Prairie du Chien’s Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter (RABAS), partnering with Lola’s Lucky Day based in Madison, is protecting the rights of these dogs by transporting them to the area to help them find “fur-ever” homes.

Wild hosts her own afternoon show, which plays throughout the area from  2 to 7 p.m. on Q94, while also being the radio station’s marketing consultant. 

Her days begin with sales work, connecting with clients while writing orders. During her mornings, she also attempts to figure out what she would like to talk about during the show later that day. She searches on Twitter country music related accounts for often light-hearted topics.
