Why are the names in "no particular order"? There are a lot of fans of the Fair Queen contest out there that would like to know which girl is which. Friends and family would like their girls identified too! Can't the Banner get it right or is "no particular order" good enough?

I agree, come on Banner get it together. In years past they have been able to list the girls in order of how they appear, it's not like there are 50 of them there are 15. Really???

Unless I am not reading the caption correctly, the names are in order. The girls in the front row are listed starting from the left and then the second row also starting from the left.

The caption has been changed.

You guys suck!

Give the banner a break, we all make mistakes.

You are the same people who jump at every chance to point out the mistakes. GET A JOB or a life.

Couldnt you say something like.

"Dear Banner Graphic I have noticed a mistake in one of todays article"

If I worked at the Banner I would respond to everyone of you pointing out your grammatical errors. Saying come on cant you get it right ?

Its just a sentence!

My point is try and be nice.............

I would love to be the person who has nothing better in life to do than sit around and criticize other people! Maybe instead of complaining, you can post on here how you got to that point in your life? Get a hobby!

I dont even understand what you are saying?

YOU WROTE:Maybe instead of complaining, you can post on here how you got to that point in your life? Get a hobby!

Well Ok!

I am at the point in my life where I am successful and have a lovely family.

Currently I read my home town paper online(the Banner Graphic)and it disgusts me when I read comments like yours. People who have nothing better to do than complain about others. So with that in mind you should get up, turn off Opra, wipe the cheetos off your MOO MOO and do something with your life other than complain about others! Who are not at fault for your short comings in life.

Im really sorry if your life is miserable but dont take it out on others.

Oh and I have several hobbies:

Gardening, fishing, playing guitar, camping,reading etc

Dodgers Gone, Uh your posts (

I can't believe that all of these comments are all about the names not being in order. What happend to wishing these girls good luck or how beautiful they all look? Well, I am here to wish all these ladies the best of luck and to say everyone of you look like a queen to me.

If, You live in this county you all know most of these girls. I do and I am glad to see we have this many girls participating in the pagent. Good luck to all the girls and thanks to the gals that help make this possible every year. There is a lot of planning that goes into this.
