Good times at the county fair

The weather may not have been the most comfortable. But nearly triple-digit temperatures didn't stop county residents from enjoying the Glenn County Fair.

Residents from around the county enjoyed the rides and the carnival concessions the fair had to offer.

The livestock auction went well for young county 4-H members.

Congratulations to Lisa Pence of Willows on being crowned the 2017 Miss Glenn County.

Orland offered something new to attendees: A walk-in beehive that celebrated the city's being named "Queen Bee Capital of North America."

This was a great event.

Orland author honored for book

Congratulations to Orland-raised author Steve Callan on having his latest book named best outdoor novel.

Callan grew up in Orland and has published two books on the experience. The Outdoor Writers Association of California recently honored his second book, "The Game Warden's Son," naming it the best outdoor novel of the year.

"I was flabbergasted when I won," Callan said.

This was a great honor and Orland should be proud of Callan.
