* Photos and informaton were found at the Lake Festival website, but it was experiencing some problems. Please do not judge these ladies by the serious looks in some of these pictures; they all went to the same place and it is obviously the photographers style; images and services are is usually donated by Photography by Terry.

* I may not be able to post results until tomorrow; check The Daily Standard's website.


  1. Okay, let's see if I can predict two in a row...Devon!!! I have known Devon's mom for years and love her!!! She is such a sweet and classy lady and I know that she has instilled those qualities in her daughter.

  2. By the way, Terry is no longer in the area. He did a great job, didn't he? He has moved to Kansas, I believe.

  3. OK, I got this one wrong...I had to leave the pageant early due to an unfortunate event but I did feel that Devon lost alot of points in her ontage interview. She is beautiful and such a SMOOTH dancer, just awesome!
