Raymond Uherek got this 5’3” rattlesnake (tip to tip) on Monday. He was just outside their yard fence crossing the road when Raymond arrived in his Jeep. No gun along so he pounded the snake's head with rocks. The second snake is a unique specimen caught by Jeff Grote. The snake has no markings; but, still had a lot of rattler attitude!

We had a great convention Saturday! There were 21 loyal Democrats in attendance. Dan Barton manned the registration table and Mary Freytag was elected Secretary. We opened with the Pledge of Allegiance to the US flag and joined together to sing the “Star Spangled Banner”. We sounded pretty darned good, too! Many local issues were discussed, including the past primary, ACA enrollment, and voter registration.
