These two teams made this heat of the outhouse race look like the chariot race in the movie “Ben-Hur.” The 7C-AFTRBRN, right, and Stanley Construction, left, outhouses were neck and neck and nearly collided. The rider on the Stanley Construction entry gasps, anticipating a crash, as the outhouse zips along on one ski. To the far left, members of team Kiddy Poop had that side of the course to themselves. Stanley Construction won the outhouse race, with 7C-AFTRBRN second and Kiddy Poop third. The “Unicrapper” got the most audience applause and won best of show with team members dressed in unicorn costumes. Todd Adams photos

Monarch in the clover. Although monarch butterflies had failed to materialize in numbers by the end of June this year, this specimen was seen in Michigan a few years ago.
