Local takes second at State Fair

Charlotte Silhan ( on the right), 7, took second place for the third time at the Kansas State Fair Pedal Pull. She stands next to the National Champion who took first place for the third time. Silhan, who lives in Hillsboro, puts herself through a rigorous training program during the year of pogo sticking, bike riding and other area pulls in order to be ready for the State Fair. Silhan got close to a 30 ft “full pull” with 29 feet beating the third place finish by two feet. First place pedaled 29 ft, 8 inches.
