But those interested can learn more about the breed at the show, she said. "You can talk to anybody when they're not busy," she said. The show is among several this summer planned for the breed in Kansas, including another in Salina June 28. Additional shows are set for Wichita, Washington and the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, Odette said. Among the competitors in Salina this weekend will be Odette's daughter, Carol Lagasse. "She has shown for years and is very skilled at it," Odette said. Odette said she and her husband started raising paint horses in the 1970s as an alternative to American quarter horses, a breed with tough competition because of its popularity. Paints have all the same characteristics as quarter horses, but with a colorful coat. The horses are considered a symbol of the West because they are the descendants of two-toned horses brought to America by Spanish explprers. The horses escaped, eventually creating wild herds that were sought by cowboys and Native Americans, who coveted the flashy, hardy animals. Now the horses are used primarily for ranching and pleasure. Raising and showing paint horses is a good family activity, Odette said. "Some people, like us, have been in it a long time and others are just getting started and are as green as we were," she said. The Salina show will start at 9 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday and last until 4:30 or 5 p.m. Various classes of competition will occur throughout each day, and grand champions will be named for stallion, mare and gelding. Rodeo ropes record group of competitors 23rd annual 3-day event promises unruly animals for serious contestants By MARC SHEFORGEN The Salina Journal With a record number of competitors from all across the country, the Bennington Rodeo will saddle up tonight for its 23rd year of roping and riding. The 407 competitors are drawn by a $28,000 purse, said Dwayne Walls, chairman of the rodeo committee. One bull fighter is making the trip from Australia. "The good contestants who drive 500 miles to get here come here to win a paycheck," Walls said. "It's not like Bennington is the vacation spot of the world." Kyle Elwood, rodeo announcer and competitor in the team and calf roping events, said he expected . tough competition this weekend. "If you get somebody to drive up here from Texas, you know they're not coming up here because they're decent and win once in awhile," Elwood said. "They're coming up here to kick your butt." The JC Rodeo Co. of Roxbury is providing the livestock, and Elwood said that because of the serious competition, the company's most unruly animals would be in ' Bennington. Rodeo organizers hope to attract a capacity crowd to the 3,000'seat rodeo arena, with proceeds going to the local Lions Club. T CANCER VICTIM With funds, treatment offers hope Doctors urge local man to make trip to California, but financial aid needed By GORDON D. FIEDLER JR. The Salina Journal Timothy Powell, 29, was diagnosed with a brain tumor four years ago and was given months to live. A series of surgeries and cancer treatments bought him some time, but now, hope is dimming once more, unless.... At the Cedars-Sinai Neurosurgi- cal Institute in Beverly Hills, Calif., Dr. Keith Black has developed a technique using the body's immune response to treat brain tumors. Tumor cells are removed, genetically engineered and replaced. The genetically altered cells "eat" the tumor. Timothy's wife, Cindy, said the procedure has a 90 percent success rate. The problem is money. Timothy Powell was a machinist at Sunflower Manufacturing, Beloit, but hasn't been able to work for some time. He has qualified for Social Security. Cindy Powell works for Salina Youth Care in Salina. "We don't have the money to even go out there," she said. "We don't have airfare, we don't have anything." She said they can't even afford the $375 down payment the institute requires of patients before discussing treatment options, and they won't know the cost of the procedure until they get to California. Nevertheless, the Powells have made an appointment for June 10. A fund has been established at Great Plains Federal Credit Union in Salina to help with expenses. Doctors there and here urge the Salina couple to act quickly because of the progress of the tumor. "If we don't do something now he's got probably two to three months," Powell said.
