Mx-fc and I decided to ht'Jkl 3 on JsvtVm Boulevard uvs:wi vf vvvfi. After an hours ? Jsrvl ourselves in Clewwrotr.. Kirv of the Hendry County It as about 7-JO p.m. wK' A-nwd and about 10:30 p.m. !v f k-ft. We spent most of that tu:v wasting for the action to start. Sure, the midw3v wus it-adv to Deb Welky Out ofMv Head It seemed as if the entire county was in that tent. The bleachers were packed with spectators. The preteen Queens of the Fair were at center stage, ready to dispense the winners' ribbons. Video-graphers amateur and professional were jockeying for position. The scene lived up to every promise made by the fair's theme "Mardi Gras." "I guess everyone has their own definition of Mardi Gras," I whispered to Mark. "Shhh," he responded. "It's time for the judging." The kids parading their hogs had waited all year for this, not to mention the anticipation of the hogs themselves. Several of them (the hogs, not the kids) had to be separated from each other by handlers who unceremoniously shoved plywood between the Ro-meos and Juliets of the group. The air was electric with suspense and fragrant with something else. After careful deliberations, the judge motioned for the queen to bring over the blue ribbon. "This is just what we in the industry look for," he said, standing over one particularly huge porker. "He's a little loose in the belly with good meaty hams." The jubilant crowd gave new meaning to the phrase "hog wild." The pig's owner grinned broadly. Flash cameras lit up the room. But reality hit when I saw a Winn-Dixie representative reach for his checkbook. "Let's go," I said to Mark. We were glum on the ride home, having gained a deeper understanding of "the industry" and a newfound respect for bacon. The atmosphere was different back at the fair. The crowd happily surged out of the tent over to the arts and crafts area, into the mobile homes and onto the rides. Many climbed onto the roller coaster for a relaxing ride . . . now that the real excitement was over. Horah Efrochim, a youth dance troupe from Israel, represents Israel and Jerusalem in festivals all over the world and is made up of 40 dancers ages 1 1-12. Youth dancers to perform at temple replied. "We've just got to find them." When the ride stopped, we set out for the arts and crafts tent. There were quilts, preserves and 4-H displays, but even the vendors sitting in their booths gave us odd staies that asked, "What are you doing here?" We admired the new tractors, took a good long look at the latest in mobile homes and then, quite by accident, stumbled upon the mec-ca of Hendry County the hog tent. U roll, but no one was near it. The Infractor pull was scheduled to start, ibut there were no contestants. !The cotton candy and cinnamon 12 buns and taffy apples were there for the eating, but no one was "buying. Mark and I sat by our-. selves at the top of the ferns . wheel, rocking slowly back and forth as we looked out over the ! deserted fairgrounds. ! "And to think I couldn't find a ! parking space," Mark said. "It's : eerie." ' "They're here somewhere," I Medical Society offers free physician referral Horah Efrochim, a youth dance troupe from Israel, will perform April 5 at Temple Emanu-El of Palm Beach in celebration of Israel's 50th Anniversary. The team represents Israel and Jerusalem in festivals all over the world and is made up of 40 dancers ages 11-12. Known for short as Horah, the team epitomizes the joyful spirit, motion and charm of youth, and the young state of Israel. The dancers are stopping in Palm Beach County following a performance for the Jewish community in Mexico City. They will leave Palm Beach and head to Disney World and return to Israel before Passover. While in the area, troupe members will stay in the homes of Jewish families with children who also are into dance. "We're delighted that this ex traordinary dance troupe is spending the weekend with us," said Efraim Warshaw, Rabbi for programming and education at the temple. "It's more than just a Sunday afternoon performance. It's a real cultural exchange with the young dancers spending three days in the homes of different temple members. "I saw them perform when I lived in Jerusalem. They drew huge crowds because of their dynamic style and their love of what they do so well." Next Sunday's 4 p.m. gala performance will be filled with numerous costume changes with colorful and exciting dances from Israel. Admission is $5 for adufts, $2.50 per teen, $2 per child and are available in the school office, 190 N. County Road, Palm Beach or by calling 832-0804.
