Finishing her reign in style

Olivia Funderberg doesn’t let her queen’s crown, summer dress and flip-flops deter her from making some serious headway during Thursday evening’s tractor pull at the Tiskilwa Pow Wow Days event. Olivia completed her reign as the 2012 Lil’ Spurs Queen on Thursday evening when Hailey Musgrave won the 2013 Lil’ Spurs pageant held at the West Park. Other events today, Saturday, include the annual parade at 10 a.m., plus lots of children’s games, food stands, live music and a beer garden.
