Searching for something unusual



As for finding anything unusual, Fox said, “There really wasn't anything real interesting. Last year we found a tractor.”

A cookout for all who volunteered for the event took place at the beach area of Barren River Lake State Resort Park.

Following the cookout, door prizes as well as specialty prizes were awarded. Such specialty prizes included one for the most unusual item.

Stephan Smith, of the Rocky Hill community of Barren County, accepted a certificate of appreciation on behalf of his 12-year-old daughter, Jasmine, for finding the most unusual item. It was a cologne bottle shaped like a Buddha statue, which the family got to keep.

Winning the grand prize award, which was a kayak, was Joshua LaVigne of the Adolphus community of Allen County.

The Trashmasters' Classic is headed up by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who were assisted on Saturday by members of the Friends of Barren River Park and Lake.

As for the turnout for the event, Holly Myers, a park ranger for the U.S. Corps of Engineers, said, “It's about 60 people less than what we had last year. It's a pretty fair turnout and I feel good about it,” she said.
