Sandy Kleman (above), of Ottawa, hoses off her son Cole’s goat at the Putnam County Fair Monday. The goat apparently cleaned up earlier in the day too as it was named grand champion. Putnam County’s 164th annual fair kicked off Monday and continues through Saturday. Below, Don and Oneda Reed, of McComb, enjoy a break while taking in the first day of the Putnam County Fair Monday afternoon. Today’s fair highlights will include the Little Mister and Miss Putnam County Fair, harness racing and the 4-H Style Review Show. Today is also Kids’ Day, with all children under 16 admitted for free until 4 p.m. (Photos by Randy Roberts)
