EAST BERNE — Beverly Simmons liked to think of herself as a “tough broad,” her family said, and, in her last years, she needed to be.

Following a long illness, Beverly (née Kelsch) Simmons died peacefully on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014. She was 60.

The owner of Disc-connected K9s, which performs tricks with dogs at the fair, was once an Ultimate Frisbee world champion. 

Kids are captivated by a variety of challenges among the bright lights and stuffed animals at the fair.

Last year? Forget it. The year before? Uh-uh. This week, with 12 hours to spare before the final deadline, my girls and I managed to enter our exhibits for the Altamont Fair using the online registration forms. Thank goodness for a fair rooted, by a router, in the 21st Century!

Blacksmiths Daniel Crowther and Sarah Ritchie-Crowther explore the Iron Age and their own roots by re-enacting the way the Celts lived before Christ was born.

ALTAMONT — For the uninitiated, a deluge of questions, from tactile to ethical, can and should arise when holding a loaded weapon. 

The Altamont Fair will be bringing back old favorites this year as well as bringing new attractions to the tri-county fair.

The Altamont Fair makes agriculture real for city kids and country kids alike.
