Cindy Pollard is greeted by Porter Bidleman on Saturday morning at the Altamont fairgrounds where she took a spin in her wheelchair to support the Porter Challenge. Porter, 94, a World War II veteran, walks the fairgrounds twice a day with his walker. This month, the fair is hosting the Porter Challenge to honor him and encourage people to walk laps. Pollard is well known in Altamont both for her support of the fair and her support of veterans whom she hosts at her Home Front Café on Main Street.
