Hot, dusty weekend for Thresher’s show

Chris Klossner moves back from a steam engine’s fire box after stoking it during the 57th Gasconade County Threshers Association’s Steam Engine and Threshing Show. Temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s kept attendance down throughout the three-day demonstration held at Rosebud’s Community Park.  Participants in a pony pull competition eat dust as the team digs in to move the weighted sled.
