    Triple country line-up set for main stageBy DALTON VITTStaff writer

    Country music will be the favored genre at this years Nodaway County Fair, with Maryville native Mitch Gallagher re-turning to perform for a hometown crowd along with fellow Show-Me Staters and budding Nashville stars Rickie Lee Tan-ner and Josey Milner later in the week.

    The 2014 fair carries the theme Fai-radise by the Carnival Lights and begins with the traditional round of youth live-stock shows July 15-17 at the Community Building arena just north of Northwest Missouri Regional Airport.

    The midway, along with other attrac-tions and events on the courthouse square, will open Thursday, July 17, and continue through Saturday, July 19.

    Gallagher will perform on the main stage downtown at 8 p.m. July 17. The country crooners tunes, which include his second EP, Where the Heart Is, have climbed as high as No. 41 on the iTunes Top 200 Country Albums chart.

    Other events planned for the fair this year include the Little Mr. and Miss Nod-away County competition at 6 p.m. July 17, which will be followed by the Nod-away County Queen Contest at 7 p.m.

    Also returning to the courthouse square stage this year at 8 p.m. Friday, July 18, is the Texaco Country Show-down, billed as the largest and longest-running country music talent search in the United States.

    The fair edition of the event is one of five Showdown contests taking place in northern Missouri this year.

    Opening act Milner and headliner Tanner take the stage Saturday night.

    Missouri-born Milner, whose show is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m., is known for her single Not Pretty Enough and earned a 2013 Independent Country Music Award nomination for Promising Young Artist.

    Tanner, from Belton, has two studio albums to his credit, including 2013s This Here. He is scheduled to perform two Saturday shows beginning at 8 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.

    A new addition to this years fair is Freddy the Fair Dog, a Bobby Bearcat-style mascot.

    Nodaway County Fair Board members said theyre introducing Freddy in order to give the event a more kid-friendly feel. Freddy will welcome families to the fair, march in the parade and be available for photo opportunities.

    In 1989, Fred and Sandi Von Behren moved to Maryville from Albany after Fred, who ran the Albany Hy-Vee grocery store for six years, was named to manage the retail food chains Maryville super-market.

    Twenty-five years later, the Von Beh-rens have become respected and beloved pillars of the Maryville community. And it is because of their tireless involvement in various community organizations and pro-grams that they have been selected by the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors to serve as grand marshals during the 2014 Nodaway County Fair Parade.

    The (Chamber) ambassadors nominate candidates each year, then select the grand marshal from those nominated, Chamber Executive Director Melanie Smith said.

    We are pleased and excited to have Fred and Sandi lead our 2014 Nodaway County Fair Parade. The Von Behrens do so much for the community and are very deserving of grand marshal status.

    Fred said his experience as an assistant manager at the Hy-Vee in Fairfield, Iowa, prior to moving to Albany was a key fac-tor in choosing to move to Maryville.

    Fairfield was about the same size of town as Maryville, Fred said. Sandi and I liked the size of the community, and the fact that Maryville had a university was a big draw for us as well. All three of our children graduated from Northwest, so that ended up being a wonderful plus for our family.

    The Von Behrens believe in being in-volved in their community, and a magnet they keep on their refrigerator is inscribed with the philosophy they have always lived by. It says: God gave us two hands: one to help ourselves and one to help oth-

    ers.We really try to live by that motto,

    Sandi said. But there are so many people in Maryville who do so much more than we do that we dont feel like we deserve this honor. At the very least, there should be a lot of people riding in the grand mar-shal car with us.

    Now retired, Fred continues to stay involved in various service clubs and or-ganizations. For her part, Sandi serves as one of Maryvilles biggest cheerlead-ers through her work with the Chambers New Resident Program.

    One thing I hear all of the time from people I meet through the New Resident Program is how friendly the people of Maryville truly are, Sandi said. Fred and I couldnt agree more.

    Though committed to service, Fred said that since retirement he has learned to bal-ance volunteerism and family.

    I said yes to everything during my

    first year of retirement, Fred said. That turned into kind of a long year, and I found I didnt have enough time to spend with my own family. Now Im involved in the programs that I really enjoy and have fun with.

    Fred is also quick to point out that without Sandis support he couldnt and wouldnt be nearly as involved as he is.

    If Sandi wasnt as supportive as she is, I wouldnt be able to help out as much as I do, Fred said. But shes great about it, and she knows how much I enjoy it. Plus, we get to do a lot of the activities together.

    The Nodaway County Fair Parade be-gins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 19. The new parade route, necessitated by upcom-ing construction work on Fourth Street, begins at Seventh and Walnut streets and proceeds east on Seventh before turning north on North Main.

    Back in February, in the midst of a snowy, cold northwest Missouri winter, planning for this years Nodaway County Fair was already underway.

    Braving the elements, a dozen mem-bers of the Nodaway County Fair Board made the long drive to Columbia for the annual Missouri Association of Fairs and Festivals meeting, a gathering that at-tracted representatives from nearly 200

    fairs and other public celebrations state-wide.

    Brian McPherson, who has been a member of the local fair board since the 1980s, said the convention is a chance for fair organizers from around the state to talk and share ideas while meeting with entertainers, booking agents, food concession owners and carnival opera-tors.

    While in Columbia, McPherson said the Nodaway group also participated in a number of seminars, including one about

    how to more effectively use the fairs website as a marketing and information
