[August 25, 2014]
LINCOLN - Local artists and community
volunteers have created a whole new kind of horse. Some are brightly
colored, some have unusual features, most reflect a theme, but they
all have one thing in common - they were designed to raise funds and
awareness for the National Railsplitting Festival, to be held
Saturday and Sunday, September 20 and 21, at the Logan County
Bids can be made for the horse(s) of your choice, on display at a
business location in downtown Lincoln, and at Teleologic Learning
Company, Atlanta, until noon, Friday, September 19. At that time,
horses and bid sheets will be taken to the fairgrounds where the
silent auction will continue from 10 a.m., Saturday, until 2:30
p.m., Sunday, September 21, when winning bids will be announced
prior to activities leading up to the National Railsplitting
contest, scheduled for 3:15 p.m. Bidders do not have to be present
to win, but don’t forget someone else can up the ante until that
