Right: Kathy Dash stands by as clips featuring Clay County highlights from News Channel 2 stories are shown during the Focus Awards at North Clay Middle School Monday evening.

Top left: Brazil native Henry Lee Summer rocks the Brian's Motorsports Stage at Wavestock in Waveland, Ind., early Saturday evening. Summer closed his performance with "Wish I Had a Girl", the song that he bragged kept Robert Plant out of No. 1 on the charts for two weeks in a row. "I am not a one-hit wonder," he told the crowd, citing his opening number, "Hey, Baby", as another successful song.

Bottom left: Several grown cats interact with one another at the humane shelter. June is Adopt-A-Cat month at the Clay County Humane Shelter and all cats and kittens can be adopted for $30. This fee includes vaccination fees for Rabies, Kennel Cough, wormer and a spay or neuter procedure which all animals must have before they leave the shelter to try to control the animal population. Statistics show that two unaltered cats and all their unaltered descendants can number as many as 420,000 in just seven years.
