Update on the Michele and rodeo 'mishap.'

"Three board members (of the rodeo) told The Tribune the announcer was Ed Kutz of Arroyo Grande, but that fact has yet to be officially confirmed. Barrett called Kutz asking him to publicly apologize, but has yet to get a hold of him."

snip;

"Hayhurst has performed at the event for several years, but is an independent contractor and not officially affiliated with the rodeo, said Creston Classic Rodeo board member Mike Barrett. Speaking on behalf of the rodeos nine-member board, Barrett said that the board is not responsible for the joke and will ask Hayhurst for a letter addressing the issue and a public apology. The board will discuss at its next meeting if it will fire Hayhurst, and will review scripts for future performances by any clown. We probably wont be using his services in the future, Barrett said of the clown."

So did this guy run for the Republican nomination also and we just missed him?

7. a rodeo clown

 

made an ugly sexist, racist comment about the First Lady over the broadcast system.

the comment had to do with Mrs. Romney being on the cover of Playboy and the First Lady being on the cover of National Geographic.

6. This article is choice

1. Reporters called him at the hospital:

Hayhurst said: I cannot believe how insensitive you are. I am in the hospital. He then uttered a vulgarity and hung up.



2. Hayhurst is a charter school administrator.

3. Comments

A woman who refused to give her name but said she lives east of Creston said, Its called freedom of speech. I dont think (Hayhurst) did anything out of the ordinary. ... Lets not blow things out of proportion.

Another man who lives in Creston, who also declined to be named, said, Its not racist at all. Its a joke. If these people are offended by that, then they dont need to come to our rodeo.
