@betsub:At the rodeo

@bettxt:Yee haw! There ain't nothing like a good ol' rodeo to rouse you from a hazy, summer stupor. Better yet, this weekend's rodeo features the next generation of buckink-20>'k$>, bronco-ridin' stars\m>fresh-faced high school students whose youthful bodies are limber enough to put on a real show. To even qualify for the B>High School Rodeo State Finals$>, participants had to compete in more than 20 qualifying rodeos, and the four top qualifiers will go on to the nationals. If you want to see the real thing that inspired Ann Carlson's horse-bucking performance at ADF, head on over to the state fairgrounds in Raleigh at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for ages 6-12 and free for children under 12. For details, call 1-800-800-1548. \m>I>Laura Hatmaker
