Duck races canceled; but winners still drawn in Dixon
Tina Barnhart, from the Dixon Alzheimer's Association office, reads names of the winners in the duck race Saturday after conducting a drawing. The race, a highlight of Reagan Trail Days, was canceled because of a fire, which caused the Dixon City Fire Department to be busy during the races. The department's personnel were supposed to help gather up the ducks at the end of the race.
