    Brooke Klinger of Andover is among 160 competitors at the KK Run for Vegas Junior World Finals Barrel Race and Pole Bending Dec. 10-14 in Las Vegas. The event is in conjunction with the National Finals Rodeo.

    "You can't understate the importance of the Inspector General calling a meeting." "This is the culmination of a lot of hard work by these kids, and they have all earned the right to compete in Las Vegas," said event coordinator Kelly Kaminski. "Each of these kids will be competing for over $150,000 in cash and prizes."

    Each competitor will run twice, and the top 20 contestants with the fastest two-run cumulative times will advance to the championship round.
