CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The usual harbingers of bad luck failed to work their contrary magic Saturday as Katy Mitchell, the 2007 Franklin County Fair Queen, became the first woman from the county to wear the crown in the 22-year history of the Pennsylvania State Fair Queen pageant. When the 18-year-old Fort Loudon, Pa., woman was named county fair queen in August, a deluge forced the pageant from an outdoor stage into a show tent. At Saturday's pageant in Hershey, Pa., the James Buchanan High School senior's contestant number was 13 among the 53 women competing for the title.
