Best Yard Winner


Gary Forbeck was named the Best Yard Contest winner by the Kaw Housing Authority on Tuesday. The Kaw Enterprise Development Authority awarded him with $50 for his home maintenance efforts.

“Thank you very much. It’s a great honor to be recognized like this,” Forbeck told the KHA board after being presented with the check.

Aside from his well-trimmed lawn, Forbeck keeps a porch with a grill in his backyard, a small pond with fish on the east side of his house and plant arrangements in various parts of his lawn.

Among the flowers on the west side of his plot are moon flowers.

“They only bloom at night,” he said.

Forbeck was also honored for his lawn in August 1997, and it was featured in the mid-week edition of the Ponca City News on Aug. 6, 1997.
