There was a new winner at the tractor pull at the annual Harvest Fest held recently at Kusilek’s Hillside Farm. Janice Pechacek drove for the first time and took first place against eight experienced pullers, including her husband. Her father, the late local farmer Roman Pechacek, died in November due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease. His birthday would have been Aug. 30 and Janice wanted to honor his memory by participating in something Roman loved, so she wore his “John Deere” pulling shirt, his “John Deere” cap and drove his John Deere tractor in the event he loved.
