Selfies: Carbondale’s Wild West Rodeo in full swing

The Post Independent most Wednesdays publishes a photo story featuring a single topic. Taken from the last name of the PI staff photographer/videographer Chelsea Self, these weekly stories are called Selfies. The feature will include a page of photos in the paper and, online, a digital slideshow and video at If you have an idea for a topic, email Chelsea at

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo is every Thursday until Aug. 18 — gates open at 5:30 p.m., slack at 6 p.m., and Grand Entry at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the gate — $10 per person or $30 per carload.
