Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

Dawson Joseph Slechta, son of David and Heather Slechta of Montgomery, arrived at Queen of Peace Hospital in New Prague at 6:13 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 1, 2009, bringing an early end to this year's New Year's Baby Contest sponsored by The New Prague Times.

Dawson and his family, which also includes 2-1/2 year-old Izabela, win a package of prizes from area businesses sponsoring this year's contest. Bonnie Stevenson of New Prague was the winner of the contest to guess the date and time of the arrival. She guessed January 1 at 6:08 a.m, with the winning entry placed at Joe's Shoe Repair. She wins $100 in New Prague Certificates. Stephen Kaminsky of New Prague finished second, with a guess of 6 a.m. He wins $50 in New Prague Certificates. His entry was also placed at Joe's Shoe Repair.

Dawson's grandparents are Rick and Cathy Brockway of Montgomery, and Darwyn and Carole Slechta of Waterville.

David and Heather never anticipated having the New Year's baby when they learned they were expecting.

Our due date was December 26
