Why is there an admission fee for the fair?

I don't ever recall paying for entrance into a county fair in Indiana.

Levi Briggs will be headlining the concert tomorrow night.$10, and $15 tickets.

The admission fee this year is to pay for upgrades to the facility and grounds. There is a new fair board this year, and the last board members left the fair flat broke last year. The restrooms need upgraded, and a new grandstand has to be built for next year. As you might know, Plumbing is not cheap...and the Grandstand is way overdue for upgrades to keep everyone safe. You might have noticed the rides aren't even running yet, ALSO due to last years fair board. They forgot or failed to schedule them on time. That WILL BE fixed for next year.
As you might notice, I know quite a bit about what's going on. Trust me, they are working very hard to make sure they get this situation turned around for next year.
If you see the folks on the Golf carts in blue shirts, talk to them. Tell them what you'd like to see differently next year, they are being very open minded about the future. After all...It is YOUR FAIR!
Be patient this year, it's like when a Sports star retires and a team has a rebuilding year, the administration of the fair is no different. They will learn by hearing from you. Just be respectful and reasonable. You'll be very excited and glad you did. Remember, everyone working there is a volunteer who just days ago was assigned a job.

The new bathroom band aid fix was $7000 right off the top this year. Years of neglect by the old fair board. Heck, they are using inmates to clean up the grounds this year. It's a win win for the county.
Perhaps, people who complain should volunteer next year.

Why are you being so negative towards a person who stated a fact?

No need to take that posture. You just stated above that people are available to talk to on the fairgrounds. If your response is any indication of what one would get by engaging one of them in conversation, that doesn't sound very promising.

SMH...

Who is Crook and Bell?

I don't understand what you are saying, Clodhopper.

I was simply commenting on the one dollar fee for gaining entry to the basic fair.

I apologize for no proofreading my comments. I assure you, I'm not the person you think I am. Matter of fact, I only recently returned to the area after 20 years away, working for the Government for most of that time.
let me clarify, I would think that if you are unhappy with something, you have to be the change you hope to see in the world.
I have served in the Marine Corps, worked for the Navy afterwards, then changed careers. Always volunteering to work with Big brothers and big sisters. The United way, The boys and girls club, meals on wheels, and feeding the homeless. It's not always a feel good story either. Sometimes, when you can't help someone, it rips your heart out.
Again, I apologize for being callous. I'm a no nonsense type of person. I returned to the area to find conditions here in town to be less than desirable.
I do not know all the good and bad things that have happened here in the last 20 years, but I know I will work to make the next 20 better for everyone I can. In my experience, EVERYTHING can always be improved upon, Including the Clinton County fair. All I'm saying is bear with the changes this year, things can only get better.

Something that everyone can do to help the area is to vote. Elect Libertarians, who don't belong to the good ole boy system. No Republicans, and no Democrats. People who want equality for everyone. Not just their connected friends. Nepotism is and has always been rampant here in Franktucky. When one political party dominates the scene for too long, wrath is siphoned into the hands of a few.

Pip had a great heart for the people, didn't have ability to grow business and promote city. Don't misunderstand me, that wasn't a knock, Pip can hold his head up.
