I overheard an adult representative of the county pageant (I think they were calling him "mr matt") discussing things about contestants for the pageants with other contestants in the same pageant. He made some very crude insinuations that as an adult and leader certainly should not be made with other individuals especially other contestants. If he wants to act like a child or a teenage gossiping girl, maybe he needs to be treated as one.

agree 100%! No place but here do they have it in the July heat. The rest of the world does it in the fall. Arkansas logic at its worst

i say since hes clearly part of the fair then he can say whatever he wants when hes talking about the fair, contestants, and etc. just stop worrying about everyone else and make sure your own hands are clean.

well did you have to listen to a bunch of little kids who can't understand why they can't get on the rides? No bet not. Its just how ignorant batesville is.
