Tara Hadley Hansen asks, from Utah - Fairgrounds gone?

Tara Hadley Hansen writes:
This is Tara Hadley - Hansen, Tiff Kessler's little sis. I don't know if you remember but I live in Utah. I recently found out the Adair County Fairgrounds may soon be a thing of the past. Is this true? Do you know anything about this? Anything that can be done?

I love reading the old newspapers (early 1900's) from Adair County on the Kentucky Digital Library and the Adair County Fair has been such a huge part of our history that it really saddens me to think the fairgrounds will be lost. The whole process may already be completed and I'm just doing some wishful thinking. :( - Thanks, - TARA.
Tara - There's a lot of speculation circulating around town now on this subject, but this year's fair is on in the same place, relatively same times, and is being enhanced this year by a circus performance. Starting today, we expect to have reminders of the 2015 Adair County Fair every day until the fair the giveaway. The schedule will be posted sometime this week. We'll be waiting for reliable information on the status of the fairground to think about the future. Hope you'll join all who cherish the tradition and get home to Adair County for this Fair. - EW
