Sue, there was no update because there has been no new information. We got the word out and the community responded, as 181 people shared our Facebook post about it. That marks the most shares we've ever had for one story. However, nothing new has surfaced in this case.

While taking shelter from the downpour Friday night, I told fair board president David Todd that there never seems to be a happy medium with the weather for fair week. It's either 110 degrees or raining cats and dogs. OK, maybe it's not always 110 degrees, but it sure does get hot. Of course, we do live in Kansas... and it's August. The rain did hamper the mud run, as the rain chased away several spectators. But it appeared as though several people stuck around for other fair festivities. And there appeared to be a pretty good crowd for the livestock auction.

At the office working to post some photos from Saturday's Leavenworth County Fair festivities and took a look outside. I certainly hope the rain makes the area cooler and then goes away for the evening activities at the fair.
