MARSHALL CO. â€” The carnival is back.
Marshall County 4-H Fair Board President Ron Rensberger said that after not having a carnival at the fair last year, the board has decided to bring it back for this yearâ€™s fair.
â€śPeople wanted the carnival, but they wanted a good carnival â€” something that looks good and is safe,â€ť said Rensberger, adding, â€śThatâ€™s what we all want.â€ť
The carnival that used to be at the fair is now unavailable because of cost and scheduling changes, said Rensberger. A new carnival called Circus City Amusements will be entertaining fairgoers.
ARGOS/PLYMOUTH â€“ Writing is like showing beef steers? Really?
Yes, said author Michelle Houts, as she spoke to students at Argos Elementary and Washington Discovery Elementary in Plymouth Friday. She was in Marshall County to headline the Young Authorâ€™s Conference in Bremen the same evening.
Her childrenâ€™s book â€śThe Beef Princess of Practical Countyâ€ť was not unknown to the students at either school. They had clearly been reading (or hearing, in the case of younger students) the book prior to the authorâ€™s appearance.
