Citizen of the year
The Goodhue County Fair Board has found itself in some sticky situations in its 150 years. There was the time the board inaugurated female mud wrestling, for instance.
The decision generated controversy, so the figurative mud flew before the fair even began, and the event attracted a crowd. The cleanup, however, produced the most memorable moment.
"See, the fair doesn't have showers," Jim Foss recounted to gales of laughter.
