dsc03774Here’s Joe preparing to sample some lamb meatballs while judging at the annual
Knox County Fair lamb cook-off Sunday.

This week we’re live at the Knox County Fair bringing you updates and interviews.  Today’s Mystery Monday question also had to do with the fair’s history:

The land where the Knox County Fairgrounds sits was purchased by the Knox County Commissioners in 1928 for $9,000.  What year was the current grandstand built?

The answer? 1932…and it was erected by the Mount Vernon Bridge Company.  Read more about Knox County Fair history by clicking here. Congratulations to Karolyn of Mount Vernon who won the $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.

We also gave away a pair of tickets to see Lecrae at the Ohio State Fair this Thursday, July 28th. Congratulations to Lori from Mount Vernon who won the tickets. We’ll give away our last pair tomorrow!

Our Word of the Day today was pantechnicon, which is a British noun meaning a moving van or a furniture van.

Thanks for listening!

-Joe
