Fun at the fair


Spectators filled the grandstand Saturday evening at the Clinton County Fairgrounds, others stood up and watched and still more people sat in an area close to the action for the demolition derby at the 2015 Clinton County Fair. There were plenty of smash-up collisions in a lawnmower class of vehicles pictured above. The purple vehicle on the right was named Grape Ape.

It comes naturally for her. Samantha Woodruff, 6, helps out on Sunday at the Swine Breeding Show & Showmanship event. Her role was to pull a board to enable swine to continue through a chute pen that leads to the show ring. She is a daughter of Brad Woodruff and a granddaughter of Martin Woodruff, both of whom have helped a lot over the years in the hog barn at the county fair.
