THE 151ST MARTIN COUNTY FAIR IS IN THE BOOKS AND FAIR BOARD PRESIDENT EDDIE MURPHY WAS PLEASED WITH HOW THINGS WENT AND SAID THE RAIN ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY SETTLED THE DUST BUT DIDN'T CANCEL ANYTHING AT THIS YEAR'S FAIR. THE MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT WENT ON AS PLANNED AND GOOD CROWDS ENJOYED THEM.

EDDIE REMARKED ON THE IMPRESSIVE NEW STRUCTURE ON THE FAIR THIS YEAR-THE MARTIN COUNTY PORK PRODUCERS FOOD STAND AND HE SAYS IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS WITH PLANS TO ENCLOSE IT IN ORDER TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR STORAGE SPACE YEAR ROUND.

EDDIE SAID THE 911/NEVER FORGET EXHIBIT WAS A POPULAR AND IMPRESSIVE DRAW FOR THE FAIRGROUNDS.

EDDIE MURPHY HAD AN INTERESTING STORY TO TELL ABOUT GUESSING THE WEIGHT OF THE BOAR AND TWO BULLS. THE BOAR WEIGHED IN AT 570 POUNDS. THE TWO BULLS HE SAID WERE NOT REGULAR FARM LOT BULLS -BUT INSTEAD WERE RODEO BULLS AND THEREFORE LOOKED A LITTLE HEAVIER THAN THEY ACTUALLY WERE - WITH A WIDE RANGE OF GUESSES AS TO THE ACTUAL WEIGHT-WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE 2855 POUNDS BETWEEN THEM.
