I know that the elephant issue has dominated the talk about the upcoming Nevada County Fair. But at the end of our talk show Thursday, heard that the Destruction Derby will NOT be at the fair this year on Sunday night..for that matter, any night. It has been such a tradition for so many families that I know, I just found it shocking that it is not happening. Instead it will be replaced by “Monster Trucks” type of show. I know that the shows have been weak the last couple of years for the Derby, but to just cancel it…wow…not sure what to say. So, your turn…what do you think??
