Reporter Ed Mahon takes his beat seriously, and he's camping at the CDT tent at the Grange Fair early this week.
Why not, even though the tent is unfurnished?
Mahon covers schools and Penns Valley in particular, writing the weekly On Centre column on the Valley.
He loves it, and it shows. Look for his report tomorrow offering a glimpse at late night at the fair, and then look for his column Saturday on a first-timer's experience there.
Hope to see all of you at the fair in coming days. I'll be out around 5 p.m. at the CDT tent and will stay for the shows, as always.
Might have to take a jacket tomorrow, but that's better than rain and mud.
Enjoy the fair.
