LACK OF SUPPORT SENDS MESSAGE

It was recently my pleasure to judge the livestock at the Davis County Fair. I also was able to attend the sale of the 4-H and FFA animals. Congratulations and thanks to all who supported the sale and particularly to Reams and Tom Winegars for their excellent support.

I was disappointed to see that the two largest grocery chains in Davis County, and for that matter, the state - Smith's and Albertsons - were not present to support our youths at this worthy event. Their absence was noticed and commented on by many.I'm sure that none of these stores really need to purchase meat for their meat supply from local fairs such as this, but the show of support (or lack of support) certainly sends a message to the community.
