Build it and they will come.
Pre 1971 before Springfield I lived in Carbondale next door to Buckminster Fuller. It was really cool living next door to a famous inventor. I think Bucky could send Sangamon County Fair numbers through the roof. His most acclaimed invention was the Geodesic Dome. The Sangamon County Fair Board should consider erecting a giant dome and placing the fair within it. Weather would no longer be a factor. It’d be 72 degrees in there year round. In the off season they could rent the place out as camper storage. Yea! Covered camper storage! Plus, the noise would be contained inside making New Berlin evenings peaceful again. Security wouldn’t be a problem. No kids can sneak in when they gotta break through a friggin’ Geodesic dome! What the Astrodome did for Houston, the Sangamon County Fair Dome will do for New Berlin. Can’t afford it? This is Illinois. Worry about that later.
