Balloon race is a bust

    This was the fourth year in a row that we've started the Johnson County Fair with the annual balloon race.  The race is always on opening day and this year was no exception.  What was exceptional however, was the turnout.  The first thing we noticed were fewer balloons than normal. In fact, we only saw two get to take off.  The other five or six were ready to go but then suddenly the crews began tearing them down.  Weather seemed okay so we weren't sure what happened.  Regardless, we still got to see some balloons, but more importantly got to eat the ever-famous shish-ka-bob and rice!
