Ray talks about things he saw at the fair, wonders why Marvin isn’t at the fair and talks to Fair Director Amy Bliefnick. Then Frank Edwards joins the show and comments about the Liquor license controversy from last weeks council meeting. This leads to a call from one of the owners of the bar who calls in and reveals the city gave them a letter that they had to sign or they wouldn’t get their license that the council already decided they could have. Pretty interesting news unfolds on this episode.
