Head in the Clouds

The 138th annual Rochester (NH) Fair began on Friday, and goes through Sunday, September 22nd. You can see by the photo that it features a school bus demolition derby.

The Hippo newspaper, sadly, has a couple of very bad spellings -- not just typos -- on page 44 of its September 12-18 issue..

So I thought I'd correct them.

You can shoot pumpkins at a school bus from a cannon, not a "canon" as the above story states.

And, in the info. box, it misstates the admission:

Cost: $14 admission, children under 36 feet receive free admission ....
Since we all tend to meet that description, then I believe that's an error.

The Hippo is a free newspaper that deserves some decent proofreading.
