I'll cry tomorrow.
I learned at a very early age that life is a battle. My family was poor, my neighborhood was poor.
This is an opportunity for the community of South Dakota to take part in planning the future of the State Fair and this beautiful property. I truly hope to see people from across the state take part in this open meeting.
It's an experiment year for us too. We had a young rock band last night, more of a kid's or college age and the night before that we had Loggins and Messina , and it was a little older group. So this is a trial for us. We'll see if people enjoy it, if they come, if they don't we won't do it again.
I'm tickled to death.
I'm not going to say I'm sold on a five-day fair, and I'm not sure we can do it.
Here we have this beautiful property. It is a state property. We should be very, very proud of it, and we should be taking care of it.
[Without financial help,] we put out fires, ... That's not any way to maintain a piece of property. Right now it is just catch-up for us.
I think the people of South Dakota would go absolutely berserk.
The cost to replace the dormitory is too much.
It's for the public, it's year round, and it's also for the schools because we're going to re-establish our school programs and all our outreach programs.
What we have done in past years is we have different types of shows, the rock bands, the '70s shows. We've gone back over five to six years and looked to see what has done the best, and it has always been classic country.
