    The 2015 LaRue County Fair is a month away and volunteers have been cleaning and renovating the fairgrounds on Greensburg Street.

    Volunteers are sprucing up the grandstands which date to the 1930s. They are removing rotted boards and plan to replace them with donated lumber. Johnson said work started on the north end of the stands and will be completed in stages.

    Some of the wood appears to be “petrified,” he said.
