It's become one of those stories that just gives you pause to smile.
You see, to the late, legendary folksinger/storyteller U. Utah Phillips, the Nevada County Fair was an annual ritual for him.
"Everything in the world moves a little too quickly," he theorized in a KVMR 89.5 FM broadcast from the Nevada County Fairgrounds maybe 20 years ago. "But you walk into the gate to this fair and everything is where it was last year, the year before and the year before that."
Then Phillips added this observation, with that special twinkle in his eye.
