The Times recently asked its online readers, "Do you plan on attending the 2008 Clay County 4-H Fair?"
Readers were given three options, including:
* Yes. I have children involved in the fair,
* I might, but probably not, or
* No. I won't be attending this year.
A total of 210 readers responded to the poll, with 104 (49.5 percent) stating they would not be attending the fair.
Fifty-nine voters, however, said they would.
Of the 210 readers that responded, 59 voters represented 28.1 percent.
A total of 47 readers (22.4 percent) said they might attend the fair.
Four readers also responded to the poll.
One reader said, "They never have anything out there. It is a big area, use it. Make more people want to come. Offer more things besides just animals."
The current Times' online poll question deals with sales tax at the state level.
Recently, Democratic candidate for State Representative in District 44 Nancy Michael conducted a press conference in Clay County asking Gov. Mitch Daniels to suspend the sales tax on gasoline for the remainder of the summer.
The Times is asking its readers, "Do you support suspending the sales tax on gasoline?"
Readers are given two options to choose from, including:
* Yes I do, or
* No I don't.
As always, readers are encouraged to comment on the poll question.
