August 28th, 2008. Watseka, IL. 20 miles. Field. Showers. Good crowds and business.

We’re back in the land of Lincoln. I first visited KM in IL while I was still on Culpepper & Merriweather in the spring. High prices for corn haven’t helped the local economies here yet. I always think of circus pioneer Yankee Robinson in Illinois. First show with a forty horse parade hitch. Business partner and mentor to the Ringling Bros...

Animal trainer Doug Terranova visited the show today. So did circus owner manager Jim Judkins.

Unfortunately, high corn prices aren't helping anyone, they are hurting EVERYONE. Higher food prices, higher fuel prices, less supply since corn is going to make ethanol...

It's hurting the smaller economies the worst.

Good to see you saw Terranova, we haven't seen him in two years.
