Former sheriff hired as new fair manager
Former Hill County Sheriff Tim Solomon will take over as manager of the Hill County Fairgrounds.
Solomon will fill the vacancy left by Mike Spencer, who announced his resignation last month after nine years on the job. The Great Northern Fair Board selected Solomon Wednesday night after an interview process that lasted several hours, said fair board president Jerry Hanson.
Solomon said he is looking forward to managing the Great Northern Fair.
"There are some real challenges up there," he said. "(The fair board members) were confidant in my abilities and I'm happy to have the job."
