A spokesman for the Highway Patrol says it's business as usual preparing for the Missouri State Fair. Jack Dolan has the story from Jefferson City.
Lt. Ed Bleatnic says he doesn't intend to turn this year's fair into an armed camp. He says no threats have been made against the fair, and he doesn't expect any trouble. He says police will naturally be on extra guard after the bombing at the Olympics, but it's important not to get carried away.
Bleatnic says Fair security will be provided by regular police officers--and no private security agencies have been hired. From Jefferson City, I'm Jack Dolan.
