LA PORTE COUNTY - A group of people that have formed a Blue Ribbon Committee are working to help improve the financial standing of the LaPorte County Fairgrounds.  They are looking into one of the options, changing the oversight of the property without interfering with the fair.  Jack Arnett, executive director of the LaPorte County Convention & Vistors Bureau says the Agriculture Association that currently runs the fair and supervises events at the fairgrounds, had reached out to the county to try to get help financially.
