Open up queen contest

I hear that the Fair people are not holding a “Fair Queen” contest this year. I don’t know why, but I would like to suggest some changes in the routine. I would like to see the competition open to different age groups for different years. For example, maybe next year we could have the 20- to 35-year-olds and the next, the 35- to 50-year-olds, and so on.

And someday if we wanted to “get over” our gender bias, we could open the contest to “other.” I do believe that there a few persons in the Nevada City area that would like to be crowned “Fair Queen.”
