Frank Dick retrieves more cleaning material Friday as he cleans the Dick's Corn Dog concession stand in preparation for the Missouri State Fair which opens Thursday. Dick said this will be the 39th year for the concession at the fair and that the stand has been in the same location across from Grandstand. "My wife Shirley and sister-in-law, Bonnie, are the real bosses, I am just the hired help," he said.
