Iowa State Fair Nixes Ticket Plan Following Public Feedback

 Iowa State Fair officials say they're now scrapping plans to eliminate cash sales at food vendors and other attractions, following a heavy public backlash. The Iowa State Fair Board canceled plans for the cashless payment system at a meeting Thursday. Fair officials announced Tuesday that they would sell 50-cent tickets online and at multiple locations at the fairgrounds for food and other rides. They said the new system would be more secure and speed up food purchases.
