The Orange County Fairgrounds will begin 1993 with an $11.8-million budget that officials describe as "conservative." The budget, which includes money to resurface a portion of the fairgrounds and repair an aging electrical system, is slightly larger than the 1992 budget. It was approved by the Orange County Fair Board and the state Division of Fairs and Expositions over the past two months.

Pets are important parts of many families. But as far as the law is concerned, a pet is still just a thing, the Texas Supreme Court ruled on Friday. In a lengthy opinion, which notes that "even the gruffest among us tears up (every time) at the end of 'Old Yeller' ," the state court held that the death of a pet -- no matter how sad, how wrong or how important the animal may be -- cannot lead to a case of seeking damages for an emotional loss. "Pets are property in the eyes of the law, and we decline to permit non-economic damages rooted solely in an owner's subjective feelings,” the court held.

The carnival rides have been dismantled. Food vendors, already packed, are heading for the next county fair. Workers also started to remove the trash, wash the pavement, mow the browned grass and tear down exhibits Monday, a day after the 101st Orange County Fair concluded its 17-day run. "It's kind of like a ghost town," Jill Lloyd, fair spokeswoman, said Monday afternoon. "Everything's gone. It's kind of like when your best friend leaves town."

A Florida-based communications firm could lose its hold on an $80-million Orange County law enforcement communications contract for failing to meet technical standards demanded by a special review team, officials said Monday. Although the Harris Corp. enjoyed the support of Sheriff Brad Gates in winning tentative approval for one of the biggest contracts in recent county history, officials said the firm could not satisfy terms necessary for final approval by the Board of Supervisors.
