"Bainport" lease expires Saturday; fairgrounds won't extend


According to Sensata supporters protesting daily at the Stephenson County Fairgrounds, the fair board has decided to not extend the group's lease.

Supporters and Sensata employees set up camp at "Bainport" 52 days ago.

The lease was first expired last week.  A request to extend the group's stay was granted then, but a representative from the group says the board has denied them another extension.

Tom Gaulrapp's last day as a Sensata employee is Monday.

He says he doesn't know when the encampment will be forced to leave but thinks it could be sometime Saturday evening.
