GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — It might look like state troopers are just having a good time, but they'll actually be doing their jobs when they inspect the midway games at the Nebraska State Fair this week.

The Nebraska State Patrol will conduct inspections of the games today in Grand Island.

The inspections will ensure that the carnival games are in compliance with Nebraska gambling laws.

That means the games must be games of skill, not games of chance, and must be fair and winnable.
