MONROE - Getting into the cheese sales tent at Green County Cheese Days should be less of an effort this year. The 160-foot tent is 60 percent longer than last year, and special buying-only areas have been set aside for those who know what they want - no more waiting behind the samplers to decide which of the hundred varieties they like best. People were invited to "come on in and mill about," decimating a waiting line that was backing up by 11 a.m. Friday, just an hour after the tent opened.
