Melody Ramirez, emcee for the circus, said the circus has been in the family for more than 250 years.

Waiting to go into the auction ring for the Auglaize County Junior Fair Livestock Sale on Friday, the Reserve Champion Beef Steer “Springsteen” couldn’t stop giving his 9-year-old showman affectionate licks with his long tongue.
