The Amazing Owen, Ozzie the Juggler, Oliver the Daredevil and the Dazzling Varenka sounds more like a group of cleverly named super heroes tasked with providing entertainment all week at the Auglaize County Fair.
In actuality they were circus performers with the Zerbini Family Circus. A large contingent of children turned out for the show and undoubtedly saw the performers as at least action heroes.
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.
“He always licks me,” Montana Hulsmeyer said smiling after he was sold.
The Botkins girl never expected to earn such an honor with her first steer project at the county fair, but she has been practicing for it for years, having begun showing in Pee Wee shows when she was three years old.

“I try to help her,” Jordan said before Josee interjects with a teasing air, “I don’t like him to and he’ll say I think I know it all. Really I just like showing my brother up.”
