Howland siblings are fair royalty
BAZETTA -- Howland siblings are junior fair king and queen at the Trumbull County Fair.
William Bauer, 16, and Ann Bauer, 18, were crowned in ceremonies on the Historical Village stage at the fairgrounds Monday night.
Both home-schooled, the brother and sister have been active members of the junior fair board for several years.
Ann has been involved in 4-H since age 7, showing rabbits, arts and crafts, sewing and, this year, amphibians.
William has been involved in 4-H Imagineers and Krafty Kids programs, and this year is competing in small-animal judging with his pet iguana.
Part of their duties as king and queen will be presenting ribbons and trophies to other fair competition winners.
The fair began with harness racing Sunday and Monday and officially opened this morning. It runs through this Sunday.
