All participants riding the rides must obey all rules set by Burton Brothers Amusements. This is for the safety of all involved. Burton Brothers Amusements is aptly named for the four sons of Roger and Janice Jessop Burton; Bradd, Benjamin, Bryce and Brent, who are all in business as owners with their parents. The 30 ride company carries a multitude of family games. Each member of the Burton family is also owner of independent ride and food services. The entire family has been raised in the carnival industry and are 5th generation concessionaires. The four Burton Brothers grew up on the family farm in Henry County, Indiana and were active in 4H, as their parents were active 4-H leaders, providing a solid understanding of the rural
aspects of county fairs and festivals. They all continued as adults in the concession business, buying independent rides until they combined all their knowledge into the carnival amusement ride service with a solid reputation. Our company is based on loyal, close family values and principles. Safety at Burton Brothers Amusements is a top priority. Prior to opening, each piece of equipment is carefully inspected by a skilled midway manager and a ride superintendent using an inspection checklist. Each winter, we work extensively repairing, repainting and refurbishing our equipment at our full service winter quarters facility in Shirley, Indiana. Each member of our family is certified NAARSO safety inspectors.

Entertainment SPITTIN’ IMAGE Identical twin brothers who love to sing and play their instruments as much as they love to entertain an audience. Intertwining wonderful vocal ability with excellent musicianship, and mixing it all with comedy, audience participation, and a high energy show. Top 40 and classic country mixed with classic rock and roll is the music they love to perform. But, the twins also enjoy singing gospel and pop standards from the20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Blain and Brian Swabb were born and raised, and still live in Greenville, Ohio, Darke County. They started picking their instruments at a young age, and by the time they turned 13 years old the twins formed their first group. At 14 years old they were performing most weekends. After graduating from high school, the two traveled the Midwest playing the hotel and resort circuit. After
8 years on the road, they came back to their hometown to own, operate, and perform in their nightclub, “My Brother’s Place”, which they had for 15 years. In 1998, the twins went back out on the road, and now average over 500 shows per year. They cover most of Ohio and surrounding states. Spittin’ Image is two of the most versatile, fun-loving, enthusiastic performers you’ve ever seen. With extensive and outstanding musical skills and a terrific variety of fine-tuned comedy routines, Spittin’ Image will surprise and delight your audience. Brian does most of the lead vocals and also adds the harmony to the sound. He is a wonderful guitar player and probably knows a million chords. Besides sequencing all the added background instrumentation (drums, bass, piano, etc…), he is the emcee for the group. Blain is the oldest twin (by 26 minutes). He can play the heck out of his Gibson 8-string mandolin, but is equally at home on his custom made 5-stringmandolin. When he’s not playing the mandolin he is playing his harmonicas or adding his vocal talents. He also has a love of doing pantomimes.
THE BROKEN LIGHTS The Broken Lights formed in July 2010, taking their name from a lyric in The Beatles' "Across the Universe." The band has entertained at many Miami Valley area venues, including McGuffey's House of Rock and the Tipp City Mum Festival. Their specialty is covering classic rock from the 1970s and 1980s, and writing and performing their own rock originals infused with a touch of the blues. The Broken Lights recently cut a demo CD of six original songs written by the band members: Tyler Cochran (guitar & vocals, age 19, Vandalia, OH), Andy Uzzel (bass, age 16, Tipp City, OH), and Zach Grove (drums, age 18, Vandalia, OH).

MELODY MEN CHORUS RUM RIVER BLEND Rum River Blend, based in Troy, Ohio bill themselves as 'Unprofessional Entertainment'! The band takes its name from the Rum River that flows through Linda's hometown of Milaca, Minnesota. They perform a blend of traditional bluegrass, folk, Gospel and children's songs. The audience is encouraged to join in on the fun as kazoos, spoons, washboards, and various other noise making instruments are often passed out to the crowd. Linda Tatarian, the 'leader of the band' plays 5-string banjo and sings like a good Minnesotan should. Chris Tatarian plays rhythm guitar and sings back-up vocals in a California style that only he knows. Chris and Linda are the "roots" of Rum River Blend and have played together since 1992. After moving to Ohio in 2000, they have played with a variety of talented musicians. The bass beat for the band is provided by Mr. ’Smiling’ Bill Benning, playing acoustic/electric bass guitar. Bill plays with a flair developed over time playing a wide variety of musical types with many different bands. Mr. Carl Phillis joins us on fiddle. Carl has years of professional musical experience, having played with most bands and orchestras in the area at one time or another. He is the 1948 Ohio State Fiddle Champion, and is a professor of Bluegrass Fiddle Music at Sinclair College in Dayton. His fiddle playing brings a new level of energy and a host of new songs to the band. On special occasions, RRB is joined by Mark Acton with harmonious vocals and Mandolin. Put 'em all together and the result is music that makes you want to tap your foot and sing along! Rum River Blend appears regularly at the Hotel Gallery in Tipp City, and the 2nd Street Public Market in Dayton.

Our Music Director is Mr. Richard Baker, who is assisted by assistant directors Bob Moore and Brian Phillips. Our Chapter’s President is Nathan Walters. The Miami-Shelby Chapter of The Barbershop Harmony Society has an annual show in the fall at Troy High School.
ROCK ISLAND PLOW CO. This Bluegrass group was formed in 2004 with a group of veteran musicians. Each member has an extensive musical background which includes rock-n-roll, country and bluegrass music. This variety of talent has formed a strong foundation for the highenergy technical music that they play together today. With a strong commitment for maintaining the classic bluegrass style performed by Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe in the early days of bluegrass, coupled with the interest in newer bluegrass music written for today’s audience. The group strives to revitalize listeners to those songs which may have been forgotten since the early days of bluegrass, and make them once again the favorites of fans as they were in former days. At the same time, they respect where bluegrass is today and perform favorites from such groups as The Lonesome River Band and Country Gentlemen.

THE KATE HASTING BAND
A career in Country Music didn’t even seem like a possibility for aspiring artist, Kate Hasting. Growing up in the small town of New Carlisle, Ohio, Kate had always been active in any type of performing the community had to offer—but the bright lights of Nashville seemed just a little too far out of reach. “Most people around here stay around here. Why wouldn’t they? This area has everything you need. I love the small town feeling of knowing my way around and knowing everyone,” Kate reflects, “I guess the thought of leaving New Carlisle or my family to further my love for writing and singing seemed a little far-fetched”.
The music of HigginsMadewell is a combination of strong vocals, acoustic guitar and heartfelt original lyrics that is difficult to classify as one specific genre. Their original music, for example, ranges from the country sound of their very popular "Like a Stone" and "Little Things" to the bluesy/folky sounds of "Livin Blue" and "Voice For the Children." Their music appeals to a broad range of people and their fan base spans from teens to retirees. Their stage compatibility and humor is often compared to Johnny Cash and June Carter. Both artists have dedicated their careers to music, have a broad background of musical experience, and in previous bands have opened for national acts including The Plain White T's, Rick Derringer, Firehouse, The Tubes, XYZ, Shotgun Messiah, Baton Rouge, Lillian Axe, White Trash, Hurricane, and Metal Church. Their influences include AC/DC, Sheryl Crow, Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Beth Hart. This may sound like a strange combination, but once you've seen them perform it makes perfect sense! Their versatility, professionalism, dedication and genuine love for the audience are very apparent. Erin Higgins' incredible vocal range allows her to cover everything from the low register of Billy Joel's "Piano Man" to Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" and Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child o' Mine," then seamlessly flow into a performance of "Me & Bobby McGee" that will leave you stunned. In addition she plays acoustic guitar and harmonica (she is also quite the fiddler/violinist!). She's been performing live for more than 15 years. Jeff Madewell has performed in live bands since the age of 16. After winning a battle with Cancer and the loss of the majority of his vision at 19, he dedicated himself solely to music and the music industry. He managed several of his former bands including "Madewell," who opened for national acts, received radio airplay and traveled and performed at a multi-state level. He recorded and produced the Higgins-Madewell CD "Spider Bite" at his production studio as well as his former band Love Junkie's CD "Is This Us?." Both are solid evidence of his musical skill and understanding, and his commitment to quality sounding music. Their new CD, Sweet Medicine, released May 14, 2011 at Hobart Arena in Troy, OH, is currently seeing a lot of success both at a local and national level.
MIKE HEMMELGARN Mike has been fascinated with the art of ventriloquism since the age of eight and juggling since the age of sixteen. He went door-to-door selling newspaper subscriptions to earn enough money to purchase his first "dummy", a hard wood puppet named "Bob". Bob is now in retirement and Mike uses mostly sculpted foam and latex puppets. He first learned to juggle with tennis balls and has evolved to bowling balls, knives, machetes, torches and other ridiculous things! Finally, magic and balloon sculpting were incorporated to compliment one of the most unique acts in the business. Since graduating from Wright-State University in Dayton, OH. Mike has performed at thousands of Corporate Events, Schools, Libraries, Fairs & Festivals, and Theatres. Mike, his lovely (and very fortunate) wife, and three children happily reside in Springboro, OH.

Among the many extraordinary things about Hunter Hayes, the multi-talented musician, writer, producer and performer, perhaps what is most astonishing is that in truth, he’s just getting started. And it is that fact which holds the promise of Hunter Hayes becoming one of the most significant musical talents to emerge, not just from Nashville, but from anywhere, in a long, long time. Already, he has accomplishments beyond most musicians wildest dreams: Singing “Jambalaya” with Hank Williams Jr. in front of 200,000 people (15 million YouTube views) at the age of four; appearing with Robert Duvall (who gave Hunter his first guitar) in “The Apostle” at the age of six; playing with Johnny and June Cash, and Charlie Daniels at a BBQ; performing for President Clinton and many more. You might say that he’s lived a charmed life. But those experiences are simply the natural result of Hunter’s prodigal talent, one that’s been there from the beginning as though a gift from God, and one that he’s always conscious to be in service to. Having moved to Nashville three years ago, Hunter was quickly signed to Universal Music Publishing Group where he has co-written songs for Rascal Flatts and Montgomery Gentry. At the same time, he was introduced to Atlantic Records’ Chairman/CEO and music visionary Craig Kallman, who he signed with at Atlantic Records.“I’m blessed to be surrounded by people who appreciate music and support what I do.” Born in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, Hunter has been making music since about the time he learned to walk. As he recounts, “By the time I was almost two, I was picking up everything and making an instrument out of it. My grandmother gave me a toy accordion for my second birthday and I immediately began picking up Cajun songs by ear from the radio.” While both of Hunter’s parents are music lovers, neither are musicians, so as he says, “The way I picked up music was out of left field, but, I suppose, a pleasant surprise for them.” For the Hayes’, most Friday night’s in the early part of Hunter’s childhood were spent at a Cajun restaurant a couple of blocks from their home that featured live music, and it was there where Hunter joined his first band at the age of four, first as the accordionist, and then as the front man at the age of five.
Taking up guitar at the age of 6, Hunter’s ability to pick up instruments (including bass guitar, drums, keyboards, and more) became evident. He says, “I’ve never had the patience to sit down and learn from anyone. So with the guitar, and with every subsequent instrument and piece of studio equipment, it’s been a process of experimentation – pressing every button I can.” Songwriting, too, has been a constant undertaking of Hunter’s. “I wrote my first song at 6,” he recalls, “I spent every day with the guitar and I just made up songs.” Hunter’s songwriting has been informed by an eclectic grouping of influences. “When I was really young, Garth Brooks was enormous, and I was a huge fan. I always loved LeAnn Rimes and especially Clint Black for his soulfulness. As I’ve gotten older, my influences have broadened – John Mayer, Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Beatles – all of these artists have somehow been a part of my development as a songwriter.” Like playing and songwriting, performing has become almost second nature to Hunter who, in just his short life, has shared the stage with the likes of Taylor Swift, Hank Williams, Jr., Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum . “I’ve been doing at least thirty dates a year for the past fifteen years. I’ve done a lot of the festivals several times and built up relationships with the people that go every year.” Now Hunter, in the producer’s chair with Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins) releases his self-titled Atlantic Records debut album. “I’ve released independent records before, but this feels like the first real record – with the high stakes,” he says excitedly. For Hunter, even with those high stakes, he was committed to doing it his way – “playing everything on the album, having fun and experimenting,” he stops, and then says with a smile, “I literally lived in the studio.” The expectations may be high, but no one has set higher expectations and ambitions for his music than
Hunter himself. He declares, “I hope people half my age and twice my age will listen to my music – I want it to live forever and for my audience to feel like they have a friend in my music.” He continues, “Music is a spirit. It heals. It’s an amazing thing to be loved and appreciated, and sometimes, music has not just been my best friend, it’s been my only friend.” In 2011, Hunter released his debut album, toured with superstar Taylor Swift, kicked-off his first ever headlining tour, made his national network television debut on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and made his Grand Ole Opry debut. The world at large now has the opportunity to see this prodigiously talented artist, a young man who respects the gift his talent is, and has already learned how to give it the honor it commands. He says, “I’ve been lucky as a kid. I’ve met some of the greats, and whether it’s Johnny and June (Cash), Charlie Daniels or Brad Paisley, you could sense they were in it for the love of the music. That was the thing I took away from every single one of those people.” “I don’t know if I’m worthy of being considered of ‘carrying the torch,’ but I would love to be told that by somebody someday. A lot of the decisions I make are from answering the question ‘are we doing it for the right reasons?’ I want people to say about me, ‘I know he’s making music because he loves it.’”

GRANGE EXHIBITS Granges of Miami County will make displays in the Horticulture building. These displays will highlight the Grange heritage, as well as contest and community service projects throughout the past year. The Miami County Pomona Grange has provided 70 wooden benches distributed around the fairgrounds. These benches provide rest and relaxation to fairgoers and display advertisements of local businesses in the county. The proceeds from this project support a $500 Miami County Grange scholarship. Since 1982 this is given annually to a Miami County high school senior attending college to study agriculture. The Miami County Pomona Grange along with the Miami County Farm Bureau has operated the Dairy Bar during the fair since the mid 1950’s to promote dairy products including great shakes, malts and milk. For more information about the grange or any of its projects, contact Mike Russell, Deputy Master of Miami County Granges at 937-541-1849.

Examples: glycerinated and
48 — 2012 Miami County Fair Premium List
MIAMI COUNTY FLOWER SHOW skeletonized material, weathered wood, driftwood, and dried branches. 3. Line-Mass: An arrangement in which line and mass are important to the design. This is the design we see most frequently in American traditional design. 4. Mass Arrangement: Arrangements in which a large mass of flowers is emphasized rather than the individual flower heads. It always has a fullness and minimum voids. Mass arrangements may be traditional or modern. 5. Modern: A departure from traditional and historic period pieces. Modern designs include abstract and free style using bold lines and forms. 6. Oriental Manner: These designs do not follow the strict patterns of traditional oriental arrangements, but still possess a clearly defined asymmetrical triangle and restrained simplicity. The linear design is very important and the design must be three-dimensional with height, width, and depth, following the tri-dimensional placement of Heaven, Man and Earth lines. 7. Miniature and Small Arrangements: Proportion and scale are the most important principles of design to be considered. No single flower should be larger than onethird of the size of the container. The height of the container should be one-third the height of the arrangement. 8. Traditional: Classified as line, mass, and massed-line arrangement, with geometric pattern. Line mass can be vertical, horizontal, crescent, Hogarth curve, or asymmetrical triangle. 9. Rhythm: It is the feeling of motion enabling the eye to travel easily through all the details of the design. Rhythm can be achieved by curving lines, graduation of size and color values, or repetition of line, form, and color. 10. Showing Water: This can be an Oriental-manner-type design or one with a bowl of water that shows some of the surface or a clear bowl that shows water through the sides. It does not mean you can see the water line in a clear vase. 11. Underwater Arrangement: An underwater design is a creative design, with part or parts placed underwater to create interest. Water magnifies the mate-
rials, creating an element of interest and surprise, so scale must be given consideration when selecting plant materials. Artistic Design Descriptions Pictures and descriptions can be found on the OAGC website: and in the OAGC Exhibitors’ and Judges’ Handbook. 1. Creative Vertical: A creative line or line-mass design in which the dominant thrust is vertical. There may be more than one point of emergence and more than one focal area if it does not destroy the vertical thrust. 2. Dried Design: This design may be traditional or creative. The design should be free of dust, tears, mildew and blemishes. Dried materials are plant materials that were living at one time and now dried by various methods. Dried material may not be artificially colored in traditional designs. 3. Illuminary: A creative design incorporating light(s) as one of the components. The lighting must be an integral part of the design, not something added for the sole purpose of including lights. Mechanics of special lighting, such as wires, batteries, etc….must be concealed or be an integral part of the design. Emphasis is placed on color, pattern and balance. Design may or may not be abstract. 4. Miniature Designs: Small scale designs in which the schedule states the size. A miniature design is not to exceed 5 or 3 inches in any one direction (check the schedule for size). Emphasis is on simplicity of numbers, kinds of materials and use of color. A bloom should be no larger than 1/3 the size of the container or 1/3 the size of the design. 5. Showing Motion: A design showing motion uses curves of line material, placement of flowers and/or foliage to provide a feeling of movement. The design can be traditional or creative depending upon the design elements and principles used in the formation of the design. Circles sometime imply motion especially if they are not static. Diagonal lines can appear as movement in some cases. Actual movement within the design can also show motion, as a mobile. 6. Showing Water: A design that shows water can be traditional or creative. The water can be open, as in an oriental design, or within a container, as
in an underwater design. 7. Spiral Design: A creative design with a spiral coming down and around a strong vertical axis and anchored into a container, with plant material added within the confines of the spiral to enhance it. The container should be vertical to establish the line. The spiraling portion may be of plant or man-made material. The spiral penetrates space. The flowers or other plant material should be kept low and must be inside the spiral and not overpowering it. DO NOT add more plant material onto the spiral other than the original. The designer could anchor the spiral into the container or leave it out to penetrate space. 8. Two Container Design: May be traditional or creative. Would follow the traditional rules of placement. The containers would be similar and linked by the choice of flower, foliage and line materials used. The individual designs require the other to be complete. Creative two container designs might include satellitic or stretch designs. A satellitic design is a creative design with a smaller design of the same color, form and/or texture placed near its base, having a curving connective line that becomes a vital part of its rhythmic pattern.The main, or large design, should be placed in a tall, creative container with the dominance of plant materials rising from the top of the container. The connecting line of plant or man-made material MUST be placed IN OR NEAR the container’s top, extending down in a CURVING line to a smaller container or object placed near the base of the main design. A stretch design is a creative design using two similar containers where one is smaller and appears to have been pulled away from the other by tension using a connective line of STRAIGHT line material. 9. Vertical: A design with an overall appearance of power and strength. The vertical style most often requires a focal point either near the top of the arrangement or the rim. In a true vertical design, the materials used will remain within the width of the container and very seldom will it extend beyond the sides. The finished product will be a tall floral arrangement. A vertical arrangement is one that carries the eye top to bottom like a column. It can be compact or wider, but the concept is that the eye travels up and down and not side to side.
