REG fair16p 081602 B August 16, 2002-- Riding the Merry-Go-Round wasn't as fun as it looked for Mamie Opal Hughes, 5. The Lima youngster made it around once before demanding to get off the ride at the Allen County Fair in Lima Friday. Her mother Delores Sowders did convince her to try sitting in the carriage though and that seemed to do the trick as she was all smiles the rest of the way.
