Circus protest

Jill Reinke, Nancy Kline and Kari Olinger protest the Carden Super Spectacular Circus Thursday at the Bay Area Civic Center in Ashland. Olinger cited allegations of animal abuse made against the circus, saying, “Our community is better than this.” The women were among 10 protesters lining Third Street in front of the center, where the circus was to perform at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The group of community members, which sometimes swelled to as many as 16 people, launched the protest before the first show and planned to stay until after the second performance started.
