  • New twist on estate sales
    People accumulate a lot of stuff.
    Especially, when they’ve lived in the same home for many years.
    Sheridan’s Steve and Tammy Rodgers are downsizing. They’ve already sold their 5,000-square-foot tri-level house and barn on six acres on Jerkwater Road.
    But that still leaves a house full of stuff they’ve accumulated in the home where they’ve lived and raised their three children the last 27 years, during their 39 years of marriage.

  • Hamilton County Elections Office administrator Kathy Richardson is disappointed at Tuesday's low voter turnout.
    Of the 187,364 registered voters, only 30,186 voted in Hamilton County. Only 16.11 percent. 
    Better than four years ago? 
    Well, yes. In 2011, the voter turnout was 14 percent.
    "It is just disappointing that the turnout's so low, especially on local races. I believe they affect your area, or your community, as much as the president's race, and 85 percent come out and vote for the president," Richardson said.
