Lift baskets, staircases and steel were sold at discount prices Friday at a factory sale held by stair-manufacturer Duvinage in Hagerstown. Excess products and items the company was not using at its location at 60 W. Oak Ridge Drive were available for sale. “We have a variety of components and various odds and ends that have been in the shop for many years,” Duvinage President Bob Maruszewski said. “They might be discounted 50 or 60 percent from their original cost.” Maruszewski said the excess inventory sale was due to the company's purchase of an Ohio stair manufacturer, Sharon Stairs, in 2012 and the transfer of its equipment.

No doubt political apathy is on the rise. More people seem to be avoiding politics and not voting these days. Maybe we should send a committee out to Ohio to study the voting patterns of that state. Perhaps there's a fix. Although I didn't read this in Leonard Pitts' column, I did come across some news that suggested that some 19 people in Hamilton County, Ohio, cast more than one vote for their candidate of choice. One specific poll worker might have cast some six votes for President Obama.

A Waynesboro man accused of fatally shooting his wife and two other people Friday in Quincy Township, Pa., is expected to return to Pennsylvania next week to face criminal homicide charges. Franklin County (Pa.) Sheriff Dane Anthony said two deputies will transport Kevin M. Cleeves, 35, from Mahoning County, Ohio, to the Franklin County Jail in a van early next week. He said all paperwork and authorizations are in place after Cleeves waived his right to fight extradition. Prosecutors said Cleeves will be arraigned soon after his arrival in Pennsylvania.
