  • Rash of kitchen fires sparks call for safety when using the stove

    Stove fires can create a very scary situation, as well as a costly mistake.

    By Brad Bowman

    Landmark News Service

    Amos and David Troyer’s family want to live the old-fashioned way. Not just because they are Amish, but because they want to keep life simple.

    Buggies frequently travel U.S. 421 and along the back roadways in Henry County. They are just as much a part of our rural landscape as tractors and hay wagons. The Amish are often seen, but, as a people, are not always heard.
