Earlier on Election Day, Sherry Appleton said that no matter what happened in the race for 23rd District state representative, Position 1, she’s appreciated the support she's received during her four terms in office. "I've been very lucky," she said Tuesday before the final ballots were counted. "I've had a very loyal constituency. It's always been my pleasure to represent them." She will have the opportunity to continue representing those she's felt so lucky to serve since 2004.

But her favorite was in Hansville, when an older gentleman asked her if her birthday was on the Fourth of July because “you’re just a firecracker.” “We chatted for a bit. He said, ‘I swore I’d never vote for a Republican, but you put a chink in my armor,’” Simpson recalled.

Take a break and travel back more than 150 years to a time when holiday celebrations were pure and simple.
