Longtime Home Township fire chief retiring

When Randy Linton signed up as a junior firefighter at age 17, he had no idea more than four decades later he would be fire chief in his own hometown.

As a youth, he decided to try out firefighting duties in 1971, tagging along with his firefighter uncle and helping burn off old grass in the springtime.
