When Chris Quire took the oath of office a couple of days ago and became Franklin County sheriff, the event was the culmination of a lifelong dream — and a bittersweet moment too.

To focus all his energy and attention on being sheriff, Quire is selling his lawn-service business, something that has been an integral part of his life since he was a young man. In the spring, T.J. and Jessica Wooldridge will take over the care of the 100-or-so lawns Quire has managed.
