There is still time left in this Labor Day Weekend to do some projects around the home that will increase its value. Here are some of those ideas.

Buying a house can be a great investment, but only if you increase its resale value while you live there. That means exploring which remodels and upgrades are worth the time and effort.

Instead of losing yourself in a sea of home improvement ideas and dreams, evaluate which pursuits come with the highest return on investment (ROI) to ensure you not only improve your space for you and your family but for potential buyers in the future as well.

Horse, cart, some assembly required. Genius Award Winner.

MILTON — A member of the Clinton Township Fire Department was allegedly driving a horse and buggy while intoxicated on May 30 in Watsontown and attempted to bribe an officer into letting him go, according to Watsontown Police Department.

Samuel Lapp Zook, 19, of Green Pine Road, Montgomery was charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and four summary offenses: Two counts of not having proper lighting, and one count each of illegal purchase, consumption, possession or transportation of alcohol; and operating a vehicle as an underage person with alcohol. The charges were filed by Watsontown Patrolman Christopher Snyder in the Milton office of District Judge Michael Diehl.

Snyder reported that he observed the black horse-drawn carriage traveling southbound at 1:46 a.m. May 30 in the 10 block of Main Street without any working front lights or rear flashing red lights commonly used on those vehicles. Due to the violations and concern for the safety of the horse, Snyder said he stopped the carriage driver in the 400 block of Dickson Avenue just south of the entrance to the Watsontown Boat Launch.
