PICKAWAY COUNTY, Ohio — Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff was prepared to push his tenure as the nation's longest-serving sheriff past the half-century mark.
Radcliff, who first was elected sheriff in 1964, had readied his paperwork to run in the March 6 primary. But he changed his mind in recent days after attending the funeral of a retired Circleville police officer.
