MONROE - For Bill Guinther, retiring as manager from Blain's Farm & Fleet in Monroe means spending more time with his children and grandchildren. "It's time to give someone younger the opportunity to be the manager," he said. Freeport native Guinther, now 68, began working at the store back in September 1971 in the toy and paint sections.
