So you've got a refrigerator you suspect Methuselah might have used at some point in his life?  Then utilities across the state of Ohio, including Duke, want to hear from you.  

They've kicked off Ohio's Oldest Refrigerator contest and say they'll pay a $1,250 prize for the state's most ancient fridge or freezer.
