Chester resident Lyle Woodford makes time, in each day of his retirement, to create movement and beauty from discarded scraps of wood.
Looking for a job, he moved to Chester in 1962 and was hired by the Collins Pine Co. Over the next 36 years he worked in the Woods Division, where he performed automotive maintenance and welding on a variety of heavy logging vehicles, both at the mill site and out in the woods.
After 36 years on the job he retired in 1998, but the change of daily location obviously didn’t dim his desire to tinker with a variety of heavy vehicles and tools.
About half of the New Day Broadband cable and Internet users in Quincy have been without service since Sunday.
According to a company spokesperson, the outage is due to a transmission line problem. A technician is scheduled to work on the issue Monday afternoon and restore service as soon as possible.
Already this year, CalFire has responded to nearly 300 wildfires that have charred more than 700 acres, reports the agency. As a result, CalFire officials are reminding residents to ensure they are maintaining 100 feet of defensible space, a reminder that comes several months earlier than normal.
