Day #112

Monday, September 11, 2000

The end -- literally -- is in sight now two blocks away from where the crew started this morning.  As you stand on Patterson Street, you can see where the pipe ends on Adams Street to the south.  While optimistic, the crew is not committing to having the project completed this week, but they do believe next week will see the end of the heavy work.  When asked what they plan on doing next, "rest" and "get to my own work" frequently comes up. 

The average age of the crew this summer was 54 years, the oldest being Howard Field at 80 and the youngest, Steve Spiegel, in his early-thirties.       

Bob Elwell helps guide Steven Place into position as the crew prepares to begin today's trenching.  Howard Field stands alongside with the depth measuring rod.   In the background, Alsop Sand Company is delivering a load of sand to resurface the street.

Taken last Wednesday, Larry Stafford operates the backhoe.

"The Barn", a business operated by James Haskins, is a popular place in Formoso.  As is the case with many small towns, The Barn is a hangout for young and old alike and is the only source of food and drink in the community outside the home.
