Are you planning a Labor Day Trip ? Can I go ?
What a tragedy Tuesday morning. A man lost his life while working on the Bethlehem Highway 127 Bridge. I’ve railed about the lack of progress on this project (it has been going on a long time) but it all just seems moot. Should he have been hooked to the Safety Line ? Should he have been wearing a floatation device ? The answers are obvious but here was a man who came from a another county trying to make a better life for himself and his family. I’ll think about him every time a cross that bridge for a long, long time. A special thanks to Alexander County Deputy Fire Marshall Mark Earle who was part of the search team for almost 13 hours. Mark answered every one of my phone calls or called me right back. Thanks !
