Letter to the Editor for Dec. 12, 2012


Impressed by watching county road workers

I am proud to be Baker City’s biggest advocate.

It seems as though everyone is caught up in the recall and all of the negativity, but I would like to tell everyone how fortunate we are to have Ken Helgerson and the county employees that widened and repaved Lindley Road.

These guys were amazing! I have never witnessed such efficiency and every time one of us residents passed them as they were working they smiled, waved and said hello. We felt like they enjoyed their work and were happy to be working. Our road used to be filled with potholes and was dangerously narrow, not it is awesome. After they finished the paving, they came back and put gravel on the shoulders and in our driveways around the mailboxes, etc. They did this with a dump truck, backhoe and a man with a shovel. They actually did it by leap-frogging each other and alternating driveways. What really impressed me was when I saw Mr. Helgerson, the boss, on the end of the shovel!

I thought no wonder his crew puts out 100 percent — because the boss works hand in hand with them.

We appreciate their hard work and the great job they did.

Not only do we live in the most beautiful place on earth, but God loves us and Christmas is coming. It doesn’t get any better than that.
