TELL IT LIKE IT WAS recap
July 30, 2019
The first person interviewed told it like it was. Vic answered questions from a 3 person panel along with the audience. One of the highlights of his career as an electrician was to walk around each of the 3 Labadie Powerplant towers every day until they reached their 600 foot height. (See the photo below.) His "safety harness" consisted of a small strap attached to a pole beside the ladder he climbed up every day. He thought everything was just fine,
His wife added to his story: he told her that he dropped his empty lunch bag down the tower that he was working on.
Several of his boys followed in his steps and became electricians. After Vic retired, he did electrical work at reasonable prices for many of the families in Augusta.
MUCH ADMIRED AND APPRECIATED!
