Give thanks for the people in the yellow and orange-striped pullovers and vests.
The city construction and maintenance employees are everywhere improving the sewer system, creating water runoffs from the streets and maintaining the structure of bridges, shoulders of highways and basically all that needs to be done.
They come from all segments of our society and are always polite and helpful and even apologize when they are in your way. They carry no guns but are able to control and direct people in their most dangerous endeavor, driving a vehicle being stopped or delayed and susceptible to road rage.
God bless those hard workers. They are one of the few parts of our county similar to the citizens of the early family and society standards displayed in that great TV series “Father Knows Best,” a place and time which seems gone forever.
