Supervisors honor dedicated employees
By SUE WATSON
The Marshall County Board of Supervisors thanked three retirees with the Road and Bridge Department for their many years of service with plaques of appreciation and food and snacks.
Foreman Jimmy Ash served with the road and bridge crew from August 2, 1988, through June 30, 2010. L.B. Wilkins served from May 9, 2001, through February 10 this year. Foreman James M. Tuggles served with road and bridge for 32 years.
Wilkins and Tuggles were also thanked for sending a son each to work for road and bridge in the family tradition.
Supervisor George Zinn III expressed personal thanks to Tuggles for his quick response to any problem in District 4.
“He’s a swell guy and I am super-pleased,” he said, as Tuggles’ family smiled on their dear father.
Supervisor Willie Flemon called Tuggles a dedicated foreman.
Supervisor Ronnie Joe Bennett spoke on behalf of Jimmy Ash, whom he called “a great guy and a good foreman. We appreciate the great job he did.”
Supervisor Keith Taylor expressed appreciation to all three retirees as a great asset to the county.
“L.B. worked on the paving crew and paved hundreds of miles of county roads,” Taylor said.
County road manager Larry Hall thanked Tuggles and Wilkins for “leaving us sons who may do the job about as well as their dads.”
“We appreciate what you instilled in your kids,” he said.
