A Personal Sidetrack

With your permission, I want to take a moment to share something that has nothing to do with motorcycles or riding in Ohio. I want to brag about my lil' sister for just a minute.

Almost 30 years ago my lil' sister joined the Newark, Ohio Fire Department. She was one of three women hired that year and the first ever hired by the department. She started out as a paramedic but after about 4 or 5 years transferred to an engine company. She'd done well.

This morning I opened up the local paper and read this story on the front page: Pioneer's Last Day.

She retired from her firefighting job yesterday after 29 years.

Congrats, Lori Lee. I'm proud of you.
