Clark: Jail guards earn props, too

I couldn’t be more grateful for the amazing effort that was put in after the recent windstorm by those stalwart utility workers. Avista is even distributing specially made decals to thank the 700 who labored courageously during this once-in-a-lifetime weather event. These heroes deserve all the praise they can get for working round the clock in winter weather, cutting up fallen trees and installing miles of fresh line, new power poles and replacement transformers. But today, I’d also like to also give a thumbs-up to some other members of the local work force, people who will never get a special decal or word of gratitude for what they do/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Do you know any jail guards?
