The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is volunteering its services for electrical work inside the building.


Hmmmmmm........ :idea: Me thinks I should touch base with Local 129 and see if they could use a hand with that volunteer work out there.

Thanks for that link Barry. I've seen that light once, and helping them out with something I actually do for a living would be pretty cool. I helped out roughing in a Habitat for Humanity house almost exactly a year ago and had a lot more fun working all day for free than I usually do when getting paid. Come to think of it I worked with 3 Local 129 hands on a powerhouse in NW Illinois a couple years ago. That might be the logical first call.

By going to The Morning Journal site, advertisements disappear and the image of the flag is shown ...

Image

-- The swallowtail design is patterned upon and proudly imitates the unique ''Ohio Burgee,'' the flag of the state of Ohio.

-- The blue semi-circle represents the blue sky over Lake Erie. It is outlined in gold, representing the light generated by our fourth order Fresnel lens which shines upon our roads and waterways represented by the red and white stripes.

-- The top red stripe represents the state of Ohio, the middle stripe represents the city of Lorain and the lower stripe represents the Lorain lighthouse, the famous ''Jewel of the Port.''

-- Lorain County is represented by the outline of the lighthouse official logo. The star shines above the lighthouse and locates its position on Lake Erie
