Company lineman’s ready for his close-up after makeover

It was as if his right leg had been badly twisted out of place. The pain must have been so intense the top of his safety helmet brushed against the electrical line.

That’s what many workers at MLGW’s Administration Building walked by daily as the lineman for the company stood watched over the main road of the lobby.

Graphic artist summer intern Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Wery hated what she saw in the lineman portrayal.  “With his head touching the power line in the display, it was like what not to do,” she said.

With the help of Steve Fury, Joe Burch, Will Gardner and others, the company lineman looks better now. Cassie carefully touched up his face after at least ten years of wear and tear and cleaned his yellow hard hat.  Workers operated on his knee and replaced a worn out bolt, re-laced his boots, tucked in his shirt and soon he was strapped  back on the utility pole like the Wichita Lineman  “searchin’ in the sun for another overload.”
