  • A windfall for tree removers

    While most people were running for cover during Sunday's violent windstorm, Todd Gammon and his crew were out hauling off tree limbs as they fell down.

    Gammon, who owns Gammon Tree Service, got his first call shortly after noon on Sunday - just as the wind began to gust.

    "As soon as it [the storm] hit, my phone started ringing," he said. "And we worked right through that storm."

    Since Sunday, Gammon and his crew of six have been putting in 13-hour days - working from dawn till dusk - and will likely stay at this pace for at least two more weeks.

  • Goodwill to stop accepting TVs, computers

    Earlier this year, it was announced that all television stations would soon be broadcasting digitally. This effectively put all pure analog sets on the endangered species list.

    With the desirability of these sets severely tarnished, the number of older model TVs lodged at local Goodwill stores grew.

    And with no one wanting to buy these sets, Goodwill soon had a costly problem on its hands. Too many sets and not enough buyers.
