CURE FOR FALLEN PINE TREES

 

 

— Richard Bolling of Mayking protected his head from flames as he used a leaf blower to encourage wet pine brush and logs to burn. Bolling and his brother-in-law, Gary Fields, were on Thornton Saturday evening cleaning up a mess left behind when four huge pine trees fell when straightline winds of up to 80 miles per hour struck southeastern Kentucky on the night of April 12. Storm damage in Letcher County was so bad that several homes didn’t get electricity back on until a full week later. (Eagle photo)
