It’s the kind of work convicts once did on chain gangs.
Getting dirty is guaranteed.
A group of local retirees relish the opportunity to experience much of the same hard work chain gangs experienced, even sometimes smashing a few rocks.
The group gathers Wednesday mornings and arm themselves with rakes, sling blades, cross cut saws, double bit axes, mauls and shovels. The same tools chain gangs became intimately familiar with. But no ball and chain holds this crowd together. They can go home anytime they want.
