(CNBNews.net) UPDATE: The wind knocked the tree down around 2 AM Sunday morning. Mr. Stecklair along with several other neighbors were working on removing the tree from the street when the photo was taken. Later in the morning the City Highway Department was on the scene to haul the branches away. The street is now opened.
For the record, Mr. Stecklair was NOT being paid by the taxpayers for his work on the fallen tree. We apologize for giving anyone that impression. We were trying to put a little humor into the article. Apparently, from the comment received on this post, we failed. -Bill Cleary
