Esky city workers get high marks

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Janis Bell of Escanaba:

“In this day and age of impatience and lost manners, I would like to compliment two Escanaba employees who made my day last Thursday. I was taking out my last bag of garbage to the can on the curb when the city truck arrived seconds before I got there. The driver emptied my can and then signaled to me to put the bag in while he emptied it again. Less than an hour later, I was riding my bike when another city employee waited for me to pass with a wave and a smile. Thank you to these fine employees of our very friendly city.”

Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.

We identify our bouquet recipients in one of two ways: from Daily Press news pages and from nominations sent in by our readers.

Mail us a postcard or letter identifying your nomination and putting into detail what they’ve done. Include your name, address, and phone number. Send nominations to Saturday Bouquets, The Daily Press, 600 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI 49829.

They may also be sent to us by going to our Web site,, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on “Bouquets” and follow the simple instructions.
