Since the first week of July, I’ve been a sidewalk superintendent.
I began learning to be a sidewalk superintendent watching homes being built on Third Street when I was four. There were no sidewalks on that street back then.
My wife likes to kid me that I have outgrown “Tonka” toys but that my enjoyment of big machines remains fast.
I watched as Makkinga Contracting ripped up Second Street East from Central Avenue to Mowat, and then Mowat from Second to Third Street East.
