Bucket Trucks assist in removing Ash Tree

 

At 8 a.m. Monday, city workers and Brown’s Tree Service began cutting down an ash tree in Oakland that was reportedly the largest in Kansas.

Dennis Supple, who lives across the street from the tree’s location in the 400 block of N.E. Kellam, said he once measured the tree at 18 feet in circumference. He didn’t know how old the tree was, but as with anything like that, he said, “it’s kind of sad to see it go.”

Bucket Trucks in History-Freedom 7 Launch

By Ron Caswell, July 27, 1998

Last week a chapter in America’s history ended with the passing of Alan B. Shepard. Besides being the first American into space, the 5th man to walk on the moon, he was truly a great and funnyman. NASA Administrator Dan Golden called Alan one of NASA’s greatest pioneers.

Bill Fegar, a friend of mine, was Alan Shepard’s Astronaut Assistant for his first launch May 5th, 1961. If you ever see a picture of this launch, there is a bucket truck parked near the Redstone rocket. In an emergency there would not be enough time to roll the Launch Gantry back to the spacecraft to rescue Alan. Bill Fegar would get out of the armored vehicle (tank) he was in, run over to the bucket truck, and take the bucket up to the capsule for the rescue. Bill said the government would have paid his family $50,000.00 if he got killed in the launch which they thought was big money back them. Bill said they didn’t realize it at the time but they were parked too close to the launch pad. He said that armored vehicle was really shaking during launch!
