From immigrant to successful business owner, Ingeborg “Inge” Kelleher has fulfilled her version of the American dream in Plymouth, Mass. Inge was born in Straubing, Germany and moved to Zephyrhills, Fla., at age 15 without knowing one world of English. Despite this, she was able to obtain a position in a dental office as a dental assistant years later. Around this time she met her husband James Kelleher. James had emigrated from Ennistymon, Ireland years earlier. Raised on a farm, he settled in a home in Cedarville, Emerald crews cut and place more than 450,000 cu. yd. (344,049.7 cu Mass., and started his own small hobby m) of onsite material to prepare the Sysco site in Plympton, Mass., for an 850,000 sq. ft.

Kelleher saw an purchase, Inge’s boss decided to open a side business International 500 shovel dozer in a neighbor’s lawn, and constructing homes. asked if he could take over the payments.

N.H. Towns Face Tough Choices Over Aging Bridges By Morgan True ASSOCIATED PRESS
FRANCESTOWN, N.H. (AP) Traffic flows through Francestown on a narrow road with patches of cracked asphalt and a notorious blind left at one end, leaving Jim Howe and his wife, who live on the road, feeling as though they’re playing “some horrible video game’’ every time they pull out of their driveway. The closing of two nearby bridges created the detour. They’re among nearly 500 bridges across New Hampshire that are deteriorating, including some built more than 100 years ago that are still in use, according to state Department of Transportation data. But money to pay for repairs over the next decade is already spoken for, leaving towns not on the list with the tough choice of whether to pay for bridge repairs themselves, or close their bridges and wait for state money. “Municipal bridges are the time bombs in our infrastructure system,’’ said Rep. David Campbell of Nashua, chairman of the House Public Works and Highway Committee. Twenty-four cities and towns have four or more bridges that are deficient in some way. Since 2009, the state has recommended closing 38 bridges. Each closure sends a ripple effect through the community, endangering and inconveniencing residents, constricting the local economy and straining budgets. “The whole state is in the same condition,’’ town Road Agent Gary Paige said, standing on one of the closed bridges

in Francestown. “We’re bridge-poor.’’ In Francestown, voters decided at a town meeting that a temporary fix of reopening one lane on the larger of the two closed bridges is preferable to waiting for state aid to replace it — even if it means more than doubling a property tax increase. After more than two hours of debate, those fed up with the closures prevailed over those preaching patience, who argued the town could wait roughly 16 months for state aid to replace the bridge altogether. The temporary fix is likely to cost $70,000, a significant increase to a budget of close to $1.5 million. It was likely the first salvo in what could become routine fare at town meeting in Francestown. Eight of the town’s 14 bridges are listed as deficient, but only four are eligible for state aid. At the next scheduled inspection, town officials worry they might learn more bridges need to be closed. “All of these bridges that are in the program are critical to these towns and have a direct impact on resident’s lives,’’ Campbell said. But getting state aid is a questionable prospect. Municipalities can apply for state assistance to repair or replace deficient bridges through the Department of Transportation’s bridge aid program. Proposals that get accepted are funded on a first-come, first-serve basis, and the state pays 80 percent. The project queue already stretches into the next decade. Bridge repairs are paid for through the state highway fund,

New Hampshire’s Oldest Bridges Nearly 500 bridges across New Hampshire are deteriorating, according to state Department of Transportation data, and 24 cities and towns have four or more bridges that are deficient in some way. The oldest bridges, where they’re located and what year they were built: • Bridge Road over Blackwater River, Andover, 1882 • Gleason Falls Road over Beards Brook, Hillsborough, 1900 • Gleason Falls Road over Beards Brook, Hillsborough, 1900 • Beard Road over Beards Brook, Hillsborough, 1900 • Jones Road over Beards Brook, Hillsborough, 1900 • Brook Road over Salmon Brook, Sanbornton, 1900 • Tilton Bridge Road over Salmon Brook, Sanbornton, 1900 • Plummer Road over Hermit Brook, Sanbornton, 1900 • Huse Road over Brook, Sanbornton, 1900 • Lashua Road over Mascoma River, Canaan, 1900 • Powers Road over Blood Brook, Temple, 1920 • Spring Street over Beaver Brook, Keene, 1923 • Beaver Street over Beaver Brook, Keene, 1923 • George Street over Beaver Brook, Keene, 1923
which has run a deficit for nearly 10 years. Costs have ballooned because of the skyrocketing price of materials and equipment coupled with dwindling gas tax revenues due to more fuel-efficient vehicles. The legislature has used a series of budgetary patches to shore up the highway fund’s deficit, including selling bonds on highway obligations and temporarily raising the Registry of Motor Vehicles surcharge. Most recently, lawmakers sold a stretch of Interstate 95 to the Bureau of Turnpikes. The $120 million was supposed to be paid over 20 years, but the lion’s share is already spent, with the remainder included in the two-year budget that starts in July. “If something happens [to a bridge], there’s just no money to fix them,’’ Campbell said. The two primary revenue options being considered by lawmakers to bolster the highway fund are deeply politicized. One is a House proposal, backed by Campbell, to phase in increases of taxes on gas and diesel. Members of the Republican-controlled Senate have declared such a proposal dead on arrival. The other option is to legalize casino gambling and funnel a portion of the tax revenue into the highway fund. The Senate passed a gambling bill allowing one casino, 5,000 video slots and 150 table games. Gov. Maggie Hassan has thrown her support behind the Senate gambling bill, but it faces a difficult test in the House, which has never approved video slots. During the bridge debate in Francestown, Mark Pitman came out as a reluctant supporter of a temporary fix. “Whether the bridge is a smart expenditure or a bad expenditure, I don’t know,’’ he told fellow residents, “but we’d be taking our future in our own hands and not expecting the state to come up with money.’’ (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

MCM, CIC Regional Crane Rodeo Scheduled for June On June 27, Cranes 101 and Wood’s CRW Corp. will kick off the MCM & CIC Crane Operator Rodeo regional qualifying events in North Oxford, Mass. The organizations have planned a variety of activities, special guests and vendors during the event while crane operators from the area compete for the top score during the skills competition. The MCM & CIC Crane Operator Rodeo, now in its third year, was developed by publisher Maximum Capacity Media and Crane Institute Certification, a nationally accredited crane operator certification provider, to underscore the need for safe crane operation, which can only be achieved through training and experience. “Crane operation is no longer a job. It’s a profession. The complexity of cranes requires a broad spectrum of higher mental and physical abilities of a specifically trained professional,” said Jay Sturm, president of Cranes 101, a division of the Sturm Corporation. “I’m concerned that the general public may not understand the level of professionalism that is required by the workers in this industry. To that end, I hope that events like these will educate the public about what it takes to safely operate cranes.” For the Massachusetts regional event, IUOE Local 4 will supply a crane simulator for operators to prepare for the competition, as well as allow attendees to sit in a crane cab and operate a virtual crane. Additionally, Cranes 101 and Wood’s CRW plan to hire a deejay for the rodeo, hand out crane industry gear and raffle off prizes. While the focus of the event is the crane operator competition, area technical students and the local community are invited to come watch. Jennifer Sturm, operations manager of Cranes 101, said the top two winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to ConExpo to compete in the national championship, and the third-place winner will receive crane models donated from industry manufacturers. The top two winners also will receive prizes from Crane Institute Certification. Vendors at the regional qualifying rodeo will include representatives from National Crane, Link-Belt and I&I Sling. To compete, the operator registration fee is $30. A portion of the proceeds collected
will be donated to the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge charity. Cranes 101, a division of the Sturm Corporation, is a construction and general safety learning center that offers training classes, OSHA 10-hour and OSHA 30-hour, and signalperson and rigger training. Cranes 101 is an authorized testing provider for CIC nationally accredited crane operator certification programs. Jay Sturm, president of Sturm Corp., and John Duff, Cranes 101 safety trainer, are both CIC practical exam-

iners and will serve as judges for this regional event. Cranes 101’s event partner, Wood’s CRW Corp., is a customer-service driven heavy construction equipment distributor, which operates three equipment divisions with a focus on assisting customers in their purchasing or leasing decisions, evaluating customer trade-ins, and determining equipment maintenance cost, equipment applications, and rate structures. Both companies are hosting and sponsoring the regional qualifying rodeo to extend the MCM & CIC Crane Operator Rodeo’s mission of increasing awareness of safe crane operation, raising the stature and visibility of crane operation as a profession, and recognizing operators for achieving skills required to be successful in the crane and rigging industries. Other regional qualifying rodeos are scheduled to take place in Syracuse, N.Y.; Chicago, Ill.; Lindale, Alberta; Woodland, Wash.; San Diego, Calif.; Houston, Texas; and Orlando, Fla.

Natale Concrete Faces Challenges at Coast Guard Academy We hear about many interesting jobs our customers perform during the course of a year. We don’t often however, get a chance to report a story from as unique a place as the United States Coast Guard Academy. Founded in 1876 and located in New London, Conn., since 1910, the Academy’s streets recently required major renovations. Like many rehab projects, the streets had to remain open for Academy traffic at all times. With only 300 ft. (100 m) sections open at a time, campus buildings crowding the streets, and both foot and vehicular traffic constantly passing, the job was a logistical nightmare and one few contractors would want to tackle. A job as difficult as this one would be difficult for any curb professional, much less a contractor pouring his first job with a slip-form machine. Nick Natale’s rebuilt 5700-Super-B is perfect for pouring in tight spaces. Equipped with a reconditioned Power Curber 5700-Super-B, Nick Natale of Natale Concrete Construction took conveyor with high capacity hopper let him the compact job site.

curb, 18 in. (45.7 cm) wide curb and gutter, and 24 in. (61 cm) rollover/mountable curb. Natale quickly found out why the machine came equipped with a Quick Connect mold mount and put it to good use frequently changing molds as he moved from section to section further saving time. The job pushed Natale’s patience as he juggled both job site logistics and learning to operate a new piece of equipment. Terry Duncan, Power Curbers’ regional manager who trained Natale eliminated a lot of that stress. “Terry kept me calm through the whole process. With his experience he’d seen it all and solved every problem that came along.” Natale entered a curb market that has primarily been granite and precast curb in the past. With the quality and production Natale’s brought to the region with slipformed curb, we think he’ll be quite busy, and job sites in Connecticut are going to be ready for the asphalt to go in a lot more quickly.

Maine Businesses Speak Out Against Highway Plan By Glenn Adams ASSOCIATED PRESS
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) Small Maine businesses that are worried a proposed east-west highway would siphon away cross-state traffic that is their lifeline made a stand April 30 in support of six bills aimed at slowing down or killing the $2 billion project. The Transportation Committee’s hearing came a year after the Legislature allocated $300,000 for a feasibility study, which has since been suspended. The bills advanced April 30 include measures to bar the use of public funds for a study by a private firm and to repeal a law calling for a feasibility study on the highway. Other bills direct the Department of Transportation to study the use of existing highways and railroads as options for an east-west transport route, require an independent analysis of the project to be paid for with private funds, bar the use of public land for a privately owned east-west highway, and create a study commission
with members from the proposed highway corridor to oversee further study on an east-west highway. Plans call for a 220-mi. (354 km), fourlane toll highway between Calais and Coburn Gore, which would provide a direct route across the state and connect the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. Project backers say the highway would bring economic benefits, including thousands of construction and maintenance jobs, and provide a direct route to Canadian and Midwestern points for Maine businesses. But opponents say the new highway would draw away traffic on highways including U.S. Routes 1, 2 and 201 and state Route 9, which they now depend on for their businesses. Chuck Peabody, owner of a whitewater rafting company in The Forks, presented a list of 125 businesses opposing the project. Peabody told the committee the names were collected with relative ease within three days. Besides outfitters, businesses represented included landscapers, motels,
restaurants, car sales companies, grocers and a general store, among others. “When you talk to these people and hear what they have to say, they’re universally against it,’’ Peabody said during a news conference before the hearing. He also joined numerous others to testify before the committee in favor of the bills, including former state Conservation Commissioner Patrick McGowan. “Small businesses will have their businesses bypassed, entire communities will be bypassed,’’ said McGowan, adding that Maine already has an east-west highway in Route 2. McGowan, who served in the Legislature from 1980 to 1990, said a number of similar proposals have been presented and rejected since 1937. The latest represents “the single largest destruction of wildlife habitat ever proposed in this state by a private entity,’’ McGowan said. Opponents of the bills urged caution in considering the legislation. Scott Lever of the Associated General Contractors of
Maine warned the bills could have further than anticipated impacts on public and private projects. “It’s our belief that the viability of the project and the state’s approval process for construction projects will be vetted in due course,’’ Lever told the committee. John Melrose of the Maine Better Transportation Association and a former Maine transportation commissioner said his organization was neutral on some bills, but opposed one that would bar the use of private resources for the highway, saying it would be unwise to eliminate from future consideration the notion of privatization in transportation projects. The Maine Municipal Association opposed the bill to set up a commission to study the project. MMA’s Kate Dufour said creating commissions to oversee unpopular developmental proposals in the future “will have a chilling effect on future business development and ingenuity.’’ (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

organic fertilizers, grass seeds, tools, sand and gravel materials and soil products are available. The Kellehers have developed a clear strategy to thrive in challenging economic times. The basis of this strategy is to stay informed of changes in the industry and to keep an open dialogue with everyone involved with the company. This includes attending trade shows such as ConExpo and MASCON. Maintaining relationships with bonding and insurance agents, engineers and architects, vendors, suppliers and the local community are important. “I can say with certainty that these difficult times have made our company much stronger. Coming out of this difficult economy, our company will be more diversified, more financially stable, more skilled and more efficient,” Rory said. “We will have a broader customer base, a larger geographic territory and better reputation coming out of this economic downturn than we did going into it. These hard times have forced us to improve as a company in ways that we wouldn’t have otherwise endeavored to.” Loyal employees are equally important to the company’s success. Emerald currently employs 58 people at its headquarters. Longtime employees include Richard Smith, who retired in 2007 after 26 years of service; Paul Kelleher, site
in construction technology, concrete construction and accounting. She is a licensed real estate broker and an active leader in her community. Emerald Excavating has been certified as a Woman Owned Business Enterprise because of Inge’s ownership and leadership. Her work ethic, commitment to quality, community involvement and expertise are primary factors in the success of Emerald. “My mother’s role as the leader of a successful site-work company resulted from her personal qualities proving invaluable to the business as it grew.

Budget Shortage Threatens Work on Recreational Trail ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) Work is set to resume this year on the first sections of a recreation trail on an abandoned railroad bed that runs 96 mi. from St. Johnsbury to Swanton, but a shortage of money means it’s unclear how much work will get done. The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) began work on the trail in 2007, but the statewide snowmobile organization that agreed to develop a four-season recreation trail had to spend $300,000 and take two years to get the permits needed for construction. Work is expected to begin this season on the two ends of the trail and a middle section in Lamoille County. “So the first thing that we hope to accomplish this summer is the construction of two bridges, one in St. Johnsbury and one in Danville. And then from there we’re going to start the actual construction work on the Morrisville to Cambridge section, which requires the least amount of actual ground work on the trail,’’ Said VAST Executive Director Alexis Nelson. The Lamoille Valley Railroad ceased operations in 1994. The right-of-way is controlled by the state, which charged VAST with turning it into a recreation trail. Project Engineer Alan Robertson said VAST needed to put up some of its own money to qualify for federal money, and the organization’s money is almost gone. VAST’s money was spent on permitting and making emergency storm and flood related repairs. “It’s questionable, right now, whether we’ll get much more trail done before the money runs out,’’ Robertson told Vermont Public Radio. “VAST has had a couple of bad years and they sunk a lot of money into this trail last year after Hurricane Irene and, to a certain extent Hurricane Sandy, and the floods from the spring of 2012. And they’re out of money.’’ VAST’s Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Committee is raising money and VAST is appealing to the federal government to either reimburse the money spent on storm damage, or at least consider that money part of the matching funds needed to free up federal grant money. “Without that ability to recoup the money that we lost on that trail to fix the storm damage, we really don’t have enough funding to go ahead and do the eastern portion of phase one. We have plenty of federal money to do quite a bit more trail, but we don’t have the matching’’ funds, Robertson said.
