Maintaining the physical plant we all depend on is the job of a lot of
dedicated individuals.  Its not an easy job, and sometimes it can be a
dangerous job.

SHARON, Mass. --A repairman for Verizon Communications Inc. was
electrocuted Sunday morning while fixing a damaged telephone pole in
Sharon, a company official said.
The fire department responded to a report of the worker shocked at about
8:30 a.m. Buckman was transported to a local hospital, where he was
pronounced dead.
