A crew of young guys were working tearing down the old mill houses in town. As I recall there was a big deal going on then about some million or more straight man-hours of work without a lost time accident at the mill. This was especially big since it served to save some big bucks on insurance money. Well it was at that time that “Lonesome George” Norville stepped on a little nail and refused to continue work. A long series of negotiations ensued with the mill brass, to no avail, until (I heard it said that) George was offered a seat on the board of directors if he would just come back to work. He could just sit down all day long at the mill office and that would be just fine. But George was a stubborn fellow and I guess the mill is still paying that bigger insurance bill over that real sore foot.
