59-Year-Old Gene Workman Looks To his 16th Birthday
Gene Workman reaches his 16th birthday Friday. Gene Workman is 59 years old. You guessed it, He was born on Feb. 29 which comes only every fourth year, Leap Year. His first Feb. 29 was in 1930. You know about the Leap Year. Because the earth travels around the sun don’t quite match the calendar, every fourth years is given an extra day. If it were not so, every few hundred years, give or take a hundred - you’d be digging out of the snow in July. Gene is accustomed to the scarcity of birthdays. He shared his this year with his mother-in-law, Mrs. Ruth St. John last Saturday night in Sparta. She was 77. Brother-in-law, Walter St. John, gave the party. Gene’s wife, Geneva, was born in Sparta. Gene’s grandson, Jason, who lives in Hawaii, was born in Feb. 29 too. They exchange cards on their birthdays. Two of Gene’s schoolmates were Feb. 29th’ers too. They were Berry Ray in Sparta High and Okleah Hunt (Shady Grove Grade). Okleah Hunt now lives in California. He doesn’t know where Betty Ray is. In his younger days, Gene was a good water skier. He was the top of a 3-man pyramid. He couldn’t ski now (but would like to) because of several back operations which caused his retirement as a Lily Tulip maintenance man in Springfield, He can still fish and hunt. Now, he works around his 6-acre place a quarter mile east on Hwy. 14 where he also raised beef cattle, largely for his own use. Gene is w World War II veteran with 27 months overseas, in Africa and Italy. He was a diesel engine mechanic in the Signal Corps. How does he feel now? “Like 59”, he says with a grin.

Ozark Man Electrocuted
Tom Workman of Ozark was electrocuted early Tuesday morning wile apparently removing wire from an REA I utility pole. A call from an area resident complaining of a loss of electrical power sent repair crews looking for the source of power failure sometime around midnight Monday. Arriving at a spot 2 miles south of Ozark on the sale barn road, the repair crew discovered Workman’s body hanging from the wires of a utility pole. Christian County authorities were called to the scene at approximately 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and Workman’s body was removed from the wires. County Coroner Dean Adams stated that death by electrocution was the result of Workman accidentally looping his arm over a live wire.

A pair of wire cutters was found at the scene along with one strand of wire that had already been removed, Workman’s watch, ring and any other valuable he many have been carrying were also missing.
