This Month’s KNUJ, SAM 107-3, and New Ulm Hy-Vee’s Hometown Hero has been announced. Two linemen with Sleepy Eye Public Utilities, Jose Saenz and Tom Hillesheim are being recognized for joining colleagues in traveling to areas of the United States affected by Hurricane Dorian to help with damage to power lines. They drove a Sleepy Eye bucket truck in a caravan of line workers and trucks from communities throughout Minnesota, including: Sleepy Eye, St. James, Glencoe, and Marshall. In 2017, Saenz spent over two weeks in Florida restoring power after Hurricane Irma. Congratulations to this month’s hometown heroes, Jose Saenz and Tom Hillesheim!
