Mike Emore, a fourth-generation Summit County resident, retired June 27 from cel Energy after 30 years with the company.
Emore began work with the company – then known as Public Service Co. – in 1973 and worked his way up the phone pole, from groundman to lineman to working foreman. The Frisco man retired as a gas and electric field operations manager for the mountain division.
