Farewell, Bob Stroud
Bob Stroud
Bob Stroud
Bob Stroud retires today after 24 years in the Fermilab Machine Shop. He joined the laboratory in February 1980 as an instrument machinist, and worked his way up to supervisor of the Wilson Hall Machine Shop. "I've worked on a little bit of everything," said Stroud, including just about every project that has come through the shop in the last 24 years.

Stroud and his wife will be moving from their current home in Sandwich to a 40-acre farm near Mount Vernon in southern Illinois. Stroud plans to spend time hunting, fishing and playing with his grandchildren. His nine grandchildren, ages 6 to 20, all live in the Mount Vernon area.

He will also have more time for another hobby--restoring antique tractors. "I've got a 1936 and a 1939 John Deere, and they both need a lot of work," said Stroud. He plans to purchase more, and to put those he's restored to work on the farm.

DOE Declares May 2004 as Electrical Safety Month
Electrical Safety Subcommittee
Fermilab's Electrical Safety Subcommitee (Click on image for larger version.)
In an effort to raise awareness of the unacceptably high rate of electrical safety incidents and near misses that occur at laboratories, the Department of Energy has declared May 2004 as Electrical Safety Month.

According to Beverly Cook, Assistant Secretary of ES&H, two out of every three near misses reported from DOE contractors each week are related to electrical safety. Fermilab's Electrical Safety Subcommittee is working to identify initiatives to raise awareness about this safety concern. Look for the "Safety Tip of the Week," featured every Monday in Fermilab Today, which will be highlighting electrical safety issues during the month of May.
