KKBN Hard Working Man(06.17.15)



Joey Jacobson
Joey is a ranch hand that wakes up to irrigate and works every day. He’s out when it’s 100 degrees and always hustles. The ranch is dry and there’s no shade to rest in and he’s always willing to roll up his sleeves!

Marc Christie

I would like to nominate my dad, Marc Christie, for the hard working man award. My dad is one of the hardest working people I know. Not only does he own and operate Custom Glass, but he drives a Summerville Elementary school bus, sits on the Soulsbyville Elementary school board, and volunteers with Sierra Bible Church mentoring the youth of our community. Not only does he work hard at all of his jobs, he truly cares about the kids and the people that he comes into contact with. There hasn’t been a time in the past 4 years when I have talked to him on the phone or come home from college and not heard a story of the kids on his bus. When he talks about those kids, you can tell how much he cares for each and every one of them. He treats each of the kids with kindness and respect, brings them treats for the holidays or when they earn student of the month, and is always willing to fill in for a field trip whenever necessary. I believe that my dad deserves this award not only beca!
use he works hard in our community, but he strives to make it a better place to live.

KKBN Hard Working Man (06.03.15)


One of the greatest men I know is Doug Fields. He works hard for his kids including myself (Deanna) Justin Cody and Kaden. He works all week long hard long hours but still makes time to couch baseball and do things with his kids such as rock crawling cooking dinner or answering the phone for one of us kids when ever we need him. Not only is he raising Kaden the best he can but he is always willing to take his grandchildren Darci and William too. I look up to this man my father everyday. I don’t tell him enough how much I am proud of him and that he is doing a great job. This is my dad and I love him for doing the best he can with what he has.

Jim Opie
My Father is the hardest working man I know. He works all day everyday, 7 days a week and rarely takes a day off. This work ethic has been passed down from my grandfather to my father and now resides within my siblings and myself. He makes me want to be the best person that I can be. He is the most caring, and giving person I know. He is constantly on the go; He just goes and goes. Not only is he hardworking, but he has a great attitude, when most people would give up he is always positive. “For life is not easy but you are in charge of your happiness.” He instilled this belief into his children. When asked how he’s doing regardless of what kind of day he’s had his response is always “Awesome.” The women at the bank call him by “Mr. Awesome”. He says this with a huge smile on his face, whether is was good or not. Another famous quote by him is “just another day in paradise.” My dad has always been heavily involved within the community from being a youth s!
occer coach, an Elk (past ER), Saint Mary’s Guild (Treasurer this year), to Chamber of Commerce Member to the Sheriffs Posse. This year he’s not only the Captain of the Sheriff’s posse, but he is again the Parade and Mother Lode Rodeo Dance Chairman. All of which starts this Saturday; and believe me, putting it all together has been a huge task! If that wasn’t enough, he helps take care of his significant other’s father who’s 98 when she’s at work. He clearly loves his community and helping others. Being a small town boy, he’s was brought up to lend a hand where ever you can.  He’s always there for not only his family, friends but our community; at a drop of a hat he will pitch in and help whenever he can. He’s not just  THE HARDEST WORKING MAN I KNOW, HE ALSO HAS THE BIGGEST HEART OF ANYONE I KNOW!

Kele LaNier

I would like to nominate my husband Kele. He is an amazing man, husband, friend and uncle.He works many hours, sometimes 12 hour days, at Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) as the swing shift stacker operator, and than comes home and works on our home remodel and takes care of our 33 animal small ranch. He’s kind, patient and loving to anyone he meets and will always put others first. I couldn’t have asked for a better man to spend the rest of my life with.
