Over the years, Hugh has seen a lot of changes mainly in technology and the rules. He says there are rules and rules, and more rules! One of the things he found most interesting while on the job is hearing all the excuses why people couldn’t pay their electric bills. He could probably write a book about all the reasons he has heard. Hugh retired on December 31, 2012. When asked what he likes best about working for Northwestern Electric, Hugh said “Having a steady job with benefits and meeting all the different customers.” He says he will miss his fellow employees, steady job, not being on call, and being called “grumpy old man” and “older than dirt!”


After he retires, Hugh plans on doing more camping and getting part- time work. His main goal is to catch up on his “honey-do” list. Dickie Goldston started working for Northwestern Electric as an apprentice lineman on August 5, 1974. In November of 1979, he became a journeyman lineman and was promoted to area supervisor in November 2000.


Dickie Goldston


Dickie has seen his fair share of changes over the years. (995631002) He says they used to work more off of the pole, and now it is mostly bucket work. And everything is computerized! Dickie’s last day on the job is January 11, 2013. When asked what he likes best about working for Northwestern Electric, Dickie said “I like the feeling you get when you get the lights back on for ALL the people that are depending on us.” The things he will miss most after he retires are going to work every morning and his fellow employees.


His plans for the future are to travel and just do what he wants to do which includes hunting, fishing and going to the casino.
