Spotlight on the Franklin Sign Plant - page 2

Lee Blackman started as a correctional officer at Triangle and has been with Prison Industries for six years. He is in charge of shipping signs all over the state. When machines break down, Clarence Finch is there to fix them. He has done this kind of work all his life, six for Enterprises. Sign edges are rounded off under the careful supervision of Bill Shorts who has worked 20 years for DOC, 10 at the sign plant. Joel Leggett swears he just makes the signs, he's not Betty Beam. Legget works in several sections-fabrication, poack-outs and the shearing department. he is filling in at the Gravopoly section (what nameplates are made of). Manager Danny Stanley said he is never without a smile.
