On each day of May 7th, 8th and 9th, there will be an oversize load, in length and width, entering North Cherry Street at Montgomery Street and traveling north on North Cherry Street to the north corporate limits of the City of Creston on the way to the CIPCO plant.

These loads will be moving very slowly and will cause traffic disruptions.

Residents who park vehicles on North Cherry Street are asked to park off street or on side streets those days.

Danny did an awesome job rescuing two trapped victims in a structure fire we had a couple weeks ago.

A tip of the hard hat to Creston Customer Service Mechanic Danny Gutschenritter. Earlier his month, he came home from work and discovered that his neighbor’s house was on fire. He ran outside to find his neighbor yelling for help out of a window. She said her daughter was trapped in a room on the other side of the house. Danny ran around, threw a brick through the window and helped the young girl out a window as thick black smoke continued to billow out of the house. Then he ran back to help the woman still trapped inside. Once he got them a safe distance away, he went back to the house to turn off the electric and gas service to help the rescue crews that were starting to arrive. "I just got lucky,” Danny says. “God put me in the right place at the right time." #EnergyforGood #PoweringBeyond
