Joe Gooding (first from left) stands beside his father, Mike Gooding, who was aided by Huntington City Services personnel on Aug. 17 when he had a health scare while taking out his garbage. Huntington Street Department drivers Scott Wilson and Bill Garrison (fourth and fifth from left, respectively) and summer employee Garrett Caley (not pictured) paused their garbage-collection route and stayed with Gooding until the arrival of medical personnel, who were contacted by City Services Office Manager Kristi Young (third from left). Young, Wilson, Garrison and Caley received a citation from Mayor Brooks Fetters during the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 5, in the Huntington City Building.
