'Mr. Sunshine' set to retire
He may not be known for his sunny disposition -- his nickname of 'Mr. Sunshine' is an affectionate tribute to his gruff, man-of-few-words persona -- but Mark Marthaler has nothing but good things to say about his colleagues at the Becker County Highway Department, where he has worked as a mechanic for the past 31 years.
"I'll miss the guys here," says Marthaler, who will be retiring as head mechanic on Feb. 28.
