Thumbs up: We began the week by profiling some workers who toil behind the scenes, unsung heroes representing all those in the workplace who do their job — and do it well — without receiving too much in the way of recognition. We met a farrier named Howard Burnham, who has plenty of patience and a magic touch with horses. We met a stage technician named Molly Prunty, who has gone from intern to a critical component of the various productions at Carroll Arts Center. We met a pair of State's Attorney's Office victim advocates, Katie Ritter and Gabby Butler, an empathetic pair who try to help those who've allegedly been harmed. And we met a do-it-all service specialist named Crystal Hutchins, who keeps the Carroll County Health Department running smoothly. Here's to them, and to all those who simply do their job — day in and down out, week in and week out — without fanfare or the need for acknowledgment.
