I was driving past Weimar Fire Station when I saw a sign out front requesting “Volunteer Firemen Wanted.” Does this mean they have to work for free? I wonder how many fire chiefs work for free? I know a lot of them don’t. I heard one time that go-go dancers and truck drivers would work for free if they were asked to because they like their jobs so well. KNIGHT WAGNER, Colfax
