This is a great story, about George Minnigh.  He is retiring today.  He has been a park ranger for 30 years, and spent many years helping keep up the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Click on the knoxnews.com story on Minnigh below. There is also a short video interview with Minnigh on the site.   I’ve contacted the author of that story to see if I can get in touch with George to have him on an episode of “The GoSmoky.com Radio Show.”
