  • Upton letter carrier honored for million miles of safe driving

    Bill Wilcox can honestly say he’s worth a million – in miles, that is.

    Wilcox was inducted Friday morning into the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Club — an honor reserved for employees driving 1 million miles, or 30 years, without an at-fault accident. He’s the first letter carrier in Upton to receive the honor.

    “This is a huge accomplishment,” said Officer in Charge Patrick Gray. “He carries a 92-mile route five days a week. That’s a lot of miles to travel every day for 30 years.”

    Hopes of establishing a lithium-ion battery research center and production facility in Glendale lost power Wednesday when federal development dollars went elsewhere.

    The National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Batteries consortium picked the industrial site along Interstate 65 and Kentucky 222. Their announcement in April included the prospect of 2,000 new jobs but was contingent on receiving Department of Energy funding.
