Construction worker helps senior citizen

Thank you to the young construction worker on the McCourtney Road closure. Yesterday, I had an errand in Nevada City that should have taken an hour. Returning home to Polaris Drive at 11 a.m., I found McCourtney closed with a three-hour wait before the road would reopen. I turned around, had lunch and sat it out in the Kmart pharmacy area. Three hours later, the road was still closed. Finally, I caught the attention of a worker who escorted me the short distance to my turnoff. I am 92 and in constant pain with meds at home I had to take. This young man made a miserable experience tolerable. Without his kindness, my only choice would have been to go to the ER at the hospital.
