Mack hangs up the keys to the fire truck
J.R. Mack, a one-time motorcycle cop who traded uniforms to become a firetruck driver, retired Saturday, capping a 45-year career with the city of Grand Forks.
"Let's face it, he served the city for damn near half a century," said Battalion Chief Rod Hadland of the Grand Forks Fire Department. "It's quite an honor, I think, for all of us to have worked with him."
