A different perspective

Sometimes people have to travel around the world before they ever walk into the streets of Yorktown.

Danny Morgan of Denver, Colo., Jerry Gomez of Fontana, Calif., and Jeffrey Pennell of Spokane, Wash. have traveled near and far working for Layne Christensen Company. Layne is a global water management, construction and drilling company. The corporate office is located in Houston. These three are working on the new well near the park.

Morgan said, “It is nice to be able to travel and see the world. I have been to Africa, Afghanistan, Canada, and all over America.”

Gomez recently returned from Ethiopia drilling water wells and Pennell just finished a job in Midland.
