14 CUMBERLAND OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION Back in the day, said Highway Supt. Frank Stowik, workers would often place signs on trees, but that prac- tice has long since been abandoned because people want to protect the trees. Today, he said, all signs are put on sign posts or telephone poles. Stowik estimates that the Torrey Road sign was likely installed in the early 1980s. He started with Cumberland in 1986, he said, and the sign didn't have anything unusual about it then. "It was readable back then," he said. "I wouldn't want to hit that with a chainsaw." The sign was likely put up at resi- dents' request, he said. TREES From Page 2 BREEZE PHOTOS BY ETHAN SHOREY The "H" in Hope Street is starting to disappear into this tree trunk.
