GENTRY -- Three million work hours without a work-related accident or illness causing a lost day on the job is quite an accomplishment, and no employees at the Flint Creek Power Plant in Gentry have missed a day of work as a result of such an accident or illness for more than 20 years -- since 1996. As a result, the plant and the plant's employees were honored on Feb. 21 with a special award and with a special steak dinner.
