Holiday moods often run the gamut between joy and melancholy. And, an Ohio State University researcher says an individual’s great expectations have a bearing on whether someone smiles or frowns. College of Social Work Professor, Gilbert Greene, says the key is to identify whether stress is likely to help or hurt one’s mood.
Licking County Employee Killed In Tree Cutting Accident
A Licking county employee is dead after a tree crushed him to death during a tree trimming accident Thursday.
The incident reportedly happened while 45-year-old Troy Murphy was trying to remove a tree from a roadway just outside of Granville when a large section twisted in an unusual way and landed on the Newark resident.
A local fire chief says co-workers used heavy equipment to remove the tree and perform CPR, but Murphy was pronounced dead a short time later.
