Chilliwack Progress Press Photograph: Paint crew was at work giving city light standards a fresh look last week. Some 50 poles were to be painted. For the first time crew used a "giraffe" piece of equipment for the job. One-man operated machine science news enables painter to rise more than 40 feet into the air to apply coat of paint. "Giraffe" made short work of what used to be a time-consuming task.
