Emile Bergeron splits wood Thursday on his homemade splitter in Lewiston. “I have been burning wood here for 64 years,” the 83-year-old retired paper mill worker said. He and his father built the home he lives in when he was 19. At that time, Emile also built the stove that he’s been burning wood in ever since. “It’s 50% for exercise and 50% because I like to burn wood,” he said. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal
