Mike Martinez steers a limb into the chopper Tuesday morning while cleaning up a downed tree at the Dillon Home in Sterling. Martinez and members of the Ryan Tree Service crew spent much of last week in Morrison cleaning up after the storm that barreled through the Sauk Valley on Monday, then turned their attention to the Sterling Park District.
