Cole's jack-of-all-trades as new manager of Furlong's Grill and Saloon in Ellsworth
For a different job, the construction worker happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Shane Cole had been hired to finish the dance floor and restore some top beams at Furlong's Grill and Saloon in Ellsworth's west business district, he said Thursday. One day while Cole was working on those improvements, he was asked to fill in on the staff, as they were shorthanded.
"I told them if you show me how to run the till, I ought to be able to do it," he said.
