He ha been teaching sandblasting, stone cutting, fmi h 'or' free-formculpture, stone polishing, and other t hnique for over20 years and in the granite busines nearl: all hi life. Inhis words he has "an incurable disease called QIall.iteassion," and loves what he does. He feel tha to helpthe industry thrive we need more education and a betterunderstanding of how rock becomes its intended form."A number of young workers don't know the ba ic ofow to do carving or sandblasting, and try to rushough the process. You don't achieve a quality productf ou don't learn from the ground up, and that takes timed lots of practice." A sentiment echoed by manya oned tradespeople.The Granite Guy's classes are small and intensive,usually only two or three student . Classes run eighthours a day for five days for an introductory class and thesame for the advanced session. Prior experience is notnecessary, and by the conclusion of the advanced sessionparticipants will be ready to begin working in a planthaving a strong hands-on knowledge of what is involvedin sandblasting, stone cutting, and polishing. "I have hadall kinds of people come here for training, from folks whowant to pursue carving as a hobby, indu try professionals,to one guy who had a particularl tre ful job andwant d a yacation away from it all to work with hishan -. \\"hiling in the trade is helpful, it is in no waya r uir m nt to take anyone of our introductoryo," noted Gary.Businesses looking to train employees, people in theindustry, to the man off the street, all have a place at theGranite Guy Technical Training Center.

ICVV II'" I Cr\VICVV II May We Have A Moment Mr. President?- an interview with GIV's Forrest Rouelle, the new BGA pre ldent1) How long have you been in the granite industry, atyour present job, and what types ofjobs have youheld during your granite career?I have been with GIV since 1973, at first I ran wireaws, diamond saws, and polishing, then moved on toshipping, quoting, and sales. Been VP since 1995.2) What do you see as some of the major changes/developments in this industry during your time ingranite?Our local industry has gotten smaller. Imports arehaving a major impact on our manufacturing. Not a lot ofpeople are entering this industry, putting us in danger of adiminished skilled labor market. We need more welltrained people getting in to this industry. A while ago,we had on-going educational programs that labor participated in on an on-going basis. But as the industrydownsized and labor was readily available, these classesfell by the wayside. Now the abundant workforce hasretired or gone on to other things and we face the samechallenges of the past but without an adequate feedersystem to replace these craftsmen. Youth today doesn'twant to come into a manual labor force like ours. Computers are what draws them and it is a phy ically easierlifestyle.Wages have also increased dramatically. The peoplewho do work here make a good living, the health benefitsare good, and a retirement program is now in place.Probably the thing that has made the biggest impact is themechanization and subsequent advances in technology ofour manufacturing plants. Machines today can do amazing things in record time allowing us to produce morejobs with less manpower and higher yields. The cost ofthat though is the loss of well trained and experiencedtradespeople entering the workforce.3) Do you have other family members who are in thisindustry? If so, who are they and what do they do?My father, Leon, was a stonecutter for most of his life.He passed away two years ago.4) What would you like to see be the BGA'sfocusduring your tenure in the upcoming year?I would like to see the BGA grow. \domen w id a and programs to entice om ormer membersto r turn. We have a good Board and ar '0 king onnew programs. We are collaboratinl!tate andn - beyondoth r ag ncies to get educational co CAD in our area.Th need for affordable, quality healar msurancei defmitely on our front burner but tak - me to sortthrough. We are also looking into wa -- partner betterwith retailers. We welcome any idea: an uggestionsthat people would like to offer to a i t - with thesetopic.5) What are the top three issues ),ou ee facing thefuture of the granite industrylBGA and what needsto be done to address them? JJ7rat would you like tosee change/advance in the next 5110 years?We need to promote oursel e as an association ofcraftsmen. We need to show the con umer that we cancu tomize and personalize their family memorials betterthan anyone in the world. We are presently working onsome promotional ideas that will get that in front of theconsumer. We need to bring more craftsmen into theworld of granite. We need to keep up with modernization and equipment. Lastly, education need to be an ongoing priority with manufacturers and not seen as aluxury item.I C

ITi psTricksFilling A Letter/NumberPoints to keep in mind:n interesting twist to the new rnillenium was theunforseen problem of memorials having the firsttwo digits of the deceased date" 19 " but theyear now is "20 ." Maybe many folks didn ' t think theywould be around to mark the turn of the century, but nowthousands of monuments are having to be repaired toaddress this issue. In this edition of Tips and Tricks, wewill show you how to fill a letter to prep it for re-sandblasting.AaThis is a repair step, and not a brand new cut. It is aninexpensive and time efficient solution to replacingthe whole stone.bThi method works best when the stone is removedfrom the grave site and brought into a shop for repair.c) The tone hould be washed and thoroughly cleanedbefore beginning your repairs.d) Make certain that all the tools you will be using areclean. You do not" ant any residue such as rust ororganic products mixed in with the stone and epoxy.Step 1. Find a smallpiece of stone similarto the one you arerepairing . Ideally, youmay be able to take asample from someinconspicuous placeon the memorial.Crush the stone into aloose powder using aclean hammer.e) Note: The epoxy MAY di color with time. This willdepend upon the type of epoxy you use and theenvironmental conditions the monument will experience. Again, this is an inexpensive alternative toreplacing the stone, but not a perfect solution.Step 5. After therecommended settingtime, test the area forhardness. It should bevery firm and able to bech ipped away likestone .Step 2. Follow thedirections on the epoxycan and mix the stone,epoxy, and hardenertogether in a disposable cup. Onceblended, you . 0 Iyhave a limited amounof time to work.Step 6. From thereremove any excessmixture from the stoneuntil the area is flat.Step 3. Pour it intothe number/letter youneed to fill.Step 7. Blow awaythe dust. Your monument is now ready tobe recut and sandblast.Step 4. All airbubbles will need to beremoved so poke themixture into the holemaking certain it is wellpacked
