Above and beyond the call of duty: Neither rain, nor sleet nor snow was going to keep Payroll Manager Joleen Mitchell (center) from getting out the Dec. 29, 2000, biweekly payroll. In fact, just the threat of bad weather on the heels of the Dec. 19 snowstorm convinced Mitchell, Payroll Supervisor Janey McNeil (left) and Payroll Coordinator Christina King to spend the night at the Emory Inn on Dec. 21 so they could be sure to make it to their offices to run the payroll on Dec. 22. With the Christmas holidays, approaching the payroll had to be processed on Dec. 22 so there would be time for the biweekly paychecks and direct deposits to be processed by the bank.Mitchell reports they had a nice dinner at the Inn, and McNeil and King then went to the gym for a workout.
