When someone's a roofer, plumber, or carpenter, some negative stereotypes come out of it. So, local handyman Tyrone Bridges decided to change all of that. In fact, he wanted to show young people that good values can come out of an honest day's work. In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," Bridges talks about his mentoring program with WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg. Plus, we hear from members of the Snowdon family and their friend Jared Taylor, who benefited from Bridges's guidance.
