Who's Arthur Winston. Nobody really. He's just a guy who who never called in sick in over seventy years on the job. The only day he ever took off was to bury his wife. Yesterday, he retired on his 100th birthday. His is quite a story and while the nature of his work would have never garnered much attention, the quality of his work certainly has.

After more than three-quarters of a century working for public transit agencies, a bus maintenance worker will retire Wednesday on his 100th birthday.

For decades, Arthur Winston reported to work at a bus yard at the crack of dawn. By 6 a.m. he would be supervising a crew of workers as they cleaned and refueled the region's bus fleet.

But on Tuesday, Winston abandoned his routine and put on a suit, tie and black fedora and headed downtown to meet the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. There, he was lauded for his nearly perfect work record and decades of service with what is currently called the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
