This is an amazing story! Howard Kamarata was a pipe fitter by trade, a home handyman by desire. It was the handyman work that got him in trouble.
Kamarata was at home one day last October, working on an outdoor project. He had solar lights, the kind that sit atop 4-by-4 posts, and he needed extra height. He set up his miter saw — a type of saw that moves on a hinge, up and down through wood. The piece he had was short, and he wanted to cut it into 2-inch sections.
