For nearly 30 years, Jim Shults has been on call as superintendent of the Woodbridge Irrigation District. He not only worked with his hands in the bitter cold and sweltering heat on pumps and pipelines, he also conducted cost analysis on potential projects and determined the other workers' schedules. But after 28 years with the district, Shults officially called it a career Friday.

The 70-year-old was honored at a party at Woodbridge Crossing as coworkers, friends and associates wished him a happy retirement. The Bay Area native coordinated projects such as replacing Woodbridge's old board dam with a state-of-the-art hydraulic dam and fish ladder. He was integral in helping covert parts of the district's system to drip irrigation. He also played a significant role in the Nelson Pipeline project and the replacement of Beaver Siphon.
