Keeping the workers fed

Wind farm construction project created a perfect opportunity for a former Marion County man to return to the place he loves.

Russ Stenseng lives in El Dorado but used to operate the Hillsboro Star-Journal and later went into the food service business, owning and operating Big Scoop in Marion, then a grill in El Dorado, and working as a director of dining at two assisted living facilities in El Dorado.

He now is running a food truck at the hub of construction for the Diamond Vista Wind Farm, six miles northeast of Tampa.

“I would like to get back to the Marion of Hillsboro area,” Stenseng said. “I miss it. I love the small-town feel. Both towns are friendly.”

Stenseng said the job was his first big gig with his food truck.

He anticipates being at the throwdown yard of the construction site through the end of the year.
