ROCKPORT, Ind. — Some think Abraham Lincoln’s dad was lazy.
Steve Haaff disagrees.
His perspective on Thomas Lincoln is perhaps deeper than even a scholar’s. He knows the man by his work.
Haaff, who is a technology education teacher at South Spencer High School, is a devotee of the elder Lincoln’s woodwork. He seeks out Lincoln pieces and then photographs, measures and reproduces them.
“You cannot be lazy and do what this man did,” Haaff said. “This man was a workaholic.”
