MARYSVILLE — The city's 2009 Komatsu PC88 excavator is valued at $115,000, but that didn't stop 3-year-old Wyatt Worthington-Johnson from jerking its controls back and forth like he was playing a video game, even as his toes barely touched the floor. Kids of all ages got yet another chance to grab the steering wheels and honk the horns of the city's utility, police and fire vehicles at the annual Touch-A-Truck at Asbery Field Sept. 13.
