What was the last good book you read?

I’m reading a series right now by John Jakes, “The Kent Family Chronicles.” There are eight books in the series and an old series. He wrote it in the ’70’s. It’s a saga that starts with the Revolutionary War and goes through, I think, the turn of the century the 1900s.

What do you do in your spare time?

Right now I’m doing a lot with the high school booster club. … I give tours for an organization downtown called Indiana Land Marks. … I’m helping with the Nicaragua Resource Network and it is a Christian, bible-believing organization. But if I just say that I’m not going to do any of my little jobs today and I’m just going to a selfish day, it would be to garden for a little while, then to go sit at a beach or a pool with my favorite book and my iPod.

Do you have a pet?

We have 2 cats. One is named Rascal. And then we have Harry.

What music have you been listening to recently?

Well my favorite thing to listen to is classic rock.

What do you like most about your community?

I think that they’ve done a really good job with, I mean I’ve been very involved in the schools from day one, and I’ve been very happy with our schools and the amount of parental involvement that they encourage and depend on.
