Front Porch Profile - Roger Rhonemus
ROGER RHONEMUS - ADAMS COUNTY COMMISSIONER, FARMER
What is your favorite movie?
Quigley Down Under or The Longest Yard.
Where is the most interesting place you've traveled?
I have never been to a bad state, never been to a bad place. Probably one of my favorites is Denver, Colorado.
What is your favorite Elvis Presley song?
How Great Thou Art.
What character from a book would you be?
Though non-fiction, I would say Captain McNelly from The Real Book About the Texas Rangers, a book I read as a kid.
Cats or dogs?
What quote best defines how you live your life?
People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
Winter, spring, summer or fall?
That's why I love living where we live because I like them all, but I would say spring because I love to plant.
Regular or decaf?
What is the thing you love most about your community?
I think it's the caring attitude. If someone has a need, there's always someone there to help. It crosses backgrounds. I've been on the receiving and hopefully on the giving end.
What is one of the funniest things a kid has said to you?
There were some third graders at the courthouse recently and I was giving them a tour. I asked them how old I was. One little boy said 25. (I'm 53.) I told him to remind me to give him a quarter when we were done. That little rascal came up at the end and asked for his quarter and I had to give it to him. I'm glad I didn't tell him I'd give him $10.
