Story by Gary Abernathy
What’s the best movie you’ve seen lately, and why did you like it? “Dunkirk.” The evacuation of the British army was an amazing accomplishment. We visited Dover in 2015 and visited the Dunkirk exhibit at Dover Castle.
What’s your favorite way to relax? Fishing or doing chores on our farm.
Who inspires you and why? As I have matured (meaning old), I am inspired by and thankful for all of those people who have done so much for our nation in the past. I think of people such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt and all of those men and women who have served in our military services to protect our nation and allow us to enjoy the freedoms that have developed over our history.
Spring, summer, winter or fall — which do you enjoy most and why? Fall. I love the cool crisp air, Ohio State football and our annual fishing trip to the Northwoods of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula.
What’s your favorite dessert? Peanut butter pie or German chocolate cake.
What do you love most about your community? I love the people because they care about their neighbors and can always be counted on in time of need to help others and the community in times of need or problems.
