I was raised in the small town of South Whitley just 25 miles west of Fort Wayne and moved to Fort Wayne almost 25 years ago. I now live in the historic West Central Neighborhood of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I am retired and love gardening, crafts of all kinds, working on my home, and collecting books for my small library.
I have loved politics for decades and have a B.A. in Political Science and a J.D.

Last year, one of the 100-year-old Sycamores across the street had one of its large limbs ripped from its body by a strong windstorm. It fell onto my neighbor’s lawn without being invited, and my neighbor, I am sure, did … Continue reading
