Q: When did you move to the Bonner area and what brought you there?

A: I always wanted to be a teacher or a secretary.
Q: What’s your ideal vacation spot?
A: We just got back from Maine and New Hampshire. I’d have to say that’s ideal. Maine and New Hampshire in the fall.
Song: “What Child Is This?” That’s my favorite Christmas carol.
Food: Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. Ice cream is my favorite food in the whole world.
