My Favorite Quote: (Susan) "Consider the lilies of the field. They neither toil nor spin. They flourish and bloom." - The Bible, King James version, Matthew 6:28 Why worry?!
I admire (Jane) my mother and grandmother. I come from a long line of powerful, little women. My mother and her mother were strong and independent, but also so giving and they loved people. They taught me to stand up and to speak for what is right. Silence is agreement. They also taught me to give to those who need help.
Jane is from Kentucky and Susan is from Newberry.
My vision for Newberry is
(Jane) an eclectic, artsy downtown - like a small Asheville. A friendly little town with people on the streets in the evenings with their young children and their pets. Good food, shopping, art shops. We need a wine store!
(Susan) to see a thriving downtown Newberry like you see in all the old photos where the streets are jammed with people. People coming to Newberry to shop, bank, eat, socialize and conduct business.
The advice I would give my 20-year old self is
(Jane) that there is no need to rush. Enjoy your life.
(Susan) simple words - to thine own self be true.
You would be surprised to know
(Jane) that I struggle with depression every day of my life. Yoga keeps me centered, balanced, and happy. This is true.
(Susan) that I am a certified, advanced open water scuba diver and have dived all over the world with sharks, manta rays, giant clams, and have even been left at sea. I haved Jelly Fish Lake in Palau.
