  • I’ve been contemplating going back to work.

    Well, sort of. I mean, I want to. I do. Kind of. My kids are growing older. My son will start kindergarten in the fall, and my daughter will be old enough to start preschool.

    It seems a good time to start looking. I like the idea of doing something, using my mind for more than worrying about my kids eating enough vegetables, contributing to the household funds, and in turn being able to go out to eat on occasion or buy a dress without feeling that I’m taking money away from my kids’ vegetable fund.

  • Dealing with breast cancer didn’t dampen Theda Meredith’s spirit, her success in banking or her love of life.

    In 1997, Meredith was diagnosed with breast cancer. She found the lump herself and a specialist recommended removing the tumor along with a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery on her right breast. There were 13 malignant lymph nodes.

    She went through chemotherapy and felt fine. The cancer returned in 2000 and again in 2003.

  • After losing a job a few years ago, Fred Cox seized the opportunity to put wheels in motion and start his own business.

    “I’ve built a really good crowd travelling around with this,” Cox said of the truck.
