  • Elaine Geer, the unofficial mayor of Rineyville

    There’s one thing you can know for sure about Elaine Geer. She loves Rineyville.

    She was born and raised in Rineyville and is a 1975 graduate of North Hardin High School. Her roots in the town run deep. Her late father, Tom Wiseman, famous for his burgoo, lived there most of his life and her grandmother taught piano at the elementary school.

    “I just wish everyone could experience Rineyville in the 1960s,” Geer said. “It was a great place to raise children and it still is today.”

  • Art of Performance: Commitment to a goal makes a champion

    Goal setting is a powerful performance tool. It helps people stay on target for the things they want to accomplish. Goal setting helps people set higher goals, which push them to work harder and prioritize their energy for the attainment of the goals.

    However, some goal setting can be just a paper exercise that someone has mandated. It might be at the new year or a boss might strongly suggest the types of goals employees should achieve during the upcoming year.
