Jim Bodard  April 12, 2003
Most of my life was spent in Columbia.  The last 20 or so years in the home remodeling field.  My wife and I currently are retired and living close to Stockton Lake where I spend my time fishing, hunting, tending livestock and other miscellaneous farm and outdoor activities.
Dick Dalton December 28, 2002

I have loved teaching Health Classes at Lincoln University for 17 years.  Every semester I seem to evolve a little.  I have loved being married to Marsha since 1981.  She works in computer warehousing at the State Department of Health.  I have loved my daughter, Alethea, who is 29 and living and working in Columbia.  I loved working in the ministry for 25 years starting in 1975.  I have loved exploring the broader arena of spiritual paths the last few years.  I loved being part of Dr. Jean Houston's West Coast Mystery School this past year and exploring myself as we explored 8 other cultures of the world.  I wasn't all that thrilled this summer to find out my prostate cancer had returned for the 3rd time.  The radiation treatments had side effects but I'm through that and feeling very good.  I keep up singing, do a little acting, am writing a few books, have more books than I read, enjoy quality time with friends and keep my website up to date.  You can find me there at: http://www.lincolnu.edu/~ddalton.  I answer friendly emails and would look forward to hearing from you.  Pray for peace.  Live as peaceably as you possibly can.  You do effect the world, one way or. . . .

Louis Griggs December 18, 2001
Married to Vannessa Griggs.  Eight children (3 are stepchildren), 8 grandkids.  Big on Rams football, Cardinal baseball, bass, croppie & trout fishing, NASCAR and family.  Presently have one son a staff sergeant in the USAF based in England and another a Marine Corporal recently back from Kosovo.  We have had some anxious moments since 9/11.  Also have another son a Navy vet.  Wife is an Army vet so the family has all branches of service but the Coast Guard represented.  Have been a computer programmer with my present company since 1982.  Did mainframe programming for 8 years but have done almost exclusively PC work for the last 10 or 11 years.
Ginny Myers February 11, 2010

I have lived in Columbia most of my life, was born in Boone Hospital Center. It was Boone County Hospital then. I grew up in Midway, running barefoot, riding my bike, fishing in the creek, playing baseball with the guys (and Ruthie Watson and Martha Jordan - we were out numbered being the only girls) and swimming at Henderson's Lake. Yup! I was a tomboy big time! When I reached my ninth year of school I left the one room school house in our little neighborhood and joined the city kids in Jefferson Junior High. Culture shock set in! I was a shy backward kid until my senior year - then the new dance called the Twist happened & I was fairly good at it. I won the first three or four Twist contests in Columbia. What fun!! At least it brought me out of my shell.

My first husband was Rick Bear from Atlanta I spent a year with him there and then moved back to Columbia in the fall of 1963. In 1965 I married Ron Vaught from Camdenton, Mo. and we lived in Columbia for the six years we were together. In 1971 I finally got it right. I married Stan Starks and we have lived in Columbia for all these years. I have three sons, two granddaughters (twins born in August, 2002) and one grandson (Born in March, 1987).

I did take some classes at Columbia College when I was in my 40's but did not complete a degree. In 1978, I became a licensed Real Estate Broker/Salesperson.

Stan has been a home builder in Columbia for most of our time together.
I was his assistant in many areas. I managed his office/accounting, I was his Real Estate Agent, ran a lot of errands and assisted in the choosing of the *girly stuff* in the homes he built. We worked together very well because we had only one boss. He said it was me and I said it was him - go figure! I enjoyed being a part of his business for many years.

In 2002 at the ripe old age of 57 our Medical Insurance became so outrageously expensive that I decided to find a job that would put us in a group policy. That is not an ideal time of life to try to find a job, but I did. My first job did not work out - my choice not theirs.

But in July of 2003 I began working for the Dialysis Clinic, Inc. and have been with them ever since. I am hoping to retire in January, 2011 when I reach my eligible SS retirement age of 66. Well maybe - if I am still physically and mentally alert I may work a bit longer. Who knows? Ginny passed away May 29, 2012
