    Oh my gosh! I have never experienced stage fright like that in my entire 46 years!

    Flashback a few hours preceding the actual contest: I began my morning by driving to Louisville for my chemo at the Brown Cancer Center. I took the scenic route through Younger’s Creek and Boston and Lebanon Junction, and as I was traveling I heard John Denver singing his classic hit “Country Roads Take Me Home.”

    Meers, 63, worked as chief deputy, handling juvenile casework. She was friendly, but firm in handling the confidential nature of the court files. It was common to see families asking for her assistance and advice in the office.
