Your Friend on the Front Page

Every week, the Mt. Pleasant News will feature a Henry County resident in a profile snapshot. The questions will appear in bold.

This week?s ?Friend on the Front Page? is Deborah Sinclair.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? Our family moved to Mt. Pleasant from Des Moines in 1997. We relocated for an employment opportunity for my husband, Brian.

Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn?t have that you would like to see? I would like to see a fine dining restaurant in town.

What is your favorite summertime activity? During the summer, I like to listen to the Boston Red Sox games, take walks on the bike path around East Lake and the high school, and when possible, travel to Colorado.

What do you think is a Mt. Pleasant trademark? The fountain in Central Park.
