  • Cling to Jesus!

    A while back I worked for a company in which my job was to transport the special needs to their daycare locations though out the Greater Cincinnati area.

    The tournament features the top 15 winners from the Alex Trebek-hosted show since the previous Tournament of Champions.

    Peffer had high hopes she would get an invite, but the corporate finance manager at Procter and Gamble was on pins and needles for about nine months.
