    When most people turn 60 years old, they celebrate with the traditional birthday cake, presents and party favors. But for Judy Johnson, she didn't want another boring birthday – she decided to try something different by skydiving from 10,000 feet.

    Johnson lives near Arnold's Airport in Washington County, and she watches local skydivers from her house. After seeing how graceful they looked in the air, the seed was planted for her to give it a try.

Starting in December, I will begin employment at St. Catharine College as Director of Communications.
