Dr. Donald L. Buehler 31 Years in the Industry Senior Optometrist, Illinois Eye Center In the early years of working at Illinois Eye Center (IEC), I would wake up and dress in my suit and tie. You don’t really imagine an eye doctor would be red/green colorblind, but I am. I’d always ask my kids “How do I look?” My youngest would get a mischievous look in her eye, and say “you look great, Dad!” I always knew she was trying to trick me into something that didn’t match or was out of style, but I’d go downstairs anyway only to have my wife ask me, “What are you wearing? Go change.”
Del Timmerman Timmerman Construction LLC, Strawberry Point, IA 32 Years in Concrete Construction In 1994, I bought a brand new red F-350 crew cab and my dad, Willis, told me that I would never pay it off. It was my first major purchase since taking over the small concrete construction company he started and I was pretty damn driven to prove him wrong.
