Can you crack this code and reveal our next Dancing with the Stars couple.
Pam Anderson Burpo, you are on a roll! You correctly guessed our most recent DWTS clue: "Herb Reckon" is an anagram of "Hornbecker". Our next DWTS celebrities are Dr. Michael and Megan Hornbecker! They are married and have 2 children, Emma (8) and Sam (6). They reside in Lebanon where Dr. Hornbecker practices internal medicine at Witham Hospital. Megan is a marketing director at Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, IN. Dr. Hornbecker is also the president of the board of directors for the Boone County Cancer Society. When asked what many people would not know about them, Megan responded that many may not know she is originally from Canada. Dr. Hornbecker says people may not know he spent a summer in Glacier National Park volunteering to repair trails and build pasture fence for the park rangers’ horses. While hiking one day, his group was charged by a female grizzly bear and her 2 cubs. Luckily no one was injured, but he says it is an experience that he will never forget! We welcome Michael and Megan to the competition!
Are you ready for the big night of Dancing with the Boone County Stars. We are going to put on a show and here is a preview of one possible stand in. We told him about the big event and he got really excited.
Herb Reckon will be our next Dancing with the Boone County Stars participant. You say you don’t recognize that name? Take a closer look at the name “Herb Reckon”, and see if you can figure out what the REAL name of our next dancing couple is!
The winner of our latest DWTS prize puzzle is…Whitney Hodges! Whitney correctly guessed that our next dancing couple is Donnie and Tammy Lawson. Donnie and Tammy Lawson have been married for 29 years. They own and operate Lawson’s Land and Cattle Company and farm with their daughter, Kay Leigh, and son-in-law Jeremy Fisher. They also have a son, Clayton, who is a second lieutenant airborne army ranger and is stationed at Ft. Carson, Colorado.
Donnie is in his second year of his first term as a Boone County Commissioner. Tammy is the Sugar Creek 2nd Precinct Chair. The Lawsons have been involved in various community activities and leadership responsibilities including 4-H, FFA, and charity fundraisers. Local, state and national politics have all benefited from the Lawsons’ involvement.
While neither of the Lawsons have any dance experience, they are excited to support MHABC and its mission because Donnie’s mother, Janis Lawson, was a big supporter and volunteer for Mental Health America of Boone County. They are dancing in memory and honor of her commitment to helping those in need.
We are excited to have Donnie and Tammy participate in DWTS this year!

Pam Anderson Burpo guessed it correctly! The answer to our trivia question last week about our next Dancing with the Stars couple is....Jeff and Amy Godby!
Jeff and Amy are both longtime residents of Lebanon, where they make their home with their two children, Sam (18) and Kara (13). Sam will attend Purdue University in the fall, and Kara is a soon- to- be 8th grader at Lebanon Middle School. Jeff is the owner of Godby Home Furnishings, and Amy has been an elementary school teacher for many years here in Lebanon. They are active in the Lebanon Sports Boosters and the Lebanon First Baptist Church. Amy is also a board member with the Lebanon Educational Foundation. Jeff claims no prior dance experience, but Amy may give the competition a run for their money as she did take tap lessons when she was 5 years old! Good luck Jeff and Amy!
