Rebecca Wheat has proven you don't have to have super powers to be a super hero.


The former outreach worker for PATH Senior Services at the DeWitt County Friendship Center has been through the ringer since the end of June.


In a matter of less than two weeks, Wheat saw the job she had disappear, literally overnight, because the company could sustain it's services thanks to the state budget mess. Then found a new company for the same position in about two weeks. Wheat says the whirlwind started well before that though, thanks to the budget stalemate.



Wheat's return has had the feel of Michael Jordan coming out of retirement to rejoin the Chicago Bulls. Executive Director Sissy Leggett says her return has been very exciting.



Wheat will be at the DeWitt Friendship Center and also in Farmer City.


Now with Community Care Systems Senior Information Services, Wheat is availabel for appointments on issues from Medicare to drivers license fee help to Social Security. Contact the DeWitt County Friendship Center at 217-935-9411 for more information.
