Goodspeeds to celebrate 60th


Don Goodspeed is legally blind, but when he leans in close to look at his wife, Shirley, there is a twinkle in his eye.

The couple were married on Valentine’s Day in 1953 and are celebrating their 60th anniversary at the Platte Valley Community Center Feb. 16 from noon to 3 p.m.

The couple is known around town as the “golf-cart people”. A few years ago they gave up their licenses due to poor eyesight and now drive a golf cart around town.

Shirley can still see and she does the driving.

The couple have two golf carts, one gas and one electric and they know how far each can travel.
