  • Ask Wilma and Glenn Johnson what’s the key to a long, happy marriage you might get a joke. But listen closely and you’ll get a little wisdom from a couple who just might know the secret to a long marriage.

    “You have to live a long time,” said Wilma, with a giggle. “No, you don’t take fights to bed with you.”

    “If you have an argument or a fight, you kiss before bed,” Glenn agreed. “You don’t carry grudges, that’s the key.”

    “It makes it easy that when he wakes up, he’s always in a good mood,” said Wilma. “He’s a morning person so he sets the good mood for the day.”

    Glenwood native Jessica (Kamish) Ellis’ business, The Green Spot in Omaha, is a labor of love.

    The natural pet food business came easily to Ellis.

    “Her first words were not mama or dada, they were doggie, doggie, doggie,” said her mother, Dr. Jacque Young of Glenwood.

    That natural instinct for pets, and a head for business, was recognized this past May, when the young company was awarded the Small Business Association’s Small Business of the Year Award for Nebraska’s Second District.
