There is good and bad everywhere you look. One Shelbyville resident is doing her best to try and make a difference and help the good outweigh the bad.
Brenda Elder is heavily involved in the Shelbyville areas as she wears many hats, one thing constantly on her mind is how to strike down poverty.
Elder is helping with the Museum on Main Street in Shelbyville, she explains how the museum was brought to town.
Elder says there is also a national museum that travels all around the United States that she thinks is worth checking out as this year it feeds off the bicentennial for the state of Illinois.
Elder appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
