DRIVING LESSONS: Lafayette resident John Stallings (left) and instructor Les Pence, of Sheridan, take a lunch break during a 4-hour driving lesson hosted by AARP at the Thorntown Public Library on Thursday. Pence, a volunteer, teaches the classes all over the area. In the course, AARP members learn about safe driving practices and new innovations in automobile technology.
"We are all volunteers who want to pay it back and be of service to keep older people on the road," Pence said. The attendees also take self-evaluations to determine whether or not they should still be driving.
