Mary Beth Meyers (of Grangeville) says the dream life she enjoys today started two
decades ago when she finally ended a domestic violence nightmare. "I escaped. I had a mean husband. And me and my 2-year-old
daughter literally escaped," Mary Beth says of her flight from Texas in
September 1990 to Idaho. Her marriage, to a man she had been with since she was 17
years old, eventually eroded amid a world of drug abuse. "We were married 11 years. It wasn't all bad. It had been good
for awhile. But it was just the last year or so, he'd been mean three
times." The abuse finally escalated, she recalls, to a life-or-death reason to flee/David Johnson, Lewiston Tribune. More here. (Lewiston Tribune photo)
