Maria Hoover, SBJ Features EditorWhen Community Foundation of the Ozarks announced Nov. 30 that Greene County Commissioner Roseann Bentley is the 2011 Humanitarian, I’ll admit I was a little puzzled – not because she is undeserving of the honor, but because I was surprised that she hadn’t already received it before now.
