I used to smoke, but I stopped that," she said. No stranger to hard work, Wells grew up on a tobacco farm. Her family also grew and canned their own food. "A farm is a healthy place to raise children," she said. Wells managed M and M Apartments for 26 years and still manages the apartments that she currently lives in.

To the editor, I read with interest the Jessamine library decision about graphic materials and their location in the library. It is my conclusion and a recommendation, that two former employees (Sharon Cook and Beth Boisvert) be reinstated as employees of the library. Their action (the ladies) reminds me of another situation involving another female and the law. This lady was carrying a concealed weapon. That was against the law. She was attacked. She fought off the attacker.
