    From one of our readers
    I just wanted to say that I love The Way We Were Page. It’s my favorite page of the weekly paper. the picture in this week’s edition (Feb. 3), was especially cool. My family moved here from Versailles in 1985. I was just a young boy. We  lived on Forrest Drive. In the picture you can see how that entire end of Forrest Drive was just farmland 20 years prior. It was neat to see that. Thanks, and I look forward to more old photos in the future.
