The popular Lake Gazette section of ‘Years Ago’ has been written by hometown native, Janet Painter, for approximately the last 18 years. Painter announced in late December she would not be writing the section any longer, as of the first of the year.
Painter explained, “I have loved gathering the information to write the Years Ago section over the years,” adding, “I always enjoyed reading and reminiscing through the past writings. It was a lot of fun.” Painter shared she will be semi-retiring in early spring relocating with her family to the southern Missouri town of St. James. Painter, along with her husband of 42 years, John, and family will be joining her daughter and family at their new location.
