To the Editor:
When I pulled my newspaper out of the mailbox I read with sadness the death of Bena Mae. Although I live in Bowling Green, I feel connected to Corbin and this newspaper through a book I wrote a few years ago about “The Boys From Corbin.”
My wife and I always looked forward to receiving the News-Journal, and not to disparage Trent Knuckles or Don Estep, Bena Mae’s column was the first thing both of us looked at.
Deborah and I are relative newcomers when it comes to goings-on in Corbin, but we will miss her writings and recipes, and we send our heartfelt thoughts to the people of Corbin and your newspaper family for your loss.
