Smelterville story brings back lots of memories
To the editor:
I left Cape Girardeau in the middle 1960s. I still have family there. I enjoy hearing about the people and events there. I really enjoyed reading about the Smelterville reunion. I lived in Smelterville in the 1940s and 1950s. I often think about it and the people. I remember Jake Kitchen. Lewis Hobbs, the Kellys and so many others.
