  1. My wife grew up in a little mountain community that has almost ceased to exist as the older generation dies off. The lead and zinc mines closed in the late 60s and that was the end of the jobs so the younger generations moved away to where the work is. It's a shame; this close knit community, once rooted in stone is withering away.
