  • Phone fraud hurts business

    To the Editor:

    In 1995, after recovering from cerebral hemorrhage, I made Nannette’s beer cheese at Ken’s New Market. Everyone liked it so well, I started making and selling it. Connie and Joe Lemons sold it to help me out with my bills.

    Giving some to the Lions Club Auction one night, someone reported me to the health department. So, I went to the state and got my license and permit to sell it. I am still in business this year (2008).
