Painting the town


Julie Johnson of Lyman’s Brush Strokes Painting is creating a mural on the exterior of Perspicacity’s Whims on Pine Street. The mural will feature depictions of old Kemmerer, the historic post office, the original high school, the JC Penney store, Fossil Butte and the old Kemmerer Hotel. “I just love Kemmerer,” said shop owner Kate Zimmerman. “I want to show people coming through town what the old Kemmerer looked like.” (GAZETTE PHOTO / Michelle Tibbetts)
