     The three men on the left had just finished helping Ray Brewer, right, cut burley tobacco on his farm.  They are, from left, Earl Fortner, Dale Ayres and Wayne Ethington.
     A little more than a year after this picture was taken, three of these men were photographed stripping tobacco at Ray Brewer's tobacco barn.  Click here to see that picture.
