“I think I’m ready this time.”
By Bobbie Poynter
Lots of hugs, kisses and tears followed Debbie Hammons out of City Hall Friday as she officially retired – for the second time.
Hammons, 61, has been at Barbourville City Hall since 1975. She was the city clerk until she retired the first time in December 2005. After eight months of rest and relaxation, Debbie Hammons had enough and was ready to go back to work.
“I was bored to death,” said Hammons. “I was so happy to return to city hall in 2006 when Mayor Thompson asked me to come back part time as assistant city clerk. I’ll be forever grateful to him.”
