Lexingtons transformation from small town to booming suburb is a change that Karen Wooten and Edie Harmon never imagined.
Its metamorphosis is both applauded and mourned by residents, as the community begins its 150th birthday celebration.
Wooten, 34, is happy with a pace that is busier than it was when she was a youngster, but not overwhelming.
The arrival of local outlets of several national retailers and neighborhoods steadily sprouting are a hit with her.
I love the choices, she said.
