Paint Lick is a place where barbecued ribs the size of your forearm are served at the recently reopened Sweet Peas Diner. Traffic is brisk on the two lanes through town, which can be leisurely driven in 20 seconds — heavy on pickups, with mufflers in operation only sparingly. Volunteers staff the community center, which gives out clothing and appliances and operates a small library. A doctor who felt led to Paint Lick operates a clinic where he specializes in patients left out by high-cost basic care.
