  • Last month a group of Cynthiana High School graduates visited with Mrs. Ron Ford at her home in Winchester, Ky. She and her husband recently purchased the old Colbyville Station Tavern and have since brought the old tavern back to its original beginnings. They have added two wings one of which was her beautiful glassed-in kitchen.
