  • Tri County Lumber expands business

    Born and raised on a dairy farm, Abner Freeman said he never thought he would be building pole barns and selling lumber.

    Freeman’s business, Tri County Lumber has expanded from one employee to 15, and recently moved into its larger, new facility in June.

    Freeman said the new facility allows him to sell hardware and tools, in addition to electrical and plumbing supplies, lumber for house framing, pole barn construction, metal and metal roofing services.

    Tri County Lumber, Freeman said, is now a one-shop stop for those in the construction business.

    To the editor:

    This was to accommodate a propane storage facility which will have an above-ground tank, holding 30,000 gallons of propane. The lot, with tanks, trucks, and a modular office, is only a stones throw away from houses in the Lebus subdivision.

    “I’ve been doing this since 1978...” Dorsey said Monday at her shop at 108 S. Main St. “I just fell into it and I loved it.”

    After operating an interiors business in Florida for 20 years, Dorsey said she was led to Cynthiana by her husband Scott.

    They had set out 800 chairs, but by 10:30, more than 1,000 people had shown up.

  • County’s “nature preserve” isn’t money well spent

    To the editor:

    There it is - the good news that Harrison County will be using taxpayer money to buy another farm. I am overjoyed to hear that a large sum of money will be going to a select few because another article in the same paper sadly proclaimed that unemployment hit 12 percent. This is a red-letter day! I am happy to see this new leadership continue the practice of buying farms/properties to line the pockets of a few individuals.
