8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Dot Foods commemorates Dorothy's Market Grand Opening

Dot Foods commemorates Dorothy's Market Grand Opening

6 months, 2 weeks ago by 0

On Wednesday, Dot Foods hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of its new 9,400-square foot Dorothy's Market store located at 125 East Main Street in Mt. Sterling. Dot Foods owners, including company co-founder and Tracy family matriarch Dorothy Tracy, joined employees from Dorothy's Market and Dot Foods, Mt. Sterling Mayor Dane Flesner, and members of the county board and the Action Brown County board to acknowledge the occasion. 

The store, which was named by Dot employees in honor of Dorothy Tracy, is the first new building to be constructed on Main Street in nearly 40 years. Dot Foods, and members of the community, view Dorothy's Market as a catalyst to help drive other new and exciting developments in the uptown area.  Mt. Sterling's long-range plan for the area blends new development and renovation of existing structures. 

"Today is a great day," said Joe Tracy, president of Dot Foods. "We are very excited to have this new location in the historic Uptown district and even more enthusiastic about what this store represents in terms of potential growth for this area. We believe that Dorothy's Market can jumpstart an exciting new era for uptown Mt. Sterling.  We are so pleased at the positive support and response we've already had from the community."

Dorothy's Market replaces the original Dot Foods' Country Store with nearly twice the floor space. The Tracy Family opened the Country Store in 1988 as a way to help curb waste and help the community by offering quality, discounted items in a retail setting. 

The market offers 30 percent more frozen foods space, 15 percent more space for dry goods, and doubled refrigerated space in comparison to the Country Store. Dorothy's Market also offers guests a contemporary general store atmosphere thanks to the skillful designs of architect Kiku Obata & Company, which delved into the history of the community and general stores for design inspiration. 

"We are excited to see the new retailers filling in the Uptown landscape," said Brad Henry, chair of Action Brown County. "Every restaurant and merchant that chooses this area is working together to create a solid business community." 

Today's ceremonial events were a prelude to a big celebration weekend taking place at the store April 4, 5 and 6. Dot Foods is inviting the community to attend the grand opening festivities, which will include the chance to enter to win a Weber Grill, a Kenmore Freezer and $100 Dorothy's Market gift certificates and:
            Friday, April 4
            5 p.m. – 8 p.m.            OPEN HOUSE, Meet Dorothy Tracy; Music by Ketcham Louden Live

This fall, Dot Foods will also open a restaurant on E. Main Street in the historic Hagel Building.  It will connect to Dorothy's Market through an elevator lobby.  The new restaurant, which will be officially named at a later date, will be open for lunch and dinner and will feature a blend of casual and fine dining options.
