I'm curious, Mr Gough, what was this public event and where did it take place? The governor's overbearing security guy claims that "it's not a public event" (although it certainly seems like he is lying about that, since there are lots of people in the background -- and they're gathered on what appears to be a public sidewalk). Obviously, the security guy's statement in no…

They're estimating up to 97,000 by September. With that # that is $38,000 per child. How's this? Offer their parents $10,000 to come pick them up. We can save $2.7B and have them out of the country ASAP. Of course we DNA them so they can't get the $$ twice to the same family subject to a fraud charge. Then you have to lock down the border too.

Dot Foods commemorates Dorothy's Market Grand Opening

3 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:

This fall, Dot Foods will also open a restaurant on E.
