They are offering to special order any title for their customers. I understand the name change and broadening of their market and I hope it works out for them.
3. Expect to see a new electronic sign go up at the YMCA this weekend. The Y is updating their signage to correspond with the branding change from some time ago and it should help freshen the outside of the building up a bit.
4. The Kentucky governor made some appointments to posts and commissions this week and a Fort Thomas resident made the cut. Joan Gregory of Fort Thomas, a retired teacher, was appointed to the Kentucky Commission on Women. She is part-time coordinator of the International Baccalaureate program at Holmes High School.
