<quoted text> This really gets my goat. Whoever wrote this must have a very low opinion of himself or herself. Surely they are being facetious. The very idea of calling the Dedmans our royal family is absurd. I feel sorry for the person who thinks the Dedmans are our royalty. King Dixon and his high-falutin' wife--you call them royalty. Royalty is gracious to those less fortunate. I resent this person for leaving such an insane post. They don't know their a__ from a hole in the ground. They are whistling in the wind.
Who heads Harrodsburg First, the main street program? What family was chairman of the Drama board when we had a drama? What family now heads the tourist commission? What family heads the Harrodsburg Trust? My defination of a royal family revolves around a family that is placed in a position of power and that that power is passed from generation to generation.

Your prose indicates an old man. Surely, if you have lived in the fair city of Harrodsburg for a life time, you are wise enough to realize your insignificance when compared to Royalty. Your ignorance about the culture of the city of Harrodsburg illustrates that it is you who does not know your a-- from the hole in your head.

Wrong. These are appointed positions. For example, since it was formed a member of one family has always been chairman of the tourist commission. The tourist commission collects the resturant tax. They keep half and send the other half to the local govermental body. Since this gentleman is head of the tourist commission guess which local business gets a lion's share of the tourist dollar spent on advertisment. Yet, his business whick is a business which caters to the tourist. Should we blame him and his family? I don't think so. Blame the people that we elect who appoint the same family to these powerful positions.

Most Americans secretly long for a royal family. It's why they are so obsessed with the doings of the Windsors. They see the regalia and pomp when they have something like a wedding or a funeral and they long to have that in their country.

Have we got off topic a little bit?? The question was asked of who is the most known family, not who the king and queen is of harrodsburg. But it does look like the Dedmans are in some of your eyes.

These are unpaid volunteer positions. It's not that the same people are appointed over and over because of some cabal, it's that NO ONE else will volunteer.

I've swept the carpet at the library, painted at the church, set up chairs for Haarodsburg First and any number of organizations. The reason is that if I didn't do it, no one else would. I don't see any of these agencies beating off volunteers with a stick.

If you don't like that Chuck, Helen and Dixon are on boards, please volunteer yourself and learn the ropes. After you do, take on a leadership role. I'm sure that they would be happy to spend their time doing other things.

there use to be a big, tall goon that hung around the old baseball field by corning and his last name was Demaree. Had a cigar always hanging out. Then he was actually working as a pharmacist in one of the little family owned pharmacies on main. He was creepy & as 11 and 12 yr old girls he sure acted inappropriate as heck. eeck ! So I hope that's not the same Demaree .

I agree. This is FAR from England & the castle although , there's lots of history there but Harrodsburg isn't the Windsors

dixon is a pretty good fellar. seems to treat everybody nicely.
Who brought up this stupid subject in the first place? It clearly echoes the thinking of someone whose feeling of self-woth is at a very low ebb. Dixon is a pretty good fellar--my black ass.
He and his daddy-love work the kitchen help like slaves. And Queen Elizabeth, Sir Dixon's concubine and consort, is so pleased that she snared a Dedman that she lost all her humanity and started treating those less fortunate with disdain. Like I asked earlier, who broought up this stupid topic in the first place. Whe it starts assessing the worth of certain families, it's getting way too far out of hand. I would guess, though, that the Dedmans are lapping it up like a fat cat lapping up milk. And that Keith Caton--he wanted to be SOMEBODY SO BAD that he all but sold his soul to the Dedmans. Harrodsburg royalty, my black ass indeed!! Ask someone who's worked for them at that old inn and in that tavern which ain't nothing but a watering hole where people go and guzzle liquor. It has probably contributed more to alcoholism in Harrodsubr than any other single thing. But Caton keeps on making them drinks.Of course, he wants to keep his job. And he's no stranger to the bottle himself.

I'll have you know. sir or madam, that the prose here throws no light on anyone's age. And someone's age throws no light on the prose. How stupid can you possibly be? If I was handing out awards for stupidity, I think you'd be the first one to receive such an award. You are in the thrall of the Dedman family. Why don't you admit it? Maybe you're a female who's still carrying a torch for one of the Dedman fellars. If so, get over it. Divorce is unknown to them. They wed for life, no matter what may develop.Be it infidelity, a ceasing of love, gay sex or whatever. No sir. They won't be giving up their spouses for the likes of you--if that is your motive for making such piss-ant remarks. Have you ever noticeed how people like good Doctor Nick go Scot free? Why give him a pass? He's as duplicitous as that other bunch.Wake up and smell the coffee. And while you are at it, smell a Dixon's ass and see if the smell isn't pretty much likt he smell of your own and everyother ass you've smelled. Oh, you pitiful creature.

Concubine?....lol....A wife is not a concubine. Do yourself a favor and learn how to use a dictionary when you are not sure of the meaning of a word.

My ain't you in a tissy. Are you sure you are not an old thing. You write like a crabby old woman. I won't call stupid, just dumb. Regarding the Dedman family, like them or not they are right at the top of this town. You are on the bottom.

Sweeping boy: It ain't about liking or not liking anybody. The truth is the truth. I have given you the example of a Dedman male being head of the tourist commission since it began. I have told you that the City Commission and the County government appoints members of the tourist commission. I have told you that 3% of every mean eaten in Harrodsburg restruants is collected by the Tourist Commission. I have told you that the Tourist Commission keeps half of and turns the rest over to the city. I have told you that much of the advertisement goes to support Beaumont Inn. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY BUSINESS THAT CAN COLLECT TAXES FROM THE PUBLIC AND SPEND IT ON THEIR OWN BUSINESS?
I say this again. These people take what is given to them. They cannot be blamed, I would do it too. But those elected government representatives of the city and county who keep appointing the same family to the same important and self serving positions are to blame. But that that is to be expected. As someone posted here before Royalty must be served.

Deb, your naivety is obvious. People who have the courage to look around know that in every small town there are families who work in the background to control the community. Their kids are favored in school. They are rewarded often by organizations such as the Chamber of commerce. They hold seats on boards which influence the community. And this favor is passed from one generation to the next. Royal families don't just refer to English queens and princes and lovely dutchess. We have our Royal family and they are honored just as the Windsors.

Big Moe ; I do not bow nor curtsy to no 0ne . Now . If u do that's you're perrogative . I do not look at this little washed up burg as to whom has the most nor least. Why don't you find out who is " royalty " in Salvisa , Burgin , Cornishville etc. I do not worry about if little jonny or skylark is being treated well by the " rich kids" I do not have that concern , sir.
