The Jessamine County Fiscal Court formed a special committee Tuesday night in order to address a letter from the Cambridge Estates East Home Owners Association. The letter asked the fiscal court to change the current policy that requires the gates of their community be open from 5:45 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day. In the request to the court, the letter states that traffic has become more dangerous and damaging to the roads, which are maintained by the association. With help from the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office, the HOA conducted a study at the rear gate that showed more than 300 cars entered and left the estates in a single day. There are only 42 households in the neighborhood, and the study did not account for any traffic through the front gate.

With one hand, Sheila Hanes works the cash register. With the other, she hands a customer a pack of cigarettes. As that customer leaves, she bids a fond farewell, and then quickly issues a warm welcome to another. "Mornin', sweetie," Hanes says to the man coming up to the cash register to pay for gas. "How you doin', Sheila," the man replies, then says with a laugh, "Boy, it's cold outside, just like you like it. " "You know I'm not a winter person. I like the cold weather just as much as I like a nightmare," she says.
