If you still have Christmas shopping or other retail therapy needs upcoming, please avoid Fayette Mall. They do not want our business. Whether it's because we are from schools in Danville or because we were a group of disabled students, we were treated with contempt, ridicule and spite during a recent visit. We've transported disabled students to Fayette Mall for years without even a hiccup. Most recently, however, we weren't afforded the same privilege as Fayette or Jessamine County school buses and the same respect was not shown to our staff, driver and children.

For her 16th birthday, Kari Taylor wanted to go shopping. Big surprise. "I have a closet full of clothes," Taylor said. Apparently, she needed more. She also wanted to get batteries. "For my camera," she said. "It keeps going down. " How does she drain the power so quickly? "People always take pictures of me," she said. Pretty typical behavior for a 16-year-old girl. But Kari is not a typical 16-year-old. In 2000, she was in a devastating car accident that confined her to a wheelchair and left her with limited mobility in her arms and hands.

LEXINGTON - The most important numbers to Lexington retailers - and retailers everywhere, for that matter - are the ones on their bottom lines. But there are other numbers that the merchants in this commercial hub for central and eastern Kentucky also look to as a measure of their success. These other, highly important numbers include 40422, 40330, 40440, 40484 and 42539, the zip codes for Danville, Harrodsburg, Lancaster, Stanford and Liberty. Based on marketing studies conducted by several Lexington stores, residents of these area communities do a fair amount of shopping in Lexington, especially those on the south and west ends of the city, along Nicholasville and Harrodsburg roads.
