    One of a few sure things in my life is that I can keep my African violets in bloom year round.

    Basically, Edmondson doesn’t want Dry Ridge looking like a “big billboard.”

    Edmondson, a member of the Dry Ridge City Council for the last 10 years, has talked trash for several months at the city’s monthly council meetings.

    However, that motion was rescinded after a discussion that included comments from several audience members.

    The motion was ultimately made and approved to table the second reading indefinitely.
