Portion of KY 20 to be Named in Honor of Bob Flick, longtime Hebron Grocer and Resident

The Robert “Bob” Flick Memorial Highway will be officially dedicated at 10 a.m. Aug. 19 in the lot of the former Flick’s IGA on KY 20 in Hebron, next to the McDonald’s.  The public is welcomed to attend the sign unveiling.  For the complete story, click here.

A bill sponsored during the last legislative session by state Sen. John Schickel, R–Union, and state Rep. Addia Wuchner, R–Florence, officially named the portion of the road between KY 237 and KY 212 after the longtime grocer.  Flick died in November at the age of 73.

“Bob Flick and his grocery stores were iconic fixtures in Boone County for so many years,” Schickel said. “We thought it only fitting that the road his original store was on should be officially designated the Bob Flick Memorial Highway.“

Boone County Mourns the Loss of Former Judge/Executive Bruce Ferguson

The Boone County Fiscal Court is sad to share news of the passing of former Judge/Executive Bruce Ferguson.  Prior to his long political career, Judge Ferguson studied law and Agriculture at the University of Kentucky and earned a BA in history and political science from Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, KY.  His career in public service began when he was elected to the Boone County Board of Education, where he served from 1955–1961.  In 1964, he was elected County Judge/Executive for Boone County, serving until 1982.  He later returned to the position of Judge/Executive, serving from 1986–1992.

During his tenure as Judge/Executive, Boone County experienced growth and several significant advancements.  Judge Ferguson helped spearhead the creation of the Northern Kentucky Tri–County Economic Development Corporation (Tri–Ed) and other regional collaborations, the county’s first hospital, the Historic Preservation Review Board and a county water system.  In 1992, he accepted a position as commissioner of the Department of Local Governments, serving until 1996, when he returned to Boone County.  Bruce Ferguson remained active in the community and contributed as a member of a number of civic groups including the Boone County Conservation Board.  He contributed to the history of Boone County in many ways serving as president of the Big Bone Historical and was instrumental in the effort to establish Big Bone Lick State Park and the Friends of Big Bone.  Bruce Ferguson was preceded in death by his wife Elizabeth to whom he was married for more than 50 years, and had five children.   Judge/Executive Gary W. Moore shared that, “Boone County would not be what it is today without the tremendous leadership and vision of Bruce Ferguson.  We are saddened to hear this tragic news.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of Bruce Ferguson.”

Arrangements are pending and will be shared when finalized.
