What happened to the bread store? It's empty. Are we making room for a new pharmacy? Jeffersonville loves those pharmacies.

No bread store? I'm usually too lazy to make the extra stop, but was always happy with the money saved when I did.

it was part of the Twinkiegeddon. All those brands are owned by interstate bakeries that is going belly up. There's a slim chance they may be able to come back. if not the brands and recipes will be sold off.

So are my daughters. They've been vegetarians since they were 8 and 9 (now 17 and 18), and won't eat twinkies or other hostess products because they use animal fat.

Eighteen-year-old's response to hostess out of business? "Good."

That was the corporation though. The same kid is very community-oriented and a veteran of the projects. She won't see the 'bread store' closing the same way. A lot of people have depended on it for a long time.

It was a Dollie Madison Store. Hostess bought Dollie back in about 2005. Yeah it is a victim of the Hostess demise. I hate to see that for the local jobs lost.

While the Hostess management was being lambasted for making too much money, the union bosses were cleaning up!

An excellent Op Ed in today's C&J. Hedge Fund Manager, with Twinkie smeared all over his face, points back at the union dude and says, "It's ALL his fault!"

Union dude just wants a fair wage with decent benefits. If you're off tomorrow, you can thank a union. If you HAVE to work tomorrow and you're getting double holiday pay, you CAN THANK A UNION! If you're working at Wal-Mart, I'm sorry!

Unions are just another big business with fatcats making the big bucks while you bust your butt! Wasn't always that way and they made America a better place.....50-100 years ago. There are people working at numerous places within the metro area where workers are making $10-13 and hour and paying the same UAW dues as folks at Ford making 3 times that much. They are working in nasty, noisy and often unsafe conditions too. If unions were all still doing what they started out to do, they wouldn't have to buy politicians to force people to join.

I was treated better at Wal-Mart than I was at either UPS or Meijer, and both were Union.

I was wondering if that bread store was closed, but haven't had a chance to go by. There might be a similar store that is still open in Louisville, but it's on 7th Street Road.
