Dairy Dip will reopen under new yet-to-be-decided name

2013-07-08 - 114 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Sandra Keltner & daughter, Sarah Kelter, will be re-opening the Dairy Dip - under a new, not yet decided name, at 114 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY. The store will carry most ice cream and hotdogs - much the same menu as carried by the late Merle Reed when the store was a Dairy Queen, with some additions. Sarah Keltner is a recent graduate of Sullivan University's Baking and Pastry School, and will be making, among other things, ice cream cakes. Phyllis Firquin, Sandra's mother and Sarah's grandmother, will be policing the hotdogs. "There will be no cold hotdogs or dry hotdog buns with Mom around," Sandra Keltner said. "She won't have it." Former Sheriff and County Judge Executive Jimmy Firquin will be taking a hand in the operation, too, she said. Few Adair Countians will ever forget the homecooked meals the Keltners and Firquins served when they ran the store at Clay Ridge. A name, right now one being floated is "Sweets & Eats." But that will be known closer to opening, later this month. - Ed Waggener.
