    Today I’d like to take a few minutes of your time to talk about what I believe is perhaps the saddest word in the English language.

    Now, some might suggest that the saddest word is a medically-related word such as “inoperable” or “‘terminal,” and I certainly am not minimizing those. Others might think the saddest word is more philosophical, such as “almost.”

    The future of Ethington Auto beyond this weekend remains in doubt today.

    The Kentucky Motor Vehicle Commission on Friday ordered the dealership’s license revoked, saying that it “must cease all activity as a used motor-vehicle dealer.” The MVC set a deadline of Sunday.

    The attorney for its owners, Donnie Ethington of Shelbyville and William Ledford of Somerset, this week filed an appeal in Franklin Circuit Court, which is the only option available to reverse the MVC’s decision.
