3 businesses to open in Hurricane
HURRICANE — The Main Street District in Hurricane is growing again with three new businesses set for official grand-opening and ribbon-cutting events on the same date, Friday, Jan. 25.
Kicking off the morning’s activities at 10 a.m. will be Liberty Chiropractic, which is located on Main Street beside Mountain Que.
Liberty’s goal is to provide regular and affordable chiropractic care to improve quality of life without the use of drugs or surgery, according to Dr. Holly Garrison. She has Monday through Saturday appointments available.
Old Mill Bakery, located on Morris Court just off Main Street near Dancing Unlimited, will have a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. at its location. The business offers made-from-scratch treats including cinnamon rolls, brownie/cookie hybrid cookies, cow chips cookies, peanut butter pie, fresh-baked bread and more.
At 11 a.m., the city will officially welcome The Center on Main Street. It is a grassroots community center where members can take and teach classes ranging from arts and crafts to music, games, dance, cooking and more. It is open to all ages with members taking classes Sundays through Thursdays and then open to the public on Fridays and Saturday for music, board games and other activities.
“We are always happy to welcome new businesses to Hurricane, but three official ribbon cuttings in one day is awesome,” Hurricane Mayor Scott Edwards said.
HOLSTON GASES: Holston Gases announced this week the opening of a new store at 12290 U.S. 60 in Ashland.

OVBC: On Jan. 15, Ohio Valley Banc Corp.’s board of directors declared a cash dividend of 21 cents per common share payable on Feb. 10 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Jan. 25.
For over nine years (37 consecutive quarters), OVBC has maintained a consistent, regular quarterly dividend of 21 cents per common share, the company said in a release.
“This dividend comes just as our income tax professionals at Loan Central gear up for another refund season,” OVBC President and CEO Tom Wiseman said in the release. “The annual flood of friends and neighbors who trust us for their tax preparation remind us that we are making a positive impact on the communities we serve. In response, Loan Central is staying open later and will be opening our doors on traditional bank holidays in January and February.”
Ohio Valley Banc Corp. is based in Gallipolis, Ohio. The primary subsidiaries of the company are Ohio Valley Bank and Loan Central. The companies’ websites are www.ovbc.com and www.myloancentral.com.
