Former Cadiz Mayor Jim Ricks Passes Away
On a sad note, Trigg County lost one of its finest citizens this past week with the passing of former Cadiz Mayor Jim Ricks. Jim had served as Mayor and City Councilman for many years. Well known for owning the music store in downtown Cadiz, Mayor Ricks had also been host to the local gospel radio show on WKDZ.
The last time I saw Jim was last year when he played host to now State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach Jr. His presence will be missed and my sympathy goes out to his family and his daughter Emily Fitzsimmons who is a legal assistant to State Representative John C. Tilley.
