Whatever happened to Jim Smith, who I think had the Inn built? I assume he has passed away.

Also, what ever happened to the Reed fellow who, I think along with Jim Smith, was going to build a theme park (this fell apart and never happened) near the lakes? Is he still alive?

Yes, Jim Smith died several years ago.
He had sold the Inn to someone else a
year or so before he died. I don't
know about the Reed fellow.

Jim Smith is Rex Smith's daddy. The same Rex Smith that is running for State Senate. Jim owned Smith Contracting and Bid Rigging Company.

Reed is still alive, they owned the railroad together.

Bob Green built the Executive Inn, Jim Smith bought it from him, then sold it to Yvonne Holsapple (SIC) whom Jim made the hotel manager when he (Jim Smith) bought it from Bob Green and all three IMHO were great owners to work for.

I know the thread has gone toward the Smith way but is the Reed your speaking about possibly Clyde Reed. If so he started and ran Reed Crushed Stone in Lake City. He had two children David and Marilyn. When mr Clyde passed away. Many years ago. His kids inherited RCS. Years later they sold to Vulcan. The children still live locally.... Just adding some info as I knew it from my dad...

WRONG..... he sold it to her for $1 before he passed away..... Sounds ridiculous, but it's the truth. Do your research before you post false information.

David Reed is one of the nicest people you would ever meet! He donates a ton of money to area causes on the condition that they don't reveal his identity! He has a very good heart!

actually, they built the big "e", then sold it to his mother's brother's nephew. after that it changed hands to a cousin,(twice removed), in montanna. and just few years later, the cousin,(butch smith), took a trip to India where he sold it to a towel head, which he in turn abandoned the building and the city tore it down, after the bills were finally paid by the taxpayers of paducah then a short time later, the Smiths invented the internet and the rest is history!
