The Face of Hikes Point
John Rodgers is known as the Face of Hikes Point.  John Rodgers is known all over Louisville because of his creation Hikes Point NewsAlmost every day people say to him, "you look familiar.  I've seen you somewhere before".  He replies, "I guess I look like a lot of other people." He started branding Hikes Point News and his face together six years ago. When people see him they think of HIkes Point.  When they see Hikes Point News they think of him.  Many people refer to him as Mr. Hikes Point.  Now John is promoting some of the beautiful communities in the 11 County Economic Business Development area through the on-line magazine Hikes Point News America.
 
There are many people who make volunteer contributions to Hikes Point.  But, many people will tell you that John's volunteer work "stands out" because of the ways he promotes Hikes Point to areas outside of Hikes Point.   New businesses seeking to locate in HIkes Point contact John and Hikes Point News to get inside information about Hikes Point. 
 
Hikes Point News is viewed by some businesses as the clearing house for information (quasi Chamber of Commerce) and as the business leader for Hikes Point.  Many times Hikes Point News is contacted before landlords and Realtors by those seeking to purchase a house or open a business.  Hikes Point News is quick to put people who are interested in Hikes Point in touch with the right people who can help them.
 
John works as a volunteer for Hikes Point News and as a retired minister and businessman, he raised thousands of dollars last year to pay for the printing and distribution cost of thousands of copies of Hikes Point NewsSince the beginning of the volunteer publication of the Hikes Point News magazine, many new businesses have opened in Hikes Point.  Also, many new families have move to Hikes Point.  John has fought hard to change the negative opinion and view many inside and outside of have of Hikes Point. 
 
When John began his volunteer work with HIkes Point News one person told him that Hikes Point is the "Outhouse of Louisville".   But, this is not true, especially for John.  John is quoted as saying, "If I can't go to heaven just let me stay in HIkes Point.  It's always been heaven to me".  John lives a modest life and when he is not promoting Hikes Point he enjoys visiting his two daughters and ten grand children.
