Hungry early risers have another breakfast option: The Lebanon Dairy Queen, located at 412 S. Madison St. in Lebanon.
What’s on the menu?
Biscuits and gravy, breakfast sandwiches, two types of breakfast burritos, pancakes and cinnamon pull-aparts an employee on Thursday said were so good you’d feel guilty about eating them.
The employee said the location started serving breakfast June 1. It’s served from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. She said the Lebanon location is the only area Dairy Queen currently offering breakfast, but stay tuned: More locations in the area are set to offer breakfast after seeing how it goes over in Lebanon.

It’s not just Jetson-like wishful thinking: Development of flying cars is definitely a thing, and one of Google’s co-founders apparently is heavily involved.
That’s according to a Bloomberg report, which claims Larry Page has personally funded Zee.Aero, a Silicon Valley startup developing small electric planes that take off and land vertically. Page has dumped more than $100 million of his own fortune into the company, which has a couple prototypes that take regular test flights over Hollister, Calif.
Then there’s Kitty Hawk, another company Page formed that also is working on designing flying cars. Kitty Hawk staffers are kept away from Aero.Zee staffers, but the two groups are after the same thing.
Speaking of high-tech transportation, Tesla is bringing back its cheapest model of electric car.
You can now get a Model S 60 for a cool $66,000.
The company is reviving the car because pre-sales of Tesla’s still-to-come Model 3 have been so strong. Rather than patiently waiting for the Model 3, Tesla figured, maybe folks would be fine having the S 60. The model is no slouch: It can get to 60 miles per hour in five and a half seconds and includes a pseudo-autopilot function. It can go 218 miles on a single charge.
People are buying less laundry detergent.
Procter & Gamble (which owns Tide) has seen that slide in its bottom line.
Meanwhile, recent Tide ads recommending folks use two or even three detergent pods at a time for their largest loads have hit the air and Internet.
Procter & Gamble insists they’ve made the recommendations based on customer feedback. Competitors say that’s bunk.
“It’s clearly a way to boost sales,” said John Replogle, CEO of Seventh Generation, a company on the verge of launching its own brand of detergent pods.
