Developers, not residents, should pay utility fee
To the editor: Received the bill for my assessed “utility fee” today. Why not just call it what it really is? A TAX. I have two problems with this new TAX. First, since the majority of runoff problems are a result of developers’ activities, why aren’t they footing the majority of this bill? Second, why is La Grange and Pewee Valley exempt? I hope the Oldham County Storm Water Management District is familiar with the Open Records act. The same one on which Judge Murner recently received enlightenment, as I am sure someone will request to see an accounting of the expenses in order to ensure that no monies received are spent on projects in the exempt areas. No one lives in a vacuum, ask Crit Luallen.
Michael Aines, Goshen Program is filled with caring adults To the editor: This letter is long overdue. For more than a year, my mother, Rosemarie, has been attending the Caring Adult Day program at the Tri-County Community Action Agency, in Buckner. I would like to commend each and every staff member at the program for their caring, compassionate attitude toward my mother, and the other members served. The Adult Day program allows my husband and I to continue working, knowing that Mom is well cared for. It has a stimulating environment, with activities like Bingo, Cornhole, card games, occasional outings, and other fun events. Mom is provided a hot noon meal and regular snacks. The program also provides transportation to our home in the evening (morning pickup is also available for those who need it). Everyone, from the kitchen staff to Connie, our wonderful van driver, are a very caring group of people. I can’t say enough of my confidence in this much-needed program. No wonder it’s called “Caring” Adult Day! Odell & Stephen Compton, Crestwood
