The staff of The Oldham Era has learned several newspapers were dropped in driveways in Crestwood and Pewee Valley this week containing fliers for the Ku Klux Klan.

Readers reported to The Era that they received the newspapers, either dated June 26 or July 3, in their driveways Tuesday morning.

The Oldham Era was in no way involved with the distribution of these newspapers or the fliers attached to them, nor does it endorse the political views of the Ku Klux Klan.

Research online shows that it is a common practice of the KKK across the nation for members to take newspapers from newsstands across the county and distribute them with fliers promoting the organization.

The Era will file a police report after reviewing newsstand reports this week to determine if papers have been stolen from racks at vendor locations.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Oldham Era Publisher Julie Nelson Satterly at 222-7183 ext. 114 or e-mail her at editor@oldhamera.com.
