  • City of Goshen residents complain about speeding

    Despite speed bumps being placed, speeding is “still a problem” according to residents on Harmony Landing Road.

    Several Goshen residents stated their case to commissioners at the City of Goshen Commission meeting last week, saying everyone living in between the speed bumps, which were placed last fall, is still having issues with reckless drivers.

  • City of Goshen selects Hammon as new commissioner

     

    In a closed session last week, the City of Goshen Commission selected Robert Hammon to fill the vacant seat formerly occupied by Terry Crotteau.

    Although he was born in Jefferson County, Hammon told the Era he has “deep roots” in Oldham County.

    Hammon’s mother was born and raised in La Grange along with her six siblings, some of who lived in the county at one time or another during their adult lives. Hammon’s grandmother was once postmistress of La Grange.

  • City of Goshen eliminates two movie events for budget reasons

     

    Goshen Mayor Bob Thacker and commissioners voted to eliminate two community movie showings at the City of Goshen Commission Meeting earlier this week.

    In the past, Goshen has hosted four movies a year, starting in June, at North Oldham Baptist Church, but to save money, the commission decided to take away some of the budgeted money for special events and add it to the new park fund.

    Movie licensing fees cost the City of Goshen $10,000 a year, but now because of the vote to reduce spending, that number will be cut in half.

    Cheer Tryouts
     This year, a brand new program is being offered at the Oldham County All About Kids location. It is called “Mini-prep All Stars.” It is still a competitive all-star cheer program, but athletes will only attend local competitions. It’s for ages 3-11 and is a great alternative for athletes or parents who don’t want to dive into the full all star program. It is less practice with shorter routine and less expensive than the traditional all star program.
