  • Fiscal court denies comprehensive plan

    Oldham County’s Fiscal Court did not approve the goals and objectives of the Comprehensive Plan for Oldham County on Tuesday.

    As detailed in the meeting two weeks ago, the Fiscal Court can only approve, deny or amend the goals and objectives of the plan. The court has no authority to say anything about the actual plan itself. However, because the plan was presented with the goals and objectives and voted upon as an ordinance, the comprehensive plan did not receive approval either.

  • Students compete at state fair
  • Rating change may equal discounts for some owners

    Property owners in the North Oldham Fire Protection District might soon enjoy a discount on their insurance rates, thanks to a revised ISO rating.

    ISO (Insurance Services Office) is a nation-wide subscription service that most insurance companies  use for establishing premiums for fire insurance based all or in part on the “Property Protection Class” (PPC) rating.  A PPC of “1” is the best you can get and a PPC of “10“ would typically be assigned to areas without any fire protection at all.

  • Just do your very best

    There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think of something my Dad said.  My Dad instilled in my brother and sister and me the adage: “Just do your very best.”  Other ways of saying this for Dad were: “Focus on your maximum effort,” or “Give beyond what is required,” or “Everyone loves a person who does his very best.”  Because of Dad’s insistence I think all of us embrace doing our very best in everything we do.
