  • Passing the cash

    WAVE 3’s own Dawne Gee was in La Grange Monday for the channel’s Pass the Cash give away.

    For those not familiar with the giveaway, Gee takes $300 with her and asks locals for help giving the money away to someone who really needs it. The only rule is that he or she can’t be a relative.

    Shannon Pottie, owner of a local restaurant in La Grange, saw Gee and her sign and instantly thought of one of her employees.

  • Church cookbooks create spread of memories

    Over the years, I have amassed quite a collection of church cookbooks, starting with one handed down from my grandmother, all the way through last week when I purchased four from the church I now attend. 

    They are generally bound with black, plastic, binding combs. Although, some of the newer ones are in fancy three-ring binders, you know, in case you get crazy with a hole-punch and decide to add your own recipes.

  • 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. 

  • Ordinance addresses abandoned homes

    In an effort to make the city of La Grange safer and more appealing, the city council adopted a new ordinance regarding abandoned properties.

    Any creditor or lender will now be responsible for maintaining the appearance of any abandoned house. If the lender does not want to deal with upkeep they can turn the house over to the city. The new ordinance is designed to create a more complete listing of abandoned properties in La Grange.

    This new law can’t be put into effect soon enough for Pat Giles, who lives next to an abandoned house in Washington Manor.
