    Two stories

    Two weeks ago I read in The Oldham Era that the school Superintendent could not manage and needed another increase in taxes. School systems seem to have a hard time finding capable managers. The next time you have an increase in expenses just go to your boss and tell him/her that you are just going to have to start taking from the company. It works for the school superintendent.

  • Letter to the Editor: Fixing Interstate 71

    So what are the residents of Oldham County supposed to do about the problems on Highway 71 north and south? This is the question people are asking themselves on a daily basis.

    No tax increase

    Same story again this year. Oldham County Schools needs more money so it increases taxes. I wouldn’t mind if the school district would use some other measures first before asking Oldham County property owners to pay more.

    Why doesn’t the district sell off some of the vacant land that they have acquired over the years? It’s my understanding that they own property next to the now closed Liberty Elementary. It was purchased with our tax dollars to build a replacement school but the school board has now changed their mind.

    It is unfortunate that people had an accident and were hurt and killed, but I disagree with my fellow Oldham County residents’ opinions in the article that say the intersection of 53 and Old Sligo Road ‘has become too dangerous.’ That’s ridiculous. It’s no more or less dangerous than it ever was.

    “Remember the time” is a fitting theme for the 2014 Oldham County Day Festivities. Celebrating 50 years of anything is a big deal.

    Project Guild of La Grange is celebrating 50 years as an organization in Oldham County. Eighteen women from every part of Oldham County get together monthly to hold on to the legacy of the fourteen women who founded the organization in 1964.

    Appreciative of Sparks

    I met JD Sparks on Oldham County Day several years ago when he offered to carry my fold up lawn chairs, without their cover, which is difficult, about two blocks from my van to the Oldham County Republican Women’s Club booth and also carried them back at the end of the day. JD Sparks has always volunteered to help all year-round with projects that benefit the community, the Republican Party and many other groups, such as the veterans.

    Cookout warning

    Folks setting to break out their outdoor grill soon face a deadly choice of inflicting food poisoning or cancer on their family and friends.

    Food poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, if they undercook their meat. Cancer – if they heat their meat to the point of creating cancer-causing compounds.

    Thank you to Baptist Health

    My husband was admitted to Baptist Hospital Northeast in La Grange on Dec. 10, 2013 for congestive heart failure. He spent six days in the hospital. I’m writing this letter to let you know how wonderful we were treated during his stay.

    The doctors, nurses, aides, lab and x-ray technicians and cafeteria staff were outstanding. They were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and acted in a professional manner at all times. The dietician spent a lot of time with me, planning a future diet for my husband.
