    FOP Forum

    I saw an ad in the Oldham Era recently about an open meeting and attended the Fraternal Order of Police question and answer forum at the community center on the evening of Feb. 10.

    The meeting I attended must have been different for the one described in a letter to the paper by Bobbie Nelson. She said Judge Voegele acted like a bully. I didn’t see anything of the kind. He acted fine, but did object when the FOP leader said there would be no television cameras allowed, which I thought was the right thing to do.

    Since long before I was elected Mayor, the City of LaGrange has required that every business purchase a business license if they transact business in the city limits. The revenue generated from this fee helps pay for the services that residents and businesses rely upon. It isn’t contingent upon whether a business maintains an office here or whether the business was conducted in the city on a single day or every single day of the year. No one is singled out, no one pays a higher or lower rate because of the particular business they are in.

    When county government is running smoothly and there are no real issues to talk about in an election campaign, the only choice apparently left for opponents is mudslinging and character assassination.

    A letter in last week’s Oldham Era from Bobbie Nelson accused me of acting like a bully in public, at fiscal court meetings seen on Channel 25 and at a recent meeting of the local Fraternal Order of Police.

    On Feb. 25 the Oldham Planning and Zoning Commission held an important hearing on the request from Walmart to build a superstore in Crestwood. Time was given to both those who approved of the store and those who opposed the store.

    Friday night I witnessed a powerful event at the North Oldham High School basketball game. The manager of their team has been with them for six years. Tee Salinas is now a senior. Tee, who has Down syndrome, takes pride in all his duties involved in managing the team. To Tee the basketball team is an extended family.

    His coach Chris Stobaugh is quoted as saying “he is one of us.” Tee is included, accepted and very comfortable in being a member of the team.

  • Letter to the Editor: Pastor speaks on cell tower

    As the pastor of Salem Assembly of God, a church that has served the community for over forty years, I have remained silent for the past few months regarding the proposed cell tower, which AT&T has now cancelled. During this time I have declined newspaper and television interviews believing that it was in the best interest of the church. As a pastor, it is one of my duties to protect the integrity of the church; a church made up of wonderful people from across Oldham County and Pewee Valley.

    Mayor says thanks

    Helping hand

    I’d like to thank the people who helped me last Friday. On that day, I was taking the garbage out when I fell at my dumpster. A La Grange city bus which comes through my complex stopped when it saw I had fell and everyone on board came out and helped me. All four people on the bus, included the driver, stayed with me while help came. I just wanted to publicly thank them whole heartedly. I really appreciate them.
