    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.

    Sign defacing

    It’s election time and political signs are being installed around the county and . . . the jerks are back. Who are these creeps? They are the ones who deface, pull-out and steal the signs.

    While having personally experienced the hoodlums in the past, it was disappointing to have seen two of Judge-Executive Voegele’s signs defaced. Since the vandals sneak around in darkness, like thieves in the night, only the result of their actions are seen.

    Support Bednarski

    I have known Jon for several years as a business man and served with him as a founding Board Member of the Oldham County Community Foundation. Jon understands the concerns of business owners in Oldham County and will be a great asset to Oldham County Fiscal Court as a Magistrate. Jon also understands the many needs in our county by having served on our Community Foundation Board and having lived here for over 28 years.

    Walmart issues

    “Westport Road” is coming to Crestwood! Even after numerous citizens spoke in opposition of rezoning allowing Walmart to build off the 329 By-Pass, both the Oldham County Planning Commission and the Crestwood City Commission, with a majority vote, passed the rezoning. Our voices were NOT heard! Countless reasons against this 24-7 Walmart Supercenter were shared, but it was obvious minds had already been made up.

    Support Voegele

    Since there are no Democrats who have filed to run for office, the Primary Election on May 20 will determine our county officials for the next four years.

    My choice for Oldham County Judge-Executive is David Voegele. There is no doubt in my mind he has done a good job and been an excellent public servant.

    There have been many accomplishments.

    Absentee Voting

    The Oldham County Clerk’s Office wants to take this opportunity to inform all voters of upcoming election information.

    For the upcoming election, I would like to remind the voters of their responsibility to make sure your address is correct in the Voter Registration Department in the Oldham County Clerk’s Office and what precinct you are to vote. If you have any questions, PLEASE call 222-0047 BEFORE Election Day.

    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.
