    Identity theft
    The recent mailing from the Oldham Chamber & Economic Development was a petition postcard to be printed and signed complete with birth date and Social Security number.
    This (these) cards could either be mailed or deposited in an Oldham County Library.
     Considering the current problems with identity theft, one thing we should absolutely never do is to put such private information in a public location.
    From the text on the card, this mailing apparently went to every registered voter in Oldham County.

  • Letters to the Editor: Snow Plows & RTW

    Snow plows

    I received an email regarding vehicles parked in the streets making it difficult for the road crews to plow the snow. I wish cars could be ticketed because in my neighborhood people constantly park on both sides of the street, making it difficult to even drive in between the cars, much less get a snow plow through! It’s one thing to have an occasional visitor park on the edge of the street, but residents should keep their cars in their driveways. How about a little write up in the paper?

  • Letters to the Editor: Thanks & RTW

     I would like to take a moment to thank some very generous hearts that have continually volunteered and gathered donations to assist in meeting the needs of those that are in crisis. Sumpatheo Services is a crisis intervention ministry ­— small — but reaching out in a big way for over six years to meet the challenges of those in crisis. 

  • Letters to the Editor: Right to Work

    Supporting RTW

    Last week, the Oldham County Fiscal Court started the process of passing a local Right to Work law for Oldham County. Like many county governments across the state, Oldham County is working to stand out among its peers and create opportunities that bring new jobs and new business to our community.

    This Right to Work ordinance is not a policy against unions. It does not eliminate or limit union representation. Most importantly, it does NOT keep union companies from considering Oldham County as a site for new business.

  • Letters to the Editor: No right to work

    This letter is concerning the so-called “right to work law.” Two weeks ago the Oldham County Fiscal Court was given a presentation by someone named Jim Waters who is the executive director of something called The Bluegrass Institute. There was an article in the Oldham Era covering this. I have several questions and concerns about this.

    Proud of the


    As everyone knows, on Sunday, Captain Adam Satterfield was laid to rest at Duncan Memorial Cemetery.

    There is not much most people can do for him or his family at this tragic time, but it was awesome to see so many men, women and children lining Floydsburg Road to show their love and respect for Captain Satterfield and his family. They were standing in bitter cold and rain.

    It truly makes me proud to be a part of this Oldham County Community. Thank you.

  • Tournament is a big hit

    Last week, North Oldham Little League hosted the Kentucky Little League Baseball State Tournament at Walsh Park in La Grange. 22 teams came from different areas of Kentucky and two from North Oldham Little League participated and competed for the state championships. Congratulations to our own 11-Year-Olds for winning the state championship.
    Every team and their fans from all over Kentucky got to experience what great facilities, the concession stand food and the great atmosphere at Walsh Park in La Grange that North Oldham Little League gets to experience everyday.

  • Time to defund Planned Parenthood

    Warning: graphic content and conversation here. No, this isn’t about Donald Trump’s latest insults, but rather a more serious subject that he doesn’t consider “one of his issues.” I’m talking about the sanctity of human life. More specifically, the undercover videos that caught Planned Parenthood officials discussing abortion extraction methods best suited to preserving in-demand fetal organs for research.
