  • Letters to the editor March 13

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Letter to the Editor: Resident upset over Crestwood Walmart

    As a resident of Madison Park Condominiums, among the many reasons I had chosen to live at this particular location were as follows: overall aesthetics of our facilities, proximity to Highway 71, significant open space areas, peace and tranquility of the neighborhood environment, low-to-no crime, ease of movement and low traffic congestion to name a few.
