  • Make your vote count

    In response to comments made regarding the La Grange City tax, I would like to put my 1% in! I do not live in the La Grange City limits but unfortunately work within the city limits. However I do live in Oldham County.

    When we vote for elected officials such as President, Senators,etc., we vote for who we think will do the best for us as citizens of the United States. I have that right and I am very thankful for that.

  • Regulations cripple business

    La Grange city council recently passed new consumer fireworks regulations and fees.  The reason cited was that state law now allows more and larger devices to be used.  This reason is disingenuous at best and dishonest at worst.  

  • County’s Drug Take Back a Big Success

    An effort by the Oldham County Sheriff’s Department and the Oldham County Police on October 26th to remove prescription drugs from circulation in Oldham County was a big success.

     In partnership with the DEA, the agencies took in a combined eighty three pounds of unused and expired prescription drugs, pills, liquids and creams. Three hundred used and unused syringes were also turned in.

  • Conservationists in Action

    In a year when the monarch butterfly population is at its’ lowest in history, it was doubtful I would have been able to offer the Monarch Butterfly Program to area school children without the help of some very giving individuals. 

  • Cautionary Tale
  • Disappointed with coverage

    I am sorely disappointed in the coverage that these papers have given to our local school’s marching bands lately!

    We have three high schools in our county, two of these high schools have competition marching bands.  

    Do you realize what these remarkable young people in our county accomplish?  

    Do you understand the hours of practice,the number of hot days of band camp in the summer or the dedication that these youths devote to this pursuit?

  • Fishing Derby a Success

    The LaGrange Police Department hosted its annual Kid’s Fishing Derby this weekend on Saturday, October 5.  Several people have asked me what we were hoping to accomplish by hosting such an event.  Our responsibility to the public is not only to enforce laws and educate citizens about the law, but more importantly, to be a part of the community. Our goal was to encourage positive interactions with police officers and to provide a family-friendly environment in which parents could spend time with their children in a safe and fun setting.

  • Letter to the Editor

    What is this? Let’s pick on the mayor month? Give it a rest.

    I feel that Bill Lammlein was voted into a mess. The former mayor certainly did not leave the city all tidy and up to date. There was a lot of unfinished business that the mayor had to wade through and figure out the best way he could. Papers were missing, computers gone, along with furniture.

    The Oldham Reserve was dumped into his lap. No one had asked him anything about this. It was not bought on his watch.

  • Family concerned for trapped bird

    My mother lives in LaGrange. She and my sister discovered that a bird is trapped in the building that used to be the Save A Lot.

    They have called everyone they could think of and nobody (that answered their phones)is willing to do anything to get that bird out of that building.

    My sister is extremely upset. I’m just angry. What is it going to take for people to get their compassion back?

    Nobody cares anymore about their neighbors, kids or animals. Nobody cares.
