  • Letter to the Editor Dec. 5

    After reading the article “School Board Approves New Boundaries” in The Oldham Era, I was reminded of the last election. The voters had a chance to rid themselves of four of the school board vermin, including the ring leader and chose not to. Thankfully, I no longer have children in the system. My only involvement now is to pay thieving amounts to fund it. I absolutely have no sympathy for the negatively impacted of us as we had our chance to change things and did not take it.

    City can’t interfere

    After reading the article in Nov. 7 EraI could not believe what was written about the power Pewee Valley claims over the cell tower installation by the Salem Assembly of God church at 209 LaGrange Road.

  • Sport neglected

    Well just as I expected. Oldham County had two middle school cross country teams that won at state and there was only a small mention and the teams were labeled wrong. Not a big surprise.

    Oldham County had close to 400 runners compete at Masterson Station Park on Oct. 26 with over 400 runners in some races. Our athletes represented Kentucky and our county against some 3,000 runners from across the state and The Era can’t even distinguish between a boys team and a girls team.

  • Veterans at risk
  • 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?
