    Chance’s Chance

      In your paper you have had a couple of articles on Chance, the husky. I am the lucky person who got the incredible opportunity of bringing him into his new forever home. He is a remarkable dog and is doing great. If you did not know his story, you would never know that he is blind. As I write this letter, he is asleep at my feet.

    Too much tax

    When we first moved to La Grange almost six years ago, I stopped by Kroger’s to buy a six-pack of beer to share with the movers after they had finished moving all the furniture into our new home. I was surprised to find not only did they not sell beer, but no one else in La Grange did either. Wow. What kind of a place did we move to?

    Questioning land purchase

    I read in the recent Oldham Era that the Oldham County Board of Education recently purchased two tracts of land (a total of 6.57 acres) in Buckner for $180,030. This is the same Board that claimed to be short on funds and increased taxes on Oldham County residents. Their claim then was that the money was needed for teacher pay increases and school operations.

  • Letter to the editor: Thanks to DDL volunteers

    As the Executive Director of Discover Downtown La Grange, I wanted to take a moment to thank the community leaders, first responders, Public Works, sponsors and volunteers for sharing their holiday time to come together for Light Up La Grange. They worked so hard putting it all together. For me personally, I feel very blessed to have worked with such a great crew of helpers. And wow — what an amazing turnout!

  • Letter to the editor: Light up La Grange

    First let me say that this is something I have never done, but certainly have been tempted when reading letters to the editor. Somehow I have always restrained myself and moved on. But not this time. “Disappointed in Light Up” had to be addressed and a “colossal disappointment” really could not go without saying something.

    Disappointed in Light Up

  • Letter to the Editor: Dec. 11

    I would like to thank Discover Downtown La Grange Main Street and its Board of Directors for the lovely evening it provided for Light Up La Grange and in particular Donna Sabo for leading the way and her tireless efforts under difficult circumstances this year.

    Michael and Vonnie Glover did another fabulous job again this year putting up the lighting. Countless people came out to enjoy the festive occasion and welcome Santa back for the 27th year to our city.

    Pay your bill

    I wish to make a few comments about the front-page article in last week’s Oldham Era regarding the business owner who refuses to pay his business license fee.

    I work in the City of La Grange and am subject to the city’s occupational tax. This results in my having to pay the city hundreds of dollars per year. Let me reiterate and capitalize for emphasis: HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS.
