  • 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.

    Community thanks Irish Rover

     We wanted to express our appreciation to Siobhan and Michael Reidy for their service and business to LaGrange at the Irish Rover Too. 

  • Mayor corrects ‘misinformation’

    As Mayor of the City of LaGrange, I write to correct the misinformation spread through the editorial letters of this newspaper recently.  First, I have taken full responsibility for a $12,000 mistake that was made deducting a 5% cut in employee health insurance benefits and I have explained how that occurred.  The buck stops with me on this and attacks on the City Clerk are unwarranted.  Any questions, call me at City Hall:  222-1433. 

  • Police report no issues with Ironman

    On August 25, 2013 the annual Ironman event was once again held and was a smooth successful event. The Oldham County Police received no reports of vandalism or Criminal Mischief and made no arrests in conjunction with the event. The Ironman and the Louisville Sports Commission were very accommodating in the planning, preparation and execution of the event.

  • Tax benefits possible for rural landowners

    As part of a tax bill negotiated in January of this year, Congress extended until December 31 the enhanced tax benefit that helps all of us who are interested in protecting working family farms, clean water and natural areas. The law enhances the federal tax benefits for landowners who donate voluntary conservation agreements to organizations like Shelby Area Rural Conservation, Inc. These agreements also provide a win-win solution for protecting natural resources important to the community while keeping land in productive private ownership.
