    Time to abolish the La Grange Historic District

    To the editor:

    The confusion about the new parks department sign in front of city hall honoring the late James Beaumont has brought into sharp focus the question of whether to dissolve or radically change the mission and authority of the La Grange Historic District.  

  • Remembering why we’re free

    ’ve spent the past two Memorial Days the same way. Both years, I’ve headed to La Grange to attend – and photograph – the county’s annual Memorial Day service, honoring those who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom in the armed forces.

    I’ve listened as the names are read of the soldiers who have lost their lives fighting in our country’s wars. I’ve watched as veterans stand to salute the flag as the Oldham County Community Band plays a medley of each song representing the armed forces.

    Not all dogs are safe, friendly   To the editor: This letter is in support of the La Grange Post Master Donna Brown and her excellent letter regarding dog bites. I would like to add to her information by encouraging residents to notify Oldham County Animal Control of problem dogs before there is a bite. This agency tries to work with dog owners to educate them as to correct and acceptable methods of dog training. Once a dog has bitten we are all faced with serious decisions.

    Foreclosures should be counted in PVA’s assessments   To the editor: In an article in the Courier-Journal dated April 11, we learn that the Jefferson County PVA has lowered assessments on more than 26,000 homes, citing widespread foreclosures and depressed housing prices. The Jefferson County PVA went on to cite a lack of home sales in the open market meant that new assessments were based largely on the price of homes sold in foreclosure.
