    County attorney candidate's reputation stands alone

    To the editor:

    This is a first for me, after 44 years in La Grange, my first letter to the editor.

    I applaud the nine members of the Oldham County Republican Executive Committee in their selection of John K. Carter to replace the late John Fendley as a candidate for Oldham County attorney in the November election.

    As the only local attorney who has worked with every county attorney from George Williamson in 1966 to John Fendley in 2010, I endorse John Carter without reservation.

    GOP picks favorites? Not a surprise

    To the editor:

    A bird’s eye view locally (or nationally) of what is wrong with political parties was brilliantly reported by L. Hagan’s article, “GOP’s selection process under fire,” The Oldham Era, July 22.

    The fiefdom of Oldham has had power-fiction by a tiny faction of the Republican Party for decades.

  • Words of advice for this year’s graduates

     Four years and one month ago I graduated from college. Four years before that, I graduated from high school.

  • Dedicating our spiritual gifts to god

     Perhaps the most talented church the apostle Paul started was in Corinth. This church had the most talented preachers and most enlightened teachers. Like Paul, we would expect a church like this to succeed, but the Corinthians split their church into factions, with the preachers and teachers grabbing their followers. 

  • You are blessed: act like it

     A billion children went to sleep hungry last night. People in the world lost family members yesterday whom they adored. There are people in our own community dying of cancer and AIDS. I just read about a little girl who was born without a face – just two eyes and a mouth. And we worry about traffic being heavy on the way to work.
