Today's Opinions

  • SUPERINTENDENT: Oldham students, teachers excel

    Navigating information put out about schools is not easy. In these days of high-stakes accountability, there are many indicators of quality and effectiveness that may be considered. 

    We are, and always have been, a district that celebrates our successes. We are also a district that is focused on managing by facts. 

  • CARTOON: Way too serious
  • LETTER: Does health department’s addition bring added services?

    To the editor:
    I am wondering if someone could specifically state all that the Oldham County Health Department does for our area in order to justify the large addition to the facility on Commerce Parkway.
    Our mayor, Bill Lammlein, is looking for tax money to pay down the loan on the land in Oldham Reserve, however, I haven’t seen anything about where the money is coming from in order to enlarge the health department, nor what additional services they will be providing.

  • PUBLISHER: Community is more than a word

    Community is a word too often thrown around without much thought to its meaning in regard to the human element it connects.
    NBC television launched a sitcom called “Community” to parody the humor of small town America and the typecast personalities often found among elected officials, neighbors and local businesses.
    It seems to me that the rest of the fast-moving “big world” defines community as a thing of lore or of some black and white rerun of a fictional Mayberry.

  • SUPERINTENDENT: 2012-13 school year off to a great start

    The 2012-13 school year is off to a great start. We are into our first full month of school and we are pleased with the smooth beginning to what promises to be a successful and exciting school year. 

    The professionals at every level of our organization are to be commended for the hard work and attention to detail that resulted in a tremendously smooth opening of school this year. 

  • LETTER: ‘Massie acts as if he already has the job’

    To the editor:
    On Nov. 6, the now-vacant 4th District Congressional seat previously held by Congressman Geoff Davis will be on the ballot twice – once to fill the remainder of U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis’ term, and again for the next full congressional term.
    There is much discussion in the media about apathy and disinterest among voters, and the best way to engage them in the upcoming election is to offer opportunities to attend and participate in a live debate on the issues, particularly in an open seat where little or nothing is known about either candidate.

  • LETTER: Oldham County's horn of plenty is empty

    To the editor:
    In November 1959, Kentucky voted in a 3 percent sales tax to cover veterans’ bonuses and schools.
    Now, the sales tax is 6 percent. Then the lottery was going to end tax increases for schools. Jefferson County just voted in a hefty tax increase, and I expect  Oldham County will follow suit because we will need new schools in 50 years on the gold-plated property they just bought.
