  • LETTER: Weather conditions caused a panic

    To the editor:
    Can we go back to the days when a tornado watch meant that conditions were favorable for a tornado, and a tornado warning meant there was an actual tornado on the ground?
    Now, every time when there is a dark cloud coming over the local area, the tornado sirens are going off and the media and meteorologists are panicking.

  • COLUMN: Parting is such sweet sorrow

    The time has come, to say goodbye...
    Sorry. I realize the headline and that first line of this column are stolen from someone who’s said it before – Shakespeare and the Mickey Mouse Club, naturally.
    But it’s procrastination, delaying the inevitable, which is telling you all that I’m leaving this newspaper, just one week from today.

  • LETTER:Farmers' market is a benefit to the county

    To the editor:
    Our farmers’ market at the courthouse square is a benefit to La Grange and Oldham County.
    People are courteous and sociable. A visit to the market is like stepping back into a kinder, gentler, more simple time. A wonderful experience.
    Like all good things, the market is changing and not for the better.

  • Bloom where you're planted

    A  fine young man came to see me recently with a problem that is almost universal. When he was a youth he dreamed of a specific career, but circumstances barred him from the job on which his heart had been set. Now he is disappointed and feels cheated.
    He wanted to be a doctor, but he did not have the money necessary for his education, and had to quit school and go to war. Now his chance to be a doctor is gone and he is filled with regret. There are a lot of people who have not been able to do the things their hearts were once set on doing.
