Today's Opinions

  • Publisher's anniversary brings a question

    As I stroll from business to business or simply shop at a local store, I find it warming that readers notice I’ve been in Oldham County for a year now.

    I find myself answering the same question, happily I might add, that stems from my first year as the publisher of The Oldham Era.

    “How do you like it?”

    Well, I’ve embraced my new home as well as my job. Although my out-of-state move from Indiana to Kentucky felt more like a cliff jump, I must say I like Oldham a great deal.

  • Year in Review: District 3 Magistrate Bob Leslie

    Citizens of Oldham County:

    In my years as magistrate, I have been Chairman of the Environmental, Parks and Public Safety Committees. I have voted against all tax increases and advocated for reduction in indebetedness. 

    I gave my first years to various groups through out the community. The Friends of Westport was started through this grant. I was a board member for Tri-County Community Action Agency for eight years. 

  • Year in Review: District 8 Magistrate Michael Logsdon

    First, let me start by saying it has been a pleasure serving my constituents of District 8 and the people of Oldham County. It’s truly been a wonderful year and I want to thank you.

    I have learned a lot over the past year, serving on three committees, answering countless phone calls and meeting with constituents. 

  • Year in Review: District 7 Magistrate Bob Dye

    To the citizens of Oldham County:

    As my first year as Magistrate draws to a close, I would like to say thank you to everyone that assisted me in becoming a productive public servant. This past year has flown by!

    Other than my duties on fiscal court, I have attended several workshops and conferences. I have learned a great deal, but there is a great deal yet to learn. 

  • Year in Review: District 6 Magistrate Kevin Eldridge

    This first year has flown by. I truly appreciate those of you who have contacted me. We have not always agreed but we have worked toward forging relationships that will move our county forward. I want to also thank the judge-executive’s staff as well as the other county employees. They have done the day-to-day hard work that it takes to make this county run as smoothly as it does.

  • Year in Review: District 5 Magistrate JD Sparks

    Citizens of Oldham County:

     It has really been a great year serving as your magistrate in District 5. I am not sure I was fully prepared for the range of issues that we as a court would face in the new year. 

    I had hoped to be able to make much more radical changes in some ways but feel that things are very much headed in the right direction in our county. 

  • Year in Review: District 4 Magistrate Steve Greenwell

    To the citizens of Oldham County:

    I want to take this opportunity at year’s end to thank you for the opportunity to serve as your elected representative on fiscal court. 

    It truly is a humbling experience and one that I don’t take lightly. 

  • Year in Review: District 2 Magistrate Wayne Theiss

    As the first year of the new administration draws to a close, I would like to reflect on the many achievements that have been accomplished.

    The Buckner Mall has been eliminated, making way for a new turning lane.

    Several new businesses have been established and the aesthetic of Buckner, the heart of Oldham County, is constantly being improved.
