  • Food pantry
  • 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.

  • Quilting event made a success by community contributions

    To the editor:

    Oldham County is a wonderful place to have a small business!!

    The Gathering Room Quilt Shop chose to participate in the Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge benefiting ALS (Lou Gherig’s Disease) this year.

    The support of my customers and friends along with the local businesses made it possible for us to reach our goal of donating over 100 quilts for this worthwhile cause. What a proud day it was when we drove to Virginia Beach, VA to deliver 127 completed quilts along with a monetary donation in July.

  • United we stand, divided we fall

    I’ve always loved our Kentucky state motto, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” The sight of people from different races and countries, on the street or on TV, is my cue to practice unity. Listening to all the voices in a choir blending together, I am reminded of the glory of unity. When I collaborate with my colleagues on a project, I vow to devote all my God-given talents to promote unity. For we all have the same color bones.

  • Anonymous letter won't shake veteran's patriotism

    To the editor:

    In the late 1960s and early 1970s, thousands of young men and women returned to the United States after having served our country in the Vietnam War.

    It turned out to be the war everyone wanted to forget – except those of us who fought there.

    Most of us were 17 to 22 years old, more than 8,000 miles from home and scared to death ... We prayed, we fought, we bled and some died. But we did as we felt we were expected to do, and none of us came home the same as when we left.
