Today's Opinions

  • Appreciating locally grown produce

    Attack of the killer tomatoes, cilantro and jalapenos under siege and a handful of other salmonella scares are reminding me to appreciate locally grown produce at its peak.

    And to avoid salsa. Yikes.

    This time of year, there’s nothing tastier than herbs and vegetables fresh from local soil.

  • Sewer district responds to coverage

    After reading the article and editorial in the June 26 Oldham Era concerning the Oldham County Sewer District, I wanted to clear up some misunderstandings about OCSD’s finances and options for the future.

    Here are some facts about the Oldham County Sewer District:

    • Our last rate increase was in 2005. Over the past three years almost every expense associated with our business has increased.

  • Freedom only a new bike brings

    There’s only one thing that could make me feel as free as an 8-year-old with a new bike.

    Only one thing that can recall the days of freedom, sweet freedom. Days of, who cares if I don’t have a ride to the pool or to Bryan’s house to jump on the trampoline. That’s allright, I’m mobile. I’m free to go anywhere I want in the whole world whenever I want, provided my mom lets me and it’s within five miles.

  • KKK's method unfair

    Sometimes I struggle with my deep-seeded belief that everyone has the right to the freedom of speech and expression.

    That struggle intensified July 8 when the first of what would be several readers called to tell me our newspaper had been dropped in her driveway with a flier enclosed promoting the Ku Klux Klan.

  • Getting the county's financial house in order

    A year ago, a group of 20 Oldham Countians, called the vision council, delivered to us a well-thought-out document described as a roadmap for the future of Oldham County. Six months ago, fiscal court adopted that document as a guideline. But there is an oft-quoted statement (Congressman Hal Rogers may be the original author) that says, “A vision without financing is a hallucination.”

  • Letters to the editor

    HDB appreciates local support

    To the editor:

  • Common sense growth: It shouldn't be an oxymoron in Oldham

    We’re relieved this week to say the Oldham County Planning and Zoning Commission once again denied a subdivision proposal that won’t go away.
