  • 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.

  • Year In Review: Judge-Executive takes a look back at 2011

    There are multiple ways to measure success. As your judge-executive, however, the primary method I use to gauge success is customer satisfaction. Are the citizens of Oldham County pleased with how their county government has function this year? I hope so.

  • COLUMN: Can cell phone threat improve public health?

    Doctors need to stay “connected” as part of our job. We need to be available for our patients, hospital staff and families.

    In the past, I remember lugging around an inconvenient bundle of a cell phone, pager, Palm Pilot and keys everywhere I went. But now, thanks to technology, it’s all on my smartphone.

    So imagine my surprise when I heard that a World Health Organization panel classified cell phones as “possibly carcinogenic.”
