  • 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.

  • 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.

  • LETTER:Gernstein has been loyal to GOP, should maintain post

    To the editor:
    Within the last two or three months there has appeared in the “Curious Journal,” Oldham Neighborhood section, articles extremely critical of our County GOP chief.

  • LETTER:GOP chair shouldn’t be immune to questions of ethics during elections

    To the editor:

  • 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.
