Opinion

  • Developers, not residents, should pay utility fee

  • For most of us, when we leave our jobs we drive home in one of our two cars to a comfortable home. We turn on one of our many TV sets or radios and listen to news telling us just how bad the economy has become.

  •  It was a couple of years ago that then Oldham Era general manager Julie Satterly encouraged me to write my first column for the paper. 

  • Glad airport won’t come to OC

    To the editor:

    Thank you, Oldham County for voting against the airport. I was so relieved to see that this peaceable community decided to take a stand on disturbing the peace.

    After living in Louisville the better part of my life, I moved to Oldham County in 2004. The beautiful countryside, the birds, the few farms that are left were wonderful. But more importantly was the peace and serenity that seems to abide here. 

  • Five, six, pick up sticks. Seven, eight, how long can we wait? 

  • Reader questions The Era’s inauguration coverage

  •  I have a love-hate relationship with being a server. 

    I’ve worked in restaurants off and on since I was 16, as a hostess, a food runner and when I was old enough, a server. I worked during breaks in college and it was my full-time job the summer after I graduated from college and looked for a job as a reporter.

  •  After nearly seven long years to the day, the Oldham County Planning Commission has an opportunity to advance the county’s comprehensive plan, Outlook 2020, as envisioned back in February 2002. 

    On Feb. 24, the Planning Commission will consider the first of eight area masters plans called for in Outlook 2020. The Brownsboro Area Master Plan will be presented to the commission for approval. 

  • DAVIS: Former judge-exec should rescind comments

    To the editor:

    An Oldham County Circuit Court judge recently issued a decision regarding a civil lawsuit I filed against Judge-Executive Duane Murner.

  • I’m one of those people. You know the ones. You work with us, and our president is one of us. We come from places north of here and like to try to impress you with stories of snow over our heads or -50-degree days — emphasis on the negative sign — or that we never had a single day off school for snow regardless of how many feet of snow fell the day before.

    So you can probably see where this is going.

  • Airport is a development issue

    To the editor:

    The people have spoken! The airport is dead! All that remains is fiscal court officially signing the death certificate. But I wonder if that decision is short-sighted. This whole process was not about an airport but was truly a future development issue. 

  • Court should dissolve airport board

    To the editor:

  •  How would Oldham County benefit from a general aviation airport?

  • Ernie Harris, State Senator

  • It’s school board recognition month

    To the editor:

  • Waking to a thin blanket of snow Monday morning, I sure was glad the deer had left my front lawn this weekend, and took with it the lights, garland and ribbons. Though they hadn’t been illuminated since Jan. 3, I’m pretty sure I was the last house in my neighborhood to put away Christmas this year.

    Yes, here I am talking about Christmas decorations in the third full week in January.

  • Bertha Mae West Miller, 96, died Sunday, Jan. 11, 2009, at Oaklawn.

    She was a native of Elizabethtown, and a member of the Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church.

    She was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Herman Miller, and a sister, Pearl Detenber.

  • Don’t request (or promise) anonymity for donation

    To the editor:

    I must respond to John Black’s letter in the Jan. 8 edition trashing two fine residents.

  • To the editor:

    We now know local businessman George Rawlings is the benefactor of $100,000 anonymous donations to Oldham County Fiscal Court and $100,00 to the City of La Grange.
