  • 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.

  • Super 8 thanked for its generosity

    To the editor:

    It is with great pleasure and pride that we are writing this letter. Pleasure because we are so happy to do so and with pride to know that we still have honest people in our country. My husband and I were on an automobile trip, returning from Cincinnati after visiting our ill daughter, we stopped at a Super 8 Motel in La Grange.

  • Today’s bullying goes far beyond the traditional school yard brawls depicted in television shows and movies. Incorporating technology, and now focusing more on female relational aggression, bullying has taken a new face in our schools. The Kentucky legislature has recently taken steps to create an awareness of bullying; Gov. Steve Beshear recently signed into law House Bill 91, better known as the Golden Rule Act, or the Anti Bullying Bill.
