  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  •  “Construction causes the problem, developers should pay.”

  • Holiday lights were beautiful

    To the editor:

    Thank you, City of La Grange!

  • Eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York’s The Sun in 1897, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21 of that year. 

  • Apparently I’m a year older than Santa.

    At least, that’s what a 5-year-old implied when during an interview, I asked how old a group of kindergartners thought Santa was. One little boy said 23. Who knew? I sure didn’t. But I have to say, even though I’m older than Santa, I feel pretty good for my age.

    Hunter calls editorial cartoon a 'cheap shot'

    To the editor:

     

  • We first told you about The Oldham Era’s news blog in the Nov. 13 edition, and since then, I’ve appreciated the community’s response. 

    The site has many functions we don’t currently offer at OldhamEra.com, a Web site created by our parent company, Landmark Community Newspapers Inc., based in Shelbyville.
