Opinion

  • On Friday of this week, the Oldham-La Grange Development Authority and Talmage Hocker, president of The Hocker Group LLC, are expected to sign an agreement forming a partnership to develop the Oldham Reserve Business Campus. This will mark the first public/private partnership for both entities.

    Oldham Reserve is a 1,000-acre planned unit development located off of I-71 at exit 22 in La Grange. The campus will house a mixture of retail, office and residential uses.

  • We read in Psalm 119:8, “I will observe your statutes.” I like the Psalmist’s clear communication of what he “will” do. It is forceful and committed. “I will observe God’s statutes.” Notice he does not write, “I will try to observe God’s statutes.” “Try” is one of those words that we should tune our ear to so that when we use it, we question our commitment.

  •  Our Louisville MLS Report shows single family home sales from Jan. 1 to May 5, 2010,  and compares those sales to sales from Jan. 1 to May 5, 2009.

  • As the weather warms our minds naturally turn to thoughts of travel; whether it is to going to the beach or out of state to see family it is important for people with Diabetes to plan carefully when preparing for travel. With careful planning and a few special precautions you can ensure a trouble-free and enjoyable trip. When preparing for your trip it is recommended that you get a check-up.

  •  April was Organ Donor Awareness Month. As a recent heart recipient, I want to share the letter I sent to my donor family. I hope this touches your life and you will consider becoming an organ donor— a decision to give others a second chance at life.

  •  Exodus begins with a brief description of how the Egyptians, out of fear, forced the Hebrew people into slavery. In Exodus 1:8-11 it is written, “Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, ‘Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor.”

  •  Election Day is less than one week away. On Tuesday, the voters of Oldham County will be making some very important selections on some very important elected positions throughout this community. 

  •  In Exodus 20:4-6 it is written, “You shall not make for yourself an idol... for I, the Lord, your God, am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those that reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love and keep my commandments.” 

  • Officials lack vision for county’s future To the editor: I am disheartened by Oldham County officials’ lack of vision when it comes to the county’s future.  At a time when people in ever-increasing numbers are seeking out locally grown foods and a slower pace of life – attributes which still abound in Oldham County – our leadership is focused on stale planning models that are out of sync with current trends.

  • May is a month filled with occasions to display respect, duty, reverence and honor.

    National Day of Prayer is May 6; Armed Forces Day is May 15; Mother’s Day is May 8; the primary election is May 18 and Memorial Day is May 31.

    How encouraging to have Paula Gish running foreeOldham County judge-executive!ee

  • To the editor:

    This letter is written to strongly urge the re-election of John Fendley as Oldham County Attorney. John has an excellent record and an outstanding reputation. He has the even-handed, no-nonsense approach to problem solving so necessary to correctly fill this position.

    I admire and respect John. He is a man of honor and integrity. He is worthy of our trust and well qualified to serve. It is important that we all vote but, moreover, we need to vote for the best candidate. I sincerely believe the best man for the job is John Fendley.

    As the May 18 primary election approaches I am asking the electorate to vote Paula Gish for judge-executive. She is the only candidate with the necessary experience and proven leadership required of Oldham County’s next leader.

    Paula started serving this county in our schools as president of three PTAs.eeShe was then elected to fiscal court where she served the people of Goshen and Prospect for 11 years. Now, Paula is serving the entire county as deputy judge-executive.ee

    In the April 22 edition, The Oldham Era printed a big supplement entitled, “Best of Oldham County” which announced the winners of a local contest intended to identify reader favorites in a wide variety of categories.

  •  Dr. Robert McNeish wrote “Lessons from Geese” as part of a sermon in 1972. Since then it has been reprinted in many forms. I share these entertaining insights with Biblical thoughts to reflect upon. 

  • The pastor took his customary place at the back of the church to greet the Easter crowd. As usual, the crowd had swelled to fill the sanctuary.

    The pastor saw a friend whom he knew came to church only Christmas and Easter, and said, “Hi John, I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ since I probably won’t see you here again before that.”

    John muttered on the way home, “Won’t see me until Christmas! I’ll show him!”
