  • Rating change may equal discounts for some owners

    Property owners in the North Oldham Fire Protection District might soon enjoy a discount on their insurance rates, thanks to a revised ISO rating.

    ISO (Insurance Services Office) is a nation-wide subscription service that most insurance companies  use for establishing premiums for fire insurance based all or in part on the “Property Protection Class” (PPC) rating.  A PPC of “1” is the best you can get and a PPC of “10“ would typically be assigned to areas without any fire protection at all. 

  • Ordinance addresses abandoned homes

    In an effort to make the city of La Grange safer and more appealing, the city council adopted a new ordinance regarding abandoned properties.

    Any creditor or lender will now be responsible for maintaining the appearance of any abandoned house. If the lender does not want to deal with upkeep they can turn the house over to the city. The new ordinance is designed to create a more complete listing of abandoned properties in La Grange.

    This new law can’t be put into effect soon enough for Pat Giles, who lives next to an abandoned house in Washington Manor.

  • Preserve summer bounty by pickling

    As mankind learned to grow food, the notion that we could preserve it for future use was not far off. 

    The earliest pickles were produced by salting. People discovered that salting food in urns and pots, then burying the vessels caused the production of brine. The brine added flavor and acted as a preservative.
