  • Endorsement for Massie

    Thomas Massie: The man for the job

    When they find themselves in Washington among 434 other lawmakers looking to be heard, members of Congress either emerge as leaders who remain true to the people for their districts and who others follow, or they end up as run-of-the-mill politicians who simply go along to get along.

  • Letter of withdrawal

    My name is Howard Roberts and I am a candidate for the Pleasureville City Commission. At this time, I am, regrettably, withdrawing from the upcoming election. I wish to thank all the people who supported me, and explain the reason for my withdrawal.

    A question was raised about my eligibility to run for the city commission. It was argued that I had not lived in the city long enough. The law says that a candidate must live in the city limits one-year prior to the election date.

  • Cook's cares

    Let me add to the comments regarding the proposed CVS Pharmacy for Eminence and the impact on Cook’s  long’ time establishment in Henry County.  A small bit of information amid volumes of rhetoric written in the past few months.  Not to even express an opinion as to the validity of a new business in Henry County, but to inform the public as to the character of the existing one.

  • Here’s what we expect from Courtney Baxter

    In the Sept. 27 edition of the Oldham Era, a candidate for Commonwealth Attorney ran an ad regarding local attorneys’ support of Courtney Baxter for Commonwealth Attorney. The candidate asks, in his ad, “What do they expect to receive in return?” As past-president and 30-year member of the local bar association, the former head of the Public Defenders Office, contributing member of the committee that wrote the local rules for civil and criminal practice, and Courtney Baxter support, I can answer that question.

    We expect:

  • Customers very pleased with Cook’s

    Dear Sirs:
    This is in response to a letter to the editor on Sept. 26.
    Having been in small business all my working life I have a special affection for it.
    We have found Cook’s store to be the epitome of small business. Cook’s employees have always been courteous and caring — something very special in this fast paced world.

  • Kentucky quells housing market crisis

    One of the most devastating aspects of the economic crisis that began gripping the country in 2007 was the effect it had on the housing market.
    While Kentucky did not experience the widespread declines felt mainly by states along the coasts, we were far from unscathed.  According to the state’s Administrative Office of the Courts, there have been more than 80,000 foreclosures over the last five years, and tens of thousands more households are just getting by or are “underwater,” meaning their mortgage is more than their home is now worth.
