Upbeat Tidbits...

Just a few random short thoughts for today...

I'd like to commend Magistrates Steve Church, Steve Greenwell and David Voegele (the members of the Fiscal Court Finance Committee) for their recent meeting with representatives of the Oldham County School Board regarding the annual $200,000 Dynegy payment to the school system. Magistrate Church reported back to Fiscal Court at the April 7, 2009 meeting that after their discussion with the school system folks, they could all support proceeding with authorizing the annual payment to the school system. Magistrate Church did an excellent job in explaining the circumstances to the Court and public, and for this, he should be commended.

Without going into all of the details, it's refreshing to see that an honest attempt was made to look out for the finances of county government. Credit to Magistrate Voegele for raising the issue and for their time in doing the necessary legwork to legitimize the financial arrangement and bringing to light the details for all to see. Wouldn't it be nice if Fiscal Court operated more like this all of the time?

I'll have more to post soon regarding the following items:
The lawsuit payment discussion...call it Voegele vs S. Davis
The recent PVA advertisement in the Oldham Era
The Oldham County government website
The misguided alarm ordinance

It's Thunder Over Louisville weekend...hope all that attend enjoy themselves and have a safe and happy time on the riverfront...what a showcase for our entire region.

Finally, to my parents...congratulations on your 50th Wedding Annivesary today !

Have a great weekend everybody.
