Oldham County Airport

Yesterday I was reading an article in Business First that spoke about the troubled times Bowman Field in Louisville was experiencing. Here is a link for those of you interested – Turbulent Times

This got me to thinking about my experience at Oldham County Day. I will be the first to admit that I do not know enough about Oldham County’s exploration of an airport. Good or bad. Which is something I’m working on researching now. When I make a decision, I like to have as much information as possible and be read up on the good, the bad, and the ugly from both sides. Which is why it irked me that the No Oldham Airport folks wanted me to sign a petition on the spot.

I give zero fault to them for trying, but I wasn’t signing up on the sidewalk. Bonus points to them for being organized, presenting an argument in under 20 seconds and standing there in 95 degree heat. However, I’m not the type who will make a decision in under 20 seconds… especially when the decision has so much data on both sides of the fence to be reviewed. Maybe, I’m to blame. Maybe, I should have already reviewed some data and taken a position by now. Last I checked though, the data was still coming in. How am I supposed to make a decision without ALL the facts?

Hopefully I’m not the only one who is still on the fence and waiting for more details. How many of you are just against the IDEA of the airport all together? Give me a shout, I want to hear from other residents.

Oldham County Newspaper

I'm often asked "What is Oldham County Wired?" The easiest answer, is that Oldham County Wired is an online newspaper.
