  • Hear ye, hear ye. Be it known that “the 22nd day of January hereafter be observed as David Wark Griffith Day.”

    And so it has been since Wednesday, Jan. 22, 1975, in Oldham County when Judge Wendell Moore signed into affect a proclamation designating David Wark Griffith Day.

  • I want to have some fun and use math to discover just how much God loves us. Athletes like to talk in percentages about how much they give to help their team win. They talk about giving more than 100 percent, but is that even possible since 100 percent is as much as we can give? Does the same apply in everyday life?

    To help make my point I want to give every letter of the alphabet a point value with “A” getting one point and “Z” getting 26 points and the rest correspond to their place in the alphabet. What equals 100 percent in life?

  • A new job is music to Amy Love’s ears.

    The Prospect resident was recently hired by St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., to begin a music therapy program.

  • What does an angel look like? The most famous pair of angels is perhaps Santi Raphael’s cute pair of cherubs. Type in angels on Google and there is no end to the cute, white faced, pink cheeked, precious winged, little creatures that have been drawn. They make us happy. Isn’t that what angels are supposed to do?

    Danielle and Stephen Sauerbeck love a good scavenger hunt.

    So far, their love of such events has taken them to Chicago, Milwaukee, even Puerto Rico.

    That’s because the Sauerbeck’s participate in events similar to CBS’ The Amazing Race, which is a mix of scavenger hunts and travel, through two companies: Urban Race and Urban Dare.

  • Howls of praise will be ringing out this holiday season thanks to a local veterinary center.

    The “Joy to the Woof” program sponsored by the Pewee Valley Veterinary Center has created 25 care packages for military service dogs. In its second year, the program provides specialty gear like goggles and protective booties for the four-legged soldiers.

    “Unfortunately they are forgotten a lot of the time,” Carolyne Tilford, a veterinary technician at the center said. “They go through a lot, it’s not easy.”

    Oldham County History Center

    December is a time to make lasting memories and remember the ones we hold dear. We owe a great debt to our service men and women who cannot always be home with family during the holidays. Because of their protection we are able to live in a free country with family and friends to make memories that linger.

  • Pastor Joel Gregory tells the story of a seminary professor who taught the Christian graces of love and forbearance for forty years until he retired. Occupying himself in his retirement years, he poured a new concrete driveway to his house. Finished, he went in to rest and get a glass of iced tea. Returning later to view his proud achievement, he discovered that the neighborhood kids were putting their footprints in the wet concrete.

  • Grace and Glory Lutheran Church, Goshen, recently received a $5,000 “Lutheran Community Matthew 25: Neighbors in Need” grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.

    The funding was awarded to Grace and Glory’s Bread of Life Food Pantry based on its effectiveness in addressing physical, emotional and/or spiritual needs in the local community such as food, clothing, shelter, fellowship and care for the sick based on Jesus’ words in Matthew 25: 35-36.
