  • Most of us have had the experience of working with clay. The lump of clay feels good in our hands as we work it and make it soft. Then we make it into something of our own creation. It probably isn’t very good by worldly standards, but we were probably impressed with what we made because we made it.

    One thing I can guarantee you is that the clay never told us what it wanted us to make it into.

    Jeremiah is inspired by God to use the powerful image of God as the potter and you and I as clay.

  • The Roederer Correctional Complex would like to recognize the following employees for Employee and Supervisor of the Quarter January - March 2014: Lt. Patrick Hawkins, Supervisor of the Quarter, and Jack Barton, Education Coordinator, Employee of the Quarter.

  • Jessica Bush rang in the new year with an unexpectedly early bundle of joy.

    Thomas Eugene Howard was born at 2 p.m. on Jan. 1 to Bush and Tommy Howard of Carrollton. Thomas was the first baby born in 2014 at Baptist Health La Grange. The healthy 7 pound, 8 ounce baby boy was 14 days early and measured 20 inches.

    “I’m pretty excited,” Bush said. “I’m a little nervous about having a boy.”

  • New Year’s is celebrated in America in different ways, usually with lots of friends, parties, confetti, party horns and staying up late to ring in the New Year. Visit the Oldham County History Center’s Peyton Samuel Head Museum and explore some New Year traditions celebrated around the world.

    This exhibit is geared toward children in a year-long effort to educate them about different cultures and the county in which they live.

  • 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.
