  • This holiday season seems different

    To the editor:

    It would be an understatement for me to say this is one of the most distressed Christmas holiday seasons most of us have had to endure. Normally during this time of year people are more concerned with shopping, baking cookies, putting up decorations, taking pictures of precious moments, scheduling all the holiday festivities and spending time with friends and family. Not this year. 

  • Three famous questions will help to cope with tough-to-understand situations

    I was required to major in philosophy during seminary. At first I resisted. But the more I understood that a philosopher is a person seeking wisdom or enlightenment, the more value I discovered in philosophy. 

    I studied and learned about Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher, who provided his three famous questions to ask when we are dealing with difficult things. The three questions that deal with our questioning of our assumptions are:

    • What can I know?

    • What should I do?

    • What may I hope?

  • Magistrates have a variety of responsibilities, expectations to fill

    Residents have less than a month to file as a candidate in the 2010 election, including eight slots for magistrates of Oldham County Fiscal Court.

     Magistrates Bob Deibel and Rick Rash say the job is one that requires a lot of time. 

    Deibel is at the end of his 20th year as an Oldham County 

    magistrate.

    Deibel said balancing duties of his full-time job and his elected position posed some challenges at the beginning of his service.

    He and his brother, Crestwood Mayor Dennis Deibel, own Deibel’s Greenhouses in Crestwood. 

  • Duo keeps ’em guessing

     GOSHEN – Just five games into the season, opponents of the North Oldham Mustangs are starting to face a big dilemma.

    Do they stop senior guard Alex Foley outside or concentrate on shutting down sophomore center Devon Rowan inside? 

    The problem is likely to grow in favor of NOHS as the season wears on.

  • Smoking cessation class offered at Baptist Hospital Northeast
