  • Support Group Instills HOPE in Others

    When Vicki Phillips faced two separate cancer diagnoses, her husband was by her side each time to help her through what she referred to as “some very dark days.”

    “There are days when you can’t see past it,”  Phillips said. “I found it encouraging to see people who had made it past those dark days.”

  • Worship that is Pleasing to the Lord

    I remember a delightful evening with friends.  Our hosts had a four-year-old whose favorite super hero was Bible man. He wanted to impress us so he got on his costume.

    He put on his Bible Man mask, his Luke Skywalker light saber, and his Bible woman cape because the purple looks cool, and his Bible man cape was torn.

    His mother asks him the Bible man questions, “Are you ready for battle?” He proclaims yes! She asks about his helmet, shield, sword, and shoes. He makes all the appropriate cute responses.  

  • Where Does Your Treasure Lie

    Our society surrounds us with a great cloud of enticement.  Wherever we turn we confront the claim that happiness is just around the corner, a matter of having more or better or newer things.  The father of American capitalism certainly endorsed this creed.  John D. Rockefeller, when asked what would make him happy, is said to have replied, “One dollar more.”

  • HeartSafe Designation Shows Progress

    Oldham County EMS Director

    Heart disease has a staggering impact on the nation, Commonwealth and Oldham County. Kentucky is eighth nationally in cardiovascular disease death rates with about 1,100 deaths annually.

    About 15 percent of all hospitalizations and 30 percent of all Kentucky deaths are related to heart disease. In Oldham County, EMS responds to an average of 320 heart-related calls annually in addition to about 100 heart rhythm disturbances and 30 heart attacks.

    Ag Tag Nets $900

    In February, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer asked farmers across the Commonwealth to step-up and make the “Ag Tag” donation.

    For the second time, the proceeds from voluntary donations to the Agricultural Program Trust fund would be divided equally among 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud. Farmers had the option to donate $10 when they renewed their license plates in March.

  • Country Comparison

    I am leaving beautiful Berlin and will soon be home again in Indiana.

    As my visit comes to a close, I find myself wondering once more why my ancestors ever chose to leave such a place.

    Make no mistake, I love the U.S. and am proud and thankful to be an American, but three hundred years ago, things were different.  It’s hard to imagine what my grandparents were thinking when they left family, community, and traditions behind and set sail for the unknown.

  • North Boys Headed to State Golf Final

    LOUISVILLE – Michael Vissing walked off the 18th green at Midland Trail Monday afternoon frustrated he’d double bogeyed the final two holes.

    “I stormed off the green because I didn’t think we were going to go (to the state tournament),” Vissing said.

    But Vissing’s anger soon turned to joy, as North Oldham’s cumulative team score of 305 proved to be the second best score among all teams at the Region 6 tournament, clinching the Mustangs a trip to next week’s state tournament in Bowling Green.

  • EOMS B-team Finishes Perfect Season

    GOSHEN – Coach James Kelly’s favorite saying to his players is that practice doesn’t make perfect, but that “perfect practice makes perfect.”

    That mindset has led to a perfect year for his East Oldham Middle School B-Team Patriots.

    East Oldham clinched a perfect regular season Monday with an 8-0 win over North Oldham Middle School’s B-Team at Mustang Stadium.

  • Dragons conquer Conner

    CRESTWOOD – Conner came to town Friday with the hype. The Cougars left town with a loss.

    South Oldham played maybe its best all-around game of the season, beating Conner 34-32 in its district opener at Dragon Stadium.

    “Everyone doubted us in the beginning and no one’s ever believed in us,” said quarterback Chase Lightfoot. “That’s just how South Oldham fights. We come out and fight every time.”
