  • New build, still tough

    A local car dealership is cruising into 2015 by selling the first truck in what it calls the “wave of the future.”

    Tri-County Ford, located off Exit 17 in Buckner, recently sold a 2015 Ford F-150 to Oldham County resident Frank Durham. And while truck sales aren’t uncommon at Tri-County, the new F-150 is.

  • Chamber panel addresses several Frankfort-related issues

     

    A discussion about the upcoming session of the General Assembly, hosted by the Oldham County Chamber, went from a conversation of issues like right to work to a full-blown political update.

    Panelists at the forum included Joe Gerth of the Courier-Journal, Greg Brotzge, a lobbyist, and State Rep. David Osborne, a Republican from Prospect.

    “Kentucky government has not been a proactive force for businesses in history,” Osborne said. “I think that’s why we continue to be at the bottom of the rankings in business.”

    With the stark, cold January landscape, natural features are easier to see. Take for example the many stone fences that dot Kentucky’s once well-farmed fields.

  • City of Goshen eliminates two movie events for budget reasons

     

    Goshen Mayor Bob Thacker and commissioners voted to eliminate two community movie showings at the City of Goshen Commission Meeting earlier this week.

    In the past, Goshen has hosted four movies a year, starting in June, at North Oldham Baptist Church, but to save money, the commission decided to take away some of the budgeted money for special events and add it to the new park fund.

    Movie licensing fees cost the City of Goshen $10,000 a year, but now because of the vote to reduce spending, that number will be cut in half.

  • Do you struggle with acquired situational narcissism?

    Celebrities tend to misbehave in tiresome and predictable ways, like tantrums, affairs and addictions, and we tend to think they’re spoiled. But one psychiatrist, Cornell’s Robert B. Millman, says they’re not spoiled, they’re sick. The affliction is Acquired Situational Narcissism.

  • Self-evaluations: learning how to accept it all

    Like a lot of twenty-somethings out there, I struggle with self-perception. But it’s not my physical appearance that I have the most trouble accepting.

    What I mean by this is that, often times, I have trouble with my self-evaluation of me.

    Me: at this very moment in my life.

    My usual routine when I first sit down at 9 a.m. in my oh-so-yellow office at the Era is to drink my freshly brewed coffee while scrolling all three of my favorite social media websites.

    Nothing was unusual about my routine the other day.

  • Authentic flavors half a world away

    Thanks to my in-laws’ kind willingness to babysit for a week, I was able to visit hubby in Berlin sans kids. I had never been apart from them for more than three days, so leaving was a bit of a struggle. They cried, I cried and we counted the number of bedtimes until I would be home again.

    But once I got on the plane, it was like, “Kids? What kids?”

    Three days into the trip, hubby asked, “How are the children doing?”

    “Um, I assume they’re doing okay.”
