  • South Oldham shuts out North Oldham 14-0

     GOSHEN — Rain moved into Goshen Friday night and never left, which only added to the running rivalry that brings a gritty performance between North Oldham and South Oldham.

     CRESTWOOD — South Oldham senior Kailey Oliveros was named a team captain right before the start of Wednesday night’s district opener against Oldham County.

  • Have a holy fear of an intimate God

    Five-year-old Johnny was in the kitchen as his mother made supper. She asked him to go into the pantry and get her a can of tomato soup, but he didn’t want to go in alone.
    “It’s dark in there and I’m scared.”

    Johnny walked hesitantly to the door and slowly opened it. He peeked inside, saw it was dark, and started to leave when all at once an idea came, and he said, “Jesus, if you’re in there, would you hand me that can of tomato soup?”

    By Tom McShane
    There are so many old musical instruments that are found in attics, closets or old estates, or some that have been hidden there for generations. These relics pop up during routine housecleanings, relocations, estate liquidations, flea markets and yard sales everywhere. Most of these instruments are, to say the least, not in very good playing condition; some have almost completely disintegrated over time.

  • On top of spaghetti all covered in me

    Slowly but surely, I am making progress on the unpacking of my new house. Because the packing was done quickly, there isn’t much rhyme or reason to the contents of many of the boxes. A left shoe here, a random charger for some electronic gadget there, it’s all rather hodge podge.

  • Appreciate and value one another

    Appreciation takes courage and resolve. It’s the high road and not everyone is willing to take it. When you choose thoughts of valuing and gratitude as your primary way of being, you are turning off the road well traveled. You are saying no to blame, to resentment, to revenge, to violence in any form, from bad-mouthing others, to kicking the dog, to berating a person. You are saying no to victim-hood, to martyrdom, to passing the buck, to criticism and to demeaning yourself or others.
