  • Oldham support needed for regional college

    Oldham County has been issued a $250,000 challenge. If this challenge is met, it will help set more Oldham County youth on a strong path toward higher education and career success. It also will ensure the county’s current and emerging workforce and training education needs are addressed for many years to come.

  • Elections are about winning, not party line

    The recent midterm election can be counted as a success by the Republicans. Mitch McConnell defeated Alison Grimes by 15 points, Republicans will control the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives remains firmly in the grasp of Republicans.

    In Oldham County, I believe it was a clean sweep by Republicans. If there is a Democratic office holder, I’m not sure who it might be – although there are some in the Republican Party that think a few of our local office holders are posers and are only Republicans so they can get elected.

  • Fancy pants tea party

    Last weekend, my daughters and I were invited to a fancy tea party at a fancy house in a fancy neighborhood. I kinda always wanted to be fancy, but it doesn’t come naturally to me. Truthfully, it doesn’t come at all.

    Example: I recently had an extremely important business meeting. So, I forced myself out of my blue jeans and into my fancy business clothes, complete with silk stockings and black pumps.

  • Looking for inspiration

    I’ve been trying to come up with a subject to write about for my first column for weeks now. It’s been the same deal: I sit down with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning while in bed, trying to rack my brain for a good idea…any idea.

    And…nothing.

    Writing blog posts and columns are easy for me…but only at times.
