  • County Fiscal Court approves new cable franchise with Time Warner

    After weeks of negotiations, the Oldham County Fiscal Court has once again awarded the county’s cable franchise agreement to Time Warner Cable.

    The court opened up its franchise agreement months ago, in hopes of securing a better agreement with Time Warner or another cable provider. But with a non-exclusive agreement and a near monopoly on cable lines, there wasn’t much negotiating, County Judge-Executive David Voegele had previously said.

  • Five-year-old uses harmonica to raise funds to fight cancer

  • Experience leads to thanking our veterans

    I was in college getting ready to head to campus for finals when I got the phone call no military wife wants to get.

    “There’s been an accident. Eight of our men are dead. Your husband could have been one of them.”

  • Words we live by

    One of the joys of my life has been the opportunity to speak to various groups about “Positive Living,” “Inner Peace,” and similar topics. Along the way I have met some wonderfully generous individuals who shared articles, books and quotes they knew I would enjoy.

    I recently received the 1947 classic Words To Live By. This book was published at a time when Americans were readjusting from wartime conditions to the uneasy terms of atomic peace.

  • An uncomfortable election experience

    Election day was a bit unsettling for me. As I stood in line at the polling place at North Oldham High School, I noticed that there was someone sitting between the two election workers writing in a spiral notebook and typing on an iPad. As I got a bit closer, it was apparent that this fellow was writing down the names of everyone who was voting. He would raise up and look at the identification card the voter produced and write down their name.

  • Ich bin ein Berliner: I am a Berliner

    With broad grins, and open hearts, they tell their stories to anyone who takes an interest.

    “I was six years old when I woke in the middle of the night, and found that my parents were gone. They were at the wall…celebrating!”
