  • This holiday season seems different

    To the editor:

    It would be an understatement for me to say this is one of the most distressed Christmas holiday seasons most of us have had to endure. Normally during this time of year people are more concerned with shopping, baking cookies, putting up decorations, taking pictures of precious moments, scheduling all the holiday festivities and spending time with friends and family. Not this year. 

  • Three famous questions will help to cope with tough-to-understand situations

    I was required to major in philosophy during seminary. At first I resisted. But the more I understood that a philosopher is a person seeking wisdom or enlightenment, the more value I discovered in philosophy.

    • What can I know?

    • What should I do?

    • What may I hope?

    Deibel is at the end of his 20th year as an Oldham County 

    magistrate.

    Deibel said balancing duties of his full-time job and his elected position posed some challenges at the beginning of his service.

    He and his brother, Crestwood Mayor Dennis Deibel, own Deibel’s Greenhouses in Crestwood.
