  • Swim teams making improvement

    With better numbers and more experience, the three local high school swim teams are all seeing an improvement in fortunes as they hit the midway point in their seasons.

    While the squads are still in what is considered the toughest region in the state with the more established Louisville programs, they are closing the gap again this season thanks to swimmers like Oldham County’s Claire Grogan and Annie Golemboski, Ben Zaepful and Anne Schear of North Oldham and Josh Malone and Harley Jackson at South Oldham.

  • Letters to the Editor

    Neighbors spend snow day in service to others

    To the editor:

    What wonderful care, love, and support we have received from our neighbors on Briarhill Road during my husband’s 10-day hospital time. But the sweetest and happiest care came from six children on our street.

    They knew that my husband, Pat, would be coming home from the hospital Friday afternoon and on that cold, blustery Friday morning they rang the door bell and asked if they could shovel our driveway.

  • Your life is worth remembering

    As I think of the final years of my parents’ lives, I note that they were characterized by a continually failing ability to remember.

    With my dad and his dementia, it was mostly short-term events and people that would not come back to him.

    With Mom suffering from late stage Alzheimer’s, she has lost almost all recall of the distant past, or a few seconds earlier.
