  • God's Law: The way things are

    We read in Psalm 119:8, “I will observe your statutes.” I like the Psalmist’s clear communication of what he “will” do. It is forceful and committed. “I will observe God’s statutes.” Notice he does not write, “I will try to observe God’s statutes.” “Try” is one of those words that we should tune our ear to so that when we use it, we question our commitment.

    Voegele, who ran against former Deputy Judge-Executive Paula Gish for the nomination, celebrated the win Tuesday night at the John Black Community Center in Buckner.

    No Democratic candidate filed for candidacy for the office, so Voegele runs unopposed in the November general election.

    “This is a great night for me and my family. Everyone here has helped me achieve this,” Voegele said to the crowd of well-wishers. “You find out when you do something like this, you have to be picked up and carried and be helped to accomplish this.”

  • Personality is a plus

    GOSHEN – It wasn’t the individual speed or the switch to handing off the baton with the right hand that has pushed the North Oldham High School 4x800 girls’ relay team into a state title contender.

    It was the the mindset of each runner being in the right order in the rotation.

    “We are all in the right spots now for our personality,” sophomore Hannah Gray said. The two on the ends are more speed and the two in the middle more steady type runners.”
