    Group gets tax status

    The group Friends of Pewee Valley officially received their 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service. This status makes them an official tax exempt non-profit organization. Mayor Bob Rogers announced at January’s city council meeting that the Friends applied for the status in February of 2011 and just recently received notification of acceptance.

    Comprehensive plan passed

  • Legislators should step up for education

    It is true that our kids come first in Oldham County, not just in our school district, but across our entire community.

    Our general assembly has raised the bar by adopting higher standards of achievement — however, our legislators have not held themselves accountable by making the courageous decisions necessary to fund our education system at a level sufficient to meet these expectations. A lack of support at the state level is crippling our district, making it more and more difficult for us to do what we do best: ensuring the learning of every child.

  • Out with the old: Mattress makes a big difference

    After spending my entire married life on hand-me-down mattresses, except for that brief period with a rent-to-own deal, I was ecstatic about choosing a brand new set. We had been discussing it for ages, knowing instinctively that a number of our aches and pains would subside if we weren’t constantly fighting for the one spot in the bed that didn’t sag to the floor.

  • Cold weather cooking

    Well cold weather is here and I feel it more than I used to feel it. As a youngster I could stay out all day playing in the snow. Even cold weather activities like ice skating, skiing, ice hockey, hunting or football games didn’t bother me.

    This is the best time of the year for soup; it is good all year but there is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup when it’s cold outside. Soup makes a good meal with some good bread or crackers.

  • Knowing what’s good and bad humor

    I have been told that I have a good sense of humor, but not at the expense of others. I do not laugh at people’s mistakes, distresses or misfortunes. I feel compassion and look for ways to be supportive. I am less and less apt to engage in ridicule or sarcasm. I resist using comebacks when others are sarcastic toward me. I seek simply to feel the pain in both of us and look for ways to bring more mutual respect into our communication.

  • God gives more than 100 percent

    I want to have some fun and use math to discover just how much God loves us. Athletes like to talk in percentages about how much they give to help their team win. They talk about giving more than 100 percent, but is that even possible since 100 percent is as much as we can give? Does the same apply in everyday life?

    To help make my point I want to give every letter of the alphabet a point value with “A” getting one point and “Z” getting 26 points and the rest correspond to their place in the alphabet. What equals 100 percent in life?
