  • North advances after PK shootout

    GOSHEN – Penalty kick karma remains squarely in the North Oldham boys soccer team’s corner.

  • Laughter is the best medicine

    What human act am I describing?  Our body performs “rhythmic, vocalized, expiratory and involuntary actions.”

    Fifteen facial muscles contract and there is electrical stimulation of the zygomatic major muscle. That’s the muscle that extends from each cheekbone to the corners of the mouth. This raises the corners of the mouth. Currents of varying intensity produce a wide range of facial responses.

  • Being Kind & Generous

    We need to be kind, truly kind, for the sake of other people and for our own sake too.

    It is impossible to stretch out to other people through your emotions, imagination, concern, interest and actions without also benefiting yourself.  Your world grows larger and you problems grow smaller.

  • Tricks & Treats

    Throughout my life, Halloween has always been a mixed bag.  And the bag wasn’t always full of treats. 

    The first few years of growing up, I celebrated just like all the other early 1970’s kids.  Mom and I made homemade popcorn balls in various colors.  She distributed them to trick-or-treaters while daddy and I dressed up and collected treats from the neighbors.

  • Help us celebrate this season

    I love this time of year.

    For me, Halloween marks the beginning of a prolonged holiday season of good times, good food and an overriding sense of good cheer.

    It is also the beginning of what is undoubtedly one of the busiest times of the year. With school activities, family get-togethers, organization and club events, church concerts and pageants, business open houses and all the cities that need to be lit up, there is never a shortage of things to do between Oct. 31 and Dec. 31.

  • The heat is on

    It’s a common misconception that purchasing a new home heating or cooling unit will automatically lower your energy bills. Purchasing a new energy efficient heating or cooling unit should lower your energy bills. However, you may want to ask yourself if your home is prepared to fully realize the potential cost savings of a new energy efficient unit.
