  • BE ALERT AND ATTENTIVE

    The ring of my cell phone is a cue for me to be alert.  When I watch a musician, I am reminded of the importance of focused attention.  Greeting a family member, friend or colleague, I vow to be attentive to his or her needs today.

    Attention or alertness is also known as mindfulness, concentration, and recollection.  We must stay alert or we risk missing critical elements in life – moments of grace, opportunities for gratitude, evidence of our connections to others, times of inspiration.

  • NEW PLACE, NEW FACE, PLENTY OF STORIES

    For the past week, I’ve been driving around Oldham County as just another face in a place people apparently call the OC? I’m still trying to find the beach.

    We could start from the beginning, but that was 25 years ago and I don’t remember much of it. So we’ll start with this: I’m a lifelong Kentuckian who has made his way to “The OC” to write about the faces, places and people that make up these communities.

  • Local to appear on reality TV show

    Georgia is a long way to go for a bra fitting, especially if you’re a goat.

    But that’s exactly where Betty, an “extremely well-endowed” Myotonic goat, traveled to get a little special attention from Cynthia and Molly of Lifetime’s reality show “Double Divas.”

    The premise of the show is that the owners design and create custom lingerie, especially bras, for clients with special needs. Betty certainly has special needs.

  • MORE PARENT COMPLAINTS FOR SCHOOL’S REDISTRICTING PLAN

    The final round of public forums relating to the redistricting of Oldham County schools was held Thursday night at Oldham County High School. In all, the school district has held nine meetings allowing the public to see the proposed changes and offer some suggestions.

    On Thursday, Michael Williams, director of pupil personnel at the schools, unveiled four new proposals of how the schools would make up for the loss of Liberty Elementary which is in its final year. Parents got to see the outlines for the new districts and voice their opinions on them.
