  • A Santa miracle for the Christmas season

    Always believe in miracles. That is what all of us need to remember as we enter into another Christmas season. There is plenty of cynicism and skepticism to go around, but I say focus on the miracle that God became human in Jesus Christ and that miracle can give us hope no matter what situation we find ourselves in. I found an old story from Guidepost Magazine’s book Christmas Miracles, c. 2008. The story is edited, for this article, but the full version can be found on the internet. It always brings a tear of joy to my eyes.

  • Truitt: Learning lessons from mismanaged anger

    When my cousin celebrated her 10-year anniversary, I was reminded of an incident in my own marriage. Her wedding happened to be on the same evening as a much anticipated bluegrass music jam.

  • Be well, be at peace

    Every year we see marvelous and wonderful progress in the field of medical science. At one time diphtheria was one of the dreaded diseases of humankind. But today, nobody is afraid of diphtheria; it has practically been eliminated. So has smallpox, and thank God, so has polio. Pneumonia used to be a dreaded disease, but today, the physicians have medicines that can deal with pneumonia. Great progress is being made daily in the field of cancer. Medical science marches on to new heights.

  • High school dance becomes ALS fundraiser

    The homecoming dance was once a time of dressing to the nines and dancing until midnight for the students of South Oldham High School until it was threatened to be canceled last year due to the lack of participation of the sponsor, the SOHS dance team.

    Disappointed that they could not be involved in the planning of the annual dance in their senior year, former dance team member Nicole Childress and her friends, Emily Sage and Sara McOmber, came up with a solution.

  • Group sets $100,000 scholarship goal

    A fund that helps dole out scholarships to local students is hoping to push its total giving to more than $100,000 this year.

    The Oldham County Community Scholarships has been giving out scholarships since 2013 officially, but was born out of the Oldham County Dollars for Scholars program, which started in 2004.

    This year, OCCS gave out $78,600 to 68 recipients, but with increased demand, wants to increase the total scholarship numbers into six figures.

    With more than half the members not returning for a new term in January, the La Grange City Council had a quick, but busy, final meeting of 2014, capped off with expenditures to help reduce the geese problem in Wilborn Park.

    On a voice vote, with no audible no responses, the council approved more than $8,000 in expenses to enclose parts of the park to help combat aggressive geese and their droppings all over the park.
