  • Kenwood Station holds Tiger Trek fundraiser for PTA

    Kenwood Station Elementary’s annual Tiger Trek fundraiser was held last week on a beautiful sunny school day. Students and staff enjoyed music from DJ Jack Gill as the children walked, ran and finally danced their hearts out to raise money for the school’s Parent Teacher Association.

  • Deciding whether or not to believe in miracles

    The mother asks her son what he learned in Sunday School and he tells her a story about how Moses and his people had the Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptian chariots behind them. So Moses calls the Army Corps of Engineers up, they build a floating bridge in short order, the people race across the bridge and then cut it loose just as the chariots arrive and they escape certain death.

    The mother looks on in horror, and exclaims, “That is not really what they taught you in Sunday School is it?”

We know that identifying and intervening with struggling readers as soon as possible can help get them on track before the gap becomes too broad.

  • Voters should tune into the political process

    In just about a month, voters in Kentucky will take center stage in America.

    The entire country is watching the McConnell-Grimes senatorial race and I hope we don’t embarrass ourselves.

    Sadly, voter turnout is notoriously low in parts of Kentucky, Oldham County being no exception. If one-third of all registered voters actually make it to the polls, it is considered a strong turnout. I think we can do better than that.

  • Children, husbands and boyfriends

    Several years ago, on a trip from Berlin to Indianapolis, I learned the hard way, that I should never fly without chewy granola bars. Just like the commercial suggests, whenever one of the kids starts saying too much, I pull one out and feed it to them.

    When my daughter was three years old, she took a liking to the Italian woman sitting across from us, and fortunately, the woman took a liking to her. Initially, there was a bit of an accent barrier, but by the end of the nine-hour flight, they understood each other perfectly.
