  • COLUMN: Standing on a firm foundation this fourth of July

    Is He a part or is He not? Was He ever a part of U.S. history, or was He never mentioned?
    A recent flap over NBC’s intentional omission of the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance during the U.S. Open brought to the fore once again the debate over whether any reference to God should be part of the public discourse.

  • MUELLER: Giving comes first

    After we are born, we develop the basic flaw of self-centeredness. We think the world revolves around us and everyone else is here to make us comfortable and happy.
    First, we get all our needs taken care of and then we start getting things from these people.

  • GINGER: Thank God I didn’t know

    As the sun creeps up over the horizon, I watch the two youngest of my five children, sleeping peacefully after a difficult night of illness and unrest. I am exhausted, but it is necessary to get on with my day.
    I pause for a moment and think back on my decision to have my tubal reversed.

  • COLUMN: The Four Way Test provides a one-way ticket to civility

    The Rotary International’s Four Way Test is a real winner. As a member of the South Oldham Rotary, every week before our meeting we recite The Four Way Test of the Things we Think, say, and do.
    First, Is it the Truth?
    Second, Is it Fair to all concerned?
    Third, Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

  • BOB MUELLER: It’s time to rekindle your curiosity

    There’s a joke about a couple who’ve been married over 50 years, and one night in bed the wife looks over at her husband and starts to complain.
    She says, “You know, when we were first married, you’d reach over and hold my hand. It’s been years since you’ve reached over to hold my hand at night.”

  • GINGER: Time to usher in a new season of food

    Summer is coming! I’m a cool weather gal, so the season only holds a mild attraction for me. That attraction mostly centers on food.

    To me, the warm weather months are all about festival and fair food. I love it all, from the lemon shake-ups to the deep fried Snickers bars.

  • PUBLISHER: The wheel goes round and round

    My debut performance in Oldham County as a moderator/emcee of events arrived Tuesday.
    Thanks to the Oldham County Chamber and Economic Development I was the lead pony in what became a very informative, very challenging, and somewhat eye opening discussion with three regional players of economic development.

  • GINGER: Scatterbrained with organic highlights

    My brain has been so scattered lately that I’ve had a hard time expounding on one subject for a column, so I’m just going to run ahead with my jumbled thoughts.
    Try to keep up!
    The Royal Wedding: It should have been me!
    Not in the sense that I should have been the one to marry Prince William.

  • MUELLER: Positive people and positive attitudes

    If you want to be successful in your life, at work, socializing, you need to be aware that there are two groups of people to hang out with.

    First, there are those who lift you up, are positive about life, have energy and enthusiasm, walk their walk, talk their walk, and generally make you feel great to be alive.

  • GINGER: Stick a fork in it

    Hubby just returned home from a six week business trip to a far-away place; a romantic little spot with tiki huts, cobalt blue water, pristine beaches, and cannibals.
    “Cannibals?!” you exclaim.
    Yeah, that’s what I said too.  When I found out cannibalism was practiced there until the 1950s, I declined to join him.
