  • Prepping for STEM careers

    Last week, many of our schools celebrated Engineering Week with innovative projects and guest speakers. This is reflective of the emphasis on STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — across the country as we look ahead to a future in which one million STEM jobs will be available by 2018. However, the United States is projected to only graduate 200,000 students qualified for those same jobs.

  • Why is the Bible true?

    As I finished up my seminary training and entered into ministry I was full of questions about the authority of scripture. Regrettably, I would pretend parts were not there that I didn’t like, “de-mythologize” other parts that seemed to be based on unscientific world views or superstition, and explain away parts that I disagreed with. With my background in Hebrew and Greek I could even overwhelm anyone who might disagree with me through my brilliance. All this fed my arrogance which made me a much less effective minister than I imagined in my own mind.

  • Fire causes changes

    The paper might look a little different this week.

    Due to a fire at one of our corporate printing plants, changes had to be made for all of the newspapers in our group in order to re-route printing jobs from Standard Printing in Shepherdsville to other available plants.

  • Letters to the Editor: Right to Work

    Supporting RTW

    Last week, the Oldham County Fiscal Court started the process of passing a local Right to Work law for Oldham County. Like many county governments across the state, Oldham County is working to stand out among its peers and create opportunities that bring new jobs and new business to our community.

    This Right to Work ordinance is not a policy against unions. It does not eliminate or limit union representation. Most importantly, it does NOT keep union companies from considering Oldham County as a site for new business.
