  • Valentine’s Day: A Celebration of Love

    A wife woke up one morning and said, “Honey, I just had a dream that you bought me a new gold necklace. What do you think it means?”

    “I don’t know, but Valentine’s Day is coming soon. Friday, you’ll know,” he replied.

    A few nights later, she again woke up after having a dream, “This time, I dreamed you gave me a pearl necklace. What do you think it means?”

    “You’ll know Friday,” he replied. Another dream about a pearl necklace elicited the same response.

  • Letter to the Editor: Pastor speaks on cell tower

    As the pastor of Salem Assembly of God, a church that has served the community for over forty years, I have remained silent for the past few months regarding the proposed cell tower, which AT&T has now cancelled. During this time I have declined newspaper and television interviews believing that it was in the best interest of the church. As a pastor, it is one of my duties to protect the integrity of the church; a church made up of wonderful people from across Oldham County and Pewee Valley.

  • Election 2014: cheers and jeers

    For the first time in at least a decade, roughly 20 people will vie for eight seats on the La Grange City Council. Additionally, three people are running for La Grange mayor and many county government positions will see contested primaries.

    This newspaper applauds that type of civic engagement, hopefully rooted in good intentions.

    Rest assured, this is not an indictment of current officeholders. We applaud them for their service, past, present and possibly future.

  • State contest proves Era is worth it

    Mayor says thanks

  • The gentle art of caring

    My growing up in first and second grade was done in a small Midwestern town – Decatur, Ill. As I think back, it seems to me we kids had the modern psychologists figured out before our time.

  • Truitt: Finally out of my annual holiday fog

    During the holidays, I begin to lose any semblance of control over my life. Late night chats with Santa’s elves cause me to lose sleep. Cheeseballs and egg nog cause me to gain weight (15 pounds this year). And for some inexplicable reason, between Thanksgiving and Christmas I steadily lose the mental capacity to accomplish even the most basic household tasks. It’s like I’m on Santa’s naughty list, and instead of putting coal in my stocking, he chooses to sabotage my life.

  • Senator: Legislative session warming up

    This week in Frankfort, the Senate passed key pieces of legislation that help our students and school districts, provide economic development and give law enforcement time-saving investigation procedures.

    Two Senate Bills regarding Education and Education Funding passed the Senate this week.
