Today's Opinions

  • My five values

    I recently listed all of my values. I was surprised by the number of them. I would encourage you to write down all the values you hold dear. Then select the five most important values from the list. See how your list compares with mine.

  • Encouraging county to lead the state in another category: voter turnout

    Five days from now, registered voters in this county will have a chance to exercise one of their most important rights, the right to vote.

    And every year about this time, newspapers across the county feature editorials, columns, etc., preaching on why you should go vote. You can probably count this column as one of those as well.

    But in a county like Oldham, consistently ranked as one of the most wealthy, most healthy and best educated, voting should be a foregone conclusion.

  • Oldham Grand Slam a great experience

    People run for different reasons: to lose weight, to relieve stress, to compete. Last month, some 36,000 runners ran for all those reasons, plus one: to show America’s oldest marathon could not be stopped by an act of terrorism.

    The courage of those 264 people who were injured, many of them losing their own ability to walk or run, not to mention the courage of those who died, certainly added to the inspiration each Boston Marathon runner felt this year.

  • Earley: Does God always work for good?

    One of the powerful scriptures that people like to quote is from Romans 8:28. It reads, “…We know that in all things God works for the good.” Like the Bible verse that says, “God never gives you more than you can handle,” these verses comfort people in times of challenge. The problem is one is incomplete and the other is not in the Bible, and neither, as they are printed, are true.

  • Mueller: Ways to know yourself better

    We all need to become more comfortable with exploring our inner world. Persons who have never learned to feel comfortable in their internal world become hamstrung in managing their lives. They may sell out and give over their personhood to some influential person or group of persons. They give up on being who they truly are.

    Paying attention to your internal world is vital to your attainment of soul-satisfying contentment. I want to give you a plan for increasing your internal awareness. Here are five specific suggestions for achieving greater internal awareness.
