    Sign defacing

    It’s election time and political signs are being installed around the county and . . . the jerks are back. Who are these creeps? They are the ones who deface, pull-out and steal the signs.

    While having personally experienced the hoodlums in the past, it was disappointing to have seen two of Judge-Executive Voegele’s signs defaced. Since the vandals sneak around in darkness, like thieves in the night, only the result of their actions are seen.

  • A Prayer Pattern for Learning to Pray - ACTS IN Communion

    In James 5:16 we read, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” As Christians we are to desire righteousness, that is, we are to live lives as holy as we can. We recognize we will never be free from sin, but we make no excuses. The more we are able to do this the more powerful and effective our prayers will be. I want powerful and effective prayers. What about you?

  • Columnist makes endorsements in county primary races

    Ed. note: These endorsements reflect the views of Mike DiGiuro. They are not the views or endorsements of the Oldham Era or its staff.

    One of the best things about being an “opinionist” is that I get to tell people what I think. On the other hand, it’s easy to offer an opinion, and I appreciate that even the most abject failure in a campaign for public office is more courageous than I. That being said, here are my thoughts on the primary election coming up on May 20. My conclusions are based on conversations and responses from most of the candidates.

    Support Bednarski

    I have known Jon for several years as a business man and served with him as a founding Board Member of the Oldham County Community Foundation. Jon understands the concerns of business owners in Oldham County and will be a great asset to Oldham County Fiscal Court as a Magistrate. Jon also understands the many needs in our county by having served on our Community Foundation Board and having lived here for over 28 years.

  • Truitt: Please, no White House invitations for us

    When my sisters and I were growing up, my mom saw only two possible life paths for us. We were either going to be bank robbers or achieve something significant that would get us invited to the White House. There was no average life on the agenda for me. I was going to jail or having dinner with the President. (Note: In those days, moms hadn’t yet learned to say to their little girls, “Someday you could be President.” The pinnacle of a girl’s achievement was simply being invited to dinner with him.)

  • Mueller: Learning that you can’t change the weather

    There’s a mountain in the heart of Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands that is one of the wettest places on the earth. It almost never stops raining. It’s absolutely beautiful in the surrounding areas, but can you imagine what it would be like if that’s all there was, weather-wise? Try telling a ski enthusiast that snow is bad or a windsurfer that we can do without wind. It’s all necessary and it’s all perfect in its own way.
