  • Cupid plays too many practical jokes

    As I sit here eating my way through my second bag of Conversation Hearts, trying to ignore the fact that there are 60 calories per serving and 34 servings in a bag, I reflect back on what made this Valentine’s Day so “special.” What exactly brought me to this lowly state of sugar binging?

    Hubby and I don’t have a great Valentine’s history. Out of 26 (or is it 27 now?), years since he became my valentine, we have had probably three good ones. Actually, make that two. I forgot about that year there was a rat in our dinner.

  • Does science threaten the Bible?
  • Does science threaten the Bible?
  • Can something happen by chance?

    I am not sure where I found these, but I was entertained. Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited, until you try to sit in their pews. Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors. When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there. People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church. Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong. If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has. Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

  • Local option tax will affect more than just one county

    As I write this, there is a bill moving through the Kentucky Legislature concerning what is known as a “local option tax.” It would allow local governmental units, both cities and counties, to put the question of an increase in local sales tax for specific capital projects to a vote of the citizens.

    The mayor of Louisville, Greg Fischer, has been a vocal proponent of such a tax and has been working hard to help push it through the legislature.

  • Uncle Bob’s Cookin’

    Certain cities in America are known for a particular food item. For example: Philadelphia cheesesteaks, Chicago deep dish pizza, New Orleans gumbo, Cincinnati chili, Baltimore crab cakes and New York deli sandwiches.

  • Letters to the Editor: No right to work

    This letter is concerning the so-called “right to work law.” Two weeks ago the Oldham County Fiscal Court was given a presentation by someone named Jim Waters who is the executive director of something called The Bluegrass Institute. There was an article in the Oldham Era covering this. I have several questions and concerns about this.
