    Religious Freedom
    I read with interest Mr. DiGiuro’s article on religious freedom in the April 23rd edition.   He dealt with an extremely relevant topic, but left out some important aspects inherent in a well-rounded view of this topic.  If Oldham Countians are to maintain their religious freedom, they must keep in mind a few of the issues our Founding Fathers understood when they penned the First Amendment.

  • This Mother’s Day

    Working Kentucky moms are never off the clock. Between juggling jobs, after-school activities and help with homework, moms put in a lot more than a full day’s work. And every dollar they work for is hard earned.
    But this Mother’s Day, what’s happening in Washington also matters to Kentucky moms. Congress can help nearly 300,000 families right here in the Commonwealth by making permanent key improvements to tax credits, putting money back into the pockets of moms who’ve earned it.

  • Is there power in praying for others?

    Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:19, “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”  Jesus continually took time to pray to understand God’s will (Mark 1:35, Luke 6:12 and many others), and challenged his disciples to learn to pray (Matthew 6:5 ff, Mark 9:29, Luke 22:45 ff.).

    The Board of Elections, the County Clerk and the Alcohol Beverage Control administration requires that this process adhere to a number of conditions. Some of them are:

    Chance’s  Chance
      In your paper you have had a couple of articles on Chance, the husky.  I am the lucky person who got the incredible opportunity of bringing him into his new forever home.  He is a remarkable dog and is doing great.  If you did not know his story, you would never know that he is blind.  As I write this letter, he is asleep at my feet.  

  • The eight be-attitudes of marriage

    My wife Kathy and I were married on February 17, 1990.  During our sacramental celebration we expressed to one another and to the congregation our “eight be-attitudes of marriage.”
    What really makes a marriage work?  Marriage is far too complex for one simple answer or secret.  For us the following eight be-attitudes express the features of a good marriage.
