Today's Opinions

  • Old-fashioned obituary for modern mom

    Several years ago, I was given my great-grandmother’s scrapbooks. They are filled with newspaper clippings, including many obituaries from the 1920s and 30s and I am thoroughly enjoying them.

  • The twist of being human

    “Love your crooked neighbor with your crooked heart” (W. H. Auden). Our hearts are not necessarily crooked in the criminal sense; but they are battered and bruised and wrenched – or likely to become so without much warning. They need compassion, even from themselves, for themselves.

  • Earley: Do you hate sin?

    I think one of the best definitions of sin is anything we do that separates us from God. When we talk about sin we find that humans make very little of sin and God makes so much of it. People joke about it, even brag about their sins. Much of our entertainment glorifies sinful life choices.

    God hates sin (Proverbs 6:16ff.). God says that the “wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). God says that sin is a very serious matter.

    A fellow named Willie was deep in debt and was thinking of committing suicide.

  • Letter to the Editor Sept. 25

    Kiwanis upset with Fair Board

    Editor’s note: Calls to get comment from Fair Board leadership went unreturned for two weeks.

  • Earley: Salvation by works or faith?

    Elmer Towns tells about a motorcycle gang member who was dramatically converted to faith in Jesus Christ. The next Sunday he did the only thing he knew he should do and went to church. Nobody in the church knew him and he walked down to the second aisle and sat in the pew. The people stared because he looked the part: big and burly, bearded, long hair, black jacket and lots of tattoos.

  • Raising awareness of childhood obesity

    September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and while the dangers of childhood obesity are well-chronicled, many children who are overweight or obese don’t realize it. That’s why the Oldham County Family YMCA — a leading voice on improving health — wants families to understand the role weight perception plays in childhood obesity and ways to reverse course through increased physical activity and improved eating habits.

    Concert a great event

    Last Saturday night, La Grange was the winner in oh so many ways! The Rawlings family’s vision of providing La Grange a location for community events was unveiled at the Dedication Concert of the new CityPlace.

  • Experiencing an Indiana Friday Night

    For the first time in our 22-year parenting career, hubby and I attended a Friday night high school football game. Never having a kid on the team, I have not been compelled to spend my time on cold, metal bleachers.

    But this past Friday was an entirely different matter. Our daughter was on the homecoming court, so I donned my heaviest sweater, grabbed a couple of blankets and we headed to the game. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, so I asked, “Where is the best place to sit so that we have a good view?”
