  • Have you been born again?

    One day, when Vice President Calvin Coolidge was presiding over the Senate, one senator angrily told another to go “straight to hell.” The offended senator complained to Coolidge as presiding officer and Coolidge looked up from the book he had been leafing through while listening to the debate and wittily replied. “I’ve looked through the rule book,” he said, “You don’t have to go.”

  • Separating smoke from fire at NOFD

    As any good firefighter knows, where there’s smoke, there could be a fire.

    The problem for residents of North Oldham is that the smoke is currently coming from their own firehouse.

    It started weeks ago, when the contract of current North Oldham Fire Chief David Stoltz wasn’t renewed. A 30-year veteran of the department who started as a volunteer, it seems unnatural that Stoltz would depart out of the blue.

  • Gay marriage a ‘foregone conclusion’

    I don’t have any gay friends. At least I don’t think I do. I don’t really even know any gay people. I have some acquaintances who I suspect may be gay or that someone may have told me were gay. But no one has ever personally told me they were gay, so I don’t “know.” How would I know unless I asked them and that would just be rude and none of my business.

    So I have no close knowledge of the gay marriage issue and no personal knowledge of gay people yearning for marriage equality.

  • It’s fresh veggie season

    This is the perfect time of year to cook with fresh vegetables. Most vegetables are in season now, so cook, can and freeze those vegetables. What is in season? Squash, eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, lettuce, cabbage, greenbeans, peppers and cucumbers... almost every vegetable.
