    Upset with school taxes

    In the letter 12/12 to the editor, Mr. Maggio seems to think that Oldham school taxes are fair, far from it.

    It is not easy as a senior citizen living on social security. Of my annual social security, one month of my income is consumed by the Oldham County school tax, not to mention tax on the water and phone bills.

  • Santa Letters Dec. 19

    Dear Santa,

    My name is Anderson and I have been a good 2 year old boy. I sing Christmas songs to my family and friends to make them happy. I also am a good listener except when I knocked over the Christmas Tree. For Christmas I want Batman sheets, so he can keep me safe like my dad. I will leave out cookies and milk in my cup so you don’t spill.

    Love, Anderson Parrott

    Dear Santa,

  • Oldham Countian sees success as Bush aide

    Anyone know who from Oldham County attended Nelson Mandela’s funeral on Air Force One this week? Who was backstage at the Tonight Show a couple of weeks ago, or who is leaving for Africa again tomorrow?

    Let me assure you, it was not any of our local elected officials. It is not even any of the current residents.

  • THE BASIC INGREDIENT OF HOPE

    Turning on a light is my cue to practice hope. When I plant a seed or a bulb, I am reminded to plant hope in my heart. Whenever I meet people who are thrashing about in gloom and doom I vow to hold up the banner of hope.

  • Army food dreams

    In 1962 the good doin’ U.S. Army took me out of Philadelphia and put me into a strange place. It had strange people, strange food and strange language. It was South Carolina. I was there 16 to 17 weeks and got to like it. I even got used to and enjoyed grits (something I never saw growing up in the north).

  • My Living Will – Character Counts in Life

    When do you think this news headline was written? “Gambling, robbery, sexual immorality and violence are prevalent. Half of all children are born out of wedlock; purity and fidelity to the marriage vow are sneered out of fashion. Corruption in politics is rampant. The world is broken.” This was written in 1694.
