  • Knowing how to say thanks in any language is a blessing
  • Learning to have faith

    What is going to happen in the future? A lot of people are wondering and a lot of people are afraid. I find many who are haunted by discouragement and despair. They see nothing good ahead. Many people see no reason to live, but one does not have to be the victim of tomorrow. I believe one can take a firm hold of the future and be the master of it.

  • Cooking Thanksgiving vegetables

    Thanksgiving, one of the best truly American holidays, is fast approaching, with food, fellowship, family and fun. Food is the highlight followed by being thankful for all of our blessings. The typical Thanksgiving meal consists of turkey with dressing (stuffing), vegetables and pies. There are lots of instructions for cooking turkey so I won’t instruct you.

  • Letter to the Editor: Nov. 6

    Every person who joins the service must take an oath to our Nation. Some are a little different if you’re an officer but all must take this oath “I (your name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. And that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

  • Where did we get the Old Testament?

    Perhaps you have seen it in a store or someone emailed it to you. I have a copy of the HillBilly Ten Commandments. We can all appreciate the simplicity they reveal. There are a number of versions, but mine go like this: 1) Just one God. 2) Put nothin’ before God. 3) Watch yer mouth. 4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin’. 5) Honor yer Ma and Pa. 6) No killin’. 7) No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal. 8) Don’t take what ain’t yers. 9) No tellin’ tales and gossipin’. 10) Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff.

  • The changing dynamics of Oldham County Schools

    We are entering a time of change here in Oldham County Schools. Our commitment to excellence and to ensuring the learning of every child remains constant, but who those children are continues to change.

    This summer, I shared some of these changing demographics with principals to prepare for the school year. Many of us see these changes on a small scale — in our child’s school or in our neighborhood, perhaps — but never get to see the big picture.
