  • Antsy in Amsterdam leads to balance

     I was on my first day of vacation traveling from Louisville to Amsterdam and having a very antsy night. I was beside myself in a tiny, narrow, confining hotel space with a racing mind that wanted to keep doing rather than just being and with a thought process that just wouldn’t let go.

     Keep Oldham County dry

    It’s obvious that Voegele’s attempt to push for alcohol sales in Oldham County is not desired by most residents. Residents are proud of our county for being dry. To date, it remains a safe place to raise your children.

  • The punishment for our sins was paid by Jesus

     In I Corinthians 6:19-20, Paul writes some amazing words, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

    By Karen Wyatt 

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness month — a good time for women to pay special attention to their overall health.

     I know that conscience is something hard to explain and, whatever it is, it must be learned and developed.  Some people have done very evil things, yet they were following what they thought was their conscience.  But after psychologists have said all they can in explaining the human conscience (and some of them even explain it completely away) still we recognize a voice within saying, “This is right; that is wrong.”

  • Voegele announces special election for alcohol sales

     By David Voegele, Oldham County Judge-Executive

    Last year, the Oldham County Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development announced plans to initiate a petition drive to hold a special election to determine whether retail alcohol sales should be permitted in all of Oldham County. The Chamber’s petition drive began April 10 of this year.

     Questioning special election

    I’m not sure why we have special elections.  

    It would be much easier to get the real will of the people, for any particular issue, by putting it on or with the November ballot.  I can’t see it helping anyone but the people who want to push the issue to make money from it.  This time it is a wet county.
