  • Heart recipient grateful for donor’s gift

     April was Organ Donor Awareness Month. As a recent heart recipient, I want to share the letter I sent to my donor family. I hope this touches your life and you will consider becoming an organ donor— a decision to give others a second chance at life.

  • Racism: The next great challenge for humanity

     Exodus begins with a brief description of how the Egyptians, out of fear, forced the Hebrew people into slavery. In Exodus 1:8-11 it is written, “Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, ‘Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor.”

  • Don’t take voting lightly

     Election Day is less than one week away. On Tuesday, the voters of Oldham County will be making some very important selections on some very important elected positions throughout this community. 

  • The Second Commandment

     In Exodus 20:4-6 it is written, “You shall not make for yourself an idol... for I, the Lord, your God, am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those that reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love and keep my commandments.” 

  • Letters To The Editor

    Officials lack vision for county’s future To the editor: I am disheartened by Oldham County officials’ lack of vision when it comes to the county’s future.  At a time when people in ever-increasing numbers are seeking out locally grown foods and a slower pace of life – attributes which still abound in Oldham County – our leadership is focused on stale planning models that are out of sync with current trends.

  • Fendley has ‘excellent record,’ ‘outstanding reputation’

    To the editor:

    This letter is written to strongly urge the re-election of John Fendley as Oldham County Attorney. John has an excellent record and an outstanding reputation. He has the even-handed, no-nonsense approach to problem solving so necessary to correctly fill this position.

    I admire and respect John. He is a man of honor and integrity. He is worthy of our trust and well qualified to serve. It is important that we all vote but, moreover, we need to vote for the best candidate. I sincerely believe the best man for the job is John Fendley.
