  • BOB MUELLER: How to get the most out of dying

    Several years ago I wrote an article called “How to Get the Most out of Living” which I have developed into a talk I give to various groups.
    At a recent talk a woman who knows I have been in hospice work for many years said, “You should write an article about how to get the most out of dying.” So here are 10 ways to do so:
    Live and let die – This doesn’t mean living without caring about other people. It just means just letting go and let death happen as it inevitably will. Look at death as a natural part of living.

  • BOB MUELLER: Don’t get ahead of your nose

    No matter what we do or how perfect our input, the fact is, we are never in control of the outcome of any situation.
    Even when we know that we cannot count on a particular result, we tend to expect things to turn out as we’d planned.
    And when they don’t, we will look for someone to blame. Some of us are terrific at blaming ourselves and then feeling unnecessary guilt or shame. That’s how hard it is to believe that outcomes are not controllable.

  • LETTER: Superintendent needs to answer to taxpayers

    To the editor:
    I have been following the story of children from outside of the Oldham County school district attending our schools. I have a couple of questions which I feel the taxpayers need to have answered by the superintendent.
    1. Of the money which the school system received from the state for the “out-of-district” students attending Oldham County Schools, how much has been returned to the state?

  • GINGER: The tapestry of time

    I distinctly remember that moment, 12 years ago, when I plunked my final diaper purchase onto the conveyor belt at Wal-Mart.
    My 2-year-old daughter was potty-trained, and I had decided that after she finished one more pack of diapers, I would let her wear undies.
    I etched the moment into my mind because I knew it was a milestone in life.
    There are many “last times” that go unnoticed when you are parenting, but because she was my last child, I did my best to pay attention and burn those moments into my memory.
    Fast forward eight years.

  • BOB MUELLER: When we have blessedness within our soul, nothing on earth can touch us

    Today’s Americans have more to make their lives easier than any people who have ever lived. We live in the finest houses, wear the nicest clothing and eat the best food that any generation has ever known.

    Yet, at the same time, so many of us take it all for granted instead of for gratitude.

    Why do we take for granted the many blessings we have? Why do we fail to be more thankful?
