Today's Opinions

  • Your life is worth remembering

    As I think of the final years of my parents’ lives, I note that they were characterized by a continually failing ability to remember.

    With my dad and his dementia, it was mostly short-term events and people that would not come back to him.

    With Mom suffering from late stage Alzheimer’s, she has lost almost all recall of the distant past, or a few seconds earlier.

  • Reader: ‘Even Bridge Hill was drivable’

    To the editor:

    On Sunday night (Dec. 27) my family and I were making our way home from Hurstbourne Lane to Crestwood. Driving on the “Gene Slider” was a mess. There wasn’t one salt truck to be seen and the condition of the roads were terrible. 

    Numerous wrecks and people sliding off the road all due to icy roads that were not treated before or during a wintry mix.

    While driving down Ky. 146 heading towards Crestwood there was a sight to be seen. 

  • Thriving and flourishing

    Every year I receive a Christmas card from a former favorite teacher who always says he hopes I’m thriving and flourishing. I always tell him that I am. For I believe that I have been blessed to have been around many folks I call my heroes for everyday living who have taught me the lesson of “thriveability.” 

  • This holiday season seems different

    To the editor:

    It would be an understatement for me to say this is one of the most distressed Christmas holiday seasons most of us have had to endure. Normally during this time of year people are more concerned with shopping, baking cookies, putting up decorations, taking pictures of precious moments, scheduling all the holiday festivities and spending time with friends and family. Not this year. 

  • Three famous questions will help to cope with tough-to-understand situations

    I was required to major in philosophy during seminary. At first I resisted. But the more I understood that a philosopher is a person seeking wisdom or enlightenment, the more value I discovered in philosophy. 

    I studied and learned about Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher, who provided his three famous questions to ask when we are dealing with difficult things. The three questions that deal with our questioning of our assumptions are:

    • What can I know?

    • What should I do?

    • What may I hope?

  • Promote Oldham County thoroughbreds, racing

    To the editor:

    My Christmas wish is for Sen.  Harris to promote Kentucky Proud/Oldham County thoroughbred racing and breeding to the same extent he does our Christmas trees.

    Use locally-made ingredient in pecan pie

    To the editor,

    Regarding Virginia Stoess’ favorite pecan pie – the second ingredient calls for a cup of light karo syrup.

    I would suggest Bob White/White Syrup. It is manufactured right here in Buckner and is made by Oldham Countians with pride.

    Crestwood traffic needs a better solution

    To the editor:

    As a commuter who got stuck in traffic Dec. 1 because yet another truck got stuck on the elevated railroad crossing at Railroad Avenue in Crestwood, and now routinely sits in traffic in the morning at a new four-way stop where Crestwood Elementary’s new parking lot exit joins Ky. 146 and Ky. 146 at another crossing,  it’s time to suggest to Crestwood’s city fathers and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet how to fix a growing traffic problem.
