  • GUEST COLUMN: Why drivers ride the bus

    According to Advertising Age, a top magazine for trend analysis, the automobile is rapidly becoming less relevant to an increasing number of people younger than 30. 

    Reasons for this change include telecommuting, high fuel prices and environmental concerns.

    Bad news for the auto industry may be good news for public transportation services. But, not so fast, that doesn’t mean everyone endorses the need for public transit.

  • Honor service men and women

    As Veterans Day approaches, we recognize the sacrifices made by all our veterans, and thank them for their service to our country.
    As your representative and a veteran, I make every effort to make sure the men and women who have served our nation in uniform get the respect, treatment, services and benefits that they deserve.
    Unemployment remains unacceptably high for all Americans, but the jobless rate among veterans is consistently higher than the nation at large.

  • LETTER: Hank Williams Jr. used his first amendment rights

    To the editor:
    I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened the Oct. 13 edition of The Oldham Era.

    The political cartoon made me think I was reading The Courier Journal ... Hank Williams Jr. was comparing playing golf with two famous terrorists of our time – or at least, this 69-year-old man’s time.  ... We saw the results, nothing, came out of the golf game, but a golf game. 

    No political decisions made other than bogies, jokes, and do-overs.

  • MUELLER: Savor each moment

    Simplicity is less about the material things you own than it is about maintaining the pleasures that knit you into the sturdy fabric of life.
    While television can be a pleasure when it energizes, encourages, instructs and inspires, too often it is a passive way to zone out. After a night of watching television, you rarely hear, “Wow, that was so great. I had the time of my life.” True pleasures reconnect you to the web of life, rather than disconnecting you and dropping you into an electronic twilight zone.
