     Keep Oldham County Dry

     

    How dry I am, How dry I am

    And that’s how I wanna stay,

    But how wet we’ll be if on December 29th

    You don’t stand with me.

  • The sweetest victory celebration of all

     When my children were all teenagers and young adults, Christmas had lost its magic.  

    No grandchildren were blessing my life yet, and I was going through the motions of being excited about Christmas.  

    Truth be told, I couldn’t wait for Christmas to be over so things would slow down and I could relax.  I knew that as a minister this was an inappropriate response to Christmas, but I wasn’t going to just start making up feelings either.  

  • Three sobering realities

     Sometimes when my ego or the ego of others becomes too prominent I find that I have to remind myself of three sobering realities.  It’s all about humility.  The moment you think you have acquired humility is just the moment you have lost it.

    The first reality is that everything I am, I have received from others.

  • Historic vote for county

    By Scott Whitehouse

    Oldham County voters have the opportunity on Dec. 29 to cast a historic vote in a special election.  Please vote “yes” to allow the sale of packaged alcoholic beverages in Oldham County.

     On Dec. 5, 1933 Prohibition ended in the United States. Eighty-two years later we have the chance to make the sale of packaged alcoholic beverages available to consumers in Oldham County.

  • A December birthday celebration

    By Ginger Lumpkin

       I’ve got a birthday coming up!  On Dec. 20, I will turn 46 years old. 

    Most people born at this time of year are like, “Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is for somebody to remember my December birthday.”

     A message of thanks

    As we are well into the celebration of Christ’s birth, it is time for each of us to personally reach out to thank those who have faithfully served us this past year.  

    Each of us must think of ways to thank those who delivered our paper and our mail, those who picked up our refuse and our recyclables and those who performed personal services for us.

  • Who is afraid of the Lord?

     The children were presenting the traditional Christmas pageant.  On the night of the performance the little boy playing the innkeeper was tired of being the bad guy who told Mary and Joseph, “There is no room in the inn.”
