  • Summer’s here, time to cook some burgers

    Summer is here and it is time to enjoy burgers on a grill.

  • Seeking World War II vets from Oldham County

    A few weeks ago I wrote about Honor Flights. Since then, a group of Oldham County residents has begun work to identify World War Two veterans who live in Oldham County. The group wants to make sure that all Oldham County veterans that are eligible for Honor Flights are able to participate.

    Honor Flights take veterans, free of charge, to Washington DC to visit the World War Two Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial (the Marine Memorial).

  • Mueller: The art of making connections

    In a world of increasing isolation, many of us want to reconnect with the people and the aspirations that are important to us. “Field of Dreams” is a film I love about a man who does just that. Ray Kinsella, an Iowa farmer with a wife and young daughter, hears a mysterious voice telling him to build a baseball field in his cornfield. Even though this means putting his family in financial jeopardy Ray follows orders, believing, as the voice put it, “If you build it, he will come.” Actually, many people come.

  • Truitt: Please don’t take my easy bake oven

    I often say, even boastfully at times, that I don’t keep stuff. Years ago, I read a fantastic book called, Clutter’s Last Stand. It inspired me to regularly de-clutter my home, throwing away, giving away and donating things that are no longer needed. I love the satisfaction of knowing that I hauled away 16 garbage bags totaling 560 gallons of stuff, which means I have acquired 560 gallons worth of space in my home. But as much as I would like to think I’m on top of it, I was recently faced with the truth of my clutter.

  • Earley: Building others up

    A woman took her family reunion pictures to a photo lab to have them touched up a bit. While discussing the project the clerk said, “We can do amazing things with these photos. We can remove wrinkles and make you look 30 pounds lighter.”

    The woman responded, “You can? Can you put them on my sister?”
