  • LETTER: Justice delayed by mistrial

    To the editor:
    On February 1, 2009, my step-son was killed in La Grange. Here it is July 28, 2011 and this case has never come to trial. My wife and I have been to court in La Grange over 40 times in the past two and a half years.
    It seems that once the case was to come to trial the judge, Karen Conrad, declared it a mistrial and laid it over until March 2012.

  • COLUMN: The American dream is alive and well

    He’s the embodiment of the American Dream. Poor, handicapped, immigrant, yet through established principles has risen to the top in his field. His name is Dennis Ogbe.

    Dennis was the featured speaker at a Rotary meeting I attended not long ago. Whereas history is full of examples like his, it was great to hear and see one up close.

  • COLUMN: Standing on a firm foundation this fourth of July

    Is He a part or is He not? Was He ever a part of U.S. history, or was He never mentioned?
    A recent flap over NBC’s intentional omission of the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance during the U.S. Open brought to the fore once again the debate over whether any reference to God should be part of the public discourse.

  • LETTER: EMS employees want best care for residents

    To the editor:
    As employees of Oldham County EMS, we feel we’ve been unfairly portrayed recently by various media outlets as complaint-driven individuals who are resisting any change within OCEMS.

  • MUELLER: Giving comes first

    After we are born, we develop the basic flaw of self-centeredness. We think the world revolves around us and everyone else is here to make us comfortable and happy.
    First, we get all our needs taken care of and then we start getting things from these people.

  • GINGER: Thank God I didn’t know

    As the sun creeps up over the horizon, I watch the two youngest of my five children, sleeping peacefully after a difficult night of illness and unrest. I am exhausted, but it is necessary to get on with my day.
    I pause for a moment and think back on my decision to have my tubal reversed.

  • COLUMN: The Four Way Test provides a one-way ticket to civility

    The Rotary International’s Four Way Test is a real winner. As a member of the South Oldham Rotary, every week before our meeting we recite The Four Way Test of the Things we Think, say, and do.
    First, Is it the Truth?
    Second, Is it Fair to all concerned?
    Third, Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

  • LETTER: Produce vendor exiled; what (or who?) is next?

    To the editor:
    When I was a child and stayed at my grandmother’s every Saturday morning, a big blue school bus would park on the street.
    It was owned by a gentleman we children knew only as Mr. Charlie, his actual last name escapes me after all these years. He’d open the school bus doors and drop a little stairstep out.
