  • OCS reading program helps prevent ‘summer slide’

    Reading is a skill that is crucial to student success, both in the classroom and beyond. In fact, it is a skill so important that reading is one of our board of education’s six goals.

  • Voters should tune into the political process

    In just about a month, voters in Kentucky will take center stage in America.

    The entire country is watching the McConnell-Grimes senatorial race and I hope we don’t embarrass ourselves.

    Sadly, voter turnout is notoriously low in parts of Kentucky, Oldham County being no exception. If one-third of all registered voters actually make it to the polls, it is considered a strong turnout. I think we can do better than that.

  • Deciding whether or not to believe in miracles

    The mother asks her son what he learned in Sunday School and he tells her a story about how Moses and his people had the Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptian chariots behind them.

    The mother looks on in horror, and exclaims, “That is not really what they taught you in Sunday School is it?”
