  • Being thankful for some, not all, technological advances

    As I was driving to work last week on one of those particularly cold mornings, my car beeped at me and alerted me to the fact I only had enough gas to get 10 more miles down the road.

    I pulled into the next closest gas station, fought the frigid gusts of wind to get the pump started, then hightailed it back into the car to snuggle into my heated seat. Then I texted a co-worker on my cell phone that I would be just a few minutes late getting to the office.

    Later it occurred to me the scene would have been entirely different just 20 years ago.

  • Don’t forget small business Saturday

    Gallup did a survey this summer. It asked people how much confidence they had in various institutions.

  • Letters to the Editor: Thanks to road department

    On Monday, Nov. 17, the snow brought down limbs from one of our trees and blocked Barkwood Dr. A neighbor called the Oldham County Road Dept. and a crew came right out and pushed the limbs out of the road. On Wednesday, Nov. 19, the road crew came out and removed the limbs from our yard. Here’s a big thank you to the road crews for your great service.

    Thanks to voters

    I am Jim Key. I ran for Magistrate in District 6.

  • Sometimes, you can’t have it your way

    As I sit here at my favorite local restaurant, I am reminded how nice it is to live in a place where I can order what I want and the servers never argue with me. This might seem odd in a country where “have it your way” is a major marketing slogan, but after two months in Berlin, Germany, I realize we are truly lucky.

    The German people tend to be very rigid and that carries over to the food service industry. Hubby noticed it first.
