  • Things I’d like to see

    There are many things I have had the joy of seeing in my lifetime – the Grand Canyon, Hawaii, some of the great cathedrals of Europe, the isle of Capri and the Canadian Rockies. There are many things I would still like to see – the Holy Land, Australia and New Zealand, the Greek isles, Germany and Victoria Falls. I want to continue to see my home happy and peaceful. I want to see the difference between right and wrong. Most of all, I want to see my Higher Power.

  • Goshen mayor’s ‘media ban’ misguided, unfair to his city

    Being a public official can be hard work.

    You have citizens pulling in every different direction, encouraging you to pass this ordinance or don’t pass that one. Do this or that. The managing of finances, clearing roads – this goes on and on.

    We get it, not everyone’s cut out to be an elected official. But if you’re going to run for and win the job, you can never, ever take your pail and shovel and go home.

    Well, unless you’re Goshen Mayor Bobby Thacker.

  • Finding healthy snacks once school begins

    It’s that time of year – back to school – and one of the challenges of family life during the busy school year is keeping you and your family on a healthy diet. Meals are rushed, lunches can be picked over and snacks are mostly grab-and-go. Here’s a few tips to keep kids eating healthy foods all school year round.

    Two stories

    Two weeks ago I read in The Oldham Era that the school Superintendent could not manage and needed another increase in taxes. School systems seem to have a hard time finding capable managers. The next time you have an increase in expenses just go to your boss and tell him/her that you are just going to have to start taking from the company. It works for the school superintendent.

  • Walks, talks in cemeteries to remain remembered

    I snapped a picture of the black, wrought iron gate and sent it to my family along with the text, “Exploring this old cemetery.”

    My aunt responded, “Why?”

    My question is, why would anyone not want to explore an old cemetery?

    I first spied it while riding my bike through the countryside with hubby. Back during our dating years, he readily explored cemeteries with me. Together, we would point out unusual tombstones, read inscriptions and make observations.

  • Theodicy - justice and eternity

    Over the last two weeks I have looked at why there is evil in God’s world that is created good. This week I ask the question, “How long does God have to work out justice?” Rabbi Shraga Simmons says, “The question of ‘why do bad things happen to good people’ has a lot to do with how we look at existence. The way we usually perceive things is like this: A ‘good life’ means that I make a comfortable living, I enjoy good health and then I die peacefully at age 80. That’s a good life. Anything else is ‘bad.’ ”
