  • LETTER: Local business serves tornado ravaged area with kindness

    To the editor:
    In the wake of the terrible storms March 2, there are a few guys in our own backyard that everyone needs to know about.
    Many of you know Amin Gunzalez and his brothers at the Buckner Marathon.
    I started going there regularly about a year ago and I think the world of them. I call him Sunshine and he calls me Moonshine (not real sure about that, but oh well). He always has a smile on his face and most of the time is singing or laughing. “Singing” is a loose term here.

  • LETTER: Want liquor? Go somewhere else

    To the editor:
    As a native of Oldham County and a Christian, I have an obligation to voice my opinion. I cannot vote on the liquor issue because I do not live in the city.

  • GINGER: My love will linger on, always

    Twenty-one years ago, when hubby and I were planning our wedding, I wasn’t really sure how to go about choosing songs. I knew I didn’t want recorded music, but finding sheet music was a bit difficult.
    Back in those days, we didn’t have the benefit of Googling the lyrics.
     We have never really had a song that we refer to as “our song.” Our song changes with each stage of our relationship. When we first began dating, we listened to a lot of Roger Miller.

  • BOB MUELLER: Open your mind

    Native Kentuckian Abraham Lincoln has always been my favorite president. I have read countless books and articles about his universal empathy. Lincoln demonstrated time and time again “a singular ability to transcend personal vendetta, humiliation or bitterness.”
    Emulating Lincoln’s magnanimous empathy is not easy. The key to developing the same open-mindedness in ourselves is to start small.
    If people make you angry, instead of immediately spouting off, put yourself in their shoes.
    Why are they behaving the way they are?

  • LETTER: Severe weather, ice left students at the mercy of Mother Nature

    To the editor,
    Friday’s tornado devastation was tragic. It is frightening to think that it could, by the flip of a coin, have been Oldham County.
    For this reason, I am perplexed as to why Oldham County Schools’ administrators did not dismiss our children early, but rather pushed the envelope on how late they held our children.
    There were still children on busses when the warning sirens began.
