  • Mueller: Don’t be a jerk and learning to ignore them

    How many times in any given day do you meet a jerk? Some people seem to go out of their way to be difficult, demanding, conflict-oriented, hostile or even obnoxious. How many seem to be such poor listeners that you wonder if you’re being heard at all? Some individuals even get a thrill out of threatening people with frivolous lawsuits.

  • TV not always worth the prize

    When I was a little kid I got to be on TV. I think the show was called Peggy’s Place or maybe Debbie’s World. I was only five, so I can’t be expected to remember everything, but here is what I do remember: my mom and aunt took me, my little sister and my cousin to the taping. We sat in the bleachers with a bunch of other kids and were promised a “fabulous prize” if we did what we were told.

    Walmart issues

    “Westport Road” is coming to Crestwood! Even after numerous citizens spoke in opposition of rezoning allowing Walmart to build off the 329 By-Pass, both the Oldham County Planning Commission and the Crestwood City Commission, with a majority vote, passed the rezoning. Our voices were NOT heard! Countless reasons against this 24-7 Walmart Supercenter were shared, but it was obvious minds had already been made up.

  • Mueller: The agony and the ecstasy of life

    Through the years I have visited many patients in hospitals. Often I have asked a patient the question, “Since you have been sick, what have people said to you?” And frequently I get one of three answers:

    1. The patient is told that there is something in his or her life which is displeasing to God. “In some way you have broken God’s law, and now, through this illness, God is telling you something.”

    Support Voegele

    Since there are no Democrats who have filed to run for office, the Primary Election on May 20 will determine our county officials for the next four years.

    My choice for Oldham County Judge-Executive is David Voegele. There is no doubt in my mind he has done a good job and been an excellent public servant.

    There have been many accomplishments.

  • Session winds down in Frankfort

    April 14, the Senate and House began the last two legislative days. During the veto period which was April 1 through April 11, the capitol remained relatively quiet. I have been working on finalizing the Road Plan, which funds projects for the next two years for our roads and bridges.

  • Earley: Jesus’ Resurrection is a sign of hope

    When Nikita Khrushchev died, a humorous story circulated in political circles. The Communist party had cast Mr. Khrushchev aside and was uncomfortable about burying his body on Soviet soil. So they called President Richard Nixon, but President Nixon had his own problems at the time and declined. Then the Soviet leaders tried Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel. She was agreeable but added, “I must warn you that this country has the world’s highest resurrection rate.”
