  • Spammon: breakfast of champions

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    “What do you want for breakfast,” I asked eight-year-old son. 

    “Salmon.”

    “We don’t have salmon.” 

    “I mean spammon…errr…Spam. I always get Spam and salmon mixed up.” 

  • Letter to the Editor - Feb 25, 2016

    Kudos to Coach Simpson
    What traits must a coach exhibit to be considered exceptional?
    There are a countless number of athletic coaches that have withstood the test of time and proven themselves as good and successful coaches, great teachers of the X’s & O’s and consistent winners.
    But what makes a good or great coach stand out even further from the pack? What makes a mentor to young men and women truly exceptional? What makes them shine when directly compared to highly overpaid, upper echelon coaches that are worshipped even as they fall woefully short as role models?

  • What is faith healing?

          I went to the hospital to meet someone who I didn’t know, but I had been told they were dying of a lung disease.  We talked about Jesus Christ, and getting right with Him not only for that day, but also for all eternity.  

  • There’s a new editor in town

    By Machaela Ballard

     When this column is printed in the paper, it will be my seventh day as the news editor of The Oldham Era. What an honor!

    I must say, I have only known this area for a few months but I have already fallen in love with it. When I hear that train rolling through La Grange, I smile every time (I hear that will wear off at some point, but I’m not so sure).

  • Imperfect life, perfect hair

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    This past year has been difficult, to say the least.  Becoming a single mom after 24 years of marriage, redesigning my life, creating an entirely new future than the one I had always envisioned…all of this has wrought a great deal of stress in my life.  

  • Choose to accept who you are

     This year I did a different type of New Year’s resolution.  Instead of thinking something was wrong with me and resolving to improve, I resolved to accept myself.   I dedicated myself to see the good within myself, instead of the negative, for all of 2016.
