  • Leave the fear and worrying to God

    Two gas company service men, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee were out checking meters. They parked their truck at the end of the alley and then worked their way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watches the two men as they check her gas meter.

  • Letters to the Editor: Right to Work

    Supporting RTW

    Last week, the Oldham County Fiscal Court started the process of passing a local Right to Work law for Oldham County. Like many county governments across the state, Oldham County is working to stand out among its peers and create opportunities that bring new jobs and new business to our community.

    This Right to Work ordinance is not a policy against unions. It does not eliminate or limit union representation. Most importantly, it does NOT keep union companies from considering Oldham County as a site for new business.

  • Cupid plays too many practical jokes

    As I sit here eating my way through my second bag of Conversation Hearts, trying to ignore the fact that there are 60 calories per serving and 34 servings in a bag, I reflect back on what made this Valentine’s Day so “special.” What exactly brought me to this lowly state of sugar binging?

    Hubby and I don’t have a great Valentine’s history. Out of 26 (or is it 27 now?), years since he became my valentine, we have had probably three good ones. Actually, make that two. I forgot about that year there was a rat in our dinner.

  • Time to stop double taxing Social Security

    On Jan. 28, I introduced the Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act (H.R. 589). This bill would assist our struggling middle class by eliminating an unnecessary and unjust double-tax on seniors.
