  • Tournament is a big hit

    Last week, North Oldham Little League hosted the Kentucky Little League Baseball State Tournament at Walsh Park in La Grange. 22 teams came from different areas of Kentucky and two from North Oldham Little League participated and competed for the state championships. Congratulations to our own 11-Year-Olds for winning the state championship.
    Every team and their fans from all over Kentucky got to experience what great facilities, the concession stand food and the great atmosphere at Walsh Park in La Grange that North Oldham Little League gets to experience everyday.

  • Time to defund Planned Parenthood

    Warning: graphic content and conversation here. No, this isn’t about Donald Trump’s latest insults, but rather a more serious subject that he doesn’t consider “one of his issues.” I’m talking about the sanctity of human life. More specifically, the undercover videos that caught Planned Parenthood officials discussing abortion extraction methods best suited to preserving in-demand fetal organs for research.

  • Making beautiful memories
  • Dusting off and doctoring the resume
  • Can my cross be padded and a bit smaller?
  • Turning over a new leaf

     Recently, I turned over a new leaf.  Once you turn a leaf over, it is sometimes hard to keep it from flipping back. But this one has stayed on the flipside for over 10 days, so I’m feeling optimistic. 

    I had been listening to friends discuss the dilemma of the toothpaste tube.  

    “Are you an end squeezer or a middle squeezer?” they asked. 

  • Learning to deal with tough times

     My main premise is that the most creative, healing and human way for a person to reckon with tough times is by living in the present with others, borrowing light from the past and hope from the future.

  • Words every son needs to hear from Dad

     I had breakfast with my Dad and my brother.  We laughed.  We talked about serious things.  It was one of those breakfasts that fathers and sons are supposed to have, but rarely do.  

    The three of us are richly blessed that we can do that together, and always look forward to doing it.  A story came up that I think surprised us so muchthat we all remembered it.
