  • Stroke is an emergency, know the signs

    For every hour that a stroke is untreated, 120 million irreplaceable brain cells die and the brain ages 3.6 years.

    Your quick response in recognizing stroke symptoms and calling for help is vital to your future health. Stroke is very treatable if you recognize the situation and seek help immediately.

    If you notice any of these signs, don’t hesitate. Call 911 immediately.

    • Severe headache

    • Sudden dizziness

    • Trouble seeing in one or both eyes

    • Sudden confusion

  • Wake up with anticipation

    How do you wake up in the morning? Do you dread the day ahead every day? Wake up with anticipation.

  • The potter and the clay: God is working on you

    Most of us have had the experience of working with clay. The lump of clay feels good in our hands as we work it and make it soft. Then we make it into something of our own creation. It probably isn’t very good by worldly standards, but we were probably impressed with what we made because we made it.

    One thing I can guarantee you is that the clay never told us what it wanted us to make it into.

    Jeremiah is inspired by God to use the powerful image of God as the potter and you and I as clay.

    School Bus Issues

    In the past few weeks, many parents have expressed concerns about late buses. We’d like to explain what is causing those issues and what we’re doing to alleviate them.

  • Legislators should step up for education

    It is true that our kids come first in Oldham County, not just in our school district, but across our entire community.

    Our general assembly has raised the bar by adopting higher standards of achievement — however, our legislators have not held themselves accountable by making the courageous decisions necessary to fund our education system at a level sufficient to meet these expectations. A lack of support at the state level is crippling our district, making it more and more difficult for us to do what we do best: ensuring the learning of every child.

  • Out with the old: Mattress makes a big difference

    After spending my entire married life on hand-me-down mattresses, except for that brief period with a rent-to-own deal, I was ecstatic about choosing a brand new set. We had been discussing it for ages, knowing instinctively that a number of our aches and pains would subside if we weren’t constantly fighting for the one spot in the bed that didn’t sag to the floor.

  • Cold weather cooking

    Well cold weather is here and I feel it more than I used to feel it. As a youngster I could stay out all day playing in the snow. Even cold weather activities like ice skating, skiing, ice hockey, hunting or football games didn’t bother me.

    This is the best time of the year for soup; it is good all year but there is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup when it’s cold outside. Soup makes a good meal with some good bread or crackers.
