    FOP Forum

    I saw an ad in the Oldham Era recently about an open meeting and attended the Fraternal Order of Police question and answer forum at the community center on the evening of Feb. 10.

    The meeting I attended must have been different for the one described in a letter to the paper by Bobbie Nelson. She said Judge Voegele acted like a bully. I didn’t see anything of the kind. He acted fine, but did object when the FOP leader said there would be no television cameras allowed, which I thought was the right thing to do.

  • Mueller: who do you appreciate in life?
  • Uncle Bob’s Derby Day Burgoo

    Derby Day is approaching and you are going to have some friends over for a party; what to serve? Maybe you don’t want to grill because it is still snowing outside. So, how about a real Kentucky tradition: Burgoo. It probably started as a hunters stew originally containing squirrel, rabbit, venison, turkey or any wild game with a combination of vegetables.

  • A child chooses its own baby book

    “Bedtime!” I announced with a feigned attempt to hide my glee.

  • Mueller: Letting tears flow is important to healing

    Several years ago I vacationed in southern Florida. Thousands of people were there relaxing and seeking a good time. One night, while walking down one of the brightly lit streets in Naples, I passed a Western Union office. It was deserted except for the clerk and a woman. She had a telegram in her hand and was crying her heart out. It reminded me that even in the land of good times and seas breezes, hearts can still be broken.
