  • Veterans recognition event cancelled

    To the editor:

    It was with some concern that I learned last week that my cancellation notice for the 2013 Annual Veterans Recognition Event had not been printed by The Oldham Era this past week or the week before.

    For several reasons, it was necessary for me to cancel this year’s event, and the newspaper had promised to publish the notice to that effect. It was my goal to inform readers that, after seven years of hosting this event on the second Thursday in August, I am unable this year to hold it.

  • NOHS substance abuse policy oppressive

    To the editor:

    As registration for the new school year draws near, NOHS parents should take a close reading of the Student Code of Conduct. Principal Jarrett has pushed through two noteworthy changes dealing with extracurricular activities and use of banned substances:

    1. The penalty for the first violation is now suspension for 50 percent of the current sports season.

  • Don’t cultivate greed

    The seeds of greed are present in every human heart.  In some, these seeds subtly take root and gradually begin to influence our decisions, preventing us from achieving what we value most.

    In others, they grow into giant weeds that choke the joy out of life. Greed is a deep longing for something that drives us to the point where we are willing to do whatever it takes to acquire it.
