  • Acts of Service

    Have you ever asked yourself how come the world, with all its complex structures, hasn’t collapsed? It is a miracle that this unimaginably complex system goes on without plunging into total chaos.

  • Truitt: Reliving my teenage dreams of Ricky Schroder

    Recently, I was perusing my junior high yearbooks when I found the following inscription from 1983: “Gingeretta, you’d make a gorgeous model, ya know. I think Ricky Schroder doesn’t know what he’s been missing! Someday, when you’re a rich, famous model, and I’m a rich, famous writer, I’ll call you and say, ‘Come on up to my penthouse for some champagne!’ Have a smashing summer!!! Luv, Jo”

  • Earley: A Parade For a Unique King

    Jesus’ preaching ministry is winding down. He has healed the sick, the lame and the blind, has raised people from the dead, walked on water, calmed the storm, fed thousands with a few loaves and fish and taught them about God’s never ending love. He also embarrassed the religious elite repeatedly, while threatening their system of power with all their laws and sacrifices. They want him dead. He told his disciples they would get their wish over and over again before they got there.

  • 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.

    “But mom! What about dinner?”

    Seriously. Why do they insist on eating three times a day? And how, after twenty-one years of parenting, do I still occasionally forget to feed them?

    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.
