Today's Opinions

  • Balancing tension

    Have you ever watched a tight-rope walker? Maybe you noticed the performer carries a balance bar. Ever so carefully he moves the bar from side-to-side in order to keep his balance Now life is something like this for us. You and I are negotiating the difficult, if different, courses of our lives. 

    Life means action and action means other people. Other people mean that there will be some friction, and friction often results in stress. Some of this stress is helpful and positive. Some of it is negative and harmful. We badly need our balance bars.

    To the editor:

    In September 2005, we started LOCAL Transit. 

    Our intent was to provide a new service that would benefit Oldham County residents. Most know we are a small, but dedicated nonprofit agency which focuses on those who use our services. 

    We do what we do because of our Christian faith and commitment.

  • Our thoughts become you

    What people think about determines what they are. Hawthorne tells about the boy, Ernest, who would look longingly at the great stone face on the side of the mountain. It was a strong, kind, honorable face that thrilled the heart of this boy. 

    There was a legend that some day a man would appear who would look like the great stone face. Through all his childhood, and even after he became a man, Ernest kept looking at the great face and for the man who was like it.

    Historic district guidelines are clear

    To the editor:

    I’m shocked at David  Voegele’s choice of adjectives when describing behavior of the La Grange Historic District Commission. (Letters to the Editor, Aug. 13 edition).

    The council meeting included an appeal of the decision by the LHDC to deny a certificate of appropriateness for a sign. 

    The historic district guidelines, available at the city of La Grange Web site, are clear.  

  • Not born to run

     I’m not a runner.

    I never have been. Never in my history have I been that person who wakes up before the sun for a quick morning run. Honestly, I’d prefer to never be that person who wakes up before the sun’s out at all.

    County is fortunate to be part of Ironman

    To the editor:

    The following are comments heard during the Ironman Triathlon last year:

    “We are so glad you are open.”

    “Sometimes shops in small towns are closed during Ironman.”

    “What a charming town!”

    Gallery 104 was filled with customers the day of Ironman 2008.

    Imagine La Grange as a vacation destination for visitors from around the world.This is what we have during the Ironman competition.

  • Remembering a great man

    I used to play baseball, and my Dad went to the games because he was always interested in whatever his children did. I remember one game especially. It was a tight game, and I happened to get a long hit. I was running around the bases as fast as I could, but I seemed to gain added strength when I heard him shouting above the crowd, “Come on home, Bob, come on home.”

    There’s no place like home to find Miss OC

    To the editor:

    I wonder if most people realize our newly crowned Miss Oldham County 2009 is from Henry County. I am appalled our county is not represented by a resident who actually lives in Oldham County.
