Today's Opinions

  • Voegele is an excellent leader

    To the editor:

  • Candidate disappointed in newspaper contest

    To the editor:

    In the April 22 edition, The Oldham Era printed a big supplement entitled, “Best of Oldham County” which announced the winners of a local contest intended to identify reader favorites in a wide variety of categories.

  • Lessons from geese

     Dr. Robert McNeish wrote “Lessons from Geese” as part of a sermon in 1972. Since then it has been reprinted in many forms. I share these entertaining insights with Biblical thoughts to reflect upon. 

  • An Earley Merry Christmas

    The pastor took his customary place at the back of the church to greet the Easter crowd. As usual, the crowd had swelled to fill the sanctuary.

    The pastor saw a friend whom he knew came to church only Christmas and Easter, and said, “Hi John, I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ since I probably won’t see you here again before that.”

    John muttered on the way home, “Won’t see me until Christmas! I’ll show him!”

  • Letter To the Editor

    To the editor:

    A ridiculous controversy has ensued lately about Elsie Carter’s “Mayor on Patrol” car, a retired police cruiser adorned with clown-like markings that our mayor drives around town.

    Earlier this month, Carter’s friend (and our superintendent of public works) Darleen Rusnak, told The Courier-Journal that the idea for the vehicle came from an unsuccessful applicant for the city’s police department who blamed Carter for his not getting hired and called her “Mayor on Patrol.”

  • Letters To The Editor

    Donations to park are appreciated

    To the editor:

    The board of Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky Inc. appreciated the article in the April 1 edition of The Oldham Era about the program and looks forward to the park’s development.

    Support for the park may be in the form of a donation or a $2,000 sponsorship of one the markers that will provide information about a war/campaign where Americans fought and died serving their     country.

  • The rewards of volunteering

    I ‘ve volunteered for many different organizations over the years including Hosparus, Home of the Innocents, Rotary and various churches. Each time I volunteer, I receive far more than I give. We have some 400 volunteers at Hosparus of Louisville. They constantly give thanks for being a hospice volunteer because of all they receive from the experience. We’re grateful for their work and are humbled by their willingness to serve.

  • From the inside out

    Jesus said to his disciples, “...in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but cheer up, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

    On a spectacular spring day, Mom and her 6-year-old son were working in the garden. Mom was absorbed in her work while the little boy explored the miracle of growing things exploding everywhere. He picked up a daffodil bud and studied it. Then with his two little hands he tried to force it open into full blossom.
