Opinion

  •  Each day you can get up, and make a difference in your life.

  •  Four years and one month ago I graduated from college. Four years before that, I graduated from high school.

  •  Perhaps the most talented church the apostle Paul started was in Corinth. This church had the most talented preachers and most enlightened teachers. Like Paul, we would expect a church like this to succeed, but the Corinthians split their church into factions, with the preachers and teachers grabbing their followers. 

  •  A billion children went to sleep hungry last night. People in the world lost family members yesterday whom they adored. There are people in our own community dying of cancer and AIDS. I just read about a little girl who was born without a face – just two eyes and a mouth. And we worry about traffic being heavy on the way to work.

  •  Co-worker impressed with Voegele’s campaign

  •  “I can’t for the life of me understand what is so great about this Indianapolis 500 stuff,” said one housewife to another. “They make a big hero out of the driver who is the first one to travel 500 miles by driving continuously in circles.” 

  •  It’s one thing to resist getting the hang of a smart phone. It’s quite another to allow fear of learning, or more precisely fear that you can’t learn, to get in the way of career success. 

  • The practice of kindness encompasses a range of small acts and habits that we know as old-fashioned good manners – saying “please” and “thank you,” waiting your turn, being on time, lending a helping hand, or cheering someone up with a smile. It applies not just to your relationships with other people. It extends to things, animals, plants and the earth.

    This practice also means being generous with your presence, your time and your money. Give freely without expecting anything in return. Just do it. Kindness is not a quid pro quo endeavor.

  • On Friday of this week, the Oldham-La Grange Development Authority and Talmage Hocker, president of The Hocker Group LLC, are expected to sign an agreement forming a partnership to develop the Oldham Reserve Business Campus. This will mark the first public/private partnership for both entities.

    Oldham Reserve is a 1,000-acre planned unit development located off of I-71 at exit 22 in La Grange. The campus will house a mixture of retail, office and residential uses.

  • We read in Psalm 119:8, “I will observe your statutes.” I like the Psalmist’s clear communication of what he “will” do. It is forceful and committed. “I will observe God’s statutes.” Notice he does not write, “I will try to observe God’s statutes.” “Try” is one of those words that we should tune our ear to so that when we use it, we question our commitment.

  •  Our Louisville MLS Report shows single family home sales from Jan. 1 to May 5, 2010,  and compares those sales to sales from Jan. 1 to May 5, 2009.

  • As the weather warms our minds naturally turn to thoughts of travel; whether it is to going to the beach or out of state to see family it is important for people with Diabetes to plan carefully when preparing for travel. With careful planning and a few special precautions you can ensure a trouble-free and enjoyable trip. When preparing for your trip it is recommended that you get a check-up. Also have documentation of what your current medical condition is along with a list of medications in case you should require emergency care.

  •  Several volunteered during ‘Day of Service’

  •  April was Organ Donor Awareness Month. As a recent heart recipient, I want to share the letter I sent to my donor family. I hope this touches your life and you will consider becoming an organ donor— a decision to give others a second chance at life.

  •  Exodus begins with a brief description of how the Egyptians, out of fear, forced the Hebrew people into slavery. In Exodus 1:8-11 it is written, “Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, ‘Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor.”

  •  Election Day is less than one week away. On Tuesday, the voters of Oldham County will be making some very important selections on some very important elected positions throughout this community. 

  •  In Exodus 20:4-6 it is written, “You shall not make for yourself an idol... for I, the Lord, your God, am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those that reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love and keep my commandments.” 

  • Officials lack vision for county’s future To the editor: I am disheartened by Oldham County officials’ lack of vision when it comes to the county’s future.  At a time when people in ever-increasing numbers are seeking out locally grown foods and a slower pace of life – attributes which still abound in Oldham County – our leadership is focused on stale planning models that are out of sync with current trends.

  • May is a month filled with occasions to display respect, duty, reverence and honor.

    National Day of Prayer is May 6; Armed Forces Day is May 15; Mother’s Day is May 8; the primary election is May 18 and Memorial Day is May 31.
