  • Pewee ready for cell tower fight

    The City of Pewee Valley is gearing up for a fight against a familiar opponent.

    At their monthly meeting Monday night, council members learned of a plan to construct a cellular tower behind the Salem Assembly of God, a church at 209 La Grange Road.  Although no formal application has been filed with planning and zoning for the construction of the cell tower, the intent to do so has been declared. It is the same scenario at the same location council members successfully opposed 12 years ago.

  • Smells good enough to eat

    While my best friend was designing her “signature scent” in a fancy parfumerie in Covent Garden, I was next door at the cookie shop, deciding between Double Chocolate Chunk and Raspberry Macadamia.  Actually, I knew I would choose Double Chocolate Chunk, but I took my time because designing a signature scent takes forever. 

    Finally, she emerged smelling nearly as delicious as the cookie I was wolfing down.  Holding up a small vial, she explained, “They store the formula, so, I can purchase more in the future!” 

  • OC's Nuernberger ready for life as Buckeye kicker

    Pressure comes as part of the job when you’re a football kicker.

       And for Oldham County’s Sean Nuernberger, there was plenty of pressure in just securing the job he hopes is his for the next four years.

       This summer Nuernberger was one of several highly touted high schoolers from across the nation to travel to Columbus, Ohio for what amounted to an open tryout to become Ohio State’s next kicker.

  • Freedom of speech can be offensive

    There is a reason that freedom of speech is the first amendment to the United States Constitution.  It is because we are really the only country that has such unfettered freedom. 

    As is so frequently and eloquently pointed out by my friend Saddique Malik in various articles in the  Courier Journal concerning Muslim fundamentalism – “free debate is a death-knell for fundamentalism.” … “it’s the freedom, stupid”

  • We are commanded to be joyful

    A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    “It can’t buy laughter and it can’t buy love” he told them. Driving his point home he said, “What would you do if I offered you $1,000 not to love your mother and father?”

    Stunned silence ensued. Finally a small voice queried, “How much would you give me not to love my big sister?”

    Last week we looked at the importance of laughter and joy in life.  Can we make these a part of a “living will?” 

  • Getting back on the horse: Cancer doesn’t stop rider

    Susan Corwin learned how to be brave from riding a horse.

    Her first horse, Brandy, was a “horrible appaloosa” that was more successful throwing Susan off his back than keeping her in the saddle. The day he broke her arm, Susan said, was a watershed moment.

    “I looked up at that horse and knew that I was either going to decide to get back on him or never ride again,” Corwin said.

    She’s been riding ever since.

  • Tax bills mailed

    2013 Property Tax Bills have been mailed and are due to be paid by December 31, 2013 before incurring any penalties.  

    The Office of the Oldham County Attorney is charged with the collection of delinquent tax bills which become delinquent if not paid after April 15, 2014.

    This is a reminder to those who may have purchased or received real estate in the year 2013 in Oldham County.  At the closing, if you purchased the property, the taxes were prorated between you and the seller leaving you with the responsibility to pay the tax bill for 2013.
