  • Heading to the Kentucky State Fair

    An error during the Little Miss and Mister Oldham County Fair pageant resulted in the wrong name being called as winner of the Little Miss crown. Brooke Davis, left, with Little Mister Will Alecia will represent Oldham County this month at the Kentucky State Fair. Davis was the actual winner, but Alex McGill’s name was called by mistake.

  • Are you afraid of ghosts?

    La Grange may be dead at night — but not in the way you think. There’s plenty of activity, according to Spirits of La Grange Ghost Tour guides.

    Footsteps overhead, knocking on walls, even the occasional touch — attendees and guides report a range of unexplained activities during tours.

    It’s the 10th year for the tour, which includes about eight different stops, said Barbara Manley Edds, who helped launch them.

  • Crestwood Festival is Sept. 8

    A full day of family-friendly entertainment is planned Sept. 8 for the Crestwood Festival.

  • Been there, and fighting it: Veteran's Recognition event will focus on PTSD

    Many of America’s heroes are coming home and fighting a silent battle of their own — a battle many won’t acknowledge and can go undiagnosed and untreated for years.

    Post-tramautic stress — commonly known as PTSD — is being diagnosed in soldiers at increasingly higher rates. Many organizations are opting to drop “disorder” from the title to lessen the stigma associated with mental illness.

    It is likely not that more soldiers are experiencing PTS, but that the U.S. military has started paying more attention to it.
