  • The Ballardsville Fire Department is set to build a second station in southern Oldham County after getting approval from the Oldham County Planning and Zoning Commission.

    The commission unanimously approved the second station, which will be built at 2414 W. Highway 22 in Crestwood. It will also have a public entrance to the station from Montford Circle.

  • What started as an item on his bucket list turned into a world record for Crestwood resident Jason McNabb.

    “When I was a kid, I used to read about Guinness World Records in the Scholastic Reader magazine at school,” McNabb said. “I was always amazed at the feats people accomplished.

    “There’s a fine line between amazing and crazy, I guess.”

  • Over the last month I have seen and heard more Christmas commercials than ever and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving.

     Thanksgiving has become the forgotten holiday which is sadly all too common in America.  For a land blessed with such an amazing bounty we sure do have a lot of whining, moaning and complaining about the lack of stuff and that is just under my own roof.  Have you decided to give a living will of thankfulness to your family and friends?  What keeps you from being more thankful?

  • The Teddy Bear Tree is here!

    This holiday season the History Center is again partnering with the Tri-County Community Action Council to help brighten Christmas for children in the tri-county area.  

    Stop by during our regular business hours to choose a child to purchase gifts for this Christmas.  

    You may choose one child or an entire family, the choice is yours.  

    Gifts are due back to the Oldham County History Center Tuesday, Dec. 10.  

    If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 222-0826.

  • My grandparents lived on a farm in Ft. Wayne, Ind. When they were living, we would gather there every Thanksgiving with my family, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. They owned a turkey farm so it was always an incredibly busy time of the year.

    However, when it came time to sit down at their old wooden table, we would give thanks for the blessings of the year and enjoy a meal together. As the years went by, my grandparents passed away and the table and traditions were brought to Indianapolis to my mom’s house.

  • We asked our Facebook friends to complete this sentence, "I am thankful for..." Here are a few of their replies:

    Christine Hockersmith...that after almost six years I have found my children and they are home with me! It’s been an amazing year!

    Melissa Fink...my kids, my husband and the rest of my family, thankful he has a good job, we have a roof over our heads and food in our bellies.

    Choral voices filled Gallery 104 in La Grange last Thursday, members of the Oldham County Singers sang a collection of art themed songs to mark their entry into the Arts Association of Oldham County. The group is the first performing arts member to join the association.

  • In the 1950s, Edward R. Murrow’s radio program “This I Believe” gave voice to the core values and treasured beliefs of Americans around the country. Sixty years later, the popular update of the series, which has been featured on NPR and now continues on Bob Edwards Weekend on satellite and public radio, explores the beliefs that people hold dear today.

  • The South Oldham Rotary Club had the pleasure of honoring the October Students of the Month at their Nov. 8 meeting.
