  •  Lou DeVincentis was born July 26, 1939 in McKeesport, Pa., which is a suburb of Pittsburgh. His parents were Alfred DeVincentis  and Josephine Park DeVincentis. His grandparents came over from Italy and settled in western Pennsylvania. The following is his oral history, as recorded and transcribed by Oldham County History Center Director Nancy Theiss. Photos submitted by DeVincentis. Portrait by Marian Klein Kohler.

  •  Mr. and Mrs. Kipley McNally of Louisville announce the engagement of their daughter, Kala J. McNally to Brandon M. Gathof, son of  Mr. and Mrs. Mike Gathof of La Grange.

  •  A classroom writing assignment proved to be an exercise in building a better mother-daughter relationship when 11-year-old Charity Stoltz penned a persuasive letter to her mother last fall.

  •  Mother’s Day was a special time for me when I was a child. From the time I first started to school, I remember using my hands to make things for people. I liked to make cards with a special meaning. Being from a large family of seven brothers and sisters, I often found it hard to recognize the individuality that I possessed. I still remember thinking about what I would write on each card. The message usually had something to do with thankfulness — either for something my mom did for me that no one else could do, or just thankfulness for the mom I had.  

  •  My daughter asked me to write a little something for The Oldham Era this week in honor of Mother’s Day. My daughter is Laura Hagan, one of the reporters for this paper.  I think she is very good at what she does , of course. That being said, please don’t judge me on what I am about to write.

  •  What could one say about a woman who has accomplished so much in a lifetime?  How could one describe her?  Mother, daughter, sister, friend, confidant and teacher – the list is endless.  I have lots of opportunities to look up to my mom.  She doesn’t consider herself a superwoman, but I do.  She does more in one day than most of us do in week.

  • As hunting gains popularity nationwide, Kenny Parsons wants to make sure newcomers to the sport are well educated.

    Parsons, owner of Hide ’N’ Hook on U.S. 42 West, just on this side of the Trimble border with Henry and Oldham counties, is putting his years of experience on film in the form of a new TV show, “Just Passin’ Thru.”

    Think of him as the “Tim Taylor” for hunting enthusiasts – only far less accident-prone than the fictional “Home Improvement” cable TV host.

  • Merchants in downtown La Grange will host a progressive Blue Hydrangea tea party to benefit Ovarian Awareness of Kentucky from 1 to 5 p.m. April 18. The event is in its third year. In 2009, 470 people attended raised more than $5,000.

    Baptist Hospital Northeast is the signature sponsor, and the Masonic Lodge No. 47 F&AM also offered sponsorship.

    The event is organized by Lisa Adams in memory of the late Cindy Adams, a long-time La Grange merchant who founded the event and died in 2009 from ovarian cancer.
