    Pageantry and reality television have gone hand-in-hand in the last decade with hit shows like “Pageant Place,” “Toddlers and Tiaras” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

    One such star in the pageant and reality worlds moved from TV to real life with an appearance in La Grange this weekend.

    Johnathan Kayne, a contestant on Project Runway and successful pageant dress designer, was the guest of honor at last weekend’s pageant workshop hosted by Posh Formal Wear.

  • Perhaps you have seen it in a store or someone emailed it to you. I have a copy of the HillBilly Ten Commandments. We can all appreciate the simplicity they reveal. There are a number of versions, but mine go like this: 1) Just one God. 2) Put nothin’ before God. 3) Watch yer mouth. 4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin’. 5) Honor yer Ma and Pa. 6) No killin’. 7) No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal. 8) Don’t take what ain’t yers. 9) No tellin’ tales and gossipin’. 10) Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff.


    October may be Breast Cancer Awareness month, but for a group of Oldham County ladies who like to crochet and knit, they are giving back to those affected every day of the year.

    Vicki Kinser, owner of La Grange’s Friends and Fiber Shop, recently introduced the knitting and crocheting groups to Knitted Knockers, a program that has volunteers making prosthetic breasts for free to mastectomy patients.

    “As soon as I heard about this program, I thought this was a really good fit for the ladies at the shop,” Kinser said.

  • All Hallows’ Eve is a night when ghosts, ghouls and goblins come out to play, but one La Grange group believes the supernatural is around us every day.

    The Spirits of La Grange Ghost Tour, presented by Discover Downtown La Grange, educated many people this season about some of the city’s most historical and haunted sites, according to coordinator Barbara Manley.

    “The tours are very authentic because of the history being told,” Manley said.

    The first stop on the tour is Rails, located on East Main Street.

  • What did one ghost say to the other ghost? Answer: Do you believe in people? People in our country wonder if there are really ghosts. In most of the rest of the world, where the cultures are older by hundreds, even thousands of years, most people are certain there are ghosts. However, popular wisdom is a poor source of authority. There are many things that a majority of people believe in that time and/or science have proven wrong. The wisdom of the scriptures has proven to be reliable, so that is where we should turn for an answer.

  • Comic Jim Gaffigan shares some humorous thoughts about Halloween. He says, “My favorite holiday is Halloween, and not because women use the opportunity to dress like prostitutes… As a kid Halloween was amazing. You dress like a super hero, bang on your neighbor’s door and they give you some candy. If I do that today then my neighbor wants me arrested.”

  • Students from all middle and high schools across the county came together Wednesday night for Fields of Faith, a student-led program at which students share personal testimonies of faith and challenge each other to lead Christ-centered lives. Speakers included students from North, South and Oldham County high schools, as well as guest speaker Aaron Nance, a former Seneca High School standout athlete and University of Louisville football player.

  • For Virginia Broyles, farming was more than a way of life.

    The 102-year-old spent many years working her farm in Brownsboro, before spending the last nine years at Friendship Health and Rehab in Pewee Valley.

    But thanks to a partnership between Friendship and Opal’s Dream, Broyles was once again transported back to the farm on Saturday morning with the help of the Oldham County Historical Society’s Antique Iron Club.

  • For one La Grange family, a nearly three-year dream to visit Mickey Mouse is coming true.

    Hayli Nobles, 4, is one of many children granted Make-a-Wish dreams every year. Since being diagnosed with actute myleoid leukemia in 2010, her dream has been to see the princesses at Disney World.

    On Monday, Hayli’s wish was granted, as a limo pulled up to the family’s La Grange residence to take them to the airport for a trip to Orlando.
