  • YMCA buys indoor arena, land

    After leasing a nearby indoor arena for the last 10 years, the Oldham County YMCA in Buckner has purchased the building and the property it sits on for $1.3 million.

    Peggy Kilgore, the executive director of the Oldham County YMCA, said it just made sense to purchase a building next to its main facility that is heavily used for YMCA programs anyway.

    And with the building needing some renovations, it made sense to own the facility before making those renovations, she said.

  • Hope Health Clinic expands its services in La Grange

     

    When Hope Health Clinic opened its doors in La Grange in 2011, the affordable clinic was home to six local physicians and a nurse practitioner. Today, the clinic has a team of ten physicians and nurses caring for the needs of those who are indigent, without insurance or underinsured.

    New to the clinic is the cutting edge service of gene testing. This tests patients’ genes to find the most effective medicine for their illness.

  • Local deli expanding Crestwood business into frozen treats

     

    Finding a place to get dessert will now be just steps away at one Crestwood eatery.

    Red Pepper owner Joe Heitz recently opened up the Red Peppermint, a frozen yogurt bar, next door to his Crestwood location. And while the two are branded differently, there’s nothing separating the inside of the restaurants, save different designs and menu options.

    At a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the Red Peppermint, Heitz said the decision to open the yogurt bar was because his family wanted to “get crazy” again.

  • Effort to allow expanded alcohol sales in Oldham County begins

    A vote to expand alcohol sales in the county is forthcoming, after the Oldham County Chamber and Economic Development confirmed to county leaders they would spearhead the effort.

    Chamber Executive Director Deana Epperly Karem said her organization is targeting a March 2015 special election for county voters to decide whether to allow package alcohol sales throughout the county. An educational campaign will take place from August until October, before a petition drive to get the initiative on the ballot starts in November.
