  • Big crowds greet White Castle mobile

    Last Thursday Oldham County residents proved that White Castle was what they craved.

    A visit by the White Castle Crave Mobile led to a steady lunchtime crowd in La Grange last week, as the truck set up shop in the Kroger parking lot.

    Many people lined up well before the 11 a.m. start time for the food truck, which had a steady line of at least 50 people waiting to order during lunch hours.

  • School board to redraw member lines

    Fresh off redrawing school attendance boundaries, the members of the Oldham County Board of Education are redrawing their lines too.

    The member boundary lines are redrawn every 10 years and the new lines should help balance out inequities in the current boundaries, according to the board.

    The biggest adjustment will come from a policy change that states prison populations will no longer be counted, like they were in the previous redrawing of member lines. The board has not yet taken action on the new map, but brought it up for discussion at its December meeting.
