    A North Oldham High School art assignment was taken down after inspiring thousands of post-shares on Facebook and controversial discussions of race, police relations and assignment appropriateness.
    But the painting, which simultaneously depicted one student’s opinion of racial injustice today and in the 1930s, was not taken down because of the attention, both negative and positive it received – the art was removed because the teaching unit was over, said Tracy Green, director of communications and development for Oldham County Schools.

  • Semi struck by train in Crestwood

     A train collided with a tractor-trailer trapped on Railroad Avenue about 3:50 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23. 

    No injuries were suffered in the crash, which resulted in canned soups spilling onto the railway. The semi was headed to Nashville, Tenn., said Oldham County Police Sgt. Neil Johnson. 

    The short and steep avenue is commonly problematic for large trucks, which are not legally allowed to attempt the crossing.
