  • Showing thanks to employees

    As a student, I typically despised collaborative projects. Obsessed with getting good grades, I would inevitably end up doing most of the work myself because no one else in the group approached it with the same level of intensity that I did.

    I began each collaboration with high hopes, helping to divy up all the workload to group members and establishing deadlines for sections of the project. Invariably, deadlines weren’t met, work was shoddy and my streak of straight A’s was in jeopardy.

  • South Oldham football preview: South brings back big, talented roster

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham was impressive across the field in its scrimmage against Shelby County Friday night at Dragon Stadium.

  • North Oldham football preview: Mustangs set lofty goals for 2014

    GOSHEN – North Oldham players and coaches are keeping no secrets about their goals for this season.

    The Mustangs think they have a team that can overcome defending state champion Collins in their district and then make a deep playoff run.

  • Oldham County football preview: Harding to lead Shatzer’s first OC team

    BUCKNER – First-year Oldham County coach Mike Shatzer’s quarterback philosophy is that if you have two, you don’t have any.

    Last year OC rotated three and the Colonels went 2-9.

    This year Shatzer hopes sticking to one signal-caller will lead to better play at that position and a better record.

    The quarterback who got the nod from his new coach is senior James Harding.

    “We’ve hung our hat on James and we’re going to ride him and hopefully it pans out,” Shatzer said.

  • Boys soccer: Dragons drop opener
