  • Girls Basketball: Lady Dragons hand Eastern second loss

    CRESTWOOD – It took each of South’s Oldham’s “Big Three” to beat an Eastern team that came into Saturday with just one loss.

    Erin Wilson, Sydney Jones and Abbey Van Zant, all seniors, combined for 58 points as the Lady Dragons notched a 76-74 win against the Eagles on Saturday afternoon.

    Eastern (12-2) was just outside the top 20 in this week’s Litkenhous ratings. The Eagles, with a 94.5 rating, became the highest-rated team South (9-7) has knocked off in coach Jessica Conner’s first year in Crestwood.

  • Boys Basketball: Mustangs out-play Colonels in district upset

    GOSHEN – According to both its coach and star player, North Oldham had yet to play a full game this season heading into its showdown Friday night against then-No. 11 Oldham County.

    “We always said if we put four quarters together we can beat anybody and we’ll be tough to beat,” Mustang senior guard Jon Jon Henry said.

    “We’ll usually have one, maybe two (good quarters) per game,” North coach Rob Burton said. “But we’ve never been able to put four quarters together defensively or offensively.”

    Staring at a 0-3 District 29 record, OC finally scored some points Friday and picked up a district win.

    Senior center Abigail Stewart led the way with 18 points as the Lady Colonels won 59-32 at North Oldham.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Mustangs win at Lady Cats

    NEW CASTLE – Megan Payton’s 17-point outburst in the second half wasn’t enough to help the Henry County Lady Cats come back from a 16-point second half deficit against North Oldham Thursday in a 48-36 Lady Mustang win.

    The host Lady Cats struggled offensively in the first half and found themselves down 22-11 at halftime. Henry managed just three points in the first quarter to the Lady Mustangs’ 11 points.

    The Lady Cats had trouble with the Lady Mustangs’ full-court pressure and their inside height throughout the first half.

    SHELBYVILLE – Facing a short-handed South Oldham club, the Collins took care of business early to roll to a 70-51 win over the Dragons Tuesday.

  • A call for Biblical repentance

    A man sent a check to the government for back taxes with a note attached that said, “I felt so guilty for cheating on my taxes I had to send you this check. If I don’t feel any better, I’ll send you the rest.”

  • Oldham County’s ‘best’ is a very deep selection

    It’s been a few years since The Oldham Era sponsored a readers’ choice awards contest and we weren’t sure how it would go over, but our readers did not disappoint.

    We printed a ballot in several issues of the Era and the Market and provided an online survey for readers to cast their votes. More than 600 voters told us who they thought represented the best Oldham County had to offer in the categories of restaurants, shopping, services, public places and events, outstanding individuals and more.

  • Senate starting quickly

    “Creating Kentucky jobs and strengthening Kentucky families” -- this is how our caucus defined the overall goals of the Senate this session, and I’m proud to report that four of our priority bills to accomplish those objectives passed the Senate in our first week, and are now on the way to the House.

    As the Senate has done in previous sessions under the direction of Senate President Robert Stivers, members of leadership were elected prior to the start of session so when the 2015 General Assembly convened, we were able to get straight to business.

  • Considering the heavens

    Have you ever wondered why the world is so beautiful, so impressive, so big? Nobody knows how big the heavens are with millions, maybe billions, of stars. Why is it that every morning the glory of a sunrise comes over the earth and every evening the quiet beauty of a sunset? It could have been arranged so the day would come and go in some less impressive manner.
