  • Girls Basketball: Slow start dooms Lady Mustangs

    GOSHEN – North Oldham’s players are getting used to a new way of doing things, coach Dan Pfaff said.

    From different warmups to new offensive and defensive systems, the Lady Mustangs are trying to change their culture and climb out of the District 29 cellar.

    But combine first-game jitters with a hot-shooting opponent and North Oldham dug too deep a hole Wednesday night.

    North Bullitt raced out to a 30-4 lead early in the second quarter and went on to win 71-41 in the season opener for both teams.

  • A Santa miracle for the Christmas season

    Always believe in miracles. That is what all of us need to remember as we enter into another Christmas season. There is plenty of cynicism and skepticism to go around, but I say focus on the miracle that God became human in Jesus Christ and that miracle can give us hope no matter what situation we find ourselves in. I found an old story from Guidepost Magazine’s book Christmas Miracles, c. 2008. The story is edited, for this article, but the full version can be found on the internet. It always brings a tear of joy to my eyes.

  • High school dance becomes ALS fundraiser

    The homecoming dance was once a time of dressing to the nines and dancing until midnight for the students of South Oldham High School until it was threatened to be canceled last year due to the lack of participation of the sponsor, the SOHS dance team.

    Disappointed that they could not be involved in the planning of the annual dance in their senior year, former dance team member Nicole Childress and her friends, Emily Sage and Sara McOmber, came up with a solution.
