  • KHSAA boys soccer semifinals: South, Scott to square off

    One of South Oldham’s team mottos is “to be proud, but not satisfied.”

    That’s how the Dragons said they were approaching preparations for a KHSAA state semifinal match against Scott. Kickoff is 6 p.m. Thursday at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium in Lexington.

    “We’ve been talking since freshman year about how a state championship was our goal and that this year was our year,” senior midfielder Nathan Roshelli said. “We’re not going to be happy unless we win state. Senior year, we want to go out on top.”

  • Feeley easily re-elected as Family Court judge

    It most certainly felt like déjà vu when Timothy E. Feeley defeated Michael Pate for the position of Circuit Judge in the 12th Judicial Circuit Tuesday night.

    Feeley also defeated Pate, a long-time family law attorney, in 2006.

    “I want to thank the voters for their confidence in me once again,” Feeley told the Era.

    Feeley has been Family Court Judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble Counties since 2005. He said he has seen over 15,000 cases in his nine and a half years as judge.

  • Davenport elected La Grange Mayor

    La Grange will have its third mayor in as many terms come January, but a familiar face will occupy the office.

    Longtime councilman Joe Davenport defeated Brian Oerther, 57 to 42 percent, to take the helm of Oldham County’s largest city, with 84 percent of the city turning out to vote in the race.

    The race was a referendum on several recent city council votes, including the occupational tax, which Oerther opposed. But voters decided to stick with Davenport over Oerther, who pegged himself as “outside the box” when it came to ideas for the city.

  • KHSAA boys soccer quarterfinals: South breaks through to semis for first time

    LEXINGTON – South Oldham is playing deeper into the postseason than ever before thanks to a group of veterans who’ve been playing together for years and a newcomer who didn’t join the team until this season.

  • KHSAA girls soccer quarterfinals: Rowland gets record, South gets to semifinals

    LEXINGTON – Before Saturday, two South Oldham girls soccer milestones had been in place for nearly 15 years.

    Kristal Menard’s 111 goals were the most in school history. And South’s 2001 state championship was the last time the Lady Dragons had advanced past the state quarterfinals.

    Both of those statements are now history.
