Oldham County is a special place to me.
I first came to this county in the summer of 2011 as a 20-year old college kid. My only day-to-day journalism experience to that point had been a spring on the Western Kentucky baseball beat for my college paper.
As a summer intern I was going to get my first taste of sports reporting at a professional newspaper.
Then two weeks before I started Mickey Patterson, Era sports editor since sometime during the Reagan Administration, stepped down.
