  • Hillcrest triathlon continues to grow

    GOSHEN – While the big kids will race past their neighborhood a week after, the triathletes of the Hillcrest subdivision will get an earlier start this Saturday.

    As of noon Monday, 106 young athletes ranging from ages 4 to 15 have signed up for the second-annual Hillcrest subdivision youth triathlon.

    The race is the brainchild of Hillcrest resident Tom Schiller who thought it could serve several functions from getting families to exercise together to giving kids a chance to learn and grow.

  • Harrods Creek bridge reopens

    After two years of construction, injunctions and delays, Harrods Creek bridge reopened Monday afternoon, allowing north Oldham residents a more direct route to downtown Louisville via River Road. The former one-lane bridge closed, some say rather unexpectedly, on Nov. 26, 2008, after Louisville engineers determined guardrails were not sturdy enough.

    “I was out of town for Thanksgiving that year, and I remember coming home to see ‘bridge closed signs.’ It came out of nowhere,” said Todd Eberle, mayor of Prospect.

  • Two weddings and a felony charge

    An Indiana man vowed one Wednesday to love and honor his wife until death parted them.

    The following Wednesday, he made the same vow – to a different woman.

    James E. House, 53, of Sellersburg, Ind. is charged with bigamy after he allegedly married two women just seven days apart.

    An Oldham grand jury recently handed up House’s indictment.

    Court records show House married Christina Settle, a machinist, on April 9, 2008, in Louisville.

    The following week, he married Lisa Ross, a nurse, in La Grange.

  • Louisville man indicted for raping girl, 8

    An Oldham County grand jury recently indicted a 33-year old man on charges of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse of an 8-year-old girl.

    Gerrick Oliver of Louisville is accused of raping the girl at her home on several occasions during 2008.

    The victim told police Oliver, a relative, would drag her to a bedroom by her hair when they were alone in the house. The girl told police Oliver forced her to perform sexual acts and beat her with a belt as he raped her.

  • BRAIDED & SHACKLED

    Prosecutors say they’ve collected a two-volume notebook binder —with more than 700 pages of information — against a Corbin woman indicted for murdering her newborn in a La Grange prison bathroom March 7.

    Ashley Nicole Cox, 20, appeared before Judge Karen Conrad in Oldham Circuit Court July 1.

    Cox wore braided pigtails and shackles on her wrists and ankles. She erupted in tears as she entered the courtroom, but remained silent during her 15-minute appearance. She shielded her face from media attention.

  • Volunteer work inspires Brown to compete

    LA GRANGE – After watching the Ironman athletes from a volunteer’s view last year, Jimmy Brown made the decision he would step off the sideline and on the road to competing himself.

    “I just got inspired watching them last year,” Brown said. “I thought it would be something I could really challenge myself with and I have wanted to set some big goals for myself at a young age.”

    Brown, 24, began training for the Aug. 29 Louisville Ironman competition last October.

  • Officials close Lake Louisvilla streets that only existed on paper

    Oldham officials voted July 6 to pass a resolution closing roads that had never been built in the Lake Louisvilla subdivision in Pewee Valley.

    The roads are listed on the original plat for the subdivision and though they are on the county’s list to maintain, they’ve never been developed, Magistrate Bob Deibel said.

    “These aren’t roads, they have never been built as roads,” Deibel said. “They’re just grass right now.”

  • Teams coping heat wave

    The recent heat wave is starting to play a role in how the local high school and middle school teams are preparing for their fall seasons.

    Across the county most teams have been able to conduct preseason practice, however, with temperatures expected to top 100 degrees later this week, postponements and cancellations are likely.

    “So far it’s been good,” Oldham County High School football coach Matt Brown said. “We have had no issues, knock on wood. It’s been hot, very hot, but we try to schedule things as early or as late as possible.”
