  • A Mustang pool

    LOUISVILLE — In the final event that would decide the county’s boys’ swimming championship, North Oldham High School sophomore Mark Scherer saw the task ahead of him.

  • Bike series defines ‘extreme’

    For two laps, Nick Dietrich of Louisville avoided icy bridges, maneuvered his mountain bike over tree roots and squeezed between tree trunks to hang with Louisville’s Joe Driver.

    Driver won the La Grange Urban Short Track Series’ category three event the previous three races, but found himself passed by Dietrich on the third lap.

    In the fifth leg of the eight-race mountain bike series Jan. 21, racers battled frigid temperatures below 30 degrees and wind gusts as they raced from Washington Street around Mundo and Wilborn parks in La Grange.

  • I'd pay to save time and money on groceries

    Grocery shopping is my personal form of torture.

    I'll gladly dash into Thornton's for milk. And I'm overjoyed to make a Target run. However, when it comes to "we need eggs, trash bags, yogurt, bananas, pancake mix" and so on, I feel like the luckiest wife on the planet that my husband is willing to go after work on weekdays with a curious almost-2-year-old in tow.

  • Grand Stamm: A crock of LIT

    Maybe it’s determined by strength of schedule or maybe the margin of victory is the biggest factor.

    Either way, no one seems to know just how The Courier-Journal comes up with the Litkenhous Ratings that rank Kentucky high school basketball teams. Yet the ratings could be used to determine the top seed in the 29th district basketball tournament next month.

  • Gnadinger and Rusch come through

    CRESTWOOD – Late in the 182-pound wrestling finals Saturday at the South Oldham Dragon Invitational, Oldham County High School senior Zac Gnadinger broke through a deadlocked match.

    Thanks to a late grapple, Gnadinger  pulled off a big upset over St. Xavier’s Will Tompkins 3-1. Tompkins is ranked No. 2 in the state in the weight class by KentuckyWrestling.com.

  • Sassy and Shack fall short

    During 2011, they left a number of horses in the dirt.

    But even though thoroughbreds Shackleford and Sassy Image picked up a number of wins, neither could pull off a win as the best horse in their classes.

    Shackleford, a 3-year-old colt and Sassy Image, a 4-year-old filly, fell short for the 2011 Eclipse Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    The horses are trained in Goshen by Dale Romans and both were finalists for this year's awards.

  • SOHS spins its wheels in LIT loss

    LOUISVILLE — It was like South Oldham had its wheels stuck in the mud.

                The Lady Dragons put their foot on the gas and would move a little bit, then they’d shift to reverse and try again, but get advance the same amount out of the rut.

  • Health officials say birds not an immediate illness concern

    Oldham County health officials say there is little risk of disease from the flocks of birds gaining national attention this week.

    Chad Lynch, public information officer for the Oldham County Health Department, said the department doesn't see the birds as a major health concern at this time.

    Histoplasmosis, the most common form of bird-related disease, only spreads in dry conditions.

    The largest concentration of birds are in La Grange off Jericho Road, where they are feeding on nearby cornfields.
