  • Oldham County football preview: Harding to lead Shatzer’s first OC team

    BUCKNER – First-year Oldham County coach Mike Shatzer’s quarterback philosophy is that if you have two, you don’t have any.

    Last year OC rotated three and the Colonels went 2-9.

    This year Shatzer hopes sticking to one signal-caller will lead to better play at that position and a better record.

    The quarterback who got the nod from his new coach is senior James Harding.

    “We’ve hung our hat on James and we’re going to ride him and hopefully it pans out,” Shatzer said.

  • Boys soccer: Dragons drop opener

    CRESTWOOD – A season South Oldham hopes will be a special one got off to a disappointing start Monday night.

    Fern Creek scored two second-half goals to beat the Dragons 2-1 at Dragon Stadium.

    Monday was a frustrating night for South, which lost despite out-shooting the Tigers 22-11. Thirteen of those Dragon shots came in the second half and none of them found the back of the net.

  • Girls golf preview: All three schools have full rosters

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham all have full varsity teams and high hopes for the 2014 season.

    The Lady Mustangs, Lady Colonels and Lady Dragons started play in recent days and will continue up through the region tournament in October.

    None of the three qualified for the state tournament last fall but North did send an individual competitor who returns this season in Katie Posto.

  • Boys golf: Mustangs finish 7th in tourney

    PROSPECT – North Oldham finished just five shots back of first-place St. Xavier in the 51st Kentucky Invitational Tournament.

    As an illustration of how competitive the play was Saturday at Nevel Meade Golf Course, that wasn’t enough for the Mustangs to crack the top five.

    North shot 303 as a team, finishing seventh in one of the state’s premier regular season high school tournaments.

  • Robinson joining PSN broadcast

    The Pegasus Sports Network guest announcer for the Iroquois at Oldham County game Friday night will be 2001 OC graduate Dallas Robinson, who most recently made local news while competing for the United States Winter Olympics team in Sochi, Russia, on the bobsled team.  

    Robinson played free safety and tight end/wide receiver on the football team while at OC and also competed in track.

  • Theodicy - evil and human free will

    The pastor goes to visit a new parishioner. The man has cancer of the liver. He openly expresses his anger at God for letting this happen to him. “Why me?” he wants to know. He never mentions that before the pastor met him he had been a heavy drinker for over 30 years. It never dawned on him that his actions could be the obvious answer to the question of his cancer.
