  • Starry Night

    Inclement weather didn’t stop a full house from being present at the Mellwood Arts Center for Dancing with the Prospect Stars on Saturday. Kentucky State Sen. Ernie Harris took home the Mirror Ball Trophy and raised over $25,000 for Apple Patch. Jennifer Willis, dancing for USA Cares, was selected as People’s Choice and David Thurmond, dancing for Family Scholar House, was awarded the Judges’ Best Dancer trophy. Above, Thurmond, who danced for Family Scholar House, is introduced.

  • Spring Break still safe despite wintry week

    It wasn’t planned, but students of Oldham County Schools were the recipients of a winter break last week as snow and below-zero temperatures rocked the region.

    But those five days off will push an already delayed school calendar even further into June, OCS Communications Director Tracy Green said.

    OCS’ last day is now scheduled to be June 10, with all five days tacked on to the end of the current calendar. The original last day was June 3, thanks to a delayed start to the year due to renovations at Oldham County Middle School.

  • Traffic system being developed

    The Oldham County Fiscal Court is in the process of potentially approving a system to alert local drivers to interstate backups and delays.

    The idea, first brought up by County Judge-Executive David Voegele months ago, would provide local drivers the decision to divert to other local roads if a wreck delays or shuts down Interstate 71.

    The problem is that no such system currently exists… yet.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Colonels end season with 55-32 loss in regional tournament

     Oldham County girl’s basketball coach Jace Bryant hoped his team’s underdog mentality would give them the push they needed to put up a fight to Simon Kenton in the first round of the Region 8 Tournament. 

    But Simon Kenton took care of the underdog early and cruised to a 55-32 win over the Lady Colonels at Carroll County High School. The Lady Pioneers will play Shelby County in the 8th Region semifinals.

  • BOYS: Oldham smokes Trimble, heads to district final

    It took longer than expected, but Oldham County has its desired rematch with North Oldham in the district tournament finals.

     

    The Colonels (24-4) easily dispatched Trimble County (16-10) 77-31 in the first round of district play Wednesday night.

     

    Its senior leaders, Hayden Hawes and Connor Hicks, paced Oldham County in the first quarter en route to a 24-12 lead. But once Trimble packed packing in the middle and defending on the wings, the rest of Colonels took over and never looked back, leading by 25 at half.

     

  • GIRLS: Seniors send Oldham County to district finals

    One of the keys to any postseason run is having experienced players go above and beyond their play in the regular season.

     

    Which is why the Lady Colonels are heading to the district finals and South Oldham is heading home after a 63-45 defeat in the first round of the postseason Wednesday night.

     

    The Lady Colonels (13-15) relied heavily on seniors Jayla Davis, Kasey Wernert and Abigail Stewart, who scored 47 points combined for Oldham County.
