  • WOOF there it is

     

    The WOOFery has spent nearly three years on Main Street in La Grange, but recently it became so popular it outgrew its space.

    When owner Tanya Turner added the grooming salon to her business in 2013, it quickly became apparent that parking was a serious issue for her clients — both two-legged and four-legged.

    “My heart was attached to Main Street, so it took me about eight months to find the exact, right location that would suit our needs, as well as the needs and comfort of our customers,” Turner said.

  • Fallen, not forgotten

    More than 200 people weathered a torrential downpour and high winds to pay respects to a fallen Marine that few, if any, of them knew.

    On Sunday, Captain Adam Satterfield, a Crestwood native, was laid to rest after dying in a military training exercise in California. The Marine was a 2007 graduate of South Oldham High School, where he played on the football team.

  • Bourbon boom comes to Main

     

    Many communities have seen a spike in the craft beer market over the last few years and now La Grange will be part of the Beer Lovers Club with a new business coming to its historic district.

    Tom and Linda Clemons have been in the alcohol industry for many decades and now have expanded their repertoire with the Main Street Bourbon and Ale House opening later this month in La Grange.

  • Massie talks cooking and CAD during OCS visit

    It’s not unusual for a congressman to visit a school in his district, but very few have the expertise Congressman Thomas Massie brought during his tour of the Arvin Education Center Friday.

    Massie, who started his career as an engineer after graduating from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, spent an hour discussing Congress, economics, engineering and more with the students participating in the center’s Engineering Academy.

  • After two years, Dollar Tree opens

    With snow flurries fluttering around her, temperatures around freezing and 10 minutes left to go, La Grange resident Patricia Stark was beyond excited.

    “This is Christmas to me, it’s like Christmas morning,” Stark said.

    The cause of Stark’s excitement was the grand opening of a Dollar Tree in the Oldham Plaza complex, an opening that was delayed two years due to problems with the complex’s landlord, Icon-Oldham Development, an offshoot of Icon Properties in Louisville.

  • Boys Basketball: Henry drives NO to county win

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham played Jon Jon Henry man-to-man on Tuesday night and Henry made the Dragons pay.

    The North Oldham senior guard scored 34 points and grabbed 15 rebounds as the Mustangs beat their rivals 72-56.

    Henry scored 20 of his points in the first half to help North (15-10, 3-0 District 29) keep up with a South team that came out hot offensively.

    He added 14 in the second as the Mustangs pulled away.

  • Stephens: End of my 'Era'

    I promise I wasn’t trying to give myself a nickname.

    I sat in my new office at The Oldham Era in August of 2013, thinking of possible usernames for a Twitter account I’d use on the job.

    Taking into account Twitter’s 140-character confines, I wanted to create a handle with the fewest possible characters.

    My solution was to take the paper’s name and combine it with my first name. “EraBrad” was born.

  • Girls Basketball: South loss clears district picture

    CRESTWOOD – For the first time since the current District 29 was created in 2006, one district team not named Oldham County or South Oldham will claim a spot in next month’s Region 8 Tournament.

    That outcome was ensured Monday night when Trimble County notched a 51-48 win at South, thus claiming the No. 1 seed in the upcoming district tournament.

    Trimble (13-8, 2-0 district) will face fourth-seed North Oldham (12-9, 0-2) in the district semifinals, no matter the outcome of the team’s regular season meeting Friday night in Goshen.

  • South swims strong at Jefferson Co. Invitational

    South Oldham’s boys and girls swim teams both put on strong showings at the 2015 Jefferson County Invitational on Saturday at the University of Louisville.

    The Dragons finished second in the boys event to St. Xavier, while the girls finished second to Sacred Heart.

    South (236 points) was the clear No. 2 in the eight-school boys’ event, with Kentucky Country Day (146) finishing third. St. X totaled 421 points.

  • Boys Basketball: South falls at home to Anderson

    CRESTWOOD – Anderson County knew that getting a win at South Oldham is about like navigating Louisville's Watterson Expressway at rush hour. It can be done, but it's never easy.

    The Bearcats shot nearly 52 percent and got production from multiple sources, but did not seal their 68-55 win until the final three minutes Friday night. It was Anderson's first win at South since 1999.
