  • Boys Track: OC sets relay record

    Four Oldham County boys broke a record Saturday that was older than they were.

    OC runners Ben Hoffman, Josh Corral, Samuel Pyle and Seth Boaz ran the 4x400 relay in 3:24.14 Saturday at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals in Greensboro, N.C.

    That time eclipsed the school record of 3:25.38, which Colonels coach Brian Crumbo said was set at the state track meet in June 1993.

  • Earley: Human love is imperfect

    We learn about love in the family first, and that is not always a good thing. I found these notes from an anonymous mother in Austin, Texas. No information is given what kind of loving response she gave her children as they were experimenting their way through life. She simply lists these as, “Things I’ve learned from my children.”
