  • KHSAA boys soccer quarterfinals: South breaks through to semis for first time

    LEXINGTON – South Oldham is playing deeper into the postseason than ever before thanks to a group of veterans who’ve been playing together for years and a newcomer who didn’t join the team until this season.

    Junior foreign exchange student Jonas Prenn scored the Dragons’ first two goals Saturday and his teammates helped shut down Rowan County in a 4-0 South win in the KHSAA quarterfinals at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium.

  • KHSAA girls soccer quarterfinals: Rowland gets record, South gets to semifinals

    LEXINGTON – Before Saturday, two South Oldham girls soccer milestones had been in place for nearly 15 years.

    Kristal Menard’s 111 goals were the most in school history. And South’s 2001 state championship was the last time the Lady Dragons had advanced past the state quarterfinals.

    Both of those statements are now history.

  • Football: South outlasts Bullitt Central in 3 OT’s

    South Oldham needed three extra periods to beat eight-win Bullitt Central on Friday night.

    The Dragons (7-2) finally prevailed 49-42 in the third overtime when Ethan Reinert intercepted a Cameron Dukes pass to seal the win in Shepherdsville.

    Reinert, a senior, had caught a two-point conversion pass moments earlier that tied the game at 42 at the end of the second overtime period.

  • Football: Mustangs shutout streak continues

    North Oldham’s defense had a perfect October.

    The Mustangs (7-2) recorded their fourth straight shutout Friday night, beating East Jessamine (3-6-1) 41-0 in Goshen.

    North’s goose-egg victory came on the heels of shutouts on Oct. 10 against Waggener (53-0), Oct. 17 against Atherton (49-0) and last week against Collins (43-0). The Mustangs haven’t allowed a point since a 21-13 loss at Spencer County on Sept. 26.

    North’s defensive performance on Friday included a Chris Burton interception for the second straight week.

  • Football: Colonels put together complete performance in win over J’Town

    JEFFERSONTOWN – Mike Shatzer is still in the early stages of building Oldham County’s football program to his liking.

    But for one wintry night at a nearly-empty stadium, the Colonels got a glimpse of what they hope might be the future, convincingly beating an opponent and having some fun along the way.

    Quarterback James Harding threw two touchdown passes to Carson Axtell and ran for another as OC beat Jeffersontown 35-14 on the road Friday night.

  • Friday football primer: Teams set to finish regular seasons

    It’s tune-up week for the county’s three football programs.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham will all play their regular season finales Friday before beginning the state playoffs on Nov. 7.

    For OC and South, Friday is a chance to fine-tune things and go into the playoffs with some momentum.

    North will have that objective Friday too, but can also improve its playoff seeding with a win and a little help from a school in a neighboring county.

  • Region 8 volleyball: North sweeps OC, wins title

    CARROLLTON – North Oldham completed a three-set and four-match sweeps Thursday night against its county rival.

    The Lady Mustangs beat the Lady Colonels in straight sets at Carroll County for the Region 8 championship, defeating OC for the fourth time in four tries this season.

    No. 12 North (26-3) also beat No. 8 OC (34-6) during a regular season meeting in Buckner, a title game of a tournament in Louisville and in the District 29 championship match last week in Buckner.

  • Ghosts,mediums and the occult

    What did one ghost say to the other ghost? Answer: Do you believe in people? People in our country wonder if there are really ghosts. In most of the rest of the world, where the cultures are older by hundreds, even thousands of years, most people are certain there are ghosts. However, popular wisdom is a poor source of authority. There are many things that a majority of people believe in that time and/or science have proven wrong. The wisdom of the scriptures has proven to be reliable, so that is where we should turn for an answer.

  • The British Perception: blending in across the pond

    The interesting thing about being in certain parts of Europe is that as a white, middle-aged, American woman it is entirely possible to blend. There are a few dead giveaways: blonde highlights, chubbiness and loudness are stereotypes that Europeans immediately attribute to American women. But if I wear the right coat, hat and scarf, keep my mouth shut and don’t make any sudden movements, chances are no one will know I was not born and bred here.
