  • This apple didn’t fall far from the family tree

    I frequently notice random bruises on my legs, arms and torso, and have absolutely no idea how they got there. It could be that I bruise easily, but the truth is, I am a total klutz. I am so accident prone that it hardly registers anymore when I bump into inanimate objects or trip over my left feet.

    Marianne Brown had her first experience with clay when she was nine-years-old and took a class at the Indianapolis Art League.

  • School board considers tax increase

     

    Oldham County homeowners could see another increase in their property taxes if a recommendation by Oldham County Schools is approved by the Board of Education at a special meeting Sept. 11.

    OCS Superintendent Will Wells plans to recommend a “four percent” increase, referred by that number because it represents the amount of increased revenue that would be raised by the school district. It is the highest amount the board can approve without the tax being subjected to a recall, OCS spokeswoman Tracy Harris said.

  • CityPlace ready for first event

  • Races offer student early training for Marines

     

    As many teenagers jump in their new cars and speed off to the big football game on Friday night, 16-year-old Alden Sachs is most likely training for his next military marathon.

  • Football: South dancing into showdown vs. Anderson

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham football will waltz into a Top 10 dance Friday night looking to swing with the partner it took.

    “Dance with the girl we’ve brought” has been a motto for South coaches this season.

    In past years the Dragons have gotten too creative in game planning for individual teams to the point that it becomes a detriment, coach Jamie Reed said.

    This year South, ranked No. 7 in Class 5A by the Associated Press and coming off a win against Collins, is sticking with what it does best – running the ball.
