  • Find the pot o'gold around you

    Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!  I’m writing to you today from Ireland, the land of saints and scholars.  Can’t say I’ve seen either of those yet, but within the first 24 hours I did see many other stereotypical sights.  
    I’m on an Irish scavenger hunt, and I have already marked several things off the list:

    Pot of Gold
    Castle-check  
    Rainbow over castle-check
    Guinness Beer-check
    Pot of Gold
    Green grass-check
    Moss covered stones-check
    Irish Whiskey-check

  • Get in the right zone for best planting options

    By Patrice M. Smith

    We have encountered quite a long winter, ample amounts of snow and rain.  You have been reading my column and using your time wisely to scour the catalogues, watching gardening TV and hopefully you have made notes and devised a gardening plan.  

    That’s great and I’m very proud of you.

  • Jesus said: We need not fear death

    Most people are scared to death of death.  That may be a silly statement, but it is true.  Look at all the lists of what scares people the most.  Death is number one.  We feel death’s presence when we enter or leave a hospital, so most people try not to.  We reflect on mortality every time we go into a funeral home, so people rarely do.  We see death on the nightly news every night, and we try not to relate, not to take it personal, but it is.  It is very personal.

  • ROUNDING THE BASES: Colonels offense struggles, Mustangs stay unbeaten

    BUCKNER - Oldham County is doing everything right defensively. Pitchers are throwing strikes and defense is making routine plays. Now the Colonels need to offense to click to “piece it all together.”

  • South Oldham's simple man

    South Oldham baseball has a new look this year, but it’s a trend that takes one back in time. Stirrups and shorter baseball pants are now replacing the modern trend of long pants worn to a players’ ankles.
