  • Three powerful battlegrounds of faith

     In his book, “Fuzzy Memories,” Jack Handey writes, “There used to be this bully who would demand my lunch money every day. Since I was smaller, I would give it to him.  Then I decided to fight back. I started taking karate lessons, but the instructor wanted $5 a lesson. That was a lot of money. I found that it was cheaper to pay the bully, so I gave up karate.”

  • Corrections -Jan. 14, 2016

    There were two mistakes in our Best Of Readers’ Choice award special section in the Jan. 7 issue of The Oldham Era. The name of Griffin McLarty, tied for runner-up in the Best Athlete category, was misspelled. Also, in the Best Coach category, winner Amira Stevens is with CrossFit 222, not CrossFit Bluegrass Oldham.

    Also, although many voters wrote in Stoess Hardware as their choice for Best Hardware Store, that business is now known as Crestwood Hardware.

    We apologize for the errors.

  • Optimistic for 2016

     I’ve got a feeling that 2016 is going to be a good year.  

    I have no idea where it’s coming from, but it’s there.  This is going to be a good year.

    By Ginger Lumpkin

     I’ve been hanging out down in Chattanooga for a couple of days. Meeting with friends I haven’t seen for a quarter of a century, and taking a bit of time for a much needed respite from the craziness that is everyday life.  The holidays pretty much zapped my will to live, but I’m optimistic about the new year, and am trying to start off right.

  • Being considerate of others good for you

    Your life is as big as your capacity to consider others.  Caring about other people is essential to your own happiness.  So is letting other people care about you, and making that easier for them.  Beyond the fleeting happiness that pleasure can bring comes the lasting happiness that caring about others can bring.  The happiest people are always the most altruistic.

  • Gameday Preview: Oldham County looks to get back on track against confident North Oldham

    Oldham County is well aware how dangerous North Oldham can be in January. One of the Colonels’ four regular season losses last year came from the Mustangs, and OC understands the importance of getting back on track against them Friday night.

  • Pfaff and Heffington share unique player-coach bond

    When the girls’ basketball teams of South Oldham and North Oldham tip off Tuesday night at 7:30, not only will two teams battle for an important district seed, but two coaches will rekindle a relationship that started on the court.

    More importantly, if it wasn’t for one these coaches, the other might not be coaching on the opposite bench.
