  • Let God use you in a miracle

    I don’t know where this story came from, but I love the way an unsuspecting traveler finds himself in the middle of a miracle. Jerry is on his way to Chicago on business and prays, “Please God, do me a favor. Let there be an empty seat next to mine, I don’t need any distractions.” Instead, he is seated next to a young boy named Michael, who is traveling unattended and he is scared. As the jet prepares for takeoff Jerry says to Michael, “Right about now, I usually say a prayer. I ask God to keep the plane safe and to send angels to protect us.”

  • Boys Basketball: South honoring ‘Coach Bob’ with tournament

    When South Oldham coach Steve Simpson started the team’s Christmas break tournament last year, he wanted to name the event each year after a different person who was important to the school.

    The 2013 event was named after John Fendley, a late county attorney who’d been a devoted South basketball fan.

    For the tournament’s second run, Simpson looked to his own coaching staff.

    The Dragons and seven other teams will compete this weekend in the Coach Bob Classic, named for South assistant Bob Simpson.

  • Best in Hoops Tournament finals: Eastern too much for OC

    BUCKNER – After watching Oldham County win its first nine games, future opponents got a glimpse of what it takes to beat the Colonels on Sunday.

    Unfortunately for those teams, they don’t have the combination of Cameron Reed, a 6-foot-6 wing who can shoot-and-make from anywhere on the floor, Jonathan Lane, a power forward with a 7-foot wingspan and Trey Moses, a 6-9 center who takes away the paint.

    That’s the buzz saw OC ran into against Eastern in the Best in Hoops Tournament finals Sunday night.

  • Best in Hoops Classic: Colonels beat St. X, advance to finals

    BUCKNER – Oldham County had done plenty to impress going into its Best in Hoops Tournament this weekend, starting 7-0 and beating all but one opponent by at least 20 points.

    But the Colonels hadn’t shown they could win a close game under heavy pressure from the other team.

    OC won its first such game 67-61 against Central Thursday night, then won another tense contest Saturday in the tournament semifinals.

    St. Xavier cut a 14-point Colonel lead to 32-30 in the third quarter before OC re-gathered and rallied for a 60-48 home win.
