    There are four dimensions of life (length, breadth, depth and height) that we must consider as we take advantage of continued learning. The beginning of power and wisdom is consciously opening our minds and being receptive to the countless wonders that abound.

    In response to the question, “How long do you want to live?” I always reply, “As long as I can.” One dimension of life is length, and most people want to live in that dimension.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Colonels fall at Anderson

    LAWRENCEBURG – Anderson County's post-game locker room chat took longer than usual last Tuesday.

    Much longer.

    To be sure, Anderson County was happy with its 49-43 win over regional foe Oldham County.

    It was how the Lady Bearcats closed things out – or, more accurately, did not close them out, on the home court at that – that had Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell in less than a jovial mood.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Mustangs hold on to beat Atherton

    GOSHEN – North Oldham went into its game against Atherton 2-2 but yet to play a close game.

    So when Lady Rebel forward Jasmine Lewis knocked down two free throws to trim North’s lead to 52-50 with less than two minutes to play Tuesday, Lady Mustangs coach Dan Pfaff wanted to see how his team would respond.

    North got the job done, holding on for a 62-56 win behind 24 points from junior guard Cat Fiorito. Fiorito hit all eight free throws she took in the final minute to seal the victory.

  • Levitch seeing bigger role for No. 4 Cards

    Facing a pesky Marshall University team last month, Louisville coach Rick Pitino was looking for a second-half lineup that could put the game away.

    Pitino turned to Cardinals regulars like Wayne Blackshear, Chris Jones and Montrezl Harrell.

    He also turned to walk-on sophomore guard David Levitch.

    The former North Oldham star played 15 minutes, scoring six points and grabbing two steals in what turned out to be an 85-67 U of L win.

  • Boys Basketball: Trimble’s Dunaway does in South

    CRESTWOOD – Minutes after his team beat Trimble County by 35 points Friday, Oldham County coach Coy Zerhusen said the Raiders would “surprise some people in a couple of games this year.”

    Zerhusen’s prediction came true three nights later.

    Center Michael Dunaway scored 33 points and Trimble stunned South Oldham 65-53 Monday night on the Dragons’ home court.

    It was the Raiders’ first win against South since a 59-56 victory on Dec. 15, 2000 – nine games into coach Steve Simpson’s first season in Crestwood.

  • Boys Basketball: Colonels reach 100 in blowout of KCD

    BUCKNER – Improved defense led to Oldham County’s best offensive output in nearly 14 years Saturday night.

    Six OC players scored in double-figures as the Colonels moved to 6-0 on the season.

  • Girls Basketball: Davis, Stewart lead Lady Colonels past Presentation

    BUCKNER – One day after its worst offensive performance of the year, Oldham County had its best Saturday afternoon.

    The Lady Colonels scored their most points of the young season in a 62-44 home win over the Toppers in the 12th Annual Ronald McDonald House Classic.

    OC (2-4) shot 43 percent from the floor and 44 percent from 3-point range against Presentation (2-4).

    BEDFORD – Oldham County is still undefeated and still rolling.

    The latest obstacle for the Colonels was district foe Trimble County Friday night.

    OC handled the Raiders, forcing a running clock and cruising to a 64-29 road win.

    The Colonels (5-0, 1-0 District 29) have won each of their five games this season by at least 11 points and their last three (wins at University Heights, Anderson County and Trimble) by an average of 29.7 points.
