  • Crestwood's planning a comeback

    Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Crestwood Station is coming back to life.

    For 15 years, the shopping center has been dormant, with few but frequently changing tenants.

    But a revitalization in the center is taking hold, and a second All About Kids fitness facility will soon anchor the space.

    All About Kids is purchasing the 46,000-square-foot space and will remodel it to provide a place for gymnastics, cheerleading, tae kwon do, dance and swimming classes.

  • Pistols & a proposal

    Bullets weren’t the only thing in the air at Open Range Saturday — love was, too.

    Stefan Harp and his girlfriend, Lysa Shepard, arrived at the Crestwood gun range for what Lysa thought would be a normal day of shooting.

    She recalls being impressed that Harp thought to make a lane reservation in advance.

  • Running for a reason

    The rain begins to pick up as Stan Clark leads 20 runners up a steep hill near the entrance of Crestwood’s Spring Hill Estates.

    After they dash to the top of the hill, the South Oldham High School cross country and track coach eases behind the other runners at his own pace. The runners grit their teeth and groan, their breaths visible in the 40-degree Saturday morning chill, but Clark keeps the same determined look on his face.

  • Oldham high school coach disciplined after homecoming incident

    The Oldham County High School girls' basketball team has undergone a mid-season coaching change after a series of events Saturday.

    Coach Stephen Mullins reportedly faces disciplinary action after a verbal altercation between players, coaches and parents at Saturday's homecoming game. At this time, the involved parties and the extent to which the altercation happened are unclear.

    The Lady Colonels defeated Waggener 74-70 on Saturday.

    OCHS Athletic Director Kevin Combs said he cannot discuss personnel issues.

  • Miss Kentucky Soccer signs with Mississippi State

    Shortly after her sophomore year at South Oldham High School concluded, girls’ soccer midfielder Marissa Williams began visiting colleges.

    She’d planned a trip to the University of Alabama-Birmingham, but at the urging of her father, Jim Williams, Marissa also visited Mississippi State University.

    That afterthought visit sealed her decision.

  • Duncan, McIntosh take state titles

    It didn’t take long for Oldham County Middle School eighth grader Alex McIntosh to go from chump to champ.

    In just his second year wrestling, McIntosh is a state champion.

    McIntosh won the 168-pound weight class at the Kentucky Middle School Wrestling State Tournament Feb. 4 at Montgomery County, with an 8-4 win in the finals over Verity Middle School’s Grant Krueger.

  • History center seeks a summer intern

    The Oldham County History announces the Lowry Watkins, Jr. Summer Internship Program for college students.  This $1,200 award is open to college students with majors in art history, history, communications or education.

  • Wreck on I-71 delays traffic Friday afternoon

    A two-car wreck on I-71 southbound slowed traffic Friday afternoon just past the La Grange exit.

    A maroon Ford Explorer attempted to merge after getting on I-71 at exit 20 and rear-ended a brown van. The van went into the emergency lane and came to a stop, according to La Grange Fire Department Major Keith Smith. 

    The Explorer left the roadway and spun around in the median, ending up facing north. 

    The van's two occupants and the driver of the Explorer all refused transport. 

    The wreck has been cleared and I-71 is open.

  • Back biking through buildings

    Bikers will again zig-zag around obstacles in the La Grange Urban Short Track Series Saturday, but those obstructions will be doorways and office furniture.

    The race will begin at the La Grange Skate Park, cut through a wooded area to Third Avenue, north on Second Avenue and through The Oldham Era’s office at 202 S. First Ave.

    The series’ fourth race also incorporated buildings, as racers biked through the La Grange Welcome Center and Goose Creek Cycle.
