  • NEW PLACE, NEW FACE, PLENTY OF STORIES

    For the past week, I’ve been driving around Oldham County as just another face in a place people apparently call the OC? I’m still trying to find the beach.

    We could start from the beginning, but that was 25 years ago and I don’t remember much of it. So we’ll start with this: I’m a lifelong Kentuckian who has made his way to “The OC” to write about the faces, places and people that make up these communities.

  • Local to appear on reality TV show

    Georgia is a long way to go for a bra fitting, especially if you’re a goat.

    But that’s exactly where Betty, an “extremely well-endowed” Myotonic goat, traveled to get a little special attention from Cynthia and Molly of Lifetime’s reality show “Double Divas.”

    The premise of the show is that the owners design and create custom lingerie, especially bras, for clients with special needs. Betty certainly has special needs.

  • MORE PARENT COMPLAINTS FOR SCHOOL’S REDISTRICTING PLAN

    The final round of public forums relating to the redistricting of Oldham County schools was held Thursday night at Oldham County High School. In all, the school district has held nine meetings allowing the public to see the proposed changes and offer some suggestions.

    On Thursday, Michael Williams, director of pupil personnel at the schools, unveiled four new proposals of how the schools would make up for the loss of Liberty Elementary which is in its final year. Parents got to see the outlines for the new districts and voice their opinions on them.

  • Local novel picked up as TV pilot

    Lynn Tincher started her first novel 16 times.

    It eventually turned into the first novel in a series of three, with a fourth in the works. And now, the book that took 16 tries to get written is slated to be made into a TV pilot.

    The psychological thriller Afterthoughts has been picked up by Tilted Pictures of Los Angeles for the filming of a pilot episode in 2014.

  • County redistricted, representatives increased

    Oldham County’s representation has increased to four in the Kentucky House of Representatives, but it will come at the expense of splitting up the southwest portion of the county.

    Three Louisville-based House districts shoot up into Oldham County and will split Pewee Valley and Crestwood into separate districts.

  • Blasting continues on Highway 42

    The East End Bridge project, which will connect the Gene Snyder Freeway with Utica, Ind. finally got underway this summer. Eventually, the bridge will allow travelers to cross the Ohio River and access Interstate 65 or Interstate 71 without having to drive through Louisville.

    Before completion though, construction crews will be shutting down parts of Gene Snyder as well as U.S. 42 daily in order to do some blasting. The Gene Snyder will have to be extended to the river, approximately a 1.5 mile addition.
