    The Titans cruised past South 60-42 Monday in an early battle of two teams expected to contend for the boys Region 8 crown. Collins' Ralphie Stone scored 16 off the bench in the win, while Deion Cochran added 15 for the Titans.

  • Fiscal Court approves comprehensive plan

     

    The Oldham County Fiscal Court has approved the latest edition of the county’s comprehensive plan, after rejecting a previous version in August.

    The newest version changes the most controversial part of the previous attempt, dealing with accessory dwelling units.

    The plan said the county should develop and adopt regulations for those units, called ADUs, rather than suggest they be allowed, as a previous version of the plan said.

    The new change was approved by the court, as was the plan as a whole, at its meeting on Tuesday.
