  • Big crowds greet White Castle mobile

    Last Thursday Oldham County residents proved that White Castle was what they craved.

    A visit by the White Castle Crave Mobile led to a steady lunchtime crowd in La Grange last week, as the truck set up shop in the Kroger parking lot.

    Many people lined up well before the 11 a.m. start time for the food truck, which had a steady line of at least 50 people waiting to order during lunch hours.

    Mark Logsdon, General Manager of White Castle System Inc., said the truck showed up to “feed the members of craver nation.”

  • Program receives twice the help for military dogs

    Howls of praise will be ringing out this holiday season thanks to a local veterinary center.

    The “Joy to the Woof” program sponsored by the Pewee Valley Veterinary Center has created 25 care packages for military service dogs. In its second year, the program provides specialty gear like goggles and protective booties for the four-legged soldiers.

    “Unfortunately they are forgotten a lot of the time,” Carolyne Tilford, a veterinary technician at the center said. “They go through a lot, it’s not easy.”

  • Childers named county employee of the year

    Jessica Childers, a county jail employee for 19 years, has been selected by Judge-Executive David Voegele as Oldham County Employee of the Year. Voegele made the announcement during a recent awards ceremony at the John W. Black Community Center.

    Childers, who began at the jail as guard, worked her way up through the years to her current position as administrative assistant to Jailer Mike Simpson.

  • School board to redraw member lines

    Fresh off redrawing school attendance boundaries, the members of the Oldham County Board of Education are redrawing their lines too.

    The member boundary lines are redrawn every 10 years and the new lines should help balance out inequities in the current boundaries, according to the board.

    The biggest adjustment will come from a policy change that states prison populations will no longer be counted, like they were in the previous redrawing of member lines. The board has not yet taken action on the new map, but brought it up for discussion at its December meeting.
