  • Soccer coverage: Simply a bad call

    Size matters.

    Just ask the dozens of athletes who recently competed in the Play for the Cure soccer tournament in Elizabethtown.

    In the March 25 edition of The Oldham Era, we published photos of two winning teams – the LSA East Under-12 girls’ soccer team and the Oldham County Thoroughbreds Under-12 combined boys’ soccer team.

    We love recognizing local students and athletes for their accomplishments, and rely on teachers, coaches and  parents to submit photos of those accomplishments.

  • How Much Is a Miracle?

    Why were the disciples so surprised that Jesus rose from the dead? Do you remember what Jesus told them at Caesarea Philippi? He said, “the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again” (Mark 8:31). The Bible records a number of other times Jesus tells them he will suffer and die.

  • Finding their focus

    LOUISVILLE – After a rough start against an extremely hard schedule, the Oldham County High School softball team may have found their stride Monday with an 18-1 blowout of Sacred Heart.

    “We had some rugged opening games,” OCHS coach Dennis Summitt said. “I saw a lot of what I want to see out there today as far as supporting each other. Hopefully we have turned the corner.”

    The Lady Colonels led 10-1 at the bottom of the fifth, before exploding for eight runs in the sixth to end the game.
