  • Football: Mustangs shutout streak continues

    North Oldham’s defense had a perfect October.

    The Mustangs (7-2) recorded their fourth straight shutout Friday night, beating East Jessamine (3-6-1) 41-0 in Goshen.

    North’s goose-egg victory came on the heels of shutouts on Oct. 10 against Waggener (53-0), Oct. 17 against Atherton (49-0) and last week against Collins (43-0). The Mustangs haven’t allowed a point since a 21-13 loss at Spencer County on Sept. 26.

    North’s defensive performance on Friday included a Chris Burton interception for the second straight week.

  • Football: Colonels put together complete performance in win over J’Town

    JEFFERSONTOWN – Mike Shatzer is still in the early stages of building Oldham County’s football program to his liking.

    But for one wintry night at a nearly-empty stadium, the Colonels got a glimpse of what they hope might be the future, convincingly beating an opponent and having some fun along the way.

    Quarterback James Harding threw two touchdown passes to Carson Axtell and ran for another as OC beat Jeffersontown 35-14 on the road Friday night.

  • Friday football primer: Teams set to finish regular seasons

    It’s tune-up week for the county’s three football programs.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham will all play their regular season finales Friday before beginning the state playoffs on Nov. 7.

    For OC and South, Friday is a chance to fine-tune things and go into the playoffs with some momentum.

    North will have that objective Friday too, but can also improve its playoff seeding with a win and a little help from a school in a neighboring county.

  • Ghosts,mediums and the occult

    What did one ghost say to the other ghost? Answer: Do you believe in people? People in our country wonder if there are really ghosts. In most of the rest of the world, where the cultures are older by hundreds, even thousands of years, most people are certain there are ghosts. However, popular wisdom is a poor source of authority. There are many things that a majority of people believe in that time and/or science have proven wrong. The wisdom of the scriptures has proven to be reliable, so that is where we should turn for an answer.

  • The British Perception: blending in across the pond

    The interesting thing about being in certain parts of Europe is that as a white, middle-aged, American woman it is entirely possible to blend. There are a few dead giveaways: blonde highlights, chubbiness and loudness are stereotypes that Europeans immediately attribute to American women. But if I wear the right coat, hat and scarf, keep my mouth shut and don’t make any sudden movements, chances are no one will know I was not born and bred here.
