  • Dreaming the night away

    I have a pretty active nightlife. Occasionally, I find myself performing sultry tunes in a smoky lounge, or feverishly dancing with handsome men under the flashy lights of a discotheque, but these things don’t happen as often as I’d like. More often than not, I’m desperate. Desperately trying to save my children from a catastrophe, desperately searching for a clean, private stall in a public restroom, or having conversations with dead people, desperately trying to convey things I wish I’d said while they were still living.

  • Setting the Standard

    On Feb. 18, the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office was again awarded with the Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Certificate of Accreditation. The OCSO initially received this certification in 2009 and was one of only five sheriff’s offices in the state to achieve this honor.

    The Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations.

  • The battle of wills: Who do you think God is?

    What we believe about God will tell us a lot about ourselves.

    The prophet Isaiah shared this revelation from God about who God thinks He is. In Isaiah 45:5-6 we read, “I am the Lord and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord and there is no other.”

  • Water main break delays district basketball

    The District 29 boys and girls basketball tournaments scheduled to begin tonight at North Oldham have been postponed to tomorrow, North AD Alan Yanke said Tuesday afternoon.

    The reason for the postponements is a water main break in Goshen, which has affected water pressure in the area.

    Repairs are expected to be completed by Tuesday night, a Lousville Water Company spokesman told The Era Tuesday morning.

    Here is the new tournament schedule:
