    Many Oldham County residents are unaware that last year's Kentucky Derby winner, Super Saver, was conditioned at Highpointe Training Center in La Grange during his two-year-old season.

  • Stay awake, don't steal the pens and quit looking for love at the office

    We need to have standards and stick to them.

    We have to be moral and decent and honest and trustworthy of course. How we behave at work has an effect on our fellow workers.

    Here are eight other rules to help you become fantastically successful along the way:

  • Lake gets new fishing dock

    BUCKNER – Fishermen have a  better chance of landing the big one in the Wendell Moore Park Lake thanks to a new fishing dock.
    The dock,  which stretches 50-feet out into the lake, ends a 30-foot wide T and allows improved access to the water on the 20 plus acre lake. The lake has limited access along a sometimes steep shoreline and since half the lake is not available due to the shoreline being on the grounds of the Kentucky State Reformatory.

  • Lakin, Mason make preseason all-state

    They are the arm and the bat that just may carry the Oldham County High School baseball team over the hump to a regional baseball championship this season.

  • GINGER: Decluttering brings remorse for selling Grandma's cookie jar

    Besides my hymnal collection, and the refrigerator magnets I pick up to commemorate my travels, I’m not much of a collector. In fact, I’m kind of the opposite.

    I get tired of having stuff around, so I am constantly decluttering. With seven people in our home, things tend to accumulate rather quickly, and I start to feel like I’m suffocating.

  • PUBLISHER: Trains, planes and daily news

    Arriving in La Grange for the first time last November, I was as giddy as a 5-year-old to see a train run through the middle of town. The attraction of trains for boys is a somewhat odd trait of male genes, but one that has always captured my attention from the small-scale toy trains to standing and analyzing the mechanics of large diesels sitting on sidetracks.

  • Did you know? President Woodrow Wilson honored La Grange resident for innovation

    “Like writing history with lightning,” were the words used by President Woodrow Wilson to describe the first movie shown in the White House in 1915.

    That movie, "Birth of a Nation," was created by La Grange native D.W. Griffith, whose initials, carved by his own hand in concrete, are still visible in La Grange today.
