  • Destiny in Orb-it!

    By Chuck Harper

    The result of the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby was satisfying in a lot of ways.
    For the owners of Orb and trainer Shug McGaughey, they finally got that equine monkey off their backs.
    All you needed to know, you saw on Shug’s face as the NBC cameras showed his expression right after Orb crossed the finish line first. Shug had that same “cat-that-ate-the-canary” look all week.

  • OC SOFTBALL EARNS NO. 1 SEED

    The No. 8 Oldham County Lady Colonels ran their district winning streak to 22 games May 1, knocking off upset-minded South Oldham in a 2-1 nail-biter.
    “They played better than us,” Oldham County coach Steve Leanhart said. “We didn’t come prepared, we didn’t come ready to play. We had 15 out of 18 outs as pop-ups.”
    South Oldham certainly had its chances, looking poised to cut into an early 2-0 OC lead with one out in the fifth inning.
    Nothing came of it though as the Lady Dragons squandered a first-and-third situation with a pick-off and a strikeout.
