  • Football: Mustangs, minus Heckenberg, play at North Bullitt

    The momentum North Oldham gained by beating OC 42-7 in its opener came to a halt last week when quarterback Taylor Heckenberg separated his throwing shoulder in a 24-21 loss at Class 2A No. 4 Christian Academy-Louisville.

    With Heckenberg out for at least a couple of weeks, sophomore Bryce Webb and/or junior T.C. Falkner will handle quarterback duties at 7:30 Friday night at North Bullitt (1-1).

    “(The difference is) experience more than anything,” Mustangs coach Billy Martin said. “They can run our offense.”

  • La Grange council approves changes to business licenses law

    The La Grange City Council has amended its business licensing ordinance after the Kentucky Attorney General said some recent changes were out of line.

    Months ago the council amended the ordinance to include attorneys or other businesses who did business within the city limits to apply for a license. At the time, city attorney Steve Emery said the law wasn’t specifically targeted to attorneys but rather strengthening language already in place.

    After weeks of debate, things could get a little fowl-minded at the next council meeting for the city of La Grange.
