  • Spending a day observing Oldham County courts

    In trying to fully understand how the various branches of Oldham County government function, I’ve gone to court; specifically Oldham County Circuit Court.

    During my first visit, there were two lawyers, Judge Karen Conrad and me. The lawyers sat and discussed motions, subpoenas, “special masters” and various legal issues in voices both calm and passionate. The judge asked thoughtful questions and made some decisions over the course of about an hour. The whole process reminded me of a chess match.

  • Truitt: Reliving my teenage dreams of Ricky Schroder

    Recently, I was perusing my junior high yearbooks when I found the following inscription from 1983: “Gingeretta, you’d make a gorgeous model, ya know. I think Ricky Schroder doesn’t know what he’s been missing! Someday, when you’re a rich, famous model, and I’m a rich, famous writer, I’ll call you and say, ‘Come on up to my penthouse for some champagne!’ Have a smashing summer!!! Luv, Jo”

  • Earley: A Parade For a Unique King

    Jesus’ preaching ministry is winding down. He has healed the sick, the lame and the blind, has raised people from the dead, walked on water, calmed the storm, fed thousands with a few loaves and fish and taught them about God’s never ending love. He also embarrassed the religious elite repeatedly, while threatening their system of power with all their laws and sacrifices. They want him dead. He told his disciples they would get their wish over and over again before they got there.

  • Rigdon back to captain Lady Colonels

    As Oldham County charged to a second straight Region 8 title last year, one of its best players was stuck in the dugout.

    Kailey Rigdon, a junior first baseman garnering Division-I interest, dove back into third base during a game over the 2013 spring break. The momentum of her dive carried her body forward, but her arm stayed put, grabbing the base.

    A season-ending torn labrum in her shoulder was the result. The injury was especially frustrating, Rigdon said, because it affected her college plans.
