  • Fields of soccer dreams

    Driving on Ky. 146 in Buckner on weekday afternoons in 1998, Lauri Rush's oldest children, Ashlee, then 12 and Joey, then 11, got excited each time they passed the soccer fields at the South Complex.

    Ashlee and Joey saw fields of other children playing soccer in the Oldham County Youth Soccer Association and the Thoroughbreds Soccer Club.

    "Every time we passed, the kids said, 'Oh, that looks fun!'" Lauri said. "So we just tried it and they loved it. We'd try other sports, but they always stuck with (the Thoroughbreds)."

  • Grand Stamm: Basketball defined by personal ties

    I’ve grown up as a big University of Kentucky fan, the same as my father and became a basketball fanatic. I still remember attending my first Wildcats’ game, against Alabama during the 1995-96 season, which later ended with UK winning the national championship.

    My dad and I got tickets from a co-worker of my mom’s a month before the game. Those days couldn’t go by fast enough.

  • GINGER: Santa's way better than Snow White

    My 5-year-old daughter is going through that stage of trying to discern the truth about Santa.
    Listening to her speculate has become a source of entertainment around our household.
    Her logic and reasoning reminds me of, well, myself actually.
    It’s all over the place, and depending on what thought pops into her head at any given moment, it can entirely change her mood.
    One morning, as we were driving to preschool, she was providing her younger brother with a running commentary on the merits of believing in Santa Claus.

  • BOB MUELLER: Appreciate yourself

    I know a super volunteer for many organizations who works really hard at being generous and helpful. If anyone has a need, she goes out of her way to try to fill it. The people in her life greatly appreciate her.

    But ironically she has expressed to me that she feels completely isolated and unappreciated. At times she can fall into a depression, feeling that she gives so much but gets nothing in return.

    I told her I think I know why she’s so stuck. It is difficult for her to receive any kind of appreciation or praise. She’s a master at deflection.

  • Eagle Scout projects benefit City of Prospect

    Six students, including two from Oldham County, have been named honorary citizens of Prospect for donating their hand-crafted Boy Scout projects to the city’s Putney Pond and Woodlands.

    Matthew Greene, 14, and Nick Patterson, 15, both of Goshen, were among four other scouts recognized at the city’s December meeting.

    Patterson, a sophomore at North Oldham High School, collected and cut red cedar and spent his weekends building five park benches in his parents’ garage. The benches are now part of an outdoor classroom in the Woodlands.
