    Sixty-one middle schoolers were in Crestwood this week at South Oldham’s boys basketball camp.

  • Aces ready for state tournament

    Coach Ed Raymond hopes a hard schedule has gotten his team prepared for the challenges of a state tournament.

    The Oldham Aces, based out of American Legion Post 39 in La Grange, will be in Benton this weekend for the U-17 state tournament.

    The double-elimination tournament starts Thursday and runs through the weekend.

  • NOLL 12's cruise to district crown

    LA GRANGE – North Oldham Little League’s 12-year-olds crushed the field on their way to a District 2 title.

    NOLL capped off a dominant tournament with a 24-2 win over Nelson County Tuesday night in the championship game at Brad Clifford Field at Walsh Park.

    The 22-run win came on the heels of a 13-0 win Sunday over Nelson in NOLL’s first tournament game. NOLL also beat Nelson 16-2 and South Oldham 21-4 last week in pool play.

  • What did the founders of America say about God?

    Hanging over my office desk is a picture of General George Washington in humble prayer in a pine grove, with his horse, at Valley Forge. It is an inspiring picture of an inspiring man of prayer. Skeptics want to claim that all representations of our first president as a devout man of faith are false.

    Here are some of the things George Washington said about God. They are taken from the book, George Washington, The Writings of Washington, edited by John C. Fitzpatrick.

  • Learning to celebrate the Fourth outside of July

    A recent remark made by a co-worker following a World Cup soccer game got me thinking.

    He said, and I’m paraphrasing here, “I’m not really a fan of soccer, but I become nationalistic when America competes on a national level.”

    Patriotism is defined as love for or devotion to one’s country. With the Fourth of July holiday looming, I wonder if we feel devotion to and love for our country all the time or just every four years with a World Cup or every two years with an Olympics or just one day every July.

    Summer is here and it is time to enjoy burgers on a grill.

  • Seeking World War II vets from Oldham County

    A few weeks ago I wrote about Honor Flights. Since then, a group of Oldham County residents has begun work to identify World War Two veterans who live in Oldham County. The group wants to make sure that all Oldham County veterans that are eligible for Honor Flights are able to participate.

    Honor Flights take veterans, free of charge, to Washington DC to visit the World War Two Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial (the Marine Memorial).

  • La Grange student receives LG&E employee scholarship

    Preparing to head off to college is an exciting time that can quickly turn burdensome as college-related expenses add up. This year, as it has for the last 16 years, the LG&E and KU Foundation is relieving some of that burden by awarding $1,200 in financial assistance for up to four years to 10 outstanding college-bound students. The program is available to the children of employees of LG&E and KU Energy LLC, and is intended to be used toward tuition, books, fees, supplies and classroom equipment.
