  • 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.

  • 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.
