  • Broadway. The name alone gives performers chills. It’s the pinnacle of live theater across the world, encompassing 40 theaters in Manhattan.

    If you’re on Broadway, you’ve made it big.

    And that’s where you can find Westport’s Mara Newbery.

    Newbery is performing as part of the first Broadway cast of “A Christmas Story — The Musical” through Dec. 30.

  • The Nez Perce Trail Foundation elected a La Grange resident as its president during the foundation’s annual meeting Oct. 19.

    The Nez Perce Trail Foundation works closely with the Nez Perce National Historic Trail which is administered by the U.S. Forest Service. Congress passed the National Trails Act in 1968 and the Nez Perce National Historic Trail was recognized by an act of Congress in 1986. 

  • Eighteen new artists have adjudicated into the Kentucky Crafted program, the Kentucky Arts Council's marketing assistance program that provides opportunities for artists to expand their market reach.

Artists are accepted into the program based on artistic excellence and market readiness as judged by an independent panel of art and craft industry professionals.



  • Family Feud host Steve Harvey and his no-holds-barred brand of comedy are back for a new season of America's favorite family competition. And this time, Harvey welcomes a family from Oldham County. 

    The Hartman family from Crestwood faces off against the Williams family from Dallas for the chance to win up to $100,000 and a brand new car, along with some serious bragging rights. 

    The show featuring the Hartman family airs at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 on WDRB (Channel 41).

  • The sun glints off an aluminum can alongside Fendley Mill Road. For two La Grange women, this can is a sought-after prize.

    It’s not just one can, though, it’s a whole beer case stuffed with empty cans.

    “Look, a treasure!” says Sue Macuch.

  • If last week’s Hatfields and McCoys miniseries on the History Channel has sparked your interest in the feud, you’re not alone — more than 13.9 million people tuned into the series’ debut.

    The story has attracted interest for decades, with dozens of books and films published on the subject. There are at least nine historic sites in Kentucky and at least as many in West Virginia, most open to the public.

  • Hosparus needs volunteers to provide patient support and assistance with its bereavement program in Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties. 

    Hosparus will host a free volunteer training, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. (lunch included) on Saturday, June 23 at its Shelbyville office, 540 Main St.

    To pre-register, contact Denise Stemm at 502-719-4153 or by email to dstemm@hosparus.org by Thursday, June 21.  

    Those unable to attend on June 23 are encouraged to contact Denise about future training dates.

  • Finding the perfect Derby hat is hard — sometimes seemingly impossible. But a Prospect woman is trying to make it much, much easier.

    Lisa Lake Roedemeier launched her first hat line in 2009 after not being able to find the perfect hat. Instead, she crafted her own.

    It turns out Roedemeier has a knack for millinery, so she launched Madam Foo Foo Couture at Rodes For Him and For Her three years ago.

    Roedemeier, a long-time racehorse owner with the Media Thoroughbred Group, named the company after one of her horses.

  • When he began collecting Kentucky Derby memorabilia 14 years ago, Harry Goldberg though it would be a fun, cheap hobby.

    At the time, the La Grange resident worked for an auction house and would see Derby collectibles come through. 

    Now, Goldberg has more than 4,700 collectibles, including 1,800 drinking glasses and almost every Derby Festival pin.

    “All I’m missing is ‘73,” he says. “It’s the rarest.”

  • Snooki’s slippers may be a Shore thing, but they were an Oldham County thing first.

    That was before Goshen resident Pat Yates struck a deal with Nicole “Snooki” Pilozzi, the diminutive housemate with a larger-than-life personality on MTV’s hit reality show, “Jersey Shore.”

    And now, Pilozzi and Yates expect to strike gold – again.

    Yates owns Happy Feet, a slipper company his family started in 1995, long before Pilozzi hit the reality TV scene.

  • Derby season is approaching faster than a horse down the backstretch, and that means lots of stories about sleek, glistening Thoroughbreds.

    This is not one of those stories, because this is not that kind of riding.

    The horses at Little Big Horse Trails in La Grange are sturdy and calm, used to carrying regular-sized people who don’t know how to ride — not minute jockeys with decades spent in a saddle.

  • For a long time, Scott New has wanted everyone to see Daniel Boone as a real person.

    While many credit the legendary frontiersman with the exploration and settlement of Kentucky, there is no doubt that he was one of many who opened the doors for future generations to call Kentucky home.

    And there are many who would agree with Kentucky Humanities Council Chautauqua performer Scott New who said he has “always been an admirer of Boone.”

  • Sponsors, friends and families of the Greater Kentucky Muscular Dystrophy Association Chapter enjoyed a day of celebration and advocacy Saturday, March 24 at The Sawyer Hayes Community Center at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park.

    More than 300 walkers joined together to show support for those living with a neuromuscular disease, by walking in honor of them, and raising $50,000 for the association.

  • Students at South Oldham High School will present "Beauty and the Beast" this weekend.

    Public performances of "Beauty and the Beast" are 7 p.m. Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24. A matinee performance is scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 24. 

    All performances take place in the SOHS auditorium, 5900 Veterans Memorial Parkway, Crestwood.

    Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and senior citizens. Call 241-6681 for information.
