  • Ready, Set, Run program teaches...

    Children cross the finish line. — smiles beaming with confidence as their parents go over to congratulate them. They’ve been immersed in a running program since mid-April.

  • Two Crestwood residents, Aaron...

    The high school activity of marching band is something that thousands of young adults participate in across the country. Usually the students play until they graduate, some even play at their college, but there are a select few who go above and beyond. The major leagues, the big time, the greatest stage that can be played upon is through Drum Corps International and two boys from South Oldham High School, Aaron Bailie and Greg Deinlein, have been selected to live their dream.

  • Oldhmam County’s Meghan Theiss...

    Two months ago, Meghan Theiss’s life was fairly ordinary. Months removed from taking the final swing of her prep golf career, Theiss, like many other graduating seniors, was preparing for life beyond high school. That is, until the Kentucky Junior PGA Championship got in the way.
    With one last shot at the event, Theiss made her chance count this time, parlaying a strong showing in the tournament’s opening round into a three stroke win at 3 over par.
    Still, despite the pressure, for her, the mindset was just to compete like anything else.

  • Just a bit outside: Back at the...

    I’ll admit, I was a little hesitant when I found out I could get credentials to the Quaker State 400. I’ve never really been a big fan of NASCAR and definitely never expected to go anywhere near a race.
    Still, when the opportunity arose, I figured I couldn’t turn it down. A free Sprint Cup race at a speedway only 35 miles from The Era?
    What’s the worst that could happen?
    It wouldn’t take me long to find out — about 12 hours to be exact.

  • Shooting Sports programs offers...

    Honesty, character, patience and focus are all things taught by Oldham County 4-H Shooting Sports.

Entirely taught by volunteers in the Oldham County area, kids have the opportunity to take their popular Kentucky interest and learn how to use it properly.

  • Chris Stobaugh named head boys’...

    The North Oldham boys’ basketball team will have a new head coach when it takes the floor next season. Assistant coach Chris Strobaugh has been hired to replace David Henley.
    Henley, who posted a 34-28 record during his two seasons at the school, decided to make a move to Eastern High and the Seventh Region earlier this summer.
    That said, once the job became available, Strobaugh said there was no doubt was his next plan of action would be.

  • Breaking down the 2012 NBA Draft...

    Now that the 2012 NBA Draft is in the books, I just wanted to take a little time to break down how I think the lottery played out. That said, I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of the NBA so I asked one of my best friend, Matt Smythe, to help me out. This is a bit of a departure from stuff normally on the site so let me know what you think. If you agree or disagree with any of my critiques, let me hear about it. 

  • James Buescher wins the ESPN...

    The racing weekend at Kentucky Speedway kicked off last night as James Buescher captured the top finish at the UNOH 225 in his No. 31 Chevy, leading 119 laps at the race. He started in third.
    Brad Keselowski, the winner of the Nationwide at the speedway last year, climbed from a 17th place start to finish in second.
    Ty Dillon, Matt Crafton and Timothy Peters also finished 3-4-5 to round out the top-5. Of those, Dillon was the only one to grab the top spot during the race, leading 27 laps.

  • La Grange doesn’t expect much...

     Though set to take place nearly 40 miles away, the Quaker State 400 expects to bring plenty of money to the region when it comes to the area over the coming weekend. The only problem? Many local business say they don’t expect to see a dime.
       Part of that is due to a new race getting off the ground, Discover Downtown La Grange Executive Director Linda Goin noted.
