  • Grand Stamm: I've gone to...

    Though I’ve lived in a few different cities and towns, I’ve never lived anywhere but Kentucky.

    And in this state, basketball takes on a life of its own.

    Two weeks ago, I felt like I went to basketball heaven. I covered two of the highest levels of basketball and a few times, I had to remind myself I wasn't dreaming.

  • Whitfield, Wright pick up region...

    The South Oldham High School girls basketball team’s season ended with a loss to Walton-Verona in the eighth region championship game, but recognition for the Lady Dragons’ season isn’t over.

    SOHS senior Jasmine Whitfield has been named the eighth region’s co-player of the year, along with Owen County senior guard Rianna Gayheart, by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. Whitfield has also been named a finalist for the Kentucky Miss Basketball award, which will be announced April 28.

  • Students take in the ride to Rupp

    Aside from a few scattered colors, an army of blue-clad students wait anxiously behind Oldham County High School.

    Five buses stand ready to transport the students to Rupp Arena in Lexington March 15 to watch the Colonels’ boys’ basketball team play Bowling Green in the first round of the state tournament.

    Students traveled to the game to cheer on their classmates, hang out with friends and even take advantage of being out of class. But by the end of the day, a few found more important reasons why they attended.

  • Oldham children, parents...

    The run-down park looks like nothing more than that.

    In the park, an unassuming, old, concrete building sits 500 feet off River Road in Louisville. But inside, there’s a gymnasium where performers twirl, eat fire and fly through the air.

    The American Turners Circus is in its 62nd year inside the building and features a number of Oldham County performers who participate in acrobatics, juggling and dancing.

    But many people don’t know the circus exists.

  • Orcas have fluid motion in the...

    The members of the Orcas swim team are spread across three lanes of the pool during practice March 9.

    They swim to the other end of the pool in groups of three, their legs constantly kicking with the assistance of boogie boards.

    But this season, the swimmers haven’t needed much help.
