  • Apple Patch team picks up plenty...

        Taking to eastern Kentucky for the Special Olympics two weeks ago, several local residents were on hand to represent Oldham County in the annual two day event.

  • Goshen man files Title IX...

        The Kentucky Board of Education is under fire recently as Dick Richards, a resident of Goshen, Ky., has filed a federal civil rights complaint against the organization.
        Citing Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, Richards maintains statewide discrimination against girls in high school sports is still a very real problem and one the board isn’t addressing.
      After two appearances before the KBE in December of 2011 and February 2012 yielded no action, Richards decided to move forward with the filing.

  • Kentucky Karma folds after 7...

     Ideas can be hard to come by. Sometimes those ideas just need a little nudge before they become something. For some local women, the idea of throwing like a girl became more than just a saying; it became a way of life.
        For over seven years, the Kentucky Karma brought women from all over the state to represent a simple idea —  to play football. Based out of Crestwood, the Karma was Kentucky’s first competitive women’s football team.

  • Oldham County softball finishes...

        Taking to Jack C. Fisher Park in Owensboro over the weekend, Oldham County got off to a rough start in the Rawlings/KHSAA state softball tournament, dropping their opening round game June 7 4-1 to Boyle County.
        The Lady Rebels struck first in the second inning, plating one before opening up the game two innings later on a three-run outburst. Oldham County managed to salvage a run in the top of the sixth, but it would be too little too late.

  • Trent DiGiuro Foundation readies...

  • Soapbox derby makes strong...

    Just a year removed from an ominous start, the Greater Louisville Soapbox Derby looks to be back on solid footing after a successful first weekend in La Grange.     
     With more than two dozen racers and plenty of spectators out to see the event, race director John Martin said the day couldn’t have gone much better.
    “It went very well,” Martin said, “ It was my first race as the race director so we just wanted to get everybody in and out and wanted it to run smoothly and we think we did a pretty good job.”

  • Oldham County drops opener is...

    Oldham County got off to a rough start at the Rawlings/KHSAA state softball tournament, dropping their opening round game 4-1 to Boyle County.
        The Lady Rebels would strike first in the second inning, plating one, before opening up the game two innings later on a three run outburst. That said, Oldham County would manage to salvage a run in the top of the sixth, but it would be too little too late.
        The Lady Colonels would pick up five hits on the day, but their only RBI would come from Rebecca Wishnevski, who did not have a hit.

  • Soapbox derby returns to La...

    After taking a year off, the Greater Louisville Soapbox Derby will be back in full force for 2012, taking to the roads of Oldham County this Saturday.
    Launching from Eden Road in La Grange, the first heat is scheduled to start around 9 a.m. and run through 1 p.m.
    Better still, after last year’s poor turnout, the race will see two divisions full this time around as both the stock and super stock portions will square off with 12 racers in each division.

  • Oldham County ready for state...

    Though Oldham County will face plenty of new challenges Thursday in the first round of the KHSAA state softball tournament, at least one thing will feel all too familiar for the Lady Colonels.
    With 12th Region champion Boyle County taking the dugout opposite them, head coach Steve Leanhart’s squad knows exactly what they’re in for.
    After beating the Lady Rebels in a 4-0 game a little over two months ago, they should feel fairly good about that.

  • North Oldham falls in state...

    Walking off the Whitaker Bank Park field Tuesday afternoon, North Oldham head coach Erik Phelps didn’t have much to say. After his team’s 10-0 loss in the opening round of the KHSAA state baseball tournament, he didn’t really have to. In his eyes, it really only came down to one thing.
