  • Dance the night away

    Hands clasped, two young ballroom dancers whirl around the small studio at Louisville’s Ballroom East.

    East Oldham Middle School seventh-grader Oliver Kratholm and his partner Hannah Purdy, a seventh-grader at Johnson Traditional Middle School, practice for Saturday’s Derby City DanceSport Championships at the Galt House in Louisville.

    Since they began dancing together in 2010, the duo have traveled around the country for competitions, danced in England and become United States national champions.

  • Simpson honored for milestone

    As South Oldham High School boys’ basketball players performed warm-up drills before their home game against Spencer County Feb. 16, Dragons’ Coach Steve Simpson went through his routine as well.

    He chatted with players and coaches and scoured his notes.

    But before the teams made their way to mid-court for the tip-off, SOHS athletic director Mitchell Irvin grabbed a microphone and led Simpson to the court.
