  • Lady Dragons Overwhelm Oldham

    CRESTWOOD — With the final seconds of the first half winding down against Oldham County Friday night, South Oldham senior guard Jasmine Whitfield took a pass on the right wing, cross-over dribbled from behind the arc, squared up and nailed a three-pointer.

    Whitfield kept her right shooting hand held high in a pose as she turned and skipped off the court towards the locker room to the celebration of her teammates.

    Not that the Lady Dragons needed the shot.

  • La Grange Urban Short Track...

    Do you have any routines before or during a bike race?

    I sleep in as late as I can and get here right before sign up ends. I’ll get on the course, maybe do one practice lap and get on the course and race. I’m a procrastinator. So I guess that’s my key to success.

    Guys and gals, welcome to our fifth Grand Stamm — LIVE! chat.

    I hope you all had a happy new year over the weekend! I know I did.

    As always, I'm here to answer any questions you have on sports in Oldham County or just sports in general. I'm pretty affluent to what's going on in both spectrums.

  • Not around but through

    After he wound up the ramp circling the La Grange Welcome Center on his mountain bike, Louisville’s Joe Driver prepared for something he’d never done before. He pointed his front tire toward the door and pedaled harder.

    But as he made his way through the back door of the welcome center during the La Grange Urban Short Track Series Saturday, Driver immediately squeezed his brake handles.

    He deftly steered around a racer who had slipped on the welcome center’s tile floor and fallen off his bike.

  • The Sports Primer: 1.3

    In its first three legs, the La Grange Urban Short Track Series provided mountain biking around a lake, squeezing through a narrow, brick alley, traversing through rolling fields, around the La Grange Skate Park and even over the front steps of The Oldham Era's office on South First Street.

    The fourth edition brought a whole new concept. Not only did racers bike through one building, they biked through two.

    In Saturday's races, racers biked through the Goose Creek Cycle shop on East Main Street, as well as the La Grange Welcome Center.

  • Grand Stamm: Wrasslin'...

    I’d either walked into an auction or a cock fight.

    My girlfriend Jenny (who I’d talked into coming with me) and I already had struggled to find Louisville’s Davis Arena. What looked like a storage warehouse also houses Ohio Valley Wrestling.

    An unlit parking lot and no clear signs on Old Sheperdsville Road didn’t help.

    We’d come to chat with Kenny Bolin, who grew up in La Grange, but we wound up getting a full taste of professional wrestling — more than I hoped for.

    It's not uncommon to hear about older aged people breaking their backs. Their bones are generally weaker than younger people's and more prone to breaking.

    Just a senior at Kentucky Country Day High School in Louisville, Crestwood resident Nik Gorman has already broken his back. Twice.
