  • Back home

    Oldham County is a special place to me.

    I first came to this county in the summer of 2011 as a 20-year old college kid. My only day-to-day journalism experience to that point had been a spring on the Western Kentucky baseball beat for my college paper.

    As a summer intern I was going to get my first taste of sports reporting at a professional newspaper.

    Then two weeks before I started Mickey Patterson, Era sports editor since sometime during the Reagan Administration, stepped down.

  • Local rugby champion

    While Oldham County is not considered a hot bed for rugby players, the county can now say it has produced a national champion.

    Erin Overcash, a 2009 graduate of North Oldham High School, recently won the USA rugby’s club national championship.

    Overcash was a very talented athlete for the Mustangs. She played basketball and track, winning two state championships in the high jump.

    Joe Wortham Jr., 6, caught these fish on a recent Saturday afternoon at his grandparents’ pond in Smithfield in Henry County. Joe has been fishing since he was 3 years old, but this catfish was his biggest catch so far. He will enter first grade next week at La Grange Elementary school.

  • Local golfers do well at KPGA...

    The Henry County Country Club hosted the Kentucky PGA junior tournament July 31 and Aug. 1. The tournament was comprised of 9 and 6 hole tournaments for boys and girls aged 8-12.

    Several local golfers competed over the two-day tournament and several of them did well enough to make the leader boards.

    Lyman Brackett, an eight-year-old from Goshen, finished in fourth in the boys 10 and under 9 hole tournament. He ended at 13 strokes above par but was only seven shots back of the eventual winner.
