  • Stephens: End of my 'Era...

    I promise I wasn’t trying to give myself a nickname.

    I sat in my new office at The Oldham Era in August of 2013, thinking of possible usernames for a Twitter account I’d use on the job.

    Taking into account Twitter’s 140-character confines, I wanted to create a handle with the fewest possible characters.

    My solution was to take the paper’s name and combine it with my first name. “EraBrad” was born.

  • Girls Basketball: South loss...

    CRESTWOOD – For the first time since the current District 29 was created in 2006, one district team not named Oldham County or South Oldham will claim a spot in next month’s Region 8 Tournament.

    That outcome was ensured Monday night when Trimble County notched a 51-48 win at South, thus claiming the No. 1 seed in the upcoming district tournament.

    Trimble (13-8, 2-0 district) will face fourth-seed North Oldham (12-9, 0-2) in the district semifinals, no matter the outcome of the team’s regular season meeting Friday night in Goshen.
