  • Locals earn taekwondo medals

    CRESTWOOD – Sean Ramey sent another Kentucky Taekwondo and Fitness group to U.S. Nationals earlier this month in San Jose, Calif., and the local competitors came back with a collection of awards.

    The group combined to win a sliver medal and four bronze medals, which Ramey, the facility’s owner and operator, called an “amazing accomplishment.”

    Dana DeYoung won the silver medal in the 33-40 women’s middleweight black belt division.

    Ty Clayton won bronze in the 8-9 boys black belt board breaking competition.

  • State Little League Tournament:...

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham’s 12-year-olds left no doubt this weekend that they were the class of their pool at the Little League State Tournament.

    NOLL went 3-0 in Pool A play at Ephram White Park, winning its three games by a combined 36 runs. That earned the squad a spot opposite Paintsville in a state semifinal that was played Tuesday night after the Era’s press deadline.

    NOLL capped off its perfect pool play record with a 10-4 win against a Campbellsville team that won the state title last season as 11-year-olds.

  • State Little League: NOLL 12...

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham has earned itself a day with no pressure after taking care of business this weekend.

    The NOLL 12's beat Corbin 16-6 in five innings Sunday afternoon in their second Pool A game of the state Little League tournament at Ephram White Park.

    That win, coupled with a 21-1 demolition of (Lexington) Eastern American Saturday and the results of the other two Pool A games, clinched NOLL a No. 1 seed for the tournament semifinals Tuesday.

  • Edlin wins in Buckner

    Prospect resident Taylor Edlin shot an 8-over 44 to win the nine-hole 11-13 girls division title at the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour event July 9 at Oldham County Country Club in Buckner.

    Edlin defeated Louisville’s Molly Bebelaar on the first hole of a sudden death playoff.

    Noah Dockery, a junior who plays high school ball at Spencer County, was named to the all-tournament team.

    “We had we very good season where several of our players performed at a very high level,” coach Ed Raymond said.

  • Beisner hopes first film raises...

    Feleica Stewart jokes that Goshen resident Thomas Beisner is another member of her family.

    That added a little bit of pressure for Beisner when he was producing a documentary about her son, late University of Kentucky basketball signee John Stewart.

    “She calls me her angel and her son which, now that the documentary is done, is a great thing,” Beisner said Monday. “But it added a lot of fear leading up to that.”
