  • Students recognized at district ceremony

    Several South Oldham Middle School students had PTA Reflections entries that were awarded medals at the district level ceremony on Nov. 11.

    The theme was, 'I Can Make a Difference by...' Students were asked to express this theme creatively in any of six categories.

    Shanna Gary received honorable mention for her poem, 'Wings of Fire,' and Emily Allen received a merit award for her visual arts piece entitled, 'Bright Ideas for a Bright Future.' In the category of film/video production, Shane Smith received an Award of Excellence for a video he produced, 'Go Green.'

  • A late winner

    BUCKNER - Late or not, Eric Dunlap's tip-in of his own missed shot at the buzzer was the game-winner Tuesday as the Oldham County Colonels beat Nelson County 62-60.

    "It might have been late, but a win is a win," Dunlap said. "It bounced right back at me. I was trying to get fouled and when I missed I knew I had to attack the basket and get a hand on it."

    The tip-in left Nelson County stunned after the Cardinals led through much of the game only to fall behind to a furious OCHS comeback in the final four minutes.

  • Oldham County taking on tough Dixie Heights in classic

    BUCKNER - The Oldham County Ronald McDonald Classic will showcase four local teams this year at Oldham County High School Saturday.

    The event, which raises money for the Ronald McDonald House in downtown Louisville, raised almost $3,000 last year and has raised more than $12,000 for the house in the last six years.

    "It goes for such a great cause, we always enjoy doing it," OCHS coach Gary Forrest said. "Plus, it's a chance to come and see some pretty good games."

  • Going to class

    GOSHEN - The steep learning curve of playing without their top two players continued for the North Oldham Lady Mustangs Monday in a 46-42 loss to Gallatin County.

    NOHS has been forced to open the season without starting guard Emily Crutcher, who had her tonsils removed last week, and forward Erin Overcash, who tore ligaments in her ankle. Both are expected to be out another two weeks.

    "We're the walking wounded right now," NOHS coach Nancy Martin said. "Pretty much 85 percent of our scoring in on the bench and will be for the next two weeks."

  • Just like you and me

    We don't get many police cars in our neighborhood, so I'm pretty sure my neighbors were a little curious about the silver Oldham County Police cruiser sitting in my driveway with blue lights flashing. Fear not, citizens. Officer Tom Douglas had arrived to give me a peek into Oldham County law enforcement.

  • Overdue fines used for children's book collection

    In the spirit of the holidays, the Oldham County Public Library is encouraging patrons to keep their books, videos and DVDs for a few extra days. Between Dec. 1 and Dec. 15, all overdue fines will be used to buy books for needy children and intellectually challenged adults in the area.

  • Accomodations at Henry's Ark questioned

    Sandra Oxendine's granddaughter loves visiting Henry's Ark. So when Oxendine was in town from Knoxville, Tenn., on Nov. 17, the pair was excited to see deer, horses, bison and maybe even a yak or capybara at the free private zoo on Rose Island Road just inside Oldham County.

    They'd always enjoyed their trips in the past, but this time, they were shocked by what they saw.
