  • My Living Will – Marital Love

    What do kids think about marriage?

    Ten-year-old Kristen says, “No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.”

    Camille, 10, says you might be able to tell if a couple is married based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.

    Lynnette, 8, says about dating, “Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.”

  • Levitch living his dream as U of L walk-on

    David Levitch was in a familiar place when the University of Louisville Cardinals took the floor this fall for their first scrimmage at the KFC Yum! Center.

    Levitch, a lifelong U of L fan, grew up going to games with his parents at the Yum! Center and, before that, Freedom Hall.

    But this time Levitch wasn’t in the stands with his mom or dad. He was trotting out of the tunnel in a red-and-white warm-up uniform, taking the court as a member of the Cardinals basketball team.

    The environment nearly overwhelmed Levitch at first, he said.

  • County seniors represent schools for final time

    SHIVELY – The stands were mostly empty, the field was in rough shape, the temperature was in the teens and the game was played with 10-minute quarters instead of the usual 12.

    But for the six North Oldham and South Oldham football seniors who took the field at Western High School Dec. 12, it was one last chance to represent their high schools.

  • Furious North comeback leads to OT win

    GOSHEN – There wasn’t much hope for North Oldham with four minutes to play Tuesday night.

    The Mustangs trailed North Hardin 60-44. They’d scored just eight points in the second half, struggling with turnovers, shooting and rebounding.

    But a Jon Jon Henry basket and free throws led to a Chris Burton three. That led to a Henry three and a Trevor Burton 3-point play.

    In just a few possessions, North Oldham got back in the game.

  • South takes care of Trimble

    BEDFORD – South Oldham has woken up.

    Kyle Young scored 26 points Monday as the Dragons ran past overmatched Trimble County 93-40. The win was South’s second straight after a disappointing 60-42 loss to Collins Dec. 9 in the team’s home opener.

  • Lady Dragons fall to Highlands for first loss of year

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham finally slipped on its tough early season schedule Saturday.

    Highlands’ Brianna Adler scored 19 points as the Bluebirds beat the Lady Dragons 57-47 Saturday, marking South’s first loss of the season.

    The Lady Dragons (2-1) were playing without starting point guard Abbey VanZant, who suffered a concussion Wednesday in a win over Floyd Central (Ind.). South coach Christy Higdon said she expects VanZant to return for the Lady Dragons’ next game, Wednesday at Gallatin County.
