  • North, South boys meet for fourth time tonight

    South Oldham was in a similar situation one year ago at this time.

    The Dragons had split their two regular season matchups with Oldham County and beaten the Colonels in the District 29 title. The teams met a fourth time in the Region 8 championship game, and South beat OC 2-0.

    This season South split two regular season games with North Oldham and beat the Mustangs 3-1 in last week's District 29 final. Now the Dragons will play North a fourth time, with everything on the line.

  • Gang cases split, five of eight heading to grand jury

    Five men charged with crimes ranging from conspiracy to commit murder to gang activity and drug possession are having their cases sent to a grand jury.

    The five are half of a group of eight individuals arrested more than two weeks ago in La Grange and alleged to be involved with the Southside Crips gang.

    Four individuals had their cases referred to a grand jury for possible indictment after a preliminary hearing on Wednesday. Those four are Thomas L. Wenz, 22, of Shelbyville and Roger D. Wilson, 19, Brandon L. Davis, 18, and Felix A. Myers, 20, all of La Grange.

  • Faith event puts rivalries aside

    When students from the county schools meet on a football field, it’s usually about competition. Last Wednesday was different.

    “This is a day when they lay down their rivalries and come together in Jesus’ name,” said Steve Wigginton, area director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).

  • South football claims first outright district

    TAYLOR MILL – South Oldham’s road to the Class 5A, District 5 title was filled with four distinct tests.

      The Dragons had to best Kentucky quarterback commit Drew Barker and Conner Sept. 27, avoid a letdown against Grant County Oct. 4, beat defending state runner-up Cooper Oct. 11 and stop undefeated Scott’s powerful run game Friday at Eagle Stadium.

      South passed the last of those four exams Friday, taking down the Eagles 30-20 and clinching the school’s first outright district title in the process.

  • Mustang football playing for District 3 crown Friday night

      GOSHEN – North Oldham has had a couple of weeks to prepare for its most important regular season game of the year.

      The Class 4A No. 8 Mustangs (6-2, 3-0 4A, District 3) blitzed overmatched Atherton 56-7 on Oct. 17 and now head to Collins Friday for a matchup against the No. 6 Titans (6-2, 3-0).

      The winner Friday in Shelbyville guarantees itself home games for at least the first two playoff rounds, while the loser will likely have a tougher first round matchup and a second round road game.

  • Luck of the Draw

      Some Kentucky hunters might go their whole lives without drawing a tag to hunt bull elk. Ali Powell, La Grange, got one on her first try.

      “My husband had been putting in for years to hunt elk,” Powell said. “When it was time to do it this past year, I told him to put my name in, too. It was the very last day to register.”

      Powell, who is relatively new to hunting, was surprised to learn that she had earned a first-week, bull elk tag for the firearm season, arguably the most coveted draw.
