  • Judges explain state laws allowing early releases

    Frustrated by a judicial system that seems to result in a revolving door for at least one specific criminal in their town, Pewee Valley City Council members asked for an explanation.

    At their monthly meeting Monday night, council members heard from 12th Judicial District Judges Jerry Crosby and Diana Wheeler, who serve Oldham, Henry and Trimble Counties. The judges fielded questions from council members and provided a description of the criminal release process as it relates to House Bill 463.

  • Farm-to-table returns to St. Francis gala

    For the second year in a row, food from several local farms will highlight a farm-to-table dinner fundraiser for St. Francis school in Goshen.

    The “Our Good Earth” Gala, an annual event for the school, will take place this Saturday on the front field of the Goshen school’s campus.

  • Pastor marks 30 years at Southeast

    Even after 30 years of preaching with the same church Pastor Greg Allen still comes in every day excited and ready to work. At the rate Southeast Christian church is growing, especially on Allen’s Crestwood campus, his workload is likely to increase but he said he’s ok with that.

    “It’s a good problem to have,” he said of the growth.

  • NOHS Boys Golfers Make the Cut

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham fought tooth-and-nail with tough Region 6 competition to make the KHSAA state tournament.

    Once the Mustangs got to Bowling Green they found themselves fighting more against the course than the competition.

    North fought wind and a tough course to shoot a 319 Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club, allowing the Mustangs to make the 12-team cut and advance to Wednesday’s final round.

    Visit oldhamera.com for coverage of the final round, which was played after the Era’s press deadline.

  • Cardinals better than schedule

    This year’s Louisville football team is the ultimate victim of circumstance.

    Coach Charlie Strong has built a juggernaut with a loaded offense and a defense that leads the nation in fewest points allowed.

    The No. 8 Cardinals (5-0) could, on any given Saturday, likely hold their own against any other team in the top 10. Should they beat Rutgers Thursday night (7:30 p.m., ESPN) as expected, they’ll have clinched bowl eligibility earlier than almost any team in America.

  • Kraus keeps OC unbeaten

    LOUISVILLE – Dan Schulz had a message for Kasey Kraus at halftime of Oldham County’s game against Assumption Monday.

     “She came off the field after the first half and I told her, ‘I think you’re going to score,’” said Schulz, the Lady Colonels’ head coach. “She was playing so hard and hustling for the ball. I just felt good about the runs she was making and how she was working hard.”
