    Early childhood education is the key to the good life. You must push as much as possible into that absorbent, still malleable mind.

    Acton moved back to Hardin County after finishing his military service because he and his wife, Patsy, liked the area when he was previously stationed at Fort Knox during his basic armor officer training.

  • It’s for the kids, Eric Clemens and Joe Bennett explained, only half-joking.

    The Elizabethtown natives, both 31, know the phrase has become somewhat of a cliché, but in this case it’s true. Today at 7 p.m. at the Historic State Theater, the two will host “The Eric & Joe Before Thanksgiving Christmas Variety Show,” an event to benefit WHAS Crusade for Children.

  • Comedian James Gregory will be working for laughs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    He also can be heard weekly on popular radio shows such as “Rick and Bubba,” “John Boy and Billy” and “Bob and Tom.”
