  • Randy Acton’s commitment to service to his country and his community have been evident throughout his life.

    An Army veteran, Acton was president and CEO of U.S. Cavalry for 31 years and is involved in a variety of community organizations supporting the members of the military and their families.

    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.

  • Mike Roos discusses and signs copies of his book “One Small Town, One Crazy Coach: The Ireland Spuds and the 1963 Indiana High School Basketball Season,” from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at Barnes and Noble in Elizabethtown.
    The book is an underdog story about Coach Pete Gill and the Ireland High School Baseball team in Indiana. It follows the 1962-63 season that did not hold much hope in the beginning, according to a news release.

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

    Gregory is on the road 46 weeks a year performing a comedy act that takes folks back to a simpler time when people sat on the porch and talked to one another without a cellphone, according to a news release.

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

  • During this season of Thanksgiving, the Youth Theatre of Hardin County would like to thank the Hardin County community for the continued support we receive. Our 42-year history of being the oldest Kentucky Youth Theatre program, has only been possible with the encouragement and support that we receive from our many patrons.

  • Allegro Dance Theatre presents the happily-ever-after ballet Cinderella for the 22nd year Sunday.

    The ballet has sustained its appeal, in part, because it is a classic fairy tale, director Carol Zagar said.

    Sergei Prokofiev’s music is another lasting feature. He was a genius, she said.

    “Every time you hear the music, you hear something different,” Zagar said.
