  • Hardin County youth are invited to share an evening of faith and inspiration this weekend.

    Impact, a Christian concert and worship event, is at 4 p.m. Saturday at City Park North Amphitheater in Radcliff. The event was created by Carol Gillenwater Baker, worship minister and coordinator of ConnectingU2Christ Student Ministries at New River Worship Center. This year, the event’s second, youth ministers at other area churches have joined in coordinating the event and spreading the word about its mission.

  • The Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind, returns Saturday to the Brown-Pusey House but this time as a part of a murder mystery.

    The first time Lind visited Elizabethtown was in 1851. Documents from the Hardin County History Museum say she was under contract with P.T. Barnum to tour the United States. She performed a concert in Nashville and stopped in Elizabethtown while traveling by stagecoach on the way to Louisville. When people learned she was there they begged her to sing so she stood on the stone steps in front of the house. She sang several songs.

Hardin Post No. 113 of Elizabethtown, the largest American Legion Post in the state of Kentucky, was honored to host the homecoming.

  • State Sen. Dennis Parrett, D-Elizabethtown, asks a question about the Kentucky State Police’s operating budget during the September meeting of the Interim Joint Committee on Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection.

  • Bridge Community in Elizabethtown hosts a concert by an award-winning singer-songwriter Friday night with a local musician opening the show.

    In 1999, McVicker won the GMA Dove Award Song of the Year with the late Rich Mullins for “My Deliverer.” His latest album is “Underneath.”

  • Maybe it was a sign.

    Last weekend, as I’ve done for the past four years, I walked to downtown Elizabethtown to check out Via Colori, the street painting festival. For those who are unfamiliar with the free event, Via Colori features artists who paint or chalk their artwork onto the streets and sidewalks in and around the square.
