  • FACES & PLACES: Hardin County Hang-outs: Double L Grocery

    Double L Grocery stocks a little bit of everything. Customers can purchase a loaf of bread, hardware and hunting supplies at the western Hardin County store. The store also fills a role in the community as a live-music venue.

    Musicians filled the store with the sounds of bluegrass and gospel on a Saturday evening in mid-April for Lucy’s Saturday Night Jam.

    The weekly jam began as an outdoor event last year as a result of conversations between the Lucas family and local musician Jackie Dixon and his family, store co-owner Lucy Lucas said.

  • Swope brothers named Distinguished Citizens

    When it comes to serving the community, it’s all in the family for this year’s recipients of the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Lincoln Heritage Council Boy Scouts of America.

    Bob and Carl Swope, both owners of car dealerships in Elizabethtown, said service was instilled in them by their grandfather, father and mother.

    “I didn’t know I had a choice,” Carl said, laughing. “Of course, we had a choice, but it was instilled by example early on.”

  • Road plan includes money to extend Ring Road

    With legislative approval for right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation, Ring Road’s western end likely could be extended to link with Interstate 65 and U.S. 31W possibly sometime in 2017.

    “I never thought about it being that soon,” Elizabethtown Mayor Edna Berger said. “That would be awesome.”

    Since last September, Ring Road has been open to the Western Kentucky Parkway. That intersection is only eight-tenths of a mile across fields to Interstate 65.
