    The issue: Local alcohol option vote
    Our view: Recipe has changed

    Like many issues under Kentucky law, the local-option alcohol vote turns out to be a lot less clear than originally thought.

  • Dinner fit for Lions

    County residents found a tasty way to support the community Saturday at Elizabethtown High School.
    The Elizabethtown Lions Club hosted its 69th annual chicken barbecue to support causes and charities the organization has supported during its 70 years serving the community.
    The main service the club supports is offering free vision screenings to children and making screenings and glasses available to people who can’t afford them.
    The smell of chicken wafted through the air as James and Vickie Flood, of Radcliff, ate their meals.

  • Guests support clinic through food, art

    Taste of the Heartland and art auction sold a lot of tickets to supporters of the Community Clinic of Hardin and LaRue Counties in Elizabethtown.

    Some of the purchasers of the more than 200 tickets sold chose not to attend the Friday event at the Historic State Theater, which is typical, said Jane Cornell, executive director for the clinic.

    Some people buy the $50 tickets only to support the cause, helping to reach the $40,000 goal from ticket sales and art auction needed to keep the free clinic going, she said.
