  • Down on the farm

    Area residents had a chance to get down on the farm this weekend.

    A free local farm tour was held Saturday giving participants an inside glimpse into live farming through the eyes of real Kentucky farm women.

    The event was sponsored by the Kentucky Livestock Coalition, the Elizabethtown Junior Woman’s Club, and CommonGround, an agency that speaks to women leaders, mothers and grocery shoppers about the advancement of techniques and technologies on farms to produce fresh and safe food.

  • Bluegrass Festival strums a popular tune

    Autumn Stonebraker is accustomed to being around bluegrass music, but the concept of a bluegrass festival is not widespread near her home in Texas.

    Because of that, she believes Vine Grove may be on to something.

    Stonebraker was one of many who congregated at Vine Grove Optimist Park this weekend to bask in the lilting tones of banjos, fiddles, mandolins, and earthy vocals worn by time and experience.

  • Radcliff Days puts fun on display

    Radcliff reveled in fun Saturday as it launched Radcliff Days, which turned Freedoms Way into a cornucopia of festival offerings.

    Children playfully toppled in the Fun Derby bounce house while others tested their strength with a hammer to win a prize.

    Between the games, food and music, it gave a diverse plate for visitors to taste. Bluesy folk rockers Mamakitty Southwood performed an acoustic set in front of Colvin Community Center as arts and crafts vendors offered their wares inside.
