    Ladies and gentlemen, start the engine. The engine of redevelopment in downtown Elizabethtown, that is.

    The return this weekend of the immensely successful Cruisin’ the Heartland is another opportunity to remember yesteryear, the music, the dances, seeing movies at the State Theater and admiring the cars.

    When a Kentucky native and now Utah real estate developer announced plans to invest $4.5 million into Radcliff Village to develop more usable square footage, a burst of enthusiasm enveloped Radcliff. We welcome new destination shops and dining variety in Radcliff and believe announcement of economic development is a significant signal for all of Hardin County.
     

    Radcliff Village will set a new standard for the city and county. Perhaps it’s time other retail space developers look at how they’re positioned to serve the needs of Hardin County.

    You are only as old as you feel and Youth Theatre of Hardin County hasn’t lost the spring in its step as it celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
