  • Vidito, veterans remember World War II on Pearl Harbor Day

    Among many veterans in the audience for a Pearl Harbor Day presentation at The Gallery Thursday was a veteran of World War II, Charles O’Bryan, who listened intently as actor and musician Gary Vidito told the story of another Navy man, his father Jewell Marcus Vidito, in his father’s words and songs of his generation.

    O’Bryan was one of six brothers who served in the war. Two of them were lost aboard the U.S.S. Arizona at Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack on Dec. 7, 1941.

    Their names are on the war memorial on Court Square.

  • Jim Beam Holiday ‘Feastival’ benefits Flaget Cancer Center

    Susan Elmore had never seen Jim Beam’s American Stillhouse before Friday night but her first impression, at the Clermont distillery’s first Holiday Feastival, was remarkable.

    “It was so beautiful!” she said.

    The bourbon-glazed ham dinner served 300 people in a tent beneath hundreds of soft white lights and holiday greenery.

    While the setting was elegant, the attire was casual, and tickets were only $10 for a sumptuous spread.

  • Christmas Tour of Homes celebrates décor, heritage

    Bilbo Baggins doesn’t live there, but a visitor might get that impression from the round windows in the front room downstairs and a large bedroom above that bathe those rooms in sunlight.

  • Pups on parade

    Christmas in Bardstown is going to the dogs — in a good way.

    Children’s author Leigh Anne Florence’s famous Kentucky wiener dogs, Woody and Chloe, will be leading this year’s holiday parade downtown Dec. 7.

    They are the stars of her books, and thus represent this year’s parade theme, “A Storybook Christmas.”

  • Bethlehem students raising funds for Puerto Rico

    A senior Social Justice class at Bethlehem High School is hosting a volleyball tournament this evening for an Advent outreach project to benefit Puerto Rico.

    Katie Kiefer, who teaches the semester-long course at Bethlehem, said the students typically do two service projects a year, one for Lent and one for Advent.

    "Ultimately, we came up with the idea to help Puerto Rico because the devastation was so intense," she said, referencing how Puerto Rico was catastrophically affected when hit by Hurricane Maria earlier this year.
