  • Tickets are now available for final Mid-Winter Feaste

    Tickets are now available for the 22nd annual and final performances of the Mid-Winter Feaste, which is produced by Bardstown Community Theatre. Director Mike Wilson said when he had the idea for the first performance in 1988 he never expected it to last this long. Some of the performers have been there for every performance. They are Gerald Hood as the Duke and Jack Lundy as the fool. Many of the other cast members have been with the group for as many as 15 years and when rehearsals begin it is a homecoming of sorts.

  • Years ago in The Standard: 10 years ago - January 2001

    Fifty years ago, a new chapter of Nelson County History began with the opening of Flaget Memorial Hospital in Bardstown.

    The 36-bed facility was the dream of local doctors, government officials and local citizens.

    The goal was to meet the health care needs of the community — a goal that is still part of the hospital’s mission.

    “The reason we were started was to offer health care,” said Sr. Earline Hobbs SCN, mission vice president. “Today, Christ’s ministry of caring for the sick is still going on here.”
