  • Transition back to tavern brings downtown building full circle

    Moses Black is back.

    In name, at least.

    Bardstown’s newest bar was once the “genteel home of Moses Black,” as it was referred to in an 1831 announcement, named after a tavern keeper and coppersmith in 19th century Bardstown. Since then it has been many things, including a tavern and stagecoach stop, a pool hall (twice), a sporting goods store and a bookstore.

    On Saturday, the building located on the east side of North Third starts its next chapter, with the opening of Moses Black Tavern.

  • Flaget staff works to reduce early elective deliveries

    In 2008, the Flaget Memorial Hospital staff began a journey to decrease elective deliveries before 39 weeks gestation in an effort to improve perinatal care.

  • McCoy bill would allow sale of vintage bourbon

    If you’ve got a bottle of Old Grand-Dad in your cupboard, it might be worth a good price to a tavern owner who could sell it to customers if a bill that passed the Kentucky House Monday becomes state law.

    However, that’s only if the Kentucky Senate follows the House in passing vintage liquor legislation sponsored by Bardstown Republican Chad McCoy and the governor signs it.
