LaRue County’s Trent Everett Byers will play the role of Grantaire in the chorus of the dramatic play Les Miserables, hosted by the Hardin County Performing Arts Center.

What started as a whisper of hope ended in a shout of joy in 1865 when freedom came, and that same enthusiasm swept LaRue County on Sunday, June 16, when celebrants gathered to remember that blessed news once again. And what better place to recall the original announcement of freedom than the “Cradle of Emancipation” where the noble ideas of freedom were born along with the noble man who would suffer martyrdom to achieve them.
