  • Band of Banks looking for local venue

     What do three bankers and a guy named Banks do in their spare time? Form a band, of course.

    Chris Buchanan, Charles DeRoche, Matt Neel and Pat Banks make up the local band Poor Man’s Grave.

  • Bardstown museum loses founder

    This will be the first year that the Bardstown Civil War Museum and its corresponding venues will be operating without the help of Rita Herrmann.

    Herrmann, the long-time curator and co-founder of the museum, passed away last year at the age of 86.

    “Rita was a character,” said current manager Kenny Johnson. “She ran this place seven days a week, and she was in her 80s.”

    Johnson said Herrmann had seen the museum come to life years ago, piece-by-piece.
