Tourists enjoy visits to Bardstown


Hello from Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World.

Several cars from many states have been spotted in town. A few people from Wisconsin spent the weekend at the Bed and Breakfast of the Old Talbot Tavern. They said they enjoyed the small group in the pub/restaurant side of the Talbot Tavern on Friday night when Phillip Clarkson played and a larger band played in the side which holds the Bourbon Bar.

Spring is officially here. The kids began spring break on Monday and they are out for two weeks. A group of Bardstown High School seniors drove to Panama City, Fla., on Saturday morning for spring break.

On Friday I took a road trip with my friend, Jeff Lester, to retrieve his son from a visit he took to Greenwood, Ind. While we were there we stopped in about five minutes away and visited my friend, Jackie Castellano.

Jackie, like me, is a transplant into a city full of pavement. She is from Oceana, W.Va. We also got to meet her mom and dad. I hadn’t seen Jackie in a few years; she’s one of my sister Mary Kay consultants and that is how I met her.

Happy birthdays go out to Carmen “C.J.” Lester who turned 18 on March 29, and Bernard Rayburn who was 14 on March 31. Kimelia Osbourne, Cora Hampton and Kenny Scott all shared a March 31 birthday as well.

Belated anniversary wishes go out to Kathy and Junior Beavers who celebrated 49 years on March 20.

Easter is coming up and many churches are performing plays for the event.

Brother Ike Ferguson is still in poor health. He was released from the hospital and Brother Benjamin Obene has been a guest preacher at New Beginnings Baptist for two weeks in a row.

Bro. Obene is from Guana. Jeff and I attended church there Sunday. He and Brother Obene are close friends and we had not attended his church. It was a very nice message and everyone enjoyed it.

Prayer list this week includes Ike Ferguson, Judy Branham, Peggy Ferguson, Jim Hardesty, Jeff Lester, June Clark, Jeffrey Lester Jr., C.J. Lester, Raven Hall, Tracy Cissell and Kathy Beavers.

Eddie Avery needs prayers as well. He is suffering from lung cancer and emphysema. He is Kathy Beavers and June Clark’s brother.

I suppose that is all the news for this week. If you want information on tourism in Bardstown, it can be found online. Features are the around-the-town carriage, My Old Kentucky Home, the Old Kentucky Home dinner train and several other events that include concerts all year long.

Blessings be with you.
