    About 15 years ago, a woman approached local writer Paul Jordan at the VFW hall in Lebanon about an interesting story.
    She knew of Jordan’s history as a journalist - he had a distinguished career with the Associated Press before going into public service - and laid out the horrifying true details of her family life that eventually became “Descent to Sudden Death,” Jordan’s sixth book, which he signs 2-4 p.m. Saturday at Bardstown Booksellers.

  • Nancy Miles has a suggestion for anyone who is interested in old barns, landscapes or quilting. On the next nice sunny day, consider traveling Marion County’s barn quilt trail.
    “I’ve lived here all my life, and I’ve been to ends of the county that I didn’t even know existed,” she said.
    Miles helped paint some of the 8-foot-by-8-foot patches herself, but she’s been impressed with the variety of the patterns around the county.
    And she thinks you’ll be impressed, too.
