  • Quilt owners sought

     On Dec. 3, I fell in the Big Lots parking lot in Shepherdsville.

    A very thoughtful couple offered me a quilt to use until an ambulance arrived.

    I want to get in touch with them so they can pick up their quilt. They can come by my home on Fisher Lane in Mount Washington.
