VINE GROVE — Marie Eubank Turner, 85, has decided it's time.
After a lifetime of writing and saving her poetry, she recently published two books full of faith-inspired poems she hopes will be read and heeded.
The former Fort Knox teacher and nurse said she felt she needed to do something with the poems that have been collecting over her 85 years.
"I have stacks of notebooks of poems," she said. "I feel like there's a message there that people need to hear."
