The family would like to thank Cora Fazio and her wonderful staff for their kindness, compassion and love, while caring for Helen.

The family requests memorial contributions be made to the Amedysis Hospice Care, P.O. Box 366, Anmoore, WV 26323.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
