In keeping with Ruth’s wishes, there will be no funeral home visitation. Family and friends are welcome to graveside services at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens in Quiet Dell, Mount Clare, at 1 p.m. Wednesday with the Rev. Bert Coffman officiating.

  • 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.
