Liz loved her job as a salesperson at Hyams Garden and Accent Store, where her excellent taste, love of decorating, and winning personality were put to use.  She will be remembered for her delightful sense of humor, creativity, intelligence, and deep devotion to her family. She cherished her sons with all her heart and dedicated her life to their care and well-being.

  • 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.
