Randy and Cathy Jefferson of Pursglove, Margaret Jefferson of Morgantown, Jacqueline McElroy and George of Fairmont, Valarie Harris and Mitch of Morgantown, and Janet Bradley and Benjamin of Westover; two aunts, maternal aunt Eunice Mollard of Osage and paternal aunt Fannie Malone of Morgantown; and eight grandchildren, Amanda Faulknier, LaVaughn and Traivion Jefferson, Cymbri and Harlen Jefferson, Kyliyah, Dymond, Brianna and Shamar McDonald. A host of nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, cousins and many friends survive.

  • 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.
